Judge me not?
Some excellent scriptures for those who love to twist Matthew 7:1 and who wrongly claim that Christians are never to judge…
Matthew 7: 1 (NKJV)
Judge not, that you be not judged.
We are required to:
~ Judge with a righteous judgement: John 7: 24
~ Judge all things: John 7: 24
~ Judge sin within the church: 1 Corinthians 2: 15-16
~ Judge matters between brethren: 1 Corinthians 6: 5
~ Judge preaching: 1 Corinthians 14: 29
~ Judge false prophets and those who preach and teach counterfeit gospels: 2 Corinthians 11: 1-4
~ Judge the works and workers of darkness: Ephesians 5: 11
~ Judge false prophets and false apostles: 2 Peter 2 – 1 John 4:1 – Revelation 2: 2
~ Judge false Christians among us: 1 John 2: 18-20
According to the Bible we should judge, but it has to be a righteous judgement – not based on social, racial, educational, or any other status, and should be done prayerfully.
We shouldn’t let people, no matter who they are, walk all over us – because we are believers. “Judge not”, people say, turn the other cheek… this is exactly why we’re in the position we’re in. Yes, we should be loving and accepting, but only to a point.
hope you have a great day!
