The Unbeliever's Favorite Scripture...Do Not Judge!

Unbelievers aren't the only ones who like to quote this out of context...MANY believers do, as well. I find that they really only feel the need to do so when they know that what you're saying is right and it convicts them. For more on SCRIPTURAL judgment by Believers, read here!

"It should be noted that this passage has erroneously been used to suggest that believers should never evaluate or criticize anyone for anything. Our day hates absolutes, especially theological and moral absolutes, and such simplistic interpretation provides a convenient escape from confrontation. Members of modern society, including many professing Christians, tend to resist dogmatism and strong convictions about right and wrong. Many people prefer to speak of all-inclusive love, compromise, ecumenism, and unity. To the modern religious person those are the only "doctrines" worth defending, and they are the doctrines to which every conflicting doctrine must be sacrificed..."

We're supposed to keep other believers accountable while confessing our own sin to them. That way God is glorified, and we are humble. Whenever I rebuke someone for sin, I try to confess a sin of my own, too, so that the other person can see that I'm not "lording it over" them.

Hi I'm releasing an eBook at the beginning of next month and was wondering if you might be able to review it. "The Matthew 6:33 Piano Teacher, How to Teach Piano For the Glory of God." It's geared towards the person who wants to make extra income by teaching piano, or the high school/college student who is seriously considering a career in music. I'd also be willing to do a giveaway if there would be interest. Let me know. Thanks!
