I know it's just fiction but....(Judgment Day)

I'm curious abouth the Christian Judgment Day/Armageddon. It is my understanding that Christians (in general) believe that when you die you either go to heaven or hell. Simple Enough.

So what's happening to you on Judgment Day? If your eternal fate was chosen for you at the time of death....then what is there to judge on the "Last Day"? You've already been judged at the time of death. So whats the point of Judgment day? Why all the hype?

You want a general answer to specific questions. Good luck. Christians, in general, believe you go to heaven or hell after death. Anything further than that will yield you a variety of answers that will probably transcend and/or defy denominational beliefs.

This is what happens when two fiction writers try to write the same story when they are ignorant of each other's versions. No big.

"...whats the point of Judgment day?"

God is a just god. He wants to give you a fair trial before he throws you in hell.

The modern Christian belief that people go straight to Heaven or Hell upon death is mistaken. Biblical scholars will point out that the Bible paints of picture of everyone being "asleep" until the day of Judgement, at which time everyone who has ever lived will be judged.

Although I would surmise that Lili Morgan's answer is the simpler and most accurate one :)
