    In the end, we will be judged for who we are. We will not be able to bring anything with us, and when we meet God, he will look at our entire being. However, can we really separate our actions from who we are? That is the question that comes to mind. When God judges our sins and our good deeds, must he look at what we have done? And, at the same time, the video suggested that actions are linked to our virtues and vices, so in a way, we can never separate our actions from who we are. What we do, just as much as what we think, define ourselves.
