Passing Judgement

The following 2 short videos cover the topic.

Judge Not

Judge Not?

Please watch both videos before commenting.

I’ll add, that saints are to especially judge those we fellowship with, that claim the Lord’s name, but act in an unrighteous manner, 1 Corinthians 5.

    I think it is funny when sinners say “Only God can judge me” when they are living in direct opposition to God’s way. Do they somehow think that they are okay? My goodness. They don’t realize that to be judged here could save them from the wrath of God’s judgment if they took heed. And why are we (Christians) trying to explain scripture to them that do not have understanding anyway? Those who claim to be Christians that say “don’t judge” are listening to the same spirit that the unsaved are. “My people know My voice, and a stranger they will not follow.” Anyone who has this “don’t judge” response to the pointing out of sin isn’t interested in the truth and is probably engaged in some form of ungodliness or approves of those who are. For example, most people who have loved ones who are gay will be soft on homosexuality, not realizing that they are simply loving their loved ones more than God; and according to Scripture, are not worthy of Him. The bottom line is that those who take the “don’t judge” stand have not truly made Him Lord; whether intentionally or unintentionally. I’d rather have man call out my sin that I would repent than to have to stand before the Most High and have Him call them out. Repentance brings about forgiveness and the casting of my sin as far as the East is from the West. Denial brings the wrath of God’s judgment to my doorstep.

    It used to be the only bible verse sinners knew was “Jesus wept”. Now, brazen in their sin, they have co-opted “Judge not…”

    The two videos are right on in their explanation of how sinners take this out of context. But should we expect sinners to take any of the Bible in context. They even take the “golden rule” out of context.

    What they dont realize is what they are saying when out of their own mouths THEY JUDGE THEMSELVES.
    Judgment by God himself of sinner or saint is a far worse thing to happen than to submit to the righteous judgment of man (guided by the Word).

    IC, as you said, the video may have been better served to expose the false church leaders who are teaching this same postmodern ideology. I expect sinners to go left. But when the church is teaching the convoluted doctrine of the world. Serious issue.

    Consider Hebrews 10:26-31:

    26If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[d] and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”[e] 31It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

    I will have to grab this one for my site.

    Matt. 7:1 has a context which Jesus gives immediately following that verse. His command not to judge is only to those who are guilty of the same thing at the same time. He then says that if you remove the beam in your own eye (repent), then you will be properly equipped to help your brother remove his sin.

    Two other Biblical witnesses can be found to agree with this: David said in Psalm 51 that after being restored from his guilt; he will then teach transgressors God’s ways and sinners will be restored unto Him.

    Also, Paul condemned men who judged when they were guilty of (currently) doing the same things (Ro. 2:1) they were condemning others for.

    Judging others when we are still practicing the things we condemn in them makes us hypocrites. That is why Jesus says we will have that same condemnation brought upon ourselves when our own sin is finally found out.

    Aman Stan, I was JUST reading this scripture in the bible when the Holy Ghost brought about that same revelation…I had read that scripture many times before without that “understanding” of it. I love when God confirms His word! One cannot stand in the pulpit or try to witness to others and preach against homosexuality, adultery, fornication, lying etc, when they are “practicing” it themselves! Don’t be deceived, God is not mocked…I believe we will continue to see the Light “exposing” what’s being done in the dark for this same reason.

  5. stan Says:

    Cool, godlysoldier! Freedom comes by continuing in the word until “the daystar arises in our hearts.” Matt. 7:1 used to bother me too whenever I was forced to evaluate someone’s fruit. I felt like I was guilty of offense, but it was really by not understanding what Jesus meant by that verse.

    Ignorance is a lack of armor that allows Satan to deceive you through wicked men who bully you not to “touch God’s anointed.” Meaning them, of course.

    It is somewhat amusing (or sad) to publicly prove some famous teacher’s aberrant doctrine is unbiblical; and have their supporters tell you “not to judge.” They then accuse you of hating; which is ironic to the extreme because they took your criticism of the doctrine as hatred, meaning they just judged you for having murder in your heart against the false teacher. I think the irony of their accusation is always lost on them.

  6. IndependentConservative Says:

    Yes, I’ve always felt those who cry “judge not” as some sort of blanket rule were big time hypocrites. For them to even say it to someone who is exposing a false teacher means they had to “judge” that someone was judging the false teacher 😆 . And yea it’s really sadder than it is funny.

  7. daughter Says:

    These videos were spot on (yep I JUDGED that, lol) I’ve heard so many people wrest the “Judge not” Scripture in order to justify their sin.
