Episode 76 | The “Judgy” Episode – Part 2
This week is part 2 of the our deep dive on judging. Everyone quotes Matthew 7:1 which directs us that we should not judge, but there are soooo many other scriptures that can build upon that and give us a deeper understanding of this oft-thrown-around word. We don’t render verdicts, that’s reserved for the ultimate judge…but we are judges of another kind… #realchurchmatters #obedienceoveraudience

John 12:46-48 New Living Translation (NLT)
46 I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark. 47 I will not judge those who hear me but don’t obey me, for I have come to save the world and not to judge it. 48 But all who reject me and my message will be judged on the day of judgment by the truth I have spoken.
Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Romans 14:12-13 King James Version (KJV)
12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.
1 Corinthians 2:14-15 King James Version (KJV)
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
Proverbs 28:5 New Living Translation (NLT)
5 Evil people don’t understand justice, but those who follow the Lord understand completely.

1 Corinthians 10:14-15
14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.
James 2:3-4 New Living Translation (NLT)
3 If you give special attention and a good seat to the rich person, but you say to the poor one, “You can stand over there, or else sit on the floor”—well, 4 doesn’t this discrimination show that your judgments are guided by evil motives?
Acts 16:14-15 English Standard Version (ESV)
14 One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple goods, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul. 15 And after she was baptized, and her household as well, she urged us, saying, “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.” And she prevailed upon us.
Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
