Why do people feel that they have a God given right to judge others?


In my experience reading alot of the answers around christianity, I have found that the very people who profess to be christians are casting the first stone. Not everyone. But I have to honestly say the majority from what I've read. Why? and how are they able to do this if they are christians, It is not a natural trait. I really struggle with this and cannot get my head around it. Please tell me where the christian part of relaying damming judgements on people lies? Its incredible that some feel that they do have this right!

    I just think that it is so sad that we feel a need to judge others. There is no need and I feel if the same energy was put into positive words and building people up, then we may be greeted with more positvity from others we thought unable to reach

    Thankyou for commenting Mr Maranatha. May I firstly ask what the 'condition' is that you refer to in need of a cure? apart from the obvious evil in the world and not respecting or alowing others dignity, which hopefully by most christian standards is

    content4life I think most people do acknowledge that they have faults, however unfortunately they still appear to have deluded views of their rights when considering others.Thankyou for your comment.

    don't understand the question. Christians have an objective moral truth they live by, which is found in the Bible. that objective moral truth is not dependent upon feelings, and is not up for debate.

    Yes. It is so easy to use this 'truth' as a shield from an individuals personal opinion.Thankyou.

    I think we can all be guilty of judging to some degree because we're human.Blimmey I'm no saint! but I am aware of others and I believe in treating people with the respect they deserve as human beings and just accepting that we are all unique.
