I don't really get the connection between this particular scripture and your question, but, if you skip back a few chapters and read 5:9-13, you will see that those within the church that always holler "Judge not lest ye be judged" when defending their sinful lifestyle, have not a leg to stand on- for this passage clearly tells us that we ARE to judge each other (Christians, or so-called) but NOT to judge those whose eyes have not yet been opened.

"Judging" and "condemning" are two different things.

I believe that we should by the word jugde what is right from wrong, this does not mean to judge if someone is going to heaven or hell, that would be to take Christ off the cross. But we have every right to say according to the word of God this is correct or this is incorrect.

Part 3 The only righteous judgement is the judgement of self. For If we would truly judge ourselves, perceiving and recognizing our own limitations, short comings and weakness, not only should we not be judged, we would never judge another. 1st Cor. 11:31

Part 2 of 2. John 8:15 Jesus when speak with the self-righteous told them that they judged, or based their decision to declare someone wrong on their sensual perceptions. I, as Jesus judge no man. Only The Father knows the heart. Rom.14:13 "Let us not therefore judge one another any more," 1st Cor. 4:5 "Judge nothing before the Lord comes" John 7:24 "Judge not according to appearances, but judge righteous judgement" cont. part3

Ist Cor. 8:1-2 is telling us that we all as believers have a knowledge of what is right or wrong for ourselves, however if we press a conformity to our standards by others we show only pride and arrogance, not love. For love does not put another down in any way, rather it makes an attempt to lift them to a higher level. Therefore these verses disagree with the judgment of others. Part 1 of 2

Even non-Christians and cults will know the scripture "judge not yest you be judged". However, the Bible does tell us to "test the spirits", and also we are to know people by their fruits. Those in Christ will produce good fruits!

That we constantly judge others is a fact of life. And the best way to judge others is to be aware of how the Lord Jesus Christ has dealt with us. Oh I am so thankful today for His unending mercy that is renewed day my day. Thank you Jesus

Excellent response Fred. No better answer to this question could have been given.

If judging means determining another's final destiny, I am against it but I have no trouble with evaluating what someone does or writes etc. P.

We are not to judge motives. We can/should judge doctrine and practices.
---Bruce5656 on 3/3/06

We aren't to judge others but we are to know them by their fruits. Anyone in Christ should bear good fruits.

1 Corinthians 4:4-5
For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
