9789351480808: Judgment According to the Deeds: An Appraisal of Article X of the Presbyterian Church of Indias Confession of Faith

The Presbyterian Church of India's Confession of Faith Article X deals with the doctrine of the Last Day. Its main theme is the resurrection of the dead and the subsequent "final judgment" where the living and the dead "shall be judged according to the deeds done in this present life." But the understanding and interpretation of the word "shall be judged according to the deeds" has often been held in tension with the basic theological principle of the Reformation, namely, "justification by grace alone through faith." Beside this tension it poses, Article X is silent upon important eschatological themes like the immediate state of the dead, the second coming of Christ and millennialism which were major concerns of Mizo Christians soon after they embraced Christianity. The main focus of the Article X thus seems to be the impending judgment according to one's deeds on the Last Day. Taking all these into account, this book seeks to analyse the concept and the nature of "shall be judged according to the deeds" in Article X. Asserting the interrelatedness of the concepts "judgment according to the deeds" and "justification by grace alone through faith," this book explores the biblical and theological background, and analyses the contextual understanding, of the concept of "judgment" in the afterlife and seeks its implication for shaping the present eschatological imagination of the Mizo Presbyterian Church in particular, and the wider Presbyterian families in India in general.
