Is God gonna reward these two people equally?

Kelly: She is a young wealthy woman who came from a rich family and she is a wealthy businesswoman working for a public relations company and she gets well rewarded for her hard work, she owns an Infiniti FX (car based SUV), lives in a condo overlooking a huge lake, owns lots of nice clothes, owns alot of nice stereo equipment, owns alot of nice furniture, gets to go on alot of nice vacations, gets to go on alot of rock concerts, back when Kelly was younger she always had a great life cause she had hundreds of friends and they all wanted to be like her, her teachers thought very highly of her and they favored her over most of the students, her parents helped pay part of her college along with her college scholarships and when she turned 16 her parents bought her a brand new Mustang GT convertible.

Charlie: He is a poor young man w/a learning disability who working in retail and he is from a poor family and he still lives at home with his parents, his only means of transportation is taking the city bus or sometimes bicycle, when he was younger alot of people who he thought were his friends snubbed him off and made him feel inferior to them, his teachers treated him like a worthless piece of garbage and while at a parent/teachers conference they told him that he is uncapable of having a paying job and that he is gonna be living in a group home when he gets older, alot of his fellow classmates had picked on him and there was alot of drama going on with his classmates in school, while he has felt hurt, upset and angered over the situations he was going through fortunately the drama, getting teased, picked on, snubbed off and him getting treated like garbage didn't take the good out of him and that he still remained nice, kind and respectful towards the others and he was able to be strong enough to steer clear of drugs, alcohol and suicide and he now takes the bad situations he's gone through as a learning experience and he is proud of himself for the things he has accomplished out of life, he has been working at his job for a very long time.

Both Kelly and Charlie are Christians and they have accepted Christ as their saviour.

What your reward is that He would give to each according to the testing of the work of God in the life of each person with what was done by grace. If what was done remains, great reward in eternity.

If what was done was nothing but wordly concerns of money and other things; The Word may bear no fruit and be choked out as written.

Dedicated to one, and hate the other is written. No kingdom dedicated to such and such a purposes as monetary gain and sex could stand as not divided upon by God. For was not it at your so and sos disposal to accomplish what God put in to that person, and yet what reward was found to be in that person afterward when it was fulfilled what had been truly hoped for in this failing and dying world; instead?

You have received your reward in complete is written admonishment. Some come to me saying Lord, Lord but do not enter The Kingdom of God; these are of those who draw near with mouth only not with intent to become founded in the foundry found remaining everlasting for a show. For Jesus needs not anyones testimony about what He had place in any person; for He knows The Truth regarding the motives of peoples and what they really have dedicated themselves to in this 'life', and what potential was there.

Soddom and Gamorah would have repented if the signs were performed and remained as a city is written, but only Lot and most of his family escaped what was coming. Abraham the Prophet of God pleaded for the city regarding The Faith accounting at Righteousness crediting. What he had asked was not found in that city. Thus, the decision was placed.

There are actually many other factors to consider. Did they serve Christ while on Earth? Did they Win souls to Christ? Did they look for His return? Where the faithful in Giving of their talents?

As far as salvation is concerned they are both equal. But as far as crowns and other rewards, that is individual.

maybe not in this life, but eternal life in paradise is the reward for anyone who believes in Jesus Christ, and it's far better than anything we could hope for on this earth.

Absolutely both will be written into the Book of Life. Just because we are Christians does not mean life is going to be just peachy. Trials and Tribulations are part of being a Christian. After all God had to beat Moses out of Moses for 40 years!

Why are so many people so selfish and always thinking of what they can "GET" out of God, like rewards and so on. This is not God consciousness. True lovers of Christ think of how they can serve God, not what they can get out of Him.

Well, it matters on how much good each has done. God will decide. If you are a real Christian, devoted, then God will judge you by your life alone, not comparing you with anyone else.

They will both go to heaven and be with Jesus. What rewards they get when they get there will depend on what each did with the talents and opportunities God gave them, if they followed His will in them. So, yes. And, guess what! They will be friends!

I think they'll enjoy the same amount of infinite happiness o_o, if they'be both accepted Him and worship God and Jesus 100%. ...But remember, you can only have one master (kelly and her money).

the flaw in the reward system is you will never know what you get until you are dead and then maybe later than that. charlie may have needed some life experiences to get his soul on the right track while kelly is bound for hell and worships satan . just because a person has a lot of material possessions, it doesn't make us happy. the one thing most people seek is security. while the system of religion teaches insecurity. it' teaches that struggles in life are to prove your faith in god. and the more struggles you have and cling to your faith, the more god likes you. so in your story, charlie has been a kind person but god doesn't reward kindness, god rewards faith. so which one will get to heaven, who knows how faithful they are in their heart of hearts. they are both hell bound without repenting and accepting jesus as their savior.

Umm i personally did not read all of the description because it was long, but the thing that triggered my curiosity is the last thing you said,
which was

"Both Kelly and Charlie are Christians and they have accepted Christ as their saviour."

Our saviour is not christ, our saviour, and the only person who can save us from anything, the only one who can save christ from anything is G-d... don't you agree?

Think about this logically .... don't bring the bible into this !

yes and no

yes they get everything exactly the same, but it will seem like a whole lot more to Charlie.

Think of it this way. If God gave both a blind man and a person who can see 20/20 vision it wouldn't do much for the person who could see, but it would do the World of good to the blind man.

From: milon

Subject: Urgent Life Safety Alert!

Message: REPENT SINNER!

You still have a chance to be saved from Hell while you are on earth. Do not wait until it is too late!
(To be saved speak in your head, or out loud where you are):
Admit to Jesus that you have done wrong and that you want to change and do right.
Believe Jesus is Lord and receive Jesus as your savior.
Commit to and follow Jesus.

God is not a respector of persons. It is not about your social stature but your work after salvation that determines your reward. God looks at the heart not the outside.

by the way: you dont get rewarded for being saved!!!! That is a gift! (Rom 6:23)

You get rewarded from what you do for God AFTER salvation! Not to determine Heaven or Hell but to determine you degree of reward.

So if they both got saved and did nothing after that for God, than they both receive little or no reward in Heaven because they were an unprofitable servant.
