Morally, we understand that judging others is a sin, but is it still a sin when we judge silently?


We have been taught that when we let judgment of others roll off our tongue, we have committed a great sin. However, we all have opinions! Some, we keep in our heads and to ourselves. When we remain silent with those judgments, are we still sinning with just the mere thought?

    "Tolerance" is the battle cry of the morally bankrupt. You know damn well you don't respect the opinions of those who differ from yours. You know damn well you hate those who will not endorse your homosexual agenda. You just aren't honest about it.

    Corinthians 6:2-3 "Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And, if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest cases? Do you not know that we will judge angels - not to speak of things pertaining to this life?"

    Matthew 7:1: Judge not, that you be not judged. ; Right here, we are directed not to judge. In all of Matthew 5, we are directed to live in ways that exclude what I call judgment, esp. 5:21 & 5:43. Judgment is angry, assessment & forgiveness,
