Judge Not

Nowhere in the Bible does it tell us to judge one another. There are, quite oppositely, many commands not to judge and several references that call Jesus Christ the only Judge. Also, there are numerous commands to love each other. In fact, the Bible makes us very responsible for our own behavior and makes us completely unresponsible for other people’s behavior. However, it should be mentioned that those in a church in authority are doubly responsible for their own behavior and additionally we are all cautioned to not be a cause for anyone else sinning. But we lay people are charged with the job of being loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self controlled. That is our calling in life, our priority after salvation. In doing these things, we will never offend and will naturally draw people to Christ. All this judging nonsense needs to stop. I always tell my son, “You do you and let them do them”. Our attributes and purity will do great good and if enough of us focus on that, we can change the world for Christ!
