Accountable: God will hold us to account for all of our actions.

For God, will hold us to account for all of our actions; so we need to be prepared to give account for our actions before God: Woe betide him from whose hands
floweth evil and blessed the man from whose hands floweth good. Unto no one do I take My plaint save to God; for He is the Best of Judges. Every state of adversity, or bliss is from Him alone, and He is the All-Powerful, the Almighty. By God! If ye do well, to your own behoof, will ye do well; and if ye deny God, and His signs, We, in very truth, having God, can well dispense with all creatures and all earthly dominion. Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning; for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds. (Bah Faith, The Bab, Selections from the Writings of the Bab, pp. 15 and 39 and Baha'u'llah, The Arabic Hidden Words) God is the ultimate judge, He watches over everything, and is well aware of all, everything in existence, and is ready to judge our actions at a moments notice; for, as Bahullh tells us, death unheralded shall come and take us, at any moment, at any time, and there we will be, giving account for our actions, before those who are going to hold us accountable for all of our, own actions, in this life of ours. JUDAISM: Ecclesiastes 11:9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. 2 Chronicles 6:30 Then hear Thou from heaven Thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart Thou knowest; for Thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men: 2 Samuel 3:39 The LORD shall reward the doer of evil according to his wickedness.

Proverbs 24:12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it? and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it? and shall not He render to every man according to his works? CHRISTIANITY: Romans 14:12 So then, every one of us, (everybody) shall give account of himself to God. We will be asked of our doings in this life, when we pass out of this mortal life, into the hands of God: Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Once we pass beyond this mortal world we are judged according to our actions in this life, which only makes sense. Matthew 7: 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Revelations 2:23 I will give unto every one of you, according to your works. Revelations 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 20:13 And they were judged every man according to their works. Letter 27. O (ye) creature of Allah! Remember that the Almighty Lord is going to take an account of every one of your sins, major or minor, and whether committed openly or secretly. If He punishes you for your sins, it will not be an act of tyranny and if He forgives you, it will be because of His Great Mercy and Forgiveness. (Islam, Ali b. Abi Taalib, Letters from Nahjul Balaagh)

139. Say: Will ye dispute with us about Allah (God), seeing that He is our Lord and your Lord; that we are responsible for our doings and ye for yours; and He is The Judge of both of us, and that we are sincere (in our faith) in Him? (The Qur'an (Yusuf Ali tr), Surah 2) 30. On the day when every soul will be confronted with all the good it has done, and all the evil it has done, it will wish there were a great distance between it and its evil. But Allah cautions you (to remember) Himself. And Allah is full of kindness to those that serve Him. (The Qur'an (Yusuf Ali tr), Surah 3) 11. But to no soul will Allah grant respite when the time appointed (for it) has come: and Allah is well-acquainted with (all) that ye do. (The Qur'an (Yusuf Ali tr), Surah 63) 59. With Him, (Allah) are the keys of the Unseen, the treasures that none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear (to those who can read). 60. It is He Who doth take your souls by night, and hath knowledge of all that ye have done by day. By day doth He raise you up again; that a term appointed be fulfilled; in the end unto Him will be your return, then will He show you the truth of all that ye did. 61. He is the Irresistible (watching) from above over His worshippers and He sets guardians over you. At length, when death approaches one of you, Our angels take his soul, and they never fail in their duty. 62. Then are men returned unto Allah, (God), their Protector, The (Only) Reality: is not His the Command? And He is the swiftest in taking account.

(The Qur'an (Yusuf Ali tr), Surah 6) It cannot be that the consequences of a good deed and those of a bad deed would be the same. They are sure to yield different results. The underlying principle of (divine reckoning, reward and punishment) is laid down here. 14. Fulfill (then) upon them through their actions and judgments that judgment, which at the last shall bring them to the House of the Lie. (ZOROASTER, Hymns of Atharvan p. 160 and The Zend-Avesta, Avesta Yasna 51) Denkard: Zarathustra (Zoroaster), Be it known that a man must do himself personally good deeds for his soul's benefit. If a man does not do a deed required for his spiritual welfare, no other man can do that for him. (Every) man makes (his) account-book himself. The fruit of every goodness is delight; the fruit of every harmful action is distress. Be it known that the final judgment of the soul bears a relation to its desires and capacities. 232. Having thus considered in his mind what results will arise from his deeds after death; let him always be good in thoughts, speech, and actions. For, 81. With whatever disposition of mind (a man) forms any act, he reaps its results. (Hindu, Laws of Manu chapters 11 and 12) And here they say that a person consists of desires. And as is his desire, so is his will; and as is his will, so is his deed; and whatever deed he does, that he will reap (the result of his actions). (Hindu, Upanishads vol. 2, Brihadaranyaka-Upanishad Part 3) Not in the air, nor ocean-midst, nor hidden in the mountain clefts, nowhere is found a place on this earth, Where man is freed from evil deeds; INHERITANCE OF DEEDS (KARMA). For, owners of their deeds (karma) are the beings, heirs of their

deeds; their deeds are the womb from which they sprang; and with their deeds they are bound up; their deeds are their refuge. Whatever deeds they do, good or evil, of such they will be the heirs. ((The Eightfold Path), Buddha, the Word (The Eightfold Path)) 1. Here and beyond he suffers. The wrong-doer suffers both ways. He suffers and is tormented to see his own depraved behaviour. 1. Here and beyond he is glad. The doer of good is glad both ways. He is glad and rejoices to see his own good deeds. 1. Here and beyond he is punished. The wrong-doer is punished both ways. He is punished by the thought, I have done Evil, and is even more punished when he comes to a bad state. 1. Here and beyond he rejoices. The doer of good rejoices both ways. He rejoices at the thought, I have done good, and rejoices even more when he comes to a happy state. (Buddhist, Dhammapada - Sayings of the Buddha 1 (tr. J. Richards)) Exert yourself in order to come face to face with MindEssence and relax not; For death may come suddenly and put an end to your earthly existence. (Buddha, Sixth Patriarch) Allah (Al-iah, God) created the universe from nothing, that every human being is responsible to our Lord and will have to account to Him in the Hereafter, and that they will be rewarded in the Hereafter for what they did in this world. Therefore each (man or woman) must properly evaluate their actions in this life. O Messenger! Transmit what has been sent down to you from your Lord. (Hanif, from the writings of Abraham, al-Ma'ida: 67) The good will see and will be found ready, (But) The wicked will be discomfited (and held accountable). (Sabeanism, Ginza Rba- chapter 35 and 76)

Who will guide me past the watch-house of Sms? Your reward, your works, your alms, and your goodness will guide you. (Sabeanism, The Song) The good behold and are refreshed: The good will see and will be found ready, (But) The wicked will be discomfited, chastised by Manda-d-Hiia (Savior God). (Sabeanism, Seth son of Adam and Sabeanism, Ginza Rba- chapters 35 and 171) The names of righteous and believing people Will be established in the Place of Light. Thy name giveth out light. To each according to the works of his hands It is awarded. Every man who toiled And was long-suffering shall come and take with both hands, (Sabeanism, Ginza Rba- chapters 77 and 123) The worlds assembled for judgement, For judgement the worlds are assembled, And judgement was pronounced on them, On them was judgement pronounced, On those who did not perform the works Of right-dealing Man. But thou alone, Chosen and Pure One, Fair Mana, that art burnished bright, Thou goest not to the judgement hall and Judgement will not be pronounced over thee, Over thee judgement will not be pronounced; Because thou didst perform the works Of rightdealing mankind. (Sabeanism, Ginza Rba- chapter 92) Persevere steadfastly as Thou art bidden and let not the faithless amongst men nor their utterances grieve Thee, since Thy Lord shall, by the righteousness of God, the Most Great, pass judgement upon them (men) on the Day of Resurrection, and surely God witnesseth all things. This is the Day of Resurrection (of judgment) the day when all secrets shall be searched out. Not by their outward appearance, but by the character of their beliefs and the manner of their lives, does God judge His creatures, be they men or women. The Bab: (Shoghi Effendi, The Dawn-Breakers, pp. 70 and 551) On the Day of Judgment, when men stand before their Lord, they will not be questioned as to their education and the

degree of their culture -- rather will they be examined as to their good deeds. (Bah Faith, Abdu'l-Baha, The Secret of Divine Civilization, p. 101) Set before thine eyes God's unerring Balance and, as one standing in His Presence, weigh in that Balance thine actions every day, every moment of thy life. Bring thyself to account ere thou art summoned to a reckoning, on the Day when no man shall have strength to stand for fear of God, the Day when the hearts of the heedless ones shall be made to tremble. (Bah Faith, Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 236) This period of time is the Promised Age; the assembling of the human race to the Resurrection Day (when all shall be judged) and now is the great Day of Judgment. (Bah Faith, Abdu'l-Baha, Baha'i World Faith - Abdu'lBaha Section, p. 351)
