Passing judgment on someone 


based solely on appearances is sinful.

Let us make sure we know 


every situation fully 


before making a judgment.

Pride and arrogance zealously brings attention


to another person’s shortcomings, 


while remaining forgetful to its own.



Easily seen are the faults of others, 


but in far too many instances 


it is difficult to see our own.



Scripture cautions us not to be harsh and judgmental


of the faults of others,


even where they are evident,


because neither are we perfect and free from error.


Jesus is calling us to not condemn people, 


to not pass final judgment and declare one 


unredeemable and guilty.


 

It is incredibly important that we


 understand the context in which Jesus was speaking.

The Bible’s command that we not judge others 


does not mean we cannot show discernment.


Jesus is giving us permission to tell right from wrong.



When Jesus said not to judge others, 


He did not mean that no one can identify sin 


for what it is, based on God’s definition of sin.



The Bible’s command that we not judge others 


does not mean Jesus was saying, 


“Anything goes.”



Jesus gives a direct command to 


“Stop judging by mere appearances, 


but instead judge correctly.”

Superficial, unrighteous judgment 


is wrong!

Men may escape human justice, 


but they will never escape God's divine justice. 



We cannot flee from God's 


all seeing eye


nor experience anything...



 that God is not aware of.



There is nothing outside the realm of God's knowledge.


God is everywhere, and God is all-knowing.


The most minutest details 


about each of us


are known completely...



and are on full display 


before God.


All of our thoughts, words, 


secret sins, and deeds


are an open book before God.


There is nothing about us 


that God does not know.



God's knowledge of us is so vast 


that there is nothing we can do 


or imagine that God does not already know about.



God knows all and sees all of our past, present, and future.


There is no place within the entire universe 


we could find ourselves where God's presence 


could not be.



God is Our Just and Righteous Judge.


 God does not have favorites. 


It makes no difference who we are 


or where we came  from... 


 God looks deeper than the surface,


 and God's Judgment is always perfectly righteous!

Every case is laid naked and open before God. God needs no witnesses and no jury because God has personally witnessed every crime and secret sin that has ever been committed. 

God knows all the facts.

God never misrepresents a person's case! 

We can be sure that God's judgment 

is always according to the absolute truth.

 

At the foot of the cross... the ground is level.

God will impartially judge everyone for sinning against 

the light that they were given.

God's judgment applies to each of us, 

regardless of our age, circumstances, or station in life. 

There are no exceptions to the rule.
