2 Timothy 4:1-2
"I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching."

Just wondering something sort of obvious....but when Paul says that Christ is the judge of the living and the dead, would he be classifying believers as being the living, and the unregenerate as the dead?

I don't think so. I think he is saying that Christ Jesus is the judge of all. Some people think that He is only the judge after you die. Others think that He is the judge only while you are alive. Paul is saying that while we are living in this world, He stands as the righteous and continuous judge (something we need to be aware of and something about which you posted and then deleted). Paul is saying that after we die, we still face the judgment of Christ. So live it.

That's how I read it.
