Matt. 7:1-5

Even though we are not supposed to judge others we are supposed judge in some situations in order to help our Christian brothers and sisters.  

  • Discerning Between Good and Evil

John 7:23-24– Don’t judge by appearance.  Judge with the righteous judgment using the truth of God.

John 8:15-16 – Base your judgments on God’s word.  Learn the truth of God.  We are judging behaviors, actions, and words not people’s hearts or standing with God.

Rom. 16:19 -We must be experts in what is good.  We need to recognize evil and stay away from that.

Heb. 5:14- We need to be constantly learning the difference between good and evil.
