- God’s people are to point out sin and call people to repentance (Amos 5:14-15; Ps. 37:30;1 Cor. 2:15).
- Judging is necessary or we could not obey (Romans 16:17-18; 2 Cor. 6:17; 2 Tim. 3:5-6 and 1 Jn. 4:1).
- Believers must make judgment calls because when we don’t there is no peace (Is. 59:8).
According to Jesus, we must not judge someone by a different standard than which we would want to be judged. Therefore, we must first judge ourselves. One cannot judge himself/herself without humility. Our judgment of others should never be from a heart of superiority, but rather a heart of humility with the goal of seeing the individual restored.
