Jesus Christ gave us information regarding the earthly resurrections there will be two kinds:
A resurrection of life for the righteous, and a resurrection of judgment for the unrighteous: “I have hope toward God, which hope
these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous” (Acts 24:15).
Nevertheless, the logical question is this: if the dead would not be judged on their
past actions, but on those, of obedience or not, to the new divine instructions (new scrolls), in the earthly paradise, consequently,
this interpretation seems to contradict the statements of Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul, regarding the resurrection of Righteous and Unrighteous, because they will be selected in two categories, Righteous and Unrighteous, according their conduct of their
Concerning the mercy of God, the Bible makes the difference between, on the one hand, the fact that God forgives
definitively the sins of a guilty person, thus allowing to live, or to be resurrected in the future, without removing
the consequences of his actions (right or wrong), on the other hand. Let us take a concrete biblical example: the serious sins of King David, especially with Bath Sheba (2 Samuel 12:1-14).
His serious sins have been fully
forgiven, which enabled King David and Bath Sheba to be kept alive. Nevertheless, Jehovah God has made David and Bath Sheba assume the consequences of these serious sins: The death of the little child, result of their adulterous conduct, and terrible events
that would seriously affect King David and his family (2 Samuel 12:10-12). In addition to these consequences, the fact that Jehovah God has made these shameful acts of King David written in his Word, the Bible. So, when David will rise again, in the earthly
paradise, he will also have to explain himself with the former deceived and murdered husband, Uriah resurrected (As Example for Us (Romans 15:4) (The Biblical
It will be applied the same process of Divine Mercy to the resurrected dead:
The complete forgiveness of the sins of the past life in connection with the atonement law, the death erases their former sinful condition
inherited from Adam (Romans 5:12; 6:23). The Mercy of God will allow applying the blessings of the Ransom (from Christ's Sacrifice),
the resurrection of the dead, righteous and unrighteous (Acts 24:15).
Nevertheless, the expressions Righteous and Unrighteous clearly indicate that the reputation, good or bad, of their actions of the former life of the
resurrected dead will follow them. Let us take positive examples of future faithful biblical characters who will be resurrected on Earth, in Hebrews 11: Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Jacob, Joseph, Moses… It is obvious that these Risen Ones will
have the resurrection of Life and their good reputation inherited from their past good deeds will follow them for the eternity into the Earthly Paradise.
As for the unrighteous, the reputation of their past actions will
follow them in the time of their judgment. If their judgment will bring them, at end, to everlasting life, this former reputation will disappear with the eternity by the effects of their good deeds done in the Earthly Paradise. For example, returning to Hebrews
11 and 12, regarding Jacob's twin brother, Esau is described as a man without spirituality (Hebrews 12:16). It is obvious that at the resurrection of the unrighteous, Esau will have to prove himself in order to make forget his former reputation.
