Why You Should Not Pay Attention To The People That Say "Do Not Judge". by Tallesty1(m): 10:31am On Dec 29, 2015
If the Bible is clear about anything, it is about the importance of judging on a regular basis in order to properly serve and honor God.

Every living person is called to judge so I wonder why some people say "do not judge".

They will quickly quote a verse from Matthew 7 which to me is always quoted out of context by people who are terrified at the idea of someone preaching against sin or pointing out any form of error(s) them.

It is not surprising though cause our generation is trying so hard to fulfil the prophecy in Isaiah 59:8 which says that
"The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth there in shall not know peace."
People have refused to judge, so there is no peace.

Why I am writing this post is to inform people, especially Christians who say "do not judge" that they are sinning against God who called us to
"preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. 2 Timothy 4:2"

"Rebuke" here means "to criticize sharply, admonish, or reprimand." When people do not recognize the error of false doctrine, we charged to call it out and we cannot do that without judging their actions.

"The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment." (Psa. 37:30)

A righteous person will talk of judgment. He will not REFUSE to judge. He will talk judgment.

We are charged in I Corinthians 1:10 to
". . . be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.


Read what Paul says here:
"Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?" (I Cor. 6:1-5)

Every Christian is called to do what Jesus describes In John 7:24 as RIGHTEOUS judgment.

So any Christian that tell you to not judge is either a hypocrite or a sinner.

Stay away from such person.

Now here's how to judge.


Matthew 7: 1-5 allows judging after you have first judged YOURSELF. Jesus did not make a blanket statement against judgment. He simply pointed out a RULE for judging.

Don't rush to judgment and do not make more of a matter than God makes of it.

When Solomon received his kingdom he asked God to
"Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?" (I Kings 3:9)

Ask God to give you the grace and wisdom to judge and then judge yourself first because God hates Hypocritical Judgements.


What happens when we stop judging

I Corinthians 2:15 also says, "But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man." 11:30-31: says "For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged."

If you are a true Christian, then you belong to God. You are God's child. If you refuse to judge and improve yourself as a child of God, then God will take it upon Himself to judge you.

Judge Righteously but do not condem.

Y'know, I saw a thread on here yesterday bout a lady that had 4some and was celebrating on it and someone people condemned her actions but some said it is wrong to judge her cause it is her life.

Ok, Let's agree it is her life but what the effect that her life is having on others?

BTW, when I opened another thread and saw the same person calling for the immediate prosecution of Dasuki, I wept.

Of course!


By their fruits we shall know them

It is one's behaviour that tells where he belongs, what he is capable of and what you should/shouldn't do with him.....

It is all same ten and ten pence in my opinion.

A person's behaviour does not really define who they are at the core.

If only we judged people not for what they are but for what they can be...

We know that God created everyone in his image and likeness.

Every created being is God-Like.
For the bible makes us understand that Christ fills ALL things with HIMSELF; ALL IN ALL.

If I were to judge a friend who prostitutes for a living based on the eternal truth that they are ever accepted, loved and unjudged before their creator...

I would be more loving and correct them from a place of wholeness and acceptance. I would be more gentle. Most times, because of our human nature and how we've taken the words of men written in the bible as THE word of God, we tend to become destructive, brash and ungentle in our criticism...thereby alienating the more, those we need to bring closer to their maker.

Judge a behaviour(s), not a person.
That in itself lies an unfathomable power to transform.

This is just like saying, because my wife is beautiful and I am handsome, our kids must look good too.

Listen Nnem, there are things we don't choose, how to be born, by whom, whether to be created or not are among them. But we chose who to serve once we are born.

Honestly, I am beginning to think that satan can create too, or he has away of adopting God's children.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.

Nah John John 8:44 talk am no be me.

I think he adopts them, maybe he got the permissions on the seventh day while God was resting.

The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies

He adopts while they're still in the wombcrycrycrycrycrycrycrycry

MizMyColi:

[If I were to judge a friend who prostitutes for a living based on the eternal truth that they are ever accepted, loved and unjudged before their creator...
How you can say she's a prostitute without judging her confuses the hell outta me 2 be honest.

Actually, their conscience judges them, their creator judges them too, he knew their way is wicked but he hasn't condemned them, he still wants us to repent.

MizMyColi:

[I would be more loving and correct them from a place of wholeness and acceptance. I would be more gentle.

Where and how does the the scripture teach these things you mentioned up there?

MizMyColi:

[Judge a behaviour(s), not a person.

Judge a person righteously, tell them their sin in boldness but be gentle with them and correct, don't condemn them yet cause their maker hasn't.

@Op. First define what it means to judge, den define what it means to rebuke or criticize then u will see that when Christ said judge not, he meant judge not. Judges at the law courts have measurements, they judge you by it, ever seen a law court rebuking a criminal? They judge.
Christians need to no d difference between dealing with issues and dealing with people. Judgement have to do with condemnation, but rebuke is not focused on the person but on what a person has done.
A girl had a foursome, I will be right to tell her those who do that will go to hell cause it is against God's laws, but I will be wrong to look her in the face and say "hey sis, ur going to hell", that means I have condemned her, wat if she repents tomorrow?
