I’m really confused about Judgement Day. When we read about it in Scripture, it seems that we will be judged by our works - which makes sense cause we don’t believe in salvation by faith alone anyway… but what happens if we did a lot of sin in our life, but repented and went to Confession? will that sin not be counted? I feel like no matter how much I try, my sins would always be greater than any good works I know we need God’s mercy… but I’ve read that Jesus is merciful now, and will come as the Just Judge on the last day, - so what will happen to the sins we’ve confessed? if we’ve repented and try to live a good life, but still fail a lot, despite our good intentions, - will God send us to hell?
I’m SO confused about this and I don’t know what to think… what is the Church teaching?
