Why Do Christians Judge
Who believes that the only people who judge are "Christians"?
non "christians" do too.
Okay put it this way you can't rephrase that statement and say all who follow God, because you simply do not have a shred of truth or evidence to prove that...
So how do you manage the latter?

Phil, I agree with you and Warwick. There is many reasons why people get upset when other Christians judge what they say or belief. The main one is that the website is world wide, and there are many who are not Christian, and consider themselves Christian, some who are only here to argue, and some heretic from the Mormon and Jehovah witnesses, and even athiest who do not even believe there is a God. So we find that defending the faith is very important. When someone teaches something that is not Scriptural, we cannot help but try to proof their teachings are not from the Bible. Only about two people here belief they are perfect and sinless, they don't argue but condemn everyone who opposes them, because in their mind, they can do no wrong.

Janice it depends upon what you mean by judge. We are told to judge the difference between God's word and error, and to reject the latter. And to judge and eject evil people from the Church. But it is God who ultimately judges evil, and imposes sentence, not us. But I think you mean the attitude of judgementalism where some Christians have such attitude, condemning others while sinning themselves. I am afraid we all do this on some occasions.

The nations were never given God's oracles or legislation. Those things, the Law, the Prophets, the rituals and sacrifices, belong to the Jew alone.
The nations, or Gentiles, do have within themselves the ACTION of the law written in their hearts, their consciences bearing witness accusing or excusing one another.
Believers, depending on their position before God, have the truth on their side. Sometimes their accusations hit a deeper level because of their knowledge.
While their judgments may be true, they forget the grace of God that saved them. They return to their gentile mindset, not able to minister the grace that was given to them.

In my judgment Christians judge because they are human, and all humans judge. Paul said not to judge others, and claimed not even to judge himself. But his own writings give lie to all that as he was very judgmental, as well as introspective.

How do you know if a child did wrong or if a child did right without first judging that act? If your child did something wrong and you did not judge that he did wrong do you not punish that child? And If that child did right and you did not judge that righteousness do you not reward that child?

I can say ,some christians feel superior than others and this made them feel and think
more righteous than others,forgetting what is written in Matthew 7:3 ""Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye"?
I think the right thing to do is to get busy with our ownselves...how we are as a christian and how God sees us :)

How come there are so many Christians think they are being judged?
---aka on 7/16/12|
Some feel they must diminish the worth of other people so they can feel more superior. They don't realize they are doing it for that reason but more often than not they are. If all people would realize it takes a perfect person,God like in all ways, to be worthy to judge,they might see they aren't qualified,no one on earth is that perfect. I would never want to judge other people on this earth because if I judge wrong then their blood,so to speak,is on my hands. Its better to pray for them in love than to crucify them in ignorance.

Every Christian judges right. Jesus Commands: "Judge not according to the appearance, but Judge righteous judgment". Jn.7:24.

Some people don't realize that they are judging others, but it is something to be careful of, because you might find yourself going through that same thing and remembering that you judge someone else in that situation you are in and you just couldn't understand at the time you judged them how they could do what they did, until you remember this is the same thing you are going through and say to yourself wow I see why they did what they did. Matt7:1-2

Why Do Christians Judge
Why do Christians, walk around and judge others?
---Janice on 6/5/12
1 Corinthians 5:3 For I.. have judged already,
1 Corinthians 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
1 Corinthians 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
1 Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
1 Corinthians 6:4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church

Eloy...Is mean-spirited answers a fruit of the Spirit?

If we don't offer our remarks to another person with kindness and a little finesse, we may win the argument but we will assuredly lose the person.

Each soul reveals whether they are saved, or not. Jesus tells us:
"By their fruits you all will know them. Do people gather from thorns a bunch of grapes? or from briars figs? So every good tree yields good fruit, but a corrupt tree yields bad fruit. A good tree cannot yield bad fruit, neither a corrupt tree yield good fruit. Every tree not yielding good fruit, will be cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you all will know them." Mt.7:16-20.

How is it that Eloy can "judge" who is Christian and who is not?
---KarenD on 6/6/12|
well see there are two trees,if we pick Our fruit from the tree of life ,we love... if we pick our fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, we have deemed things,people,places,good or bad,and left no room for love...

Christians judge others because it is easier and more convenient to get the speck of out someone else's eye than it is to get the plank out of their own.
---pg1 on 6/6/12|
They don't. NonChristians do.

Janice, many people quote what is written in Matthew 7:1, and say "JUDGE NOT, THAT YE BE NOT JUDGED".
But these very people avoid what is written in Matthew 7:2-5.
---Rob on 6/5/12|
What do you mean by "Judge others"? We are not to judge by our own stardards. We are not to call out someone else's sins if we're swimming daily in a pool of our own and not dealing with them. But, the Lord says that "...by their fruits ye shall know them". If a person claims to be a Christian, but they are walking in SIN, they must be confronted about it, in Humility and in Love. We are to judge by Righteous, Wise and Godly judgment, NOT unwise and fleshly judgment.
---Gordon on 6/5/12|
Not all Christians judge others. Some do, and that is sad. The critical judges never truly humbled themselves and never really comprehended the enormity of their own sin.
I am reminded of the Parable where the Pharisee was praying, bragging about how righteous he had been, and the peasant was beating his chest, asking the Lord to have mercy on him.
