Who or what gives you the right to Judge others?


Playing the judge and jury game goes on in this life, and in our reality no matter whom we may assume we are, who we think we may be, or whatever we become. Judging others isn't an advisable thing to do, but some folks never learn. (What's your thoughts on the matter, feel free to answer this question in the format of a hub, but please do use the answer section here to do so.)

    You misread my explanation of the question, you might wanna read it again Theophanes. I never said that judging people is good, actually I stated quite the opposite up above. It's OK though, while reading stuff many of us make such errors.

    I'm not sure if that can be considered a good example of placing judgement on others WalterPoon. We do have the right to decide who we should vote for I agree, but is that placing judgement? I do understand though what you mean with your answer.

    I beg to disagree with your last 2 sentences. I think other people also judge you for the same reasons that you judge others. Nevertheless, to the extent that you are referring to gossipers who judge you for no reason, I agree totally with you.

    Are you sure that "an opinion is not a judgement because it is based on someone's personal feelings about something"? The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines "opinion" as "a view, JUDGMENT, or APPRAISAL formed in the mind about a particular matter".

    I don't think it is an outdated instinct. Without the ability to judge others, we may take a thief for a friend or regret confiding with the wrong people. I don't see why there is so much hangups about being judgemental, as long as we are fair.

    You come out of a bank with $10,000 in cash.... someone is tailing you. Don't judge him, right? Because profiling is wrong. Just believe that he may be better off than you, right? How about AFTER he robs you? Are you allowed to judge now?

    Not sure if an opinion is a judgement Dashingscorpio, but I get what your getting at though. We make up our own mind on things. Your right about that, but placing judgement can and has produced some excruciatingly harsh results when directed by some.

    I can't get your point... you mean murder, corruption, and robbery is neither right nor wrong? I agree that some cases are borderline and it's hard to judge, but there are obvious cases of black and white.

    Yep, sure does, as does - judge not, lest you be judged also, and found wanting, or words to that effect. Matthew, I think?

    many people dont understand that disagreeing with them or pointing out error in what they say or do is not judging them, only their actions, but to those people everthing negative is taken as a personal attack.
