Judging

Judging. Typically, anything that is said contrary to another belief system. Thus, Matthew 7:1 (“Judge not, lest ye be judged”) is used to say that nobody has a right to tell another person that his faith is based on falsehood. However, Jesus did not that His followers ought to “make righteous judgments” (John 7:24) and to “test the spirits” (1 John 4:1). The very idea that someone would say it’s “wrong to judge” would appear to be self-refuting because that statement, by itself, is a judgment statement.
