Critical Judgemental Christian

I know someone who proclaims to be Christian, and is very critical and judgmental of others. They have made many false promises. They seem to be in good standing at their church. What can I do to make them aware of this behavior? What scripture would pertain to this?

Start with Pro.16:3 Commit unto the Lord whatever you do,and your plans will succeed. Pr.16:6 (once) friend who now says "wants nothing to do with God" the best thing I pray for her. often I did speak to her,She worse!

I must use wisdom, caution. I do NOT give up! God can ( through which ever way he pleases bring about a circumstance, she re- think her life,now ...while she alive there is hope she will repent & come bk to serve the Lord.

Not judge but, use caution! She speaks evil against me, talk often about me, people shy away from her.right out side near my window. I pray she will give her life back to Jesus. I hold NO grudge but, have to be wise. We both go our separate ways.

Anne: Please mind your own business. We all have fallen short of God's standards. Leave the judging to God,even if your friends does not follow this advice/script. You are playing God in this person's life. Is he/she a friend or family member of yours? Why do you care? God is able to take care of these type people. I am more concerned about you and why you feel you should take this upon yourself to do. I would suggest to you: if this is bothering you that much. Leave this person alone. Don't have anything to do with him/her. Put much distance between you two. We do have choices, you know. Choose to be free from worrying about what this person is doing. Move on. For your sake, not theirs.

Ask them to tell you about the shed blood of Christ. If they can't, you may be dealing with a false prophet. Matthew 26:28 (KJV) 28 "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." You could also remind them of what the Bible teaches about those who judge others. Luke 6:37-38 (KJV) 37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

good luck to you anne.
I have noticed that christians DO NOT admit about their mistakes, sins.
I have noticed that they are 'crafty' know how to manipulate & exploit the bible.
that is common in the church.
they are critical, judgemental but when you point that they have sinned, their response is 'ye not judge me.'

sag...Thank you brother. I find the same thing is happening over and over. People post on these blogs with very criticizing questions about people that are very hard to deal with, not realizing that they themselves have the very same problem.

And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. Matthew 23:12

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18

The LORD of hosts hath purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, and to bring into contempt all the honourable of the earth. Isaiah 23:9

There's a few, get a bible promise book, or some Bible software...and also make sure you're not behaving like David's brother in 1 Samuel 17:28...that's MOST important.

Anne...Isn't it funny how you are now being very critical and judgmental of this person?
---KarenD on 10/16/10

Your responses to some of my postings let me to SEE that I needed to become LESS critical and judgmental myself. Like with Jimmy Swaggart. Thanks for your input.

Sometimes, another person's perspective, hint, reminder, etc. is all it takes to help someone else SEE something they might no be aware of. The Bible says we should help others become more "Christ like".

I think that MANY of us need to work on over-coming "critical" spirits. Not just Anne.

Not one of God's own. God is not speaking today of His own people, in this thing called judging, because, we are allowed. We will be judging the angels and unbelievers.....SCRIPTURE: Do not judge so that you will not be judged"[ Mat. 7:1]. God is speaking this morning to all the hypocrites. I am always preaching, not to point fingers at others, because, you do not know what you are capable of, my friends [God knows]. I am sure that when God created Adam and Eve, the furthers thing from their mind was to disobey their Creator. You don't want to disobey your Creator in anything, especially a direct order, which is what Adam and Eve did. In any-case, the worse judges in this world are judges behind and in front of the bench.

Bill - I think some of your story was ommited by the blog. But THANK YOU for showing how easily any of us can miss God's best... and what a gift it is when Christian people pray for us instead of condemning. Their Christ-like love makes it so much easier for the wayward to see their error and return to the Lord for forgiveness and healing.
1Pe 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Anne, if another Christian is overcome by some sin, you, as one who is godly, should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. However, be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Support her through her weakness, with your strength to refrain from the same. We all have weaknesses, and it is always good to remember that "if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself." Be sure to do what you know you should, and you will enjoy the personal satisfaction of having of having set a good example. Never compare yourself to anyone else, or them to you. For each of us are responsible for our own conduct. Refs. Gal.6:1-5

Are you sure that others are not aware of her bahavior? A critical, judgmental person usually makes her opinions well known to any who will listen. "False promises" are something else that generally do not go unnoticed. Whether she attends your church or another, you can bet she doesn't fool very many people...even if they appear not to notice.

Why do you feel it is your responsibility to point out her flaws to others? Do you think they should treat her more harshly than they do? She probably brings a lot of suffering on herself. If she truly IS a Christian, the Holy Spirit is probably working on her even now.

The tragedy of that included how I was missing out on how I could have appreciated and shared with the really Christian people. I was so busy with criticizing, that I missed out on appreciating the really Christian people. And I fell from faith and then had everyone gawking at me, after I had been putting them all down. There will be a fall, likely.

But I would say people prayed for me and knew they could not force me to change and see my wrong: "nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3) Now I can feel back to see the good example of ones who cared for me, though I didn't get it, then. So . . . thank you all (c:

Just make sure it isn't you! Galatians 6:1

If you are a member of this church, then go to the pastor with what you know and ON YOUR KNEES tell him.

If this person is not in your church, then MYOB.
