These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.

Bible Study Guide:

He Does Not Leave the Guilty Unpunished

By Scarlett Stough


To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, The Judgment to Come.

1. Exodus 33:18-19 What did Moses ask God to let him see? What did God reveal to Moses?

2. Exodus 34:6-7 God proclaimed his name in answer to Moses’ request. How do you feel as you read each facet of God’s name, especially “he does not leave the guilty unpunished?”

3. Ezekiel 18:25 What does God reply to those who say he is unfair? (Be sure to read the surrounding text.) This passage is addressed to the ancient nation of Israel, why would this apply to Christians today?

4. Ezekiel 18:4; Romans 3:23 What is our legal status in God’s court? Why do you think he has the right and authority to judge?

5. Matthew 25:31-46; II Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:11-15 What can we learn from each of these passages about judgment? For instance: Who is the Judge? What is the basis for the judgment?

6. Matthew 25:30; Acts 24:24-27; Hebrews 10:26-31; 9:27-28 How are the guilty described as feeling when they have to face the consequences?

7. John 3:13-21; Romans 8:1-4 What hope do the guilty have for mercy?

8. Matthew 7:15-27; James 2:14-26; I John 3:4; Revelation 21:6-8 Who will be denied a pardon and suffer the death penalty? And why?

9. Romans 14; Matthew 7:1-5; I Corinthians 4:1-5; 6:1-11 How do we become Christ-like in our judgments with each other? What effect will our judgments about others have on God’s judgment upon us?
