Judge right – John 7:24

My Pondering

He is a fool who thinks he doesn’t judge (ie make choices, decide, discern, etc}. The word ‘judge’ is such a taboo, PC word these days mostly by people practicing situational ethics.

Is not the point rather to judge comprehensively and correctly, not harshly and showing grace as you can because that is what you will receive back by God?

And we certainly shouldn’t judge a person’s motivations without ample information or stuff beyond our pay grade, like salvation.

Here is a solid article on why Christians of course should judge and when we should not.

Judging Article

The word and act of ‘judgement’ is a lot like ‘fear’. Many say, ‘it’s taboo’. In all actuality, it’s the proper (or improper) use of it that matters.

Like ‘fire’ and ‘explosion’ in the wrong spot at the wrong time is reckless and and extremely dangerous but in the right place, it can heat your home in the dead of winter or power you gas combustion automobile engine.

There is a good healthy form of fear and the false inhibitor type, just like judgement, ‘She exercised sound judgement in the purchase of that house’ or ‘He judged his brother harshly and they haven’t spoken in over twenty years’.

What is ‘judging’?

This is what it is NOT


And since we are talking cars.

Just because a person goes to church doesn’t make him a christian.

But like a car, you are likely to find them in garages and christians in church praising and learning about God on Sunday mornings.

All lives matter

It getting starting to go off the deep end.

Revisionist censorship…what happened to ‘if you don’t like, dont watch or buy it’…like they (the extreme left) want to ram all their agenda down out throats.

Enough already. It is what it was in regard to history. If we don’t learn from it, what?

Yeah, we are bound to repeat it.

I am disappointed about a lot of things our society / country has done but I am convinced this is still the greatest country in the world and worth support her principles and understanding her history, warts and all.

We are at war, a cultural one for sure.

Snowflakes go melt.

BLM. ALL lives matter. And since YOUR life matters, make something of it, lead positive changes starting with YOURSELF and STOP shaming, bullying, and creating havoc. What many are doing is NOT peacefully protesting.

Indeed your life matters and were created for a fine purpose. We all were. That being the case, something about it that’s positive. There are plenty fine examples.

Stupid people get stupid prizes whether they be hate filled cops or drug filled thieves.

It really is not a black vs white thing, its a right vs wrong.

BLM does matter. #1 on that list are not hate filled white cops but abortion and planned parenthood. So let’s stop both.
Abortion kills tons more blacks each and every day than all the bad cops in a year combined. Think about that.

Since black lives matter so much then stop committing so much crime, particularly black on black.
Do you know the 2018 stats from the FBI/Justice department shows the male black population commits 44% of ALL the violent crime in America but makes up only 14% of the population. That isnt due to bad cops but bad ‘stinken thinken’.

Hate, stealing and rioting are all wrong. Can we agree on that?

Do the crime, do the time. What goes around, comes around.

I am NOT for white privilege but American privilege. Our diversity is our strength. Let’s not the polar extremist tear us up.
Its wasn’t fair African-Americans where brought to this country as slaves. Lot’s of others things are fair either. But each person should make the best of his or her life. If Africa is a better place, go there. If you like America better, then its fine peacefully work to reform and improve her but don’t destroy her.

The good book says, the top two commands are about love. Love God (that encompasses a lot) and love others the best we can. We don’t have to like everyone but rather love everyone for we all bleed red and all need help and hope.

Love God, Love others.
