If I say to someone that what they are doing is sin, isn’t that a judgment on my part?
If I tell someone they need Jesus as Savior then I have judged them.
However, the more I judge myself, the less judgment I pass on others but rather more encouragement. Continue reading
Where does judgment begin?
The word of God tells us; for the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17 Continue reading
Judge not… Matt 7:1
How many times has that verse been quoted to you, even by non-Christians.

I like quotes!
I like to read what others have said that’s of significance; it doesn’t matter if it’s Christian or of a secular nature.
Some of my favorites include Will Rogers.
He was a political satirist in the 1920’s.
Some of his best remarks are: A fool and his money are soon elected. Continue reading
Okay, I just have to make a comment about it!
When I was growing up I could easily get in trouble with mom by sticking out my tongue.
I was told it was nasty, it was ugly, and it was rude.

For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:16

When tempted with that which was forbidden, Continue reading
Beware of saying, “I haven’t time to read the Bible, or to pray”; say rather, “I haven’t disciplined myself to do these things.” ~OSWALD CHAMBERS
I had a Christian tell me one time that they had never read the Bible.
