Scofield's Reference Notes
2 Corinthians 5



Verse 9


(Greek - ἀβαρής).

Verse 10

For we must all appear

The judgment of the believer's works, not sins, is in question here. These have been atoned for, and are "remembered no more forever" Hebrews 10:17 but every work must come into judgment,; Matthew 12:36; Romans 14:10; Galatians 6:7; Ephesians 6:8; Colossians 3:24; Colossians 3:25. The result is "reward" or "loss" (of the reward), "but he himself shall be saved" 1 Corinthians 3:11-15.

This judgment occurs at the return of Christ Matthew 16:27; Luke 14:14; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 2 Timothy 4:8; Revelation 22:12.
