Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men.  2 Corinthians 5:11
"He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."    John 3:36
"He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained." Acts 17:31

As Judge of the Universe, God will judge lawbreakers and sinners.
Lets see what happens in God's courtroom. 

You are called into God's holy courtroom after you die and are asked some of the questions from the good test using the Ten Commandments as the standard.  (See God's standard > take the test)
Jesus is God
the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John 1:14)  go >>

God is Love
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.  (Romans 5:8,9)   go >>
God is Savior
"Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners..."
(1 Timothy 1:15)   go >>
"We are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags."  Isaiah 64:6
When God judges us, you and I are on track to be consumed by God's wrath and anger because of our sin and unholiness.  
The penalty for sin must be paid.
The LORD knows the thoughts of man, that they are futile.  Psalm 94:11

The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  Genesis 6:5

So the question is, what is going to happen if you are found guilty? 
What should the punishment be for a lawbreaker against God?

Just as in an earthly courtroom, unless the judge is corrupt, the judge won't be bribed.  Similarly, because God is Judge of the universe and the standard for justice, He cannot be bribed either. 
The Judge of the universe goes down the list and right off the top, the question of whether or not you've lied comes up.  God sees our thoughts and knows everything about us, so He knows our guilt whether we admit it publicly or not.
