My nephew had his big outting proclaiming Jesus saved him from his sins . . .
I hope he is able to live without sin.

Thanks for your reply. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a moment to discuss this a little bit:
This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ
I am curious about what "through" means.
I have said many times I don’t know how anyone could stand up to judgment without Christ
Could you expand on this a little for me?
Thank you, happy new year!
1 John 2:26-27
26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. 27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.
1 Corinthians 2:10
"But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God."
"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you."
"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH ..."
2 Cor. 13:14,
"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all."

More so than any modern popular faith Christianity pushes the concept that their relationship with their god is more personal and self centric than any other.
This learned and reinforced behavior causes the ego (A.K.A. god/jesus) of the individual to need constant reinforcement and attention.
When all you do is talk to yourself you need a lot of subterfuge to keep the lie alive.

They are called CHRIST ians for a reason...
If we don't believe yet in Christ, why would we fear in the Hell He created????
"Gird up your loins" is a safe, flowery way to say. "Stop crapping your pants."
In the same way when the Lord addressed King Cyrus He told him that he would "Loose the loins of kings".
. . . and when people fell and worshipped him he accepted that worship when any other man would have been killed . . .
