More importantly, the idea conveyed by the expression "general judgment" is not found anywhere in the Scriptures. The Scriptures do speak of several judgments. These will be found to differ in four general respects: those who are the subjects of judgment, the time of judgment, the place of judgment, and the result of the judgment.
