Judging Other People

keep_calm

It is simple human nature to judge people.  We as true Christians need to stop doing this.  We aren’t superior, as the gift of salvation is given freely to all.  I surely am not superior in any way.  Some take this kind of information to the extreme, because of some guilt or unresolved sin.  Take it to the Lord in prayer.  I can testify that I was saved back in the early 1980’s, but chose to run away from the Lord until earlier this year (2015).  Some can view my past and now call me a hypocrite.  That’s ok with me, as the Lord has forgiven all my sins and I don’t have to justify anything to other people.  I am not concerned with how past friends or my biological United States brothers and sisters view me, as it’s not important.  What is more important is that they receive salvation before it’s too late.

Matthew 7 Amplified Bible (AMP)
7 “Do not judge and criticize and condemn [others unfairly with an attitude of self-righteous superiority as though assuming the office of a judge], so that you will not be judged [unfairly].
2 For just as you [hypocritically] judge others [when you are sinful and unrepentant], so will you be judged; and in accordance with your standard of measure [used to pass out judgment], judgment will be measured to you.
3 Why do you look at the [insignificant] speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice and acknowledge the [egregious] log that is in your own eye?
4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me get the speck out of your eye,’ when there is a log in your own eye?
5 You hypocrite (play-actor, pretender), first get the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give that which is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, for they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
