Judgment (bema) Seat of Christ – Mormon Quotes

2 Nephi 33:7-9; “I have charity for my people, and great faith in Christ that I shall meet many souls spotless at his judgment-seat.  8 I have charity for the Jew—I say Jew, because I mean them from whence I came.  9 I also have charity for the Gentiles. But behold, for none of these can I hope except they shall be reconciled unto Christ, and enter into the narrow gate, and walk in the strait path which leads to life, and continue in the path until the end of the day of probation.

John 3:18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    “Why is this Jewish man worshipping [sic] Christ in BC 544?”

    What a silly question. It’s true that by the time the Messiah (Christ) was born, many Jews had a skewed idea of what his role would be, but to say that no Jew (especially among the Prophets) understood the true nature of Christ’s mission before he was born is irresponsible. After all, the whole point of the Old Testament was to point forward to Christ and his mission.

    One might just as easily ask this question of Isaiah:
    “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:4–6)
    Why is this Jewish man talking about Christ’s Atonement in BC 740?

    Besides, we know that in 1 Nephi 11, Nephi specifically received a vision of the birth and ministry of Christ. In this vision, Nephi is taught about the true mission of the Messiah and his importance in God’s plan.

    Classic theological hypocrisy.
