      you may know something is wrong, but if you start telling about how it is wrong, then you are Judging.

        so if you tell a person not to jump off a house, that's judging?

      well unfortunately most religious person who believe judging is god's right turn themselves into god and judge who would go to heaven or hell...atheist dont believe in god so they can pass judgment but religious person dont have right to judge since that right is on god they believe in ...

      by offering the information as you say, you are in fact telling them what they do, that you personally do not like......

      they can also do the same to you and thus neither of you get anywhere. Would not understanding be better?  Just an idea maybe.

    Judgment based on opinion is still an opinion.  Judgment based on fact is a conclusion from which one can make a decision.  To be in relationship with or not be in relationship with, to do business with or not do business with, to be close to or be apart from.  Opinion is not fact and therefore is not a sound basis for judgment.

    I would say that judging is making an assessment on the available facts. It might be right, it might not ..but is a decision made with the best evidence available at that time and in the opinion of the one judging.

    I understand scripture to say that we should seek and practice good judgement... but we ought not try to judge others... meaning, that it is impossible for us to properly decide the righteousness of another person's heart... only they know why they do the things they do... a person could have a decent heart, but their circumstances or (lack of) knowledge can lead them to do stupid things... or at least what we personally perceive to be stupid according to our own circumstances, knowledge, or personal precepts.
