Question:

This means that both saint and sinner will get the same reward!

Answer:

First of all, salvation is a gift, not an achievement we accomplish and are "rewarded" for (Eph. 2:1-10). However, all of God's judgments are rooted in His love (Ps. 62:12). So-for their own good-all people will be called into account for their deeds (ourselves included) and rewarded accordingly! Even so, it will not be a happy experience for any who have lived in calculated rebellion against the Lord (Romans 2:6-11, 1 Cor. 3:13-15).

However . . . you haven't always been a saint, have you? Did you volunteer to live for Christ, or did God's Spirit lead you to repentance? Do you actually want other people to suffer endless torment because the Holy Spirit overcame your stubbornness and led you to Christ before He did the same thing for them? Perhaps you need to read about the "elder brother" in the story of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). Also review the story of the hired workers in the vineyard (Matt. 20:1-16). Remember, if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us (1 John 1:8).
