What DOES The Bible Say About Judging?

Affordable Webhosting!

I will be adding to this and editing it; but just quickly, the Bible does NOT teach that we are not to judge anything. That is one of the best lies ever told to weaken Christians. You can’t stand up against ANYTHING because then you are judging! First a couple pieces of Scripture…

Matthew 7
1Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Romans 2
1Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

2But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.

3And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

With just a little bit of effort one can clearly see that we all make judgments EVERY day. The Bibles command and God’s expectation of us is that we “Judge Rightly” and that we be not hypocrites guilty of the same or worse sins. When a person “judges” a man who cheats on his spouse, or a homosexual who is active, they are not actually judging….GOD has already pronounced the judgment. The effort to silence Christians is actually an effort to silence GOD in the area of public opinion.

The Bible says OVER and over again that we ARE to judge!

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

1 Corinthians 6
1Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

2Do 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?

3Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

4If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

5I 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?

6But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

It is really sad and a testament to the ignorance of people today to the Bible that so many people fall for this. Let me give you an example…

Did you know that the Bible says “There is no God”? YES, it does…Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Do you see what I did there? ANY scripture taken out of context is merely a pretext. Usually to perversions of sound Biblical doctrine. This is EXACTLY what the “Do Not Judge” people have done. The verses that say not to judge don’t exist all alone. You will never hear that from them though!

A discussion on homosexual “marriage” raised a point that I need to touch on. While we absolutely DO have a responsibility and authority to judge and condemn a persons SIN, we have no authority to wish ourselves the arbiter of their faith or act as a judge or executioner. We need to understand that we are ALL of us sinners and that our prayers, hope and work should be towards seeing lost people repent, accept Jesus and try to live lives that serve and please him!

    Political correctness is a tool of satan’s utilized by his minions who believe the lie.

    • Can you expand on this? I agree with you but am trying to see how your post relates to this topic… I am also not known for ever supporting PC speech or being PC.

      Free speech, by necessity precludes the possibility that no one will ever be offended.

        We never have to judge because the Lord gave us his Word which is the judge Itself. We warn others out of love for them when they act or behave contrary to the Word of God. We are required to do that as Christians or we have that person’s blood on our hands. Those who want to live contrary to the Word of God use political correctness as a weapon to thwart our warnings. I’ve been on the receiving end of that argument before. I don’t let that stop me though as I wear the whole armor of God.

        I was not insinuating anything about your behavior. We have a war on our hands that the luciferians have been preparing for years while the Christians have become tepid or shall I say “lukewarm” and the Lord is going to vomit them out of his mouth.

        Our warning based on God’s Word does not make us executioner or arbiter. As far as salvation is concerned, there is only one faith. All faiths don’t lead to God. There is only one Gospel and one Jesus Christ.

        • Absolutely! Thanks for taking the time to read and respond! I believe we find ourselves in complete agreement… As I wrote above “With just a little bit of effort one can clearly see that we all make judgments EVERY day. The Bibles command and God’s expectation of us is that we “Judge Rightly” and that we be not hypocrites guilty of the same or worse sins. When a person “judges” a man who cheats on his spouse, or a homosexual who is active, they are not actually judging….GOD has already pronounced the judgment. The effort to silence Christians is actually an effort to silence GOD in the area of public opinion.”

          The exclusivity of the Gospel is an affront to the lost world.

            You are spot on, Preacher Cruz, but I think the “effort” to silence Christians is more of a global mandate hiding behind the activism of such groups as the rainbow crowd and the social gospel of the Jesuit activism. You and I both know, these hidden powers use compassion in its unintended sense to achieve removing God out of the public arena. Frankly, these hidden powers care nothing about all these “protected groups” only that they are fulfilling an agenda for them. Further, I see God’s truths and the Gospel as more than the arena of public opinion. It is law that is being violated to achieve the luciferian end. The Gospel and God’s law forces accountability that many don’t want, especially the shadow ruling elite. No God, no absolutes. We have our work cut out for us but if we are at the times that I think we may be, Satan will have his way with us but we know how it ends. We must pray to be found worthy to escape what is coming. God bless, my friend in Christ Jesus.

          • Indeed…

            I live in Indianapolis and just LOOK at the ruckus over a law that is essentially the same as in 20 other major cities…

            People act like it is completely reasonable for a person to lose their rights to freedom of association, religion & conscience just because they operate a business!

            I keep trying to get people to see this is just forced viewpoint modification. Place the shoe on the other foot and the idea seems ridiculous! NO one would support making a gay baker prepare cakes for that Westboro group!

            The next logical step is to force churches and ministers to perform ceremonies and host wedding parties at their facilities… All in the name of non discrimination the tolerance brigade will bully the religious and any others opposing them and FORCE them to do what THEY want via threat of government.

            Frankly, I can’t add much to what you stated above as I agree completely. However, what we are seeing today smacks of Nazi Germany. Aside from reading the Bible and other’s eschatological works and exegesis, I read a lot of history and political science. Off the cuff I cannot remember the specific work but I have read that WWII was in many ways a practice or trial run for what we see today.

            Are you familiar with Albert Pike and Manly P. Hall? Freemasonry, the Scottish Rite? I think it was Pike that outlined the need and the scope of 3 coming world wars in a letter to Giuseppe Mazzini in Italy, another freemason. I do believe that this included collaboration by the Jesuits who are actually the ones responsible for the development of communism. Jesuits coined the term “social gospel” at some time in the mid 1800s.

            The illuminati guidelines established by Weishaupt (a Jesuit himself) in 1776 were nearly identical to what Marx published. In some of my reading, I learned that the illuminati had actually solicited Marx to write the communist manifesto because his “mad rantings” would fit the bill and shelter the Jesuits. Also, in case you haven’t come across this in your reading, Hitler’s Mein Kempf was written by a Jesuit named Fr. Staempfle.

            I wish there was something I could do to help Indiana. They will make an example out of your state. The Homo elite will make spectacles of themselves, as if they are not already spectacles. Forgive my cynicism, please. My humanity is showing! God bless. . .

          • Frankly, the evil of the RCC is amazingly clear to anyone who can look with an unbiased eye.

            I often pray for those lost to false religion…

            As I do too, Preacher Cruz. I have a brother who is so hopelessly deluded by them I can’t hardly believe it. I pray for him every day as I believe the RCC is leading its followers to perdition. My brother is so bright in so many ways and has a superior intellect but is brainwashed by this “mystery religion.” Thanks for sharing and you’re right. The evil is beyond most people’s ability to believe it as it plays havoc with their normalcy bias but the documentation is available everywhere. They hide in plain sight. God gave me eyes to see and ears to hear and for that I am eternally grateful but it also comes with the pain of watching those that are lost, who won’t listen to what you have to say. Happy Resurrection Day and Feast of First Fruits. God bless, Preacher.

        Your article made me think about Romans 1. About believing the lie. Free speech assures that someone will be offended but wisely administered, it is a blessing. What we need to keep in mind is that Jesus is not coming back as a Lamb but as the Lion of Judah. God bless.
