What are we sowing?
Jesus teaches us not to judge one another. "Judge not lest ye be judge" When the people took the woman caught in adultry to Jesus and asked about casting stones, Jesus said "He that is with out sin among you,let him first cast a stone at her." James chapter 2 verse 10 says "Whosoever keepeth the whole law, yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. He also teaches us that we reep what we sow.
Are we sowing forgiveness and love? We can't help what other people do. We can only control what we do. If some one is judging us, they will be judged. Lets pray for them.
There is however difference between judgement and criticism.
Judgement is the pronouncement of a sentence as a result of a sinful act, but criticism is an brotherly admonition born out of love given to a fellow so as not to fall.
Do you see that? Problem is some people are not tactful enough to admonish friends and take them out of wrong ways, they pronounce judgement instead of adminition.
Regardless of the circumstance, be it us going to some one or some one coming to us, or what ever it may be, there has to be forgiveness. Hanging on to ill feelings is wrong in itself. We will all be judged one day and we don't want any ill feelings in our hearts when we do. Matthew 5 verse 24 teaches us that if we have a problem with a brother to settle it before we come to the alter.
Forgive and you shall be forgiven.
There is one thing I can say about what I am sowing. My vortex of creation has everytging amassing of everything I have placed there. Everything I request is there.
My time, my money, my gifts, my friendship, my love, my advice, my knowledge, my experiences...virtually every aspect of who I am.
Christians are sowing division when they judge others who do not follow their way. They are getting back what they give out. It is not only in the words but in the emotions that they put behind those words that also come back. They choose only parts of sentences that are in the Bible and not the whole of the paragraph and use those as swords to try and get another to see it their way. They assume that when they do this they will have a better position in heaven. That is not true. Jesus said to only spread his word and if those who they were spreading it didn't like it they were to move on. Most Christians today think the more the denegrate others they would be doing a good thing. Not so.!

Do you believe Pastors hold the God given authority or carry the ordained right to Judge..I have seen many church leaders cast judgment upon members of there congregation for backsliding and/or sinning, do these religious leaders hold a higher authority the individual who was judged?

If God is the only one who is supposed to judge, why are there so many judgmental Christians/Catholics/Etc around here?

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. ...
