Is there a general judgement where God weighs my good work versus my bad?
There are 3 judgments in the Bible. #1: The judgment for our sin on the cross. God nailed your sin to the cross and paid for it in your place. You must trust Him alone, not your works, to be saved.
#2: The judgment of the works of those who believed in Jesus while on earth. After you believe, do good works. Reward and joy versus zero reward and sadness await you in Heaven.
#3: The judgement for those not going to Heaven because they sought to get there by works, not by faith alone. They plead their works to enter Heaven. God will judge them accordingly but they will fall short no matter how good. You must trust Jesus, not your works, for salvation.
Colossians 2:13-14, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Revelations 20:11-15
