“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.” Matthew 7:1-2
We are all humans. We all sin and fall short of God’s glory. There are those who sin unwillingly and those who sin by intention. Both have sinned.
But, there is one sin in Christian churches that the not even the people of the world commit such sin. That sin is so common in Christian churches and is hard to be found among people who are of the world. And that sin, is the sin of judging, the sin of judging.
This is the sin Jesus Christ Himself taught the multitudes not to be victims of and it is now the most common sin in Christian churches.
Maybe you don’t understand the judgement Christ was talking about. It wasn’t only the judgment of condemning people they will not go to Heaven. The judging also has to do with how people are so quick to point out how sinful others are. How evil others are.
It is right to tell people when they’re going into destruction and help them out but Christians nowadays don’t do in such manner. They tag you with sinfulness and then separate from you and their words or actions speaks to the world how a sinner you are. As though they have never sinned or experience sin before, they stigmatize you whilst they themselves indulge in other sins that the eyes of man may not see but God only.
Jesus did not teach against discernment or helping others overcome sin. Instead, He told us not to be prideful and convinced of our own goodness that we criticize others from a position of self-righteousness.
The Lord Jesus does not tolerate such hypocrisy. If you study Jesus’s words closely, it was mostly hypocrites that He used to say would suffer most in eternal damnation.
We were all sinners and Christ died for us all. If by the grace of God Almighty you have seen The Light before someone, you are supposed to help others who are blinded in darkness see The Light of the World,who is Jesus Christ, and not ostracize them from your life and point out all their sins and how sinful they are.
Before you move ahead to help someone who is in destruction, make sure you yourself are not in destruction. That was what Jesus pointed out in Matthew 7:5.
