Judge Not: But Judge Righteously by davidinchrist(m): 9:32pm On Apr 04, 2020
As much as we are commanded Not to judge others, it is commanded to Judge righteous judgement as well. However, it's important to get the right balancing act here through God's wisdom: to Judge Not and then Judge Righteously. There are some self-proclaimed talkers, preachers making the rounds on the Internet these days, mouthing off about exposing fake pastors, prophets, churches, but unfortunately, they themselves seem to be in much greater deception and worse spiritual conditions. One cannot just get up someday and just take on the ministry of exposing others in order to impress people or try to get attention: that will lead to a more serious judgement to anyone who does that.

1 “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.
Matthew 7:1

John 7:24 KJV
Judge not according to the appearance, BUT judge righteous judgment.

4 How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?
Matthew 7:4

5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.
Matthew 7:5

May Jesus Bless You.

Jesus' statement found @ Matthew 7:1 simply means
"don't join in sentencing any human to his early grave, because all humans are supposed to be condemned criminals"

So servants of God don't hesitate to speak whenever God's holy spirit reveals to them a wrongdoing {Galatians 2:11} they make sure such wrongdoing is spelt out and resolved {Matthew 18:15-17} If the wrongdoer realize his blunders and makes a u~turn, the congregation of God keeps him/her in our midst but if he/she feels no need of correction, we will remove him/her from our midst {1Corinthians 5:13} in this case NO member of God's people should say a greeting to such a person again! 2John 10-11

Thank you! smiley
