Title: Quick to judge
Post by: Richard OFfill on March 08, 2019, 06:11:33 PM
These days they are telling us that we shouldn't judge each other. Though we are not called to judge each other's motives, we are called to discern between right and wrong, truth and error. This generation refuses to discern, rather chooses to judge. This can be seen when someone commits a crime. Society is quick to judge - that is, to explain what motivated the person to commit the crime.

If I see a man running out of a bank with a gun in one hand and a bag of money in the other and I say "Catch the thief!" it seems to me that I am not being judgmental but discerning. The modern mindset is likely to say he robbed the bank because his mother wouldn't give him a weekly allowance. Now, that is judging!

It's a tough call.... bible says we are not to judge and yet the bible also says that we are to correct a brother that is in sin.

The key I think is that they are to be a trusted friend before we attempt to correct.  Otherwise it just starts an argument and a wall is built up and things are probably worse than before....

Matthew 7:2  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Luke 12:57  Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

Acts 4:19  But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.

1 Corinthians 10:15  I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.

2 Chronicles 19:6  And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.

Isaiah 1:23  Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

Jeremiah 5:28  They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.

those are all true Ed
but so are these

Rom_15:14  And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.

1Th_5:12  And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

2Th_3:15  Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

Pro_13:8  The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.

Pro_24:25  But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.

Pro_27:5  Open rebuke is better than secret love.

Ecc_7:5  It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.

Luk_17:3  Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

1Ti_5:20  Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

2Ti_4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Tit_1:13  This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

Tit_2:15  These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

They "key" I believe is 'brethren' and 'love'.  We must have the love and respect of those that we rebuke and admonish.
