In the kingdom of God there is no room for evil and its historical effects. Christ as the judge of each individual human being removes all evil from us and makes it forgotten. This means demolition and annihilation – all guilt and all evil are judged and rejected. However judging also means restoring. Human beings will be restored by God's judgment and thus liberated into an eschatological communion with Christ. Every human will be confronted with his deeds before Christ. But the restorative truth of Jesus Christ is stronger than the deadly fright in view of one's disgrace, and we can hope for the mercy of our eschatological judge.
