Judgement

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

The primary word translated “judgment” is from the Greek word krisis. This word krisis means, “a critical period of time, decisive moment, turning point or deciding time” (see Arthur P. Adams, Judgment, 1885; Jack E. Jacobson, The Concept of Circularity, page 36) and is where we get our English word “crisis.” The American Heritage Dictionary defines “crisis” as “a crucial or decisive point or situation; a turning point.” Thus divine judgment is the divine crisis in creation. It is the divinely appointed “turning point.”

Arthur P. Adams (1845-1925) has well written in his 1885 work on Judgment:

Judgment is given to man as a blessing and favor, and when such time arrives for any individual, class of individuals or the world, it is cause for great rejoicing and thanksgiving. Read, for example, the 96th Psalm, and notice how all people and even inanimate nature are called upon to exult and rejoice. …

This presentation of the nature of the time of judgment as a period of great rejoicing and special blessing is in most striking contrast with the orthodox view, which makes the judgment day a time of almost unmitigated horror and dread.
