And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: BEHOLD, I HAVE GAINED beside them five talents more.  His lord said unto him, WELL DONE, THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: ENTER THOU INTO THE JOY OF THY LORD. Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: AND I WAS AFRAID, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, THERE thou hast that IS THINE. His lord answered and said unto him, THOU WICKED AND SLOTHFUL SERVANT, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. And CAST YE THE UNPROFITABLE SERVANT INTO OUTER DARKNESS: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 25:20-21, 24-28,30. (Read all of Matthew 25 to get the full context). Whether you are from the Inside Church, or the outside church, a Christian or an atheist, ALL will be Judged by the same Standard. Every single man, woman, and child on planet Earth has Life to deal with. The final Question is, did you include Christ in your Life, or not? You say you know him, but does He Know You? It's not about the numbers of "How many people did you save"? It is all about, were you willing to Learn Obedience and Follow Christ as the Holy Spirit directed you? In prison, or out of prison, neither has "a leg up" on the other. IT'S ALL ABOUT CHRIST. He will Justly and in Holiness, Judge you, and me, in Righteousness. Do you Need Christ? Do you need More of Christ? Seek Him while you can and get ALL of Him that you can, and, Be Blessed.
