As a Christian community, we are here to support each other, and to learn from each other by asking questions and exchanging views and opinions. However, at this point, I must stress that I am not a priest, vicar, minister or whatever else. Just an ordinary person with personal opinion.
Recently, SANDI asked me about 1 Corinthians 6:3 where Paul writes:
6:1 If any of you has a grievance against another, how dare he go to law before the unrighteous instead of before the saints! 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? 3Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!
On the face of it, Paul is saying why go in front of a judge when you can go before the saints. In the Bible, "saints" means God's Holy people. Christian people to use the modern equivalent. People who believe, love and obey God. Like you and me ...
So we, at the end of the world, will be judges on those who do not believe, love and obey God.
And if we are worthy of such an honour by God, then we are surely competent to judge trivial worldly cases instead of going to the Courts and judges.
Then he adds, that we will also judge angels.
In here, I believe Paul means we will also judge the fallen angels. Those who rebelled against God and left paradise. Satan and his devils, the evil spirits who roam the world trying to take us away from God.
