Judge not...

I shared this on Facebook this evening and wanted to share with those of you who don't know me personally or who aren't my Facebook friends.

The more I read, learn and experience, the more I realize Christians really are a judgemental group. Not righteous judgement and I feel they judge other Christians much more than the lost. The biggest problem lies in that fact that Christians judge not sin, but what I deem doctrinal differences. As if you aren't Christian enough because you don't do it like them. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a "have an open mind," "accept all things," "truth is relative" secular point of view I'm trying to show. I believe there are some fundamental truths to Christianity that cannot be ignored and are essential to salvation. We Christians are doing a lot that tears down Christ's body. Sad.
Have you experience said judgement or been on the judging end? I know I've judged others from time to time but I feel like I am growing in Christ and learning the difference between righteous judgement and ridiculous judgements based on personal preference.

Until next time, may Christ's love and blessings be upon you and yours.

  1. Jenni-I'd say I've been on both ends for sure. I would be extremely judgmental if I hadn't fallen on my face a few times (or a few hundred maybe, but thankfully the true "wipe-out" falls were pretty much just a few)...I think God knew that He had to let me fall like that to make me more humble and to know not to say "I would never...." because we are all one step (and some huge grace) away from falling on our sinful, earthly faces. So, after typing all of this I really think maybe the judging others touches me more!? I think that I don't worry too much about what others think maybe!? In that way anyways...... ;)
