Judge Righteously

Scriptures show clearly that God expects his people to make judgments. Those who would teach the heresy that God does not want us to judge need only read their Bibles.

Those who say we should be more like Jesus, and not judge at all, have overlooked some important passages of Scripture. If we meditate on these verses we will discard the notion that we should not judge.

1 Peter 1:15-16, 1 John 4:1, 1 John 4:5-6, 1 Thessalonians 5:21, Philippians 1:9-10, Matthew 23:23, 1 Corinthians 6:2, 1 Corinthians 6:4, Matthew 19:28, Luke 7:43, Luke 12:57, 1 Corinthians 10:15, Acts 17:11, 1 Corinthians 11:13, James 2:1-5, James 2:12-13, Philippians 4:8-9, Ephesians 4:13, Philippians 1:9-10, John 7:24, Hebrews 4:12, 1 Corinthians 14:24-25, Proverbs 12:23, Proverbs 6:14, Mark 7:21-23, 1 Corinthians 2:14-15, Psalm 119:69-70, Matthew 15:18, Acts 8:20-23, Acts 5:4, 1 Corinthians 1:10, 1 Corinthians 6:1-5, Romans 16:17-18, 2 Corinthians 6:17, 2 Timothy 3:5-6, 1 John 4:1, Heb. 5:12-14, Psalm 37:30, Amos 5:14-15, Isaiah 8:20

The sobering fact is, God, EXPECTS His people to judge. In fact, you are sinning against God if you refuse to judge! (Read that again, please)

“The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.” (Psa. 37:30) A righteous person will talk of judgment. He will not REFUSE to judge. He will talk judgment.

“Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.” (Amos 5:14-15) How can you hate the evil and love the good if you refuse to judge? You can’t. You are SINNING when you refuse to judge.

  1. Greetings in the name of our Redeemer and King!
    I like your article on judging; I think it is a much needed topic that needs to be taught on more. Would you be interested in doing a radio program on this subject on our first of the month live Kingdom Concepts broadcast? Please contact me and let me know. If you give me a phone number and good time to call, I will call you and discuss the details.

    • Not at this time Mike. I don’t know if Steph told you or not but my health is not good at this time. I would appreciate your prayers though.
