Who will judge the world?

Who will judge the world?

There are many passages in scripture about God's judgement of the world on the last day, so what do we make of 1 Corinthians 6:2?

Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts?

Will God judge the world through his saints? How does the above verse square with this one from the previous chapter?

For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?

Verse 5 says Paul doesn't judge those outside the church, but inside. In verse 6 he says (as a rebuke) that the church will judge the world. What theology can we glean from these passages?
