I would think that should it come to that it would be about both how we deal with things determines what we do, so the two are interwoven. Example, two people, in similiar situation. One is in car accident, one reacts in anger, when in emotionally stressful situations they get angry and start to yell at those around them, they don't listen and tend to just be like a small child with a temper tantrum. The second person in similiar situation, might be angry over the stress from the accident, but instead of letting the anger to run away and go into a tantrum etc, they use the anger as an adrenial rush to help them find the strength to face the issues that are going on during the acciedent but doing so with control over themselves, and by remaining more controlled and calm they can resolve issues needed for the accident. How they deal with stress is with anger, how they use the anger either to let it run away with them and behave badly, or to control it and use the energy from the emotion in a way that they can gget things done. So what we do is it seems to be determined by how we deal with things. So it is not two issues to be judged on but rather one.

According to the Scriptures, I would say that we are only going to be judged for the ways we have used the gifts, talents, opportunities that God has given us during our lives. We will never face judgment after this life is over for the sins in our lives because they have already been forgiven through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross and his resurrection. As one verse in Psalms describes our sins being removed as far as the east is from the west, and cast to the bottom of the sea never to be brought up again. How can we be judged after this life is over for things that were forgiven and forgotten before the foundation of the world was even created? I have heard many people talk about the shame that we will face at the judgment when all of our sins are brought up against us for all to see. This just isn't biblical. Those sins have been forgiven. We will be judged according to how we used the things God gave us in this life, as described in one of the parables of Jesus in the Gospels.

If you are a Christian, you need to know that God's attributes are love, light, holiness and righteousness. Our God is a righteous One. He is not only our God but also our heavenly Father because we have receive His eternal, divine life when we got saved. He is our righteous Father and He wants HIs children to be righteous also so that they may express the righteous heavenly Father. Yes, He has His final judgement at HIs judgement seat at the end of time, but today we have a foretaste of HIs judgment. As the heavenly Father, He will first just those who are in HIs household. He judge us through dealing with through usually thru trials, sickness, lost of love ones,or situations arises which are not favorable, etc. so that we may be dealt with.

I feel that we are being judged by what we do, and do not do in this life. If we live a Good Clean Moral life and treat others with kindness obeying the laws of the land, and the 10 commandments, straying away from the bad things of life then we will be judged good. From what I have always read and understood we are judged by our works and actions, so how we portray ourselves is how God will usually see us and we will be looked upon later as well.

I agree with everyone who says we are judged by both things. Philippians 4:8 says, 'whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.' And if we deal with things with those attributes then what we do will be good. and God will be pleased with us!
