“God belongs to all free beings. He is the life of all, the salvation of all —faithful and unfaithful, just and unjust, pious and impious, passionate and dispassionate, monks and laymen, wise and simple, healthy and sick, young and old —just as the effusion of light, the sight of the sun, and the changes of the seasons are for all alike; “for there is no respect of persons with God.” – St. John Climacus (The Ladder of Divine Ascent)
A Verse in Support of this:
“The LORD is GOOD to ALL, And His MERCIES are over ALL His WORKS.” (Psalm 145:9, NASB)
Judgment is there but it is in the Purpose of ‘making things GOOD again’ as St. Irenaeous pointed out, to quote from Page 8 from the Book ‘Lost Orthodoxy’ (link below):
“… therefore has the Lord said: “Judge not, that ye be not judged: for with what judgment ye shall judge, ye shall be judged.” [The meaning is] not certainly that we should not find fault with sinners, nor that we should consent to those who act wickedly; but that we should not pronounce an unfair judgment on the dispensations of God, inasmuch as He has Himself made provision that all things shall turn out for good, in a way consistent with justice…” (Irenaeous of Lyons, ‘Against Heresies’, Book 4, Chapter XXX, Point 3).
(iv) Irenaeous (having been pass down the ancient apostolic authority) defines the “judge not – in the above to refer to two things” ——> namely that, ‘Just Judgment must be Spoken in a Context of TURNING ALL THINGS to GOOD eventually’ —–> and also that ‘We must Judge the Dispensations of God’ rightly, i. e. with ‘no errors in Doctrine – if possible’ (e. g. Regarding Time & Judgment correctly – Ecclesiastes 8:5).
God doesn’t Change.
“This is the MESSAGE we have heard from Him and announce to you, that GOD is LIGHT, and in Him there is NO DARKNESS AT ALL.” – apostle John (1 John 1:5, NASB)
