Judgment Or The Truth?

Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment. John 7:24
Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Luke 6:37
Judge among yourselves. 1 Cor 11:13
Who are you to judge another’s servant? Rom 14:4
Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. 1 Cor 14:29
Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, Rom 14:13
Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 1 Cor 6:2
This is too salty.
That was a terrible movie.
I’m voting for her on American Idol.
He’s not a good president.
He is a great president.
The leader of Libya needs to be removed.
She’s pretty.
He’s handsome.
She’s too skinny.
He’s very fat.
He committed adultery.
She lied.
You don’t know what you’re talking about.
The milk is safe to drink.
This is delicious.
That’s a dirty word; we don’t say things like that.
You shouldn’t go out wearing that.

I can go on and on. These are phrases of judgment; some of which you may have uttered yourself.
We have to use judgment to get through each day; what to wear, where to eat, what to watch, or stop by the store after work or wait until tomorrow.
Some totally freak on the judgment matter.
When a certain celebrity was all over the news for multiple adulterous affairs, I actually called him an adulterer.
I was then accused of judging him and I thought that I was just stating the obvious.
If I say I’m disappointed in something President Obama says in a speech, then I’m accused of racial bigotry.
What was the accusation when I was disappointed in something President Bush said?
Let me ask this; when is a judgment a judgment and when is it stating the truth?

One thought on “Judgment Or The Truth?

  1. We can be made to feel guilty when speaking the obvious. It is our Creater who tells us what sin is! If we who know the truth don’t speak out then how will the ignorant come into knowledge? We are also told through the scriptures that when we see a brother in sin we must talk to him. Do it according as it is laid out in the Bible. Or his blood will be on our hands. It is the emeny of God that uses the Word of God aganinst the child of God. Saints are not flawless. We know where to go for forgiveness & cleansing and power. DON’T follow the man/woman, follow Christ!
