When God shall judge the secrets of men - On secret circumstances depends the real quality of actions, frequently unknown to the actors themselves, Rom 2:29.

Of course not! If God were not entirely fair, how would he be qualified to judge the world?
So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.
