How many times have you heard someone say, “Judge not, least ye be judged?” This verse of Scripture from Matthew 7:1 is often quoted out of context by those terrified at the idea of someone preaching against sin or pointing out any form of error in anyone, especially in themselves. However, it does not mean to not judge others.
There is a righteous judgment. Christians cannot remain silent on moral issues simply because others take Matthew 7:1 in isolation (ignore the rest of it) and expect you to keep quiet. Christians should always operate from a place of forgiveness, both in our hearts and in our message.
So yes, we are to judge but to first judge ourselves and to do it with love and forgiveness and we are not to enter into arguments with fools or unbelievers because God’s precious words are wasted on them. We are also called to pray for those that are lost, this is so much more powerful than a heated argument. We should not be afraid to make our opinions and “evaluations” known, just do so with love and Grace.
