If the bible says do not judge does...
What does that mean. Do not judge fellow Christians or do not judge full stop?
Penny the point requires clarification. DO not judge or you will be judged is basically judging everyone. You can apply wisdom without judging. CHRISTIANS can be very judging, but when you truly walk in AGAPE the judging slows down and eventually stops altogether. I never judge someone's actions or lack of them, but I will judge their motive most of the time. IN doing that I invite others to judge my motives also. IS that a bit clearer now?
it means do not judge by your own intelligence what to do or what not to do. just follow jesus instruction.
ex. jesus says thou shell not kill in his ten commandments. but people all over the world killing animals and men both so where is their judgement. they can not judge because they don't have mind to judge. so just follow what jesus said. don't take your own judgement in between otherwise every thing will go wrong.
Not to judge them by what you see but look at them through the eyes and wisdom of Jesus. Treat them like Jesus did- Love them.
Even though we don't agree with the sin in there life- love comes first.
We come to Jesus because of His love. Jesus love doesn't condemn but corrects in love and by example.
So if we pray for the people in our lives and love them it will open there heart. Love covers a multitude of sins- that's what Jesus died for so we wouldn't have to be judged by sins because we accepted His free gift of salvation and forgiveness.
Jesus love is what causes us to become more free of bondages to sin over time. So we can't expect people to change just because we judge and criticize them- Love makes people want to change because they know they are valued and important enough for you to love them 1st.
Just like Jesus love them without judging even if there unloving.
In the bible " do not judge" means just that, toward anyone or anything for what ever reason. To be judged, is really only GOD'S job.
Judgment is an ambiguous word, in Greek as in English - the Greek word for judge is “krino” or “krima” - the Greek word (diakrisis) actually means discernment: enlightened. - In his Spirit of Truth, we are called to judge with diakrisis,
Plenty other translastions from Greek to Latin to English are mangled in the KJB , I.E. Four Greek Words for 'love' - Agape, Phileo, Storge, Eros ... The Greek word eros does not appear in the biblical text.
Do not judge .....
Once your judgement is not Truth then you make yourself false.
and even when you do know Truth, you will also understand all things and need not judge anyone at all anyway.
Christians are usually accused of "judging" people whenever they speak out against sinful activity. This is not what Matthew 7:1 is really talking about. When it states in Matthew 7:1 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged." it is talking about judging hypocritically. A lot of people will speak out against someone sining yet, are doing the same thing they are doing or even worse! This is what Jesus does NOT want us to do.
However, He DOES want us to lovingly correct wrongdoing or sinful behavior. In Matthew 18:15-17 it states, "“If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses". This is speaking the truth in love (Ephesians 4:5) and in doing so is helping the person out and spreading the Gospel.
James 5:20 "remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins."
2 Timothy 4:2 "Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction."
