No Sugar Coating Here!

David Norris of Spiritual Pathways Ministries
discusses Biblical discernment & judging...

If I had a dollar for every time I heard, "Judge not, lest you be judged", I'd be thousands of dollars richer. Let's break down these verses in question shall we to get at the truth. Matthew 7:1-5 will be my focus but as usual I will be cross referencing these texts as well.

“Judge not, lest you be judged”- Matthew 7:1. Guess what people? Everyone will be judged according to what they have done in their body. “We must ALL appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, ACCCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS DONE, whether good or bad”- 2 Corinthians 5:10. I don’t know about you but I choose to practice discernment in this body and to help others see error in doctrine whenever possible. “Some save with fear, pulling them out of the fire”- Jude 23.

What have you done for the body of Christ? Have you ignored errors of doctrine? Have you watched potential brothers and sisters go down the spiritual drain without even lifting as much as a finger to help pull them out of whatever mire has them bound? Matthew 7:1 is as far as “Judge Not’ers” seem to go. “For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; And with the same measure you use, it will be measured back to you”- Matthew 7:2.
