Christians will not be judged:
As a person passes from death directly to life that person must have a determination by God as to being just or unjust.
And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.
4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
5 And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the Lord stood by.
Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.
Mankind stands "accused" by Satan, not God. The Angel of the Lord, who may be your "Christ", takes away iniquity of his "chosen" without judgement or condemnation. His followers are given new clothes and new directions.
Yes, all people have and are sinning and are accused by Satan. All people are also judged as to be worthy or unworthy for salvation.
Total disregard of John 1:19-23 shows total disregard for dividing the words of truth and with that said then no more can be added.
Again it is written - 2Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Who is worthy of salvation? Are you?
What do you do with teachings that contradict the word of your LORD? Do you totally disregard them, or do you do mental gymnastics to justify them because you want them to be true?
Again, who you gonna believe, Paul or Jesus? It's up to you, I guess.
Jesus taught Paul and Paul is the author of what Jesus taught him. Jesus wrote no known book. The red letter editions are not what Jesus wrote but what the Apostles wrote of Jesus. To believe what one Apostle wrote and disbelieve what another Apostle wrote shows your own errors of interpretation.
Seede, you just really don't care about the whole "rewritten & retranslated by untold amounts of men" thing, do you?
So when there's a contradiction, Paul and John trump the written words of Jesus, according to you. Okay, then. Good to know.
Jesus is the tree and John and Paul are the branches.
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.
'In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David's line; he will do what is just and right in the land.
Listen, High Priest Joshua, you and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.
And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord
The mistake you have made is that the NT does not contain Jesus' writings. All of the NT contains the Apostles writings so how could Paul or John trump Jesus' writings? Jesus has no writings to my knowledge. If you can produce Jesus' writings then the NT is not necessary.
Your excuse doesn't explain why, when there's a contradiction, you give more weight to John and Paul's supposed words than you do towards the supposed words that are credited of your LORD. I'm afraid I can't trust your interpretation of the Bible, Jesus' words or Christianity.
Yes it is believe by the Christians that Jesus is the Branch. Jesus is the Branch of God and He is also the Tree of man.
It was you who brought the accusation of impropriety against two of the authors of the NT bible. How do you justify that decision?
If you (by your own mouth) have said " I can't trust your interpretation of the Bible, Jesus' words or Christianity." and then quote the very bible that you condemn, then you need to re examine your self. You are very confused.
Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.
I can't trust your interpretation of the Bible, Jesus' words or Christianity.
