With Respect to Him Being the Judge
(A) God Alone Is the Judge
When our Father Abraham interceded for the people of Sodom, he gave the Lord the title, "the Judge of all the earth" (Gen. 18:25). Also, David said in his Psalms: "He shall judge the world' (Ps. 9:8), "He shall judge the peoples righteously" (Ps. 96:10), "He shall judge the world with righteousness" (Ps. 96:13); (Ps. 98:9), "O God, to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth! Rise up, O Judge of the earth" (Ps. 94:1,2), and: "Let the heavens declare His righteousness, for God Himself is Judge" (Ps. 50:6). And St. Paul says in his Epistle to the Romans:
"For then how will God judge the world?" (Rom. 3:6)
It is natural for God to judge the world because He examines the hearts and minds, reads the thoughts, and knows the deeds of everybody. Thus He judges with righteousness and uprightness.
