In this episode of Conservative Pastor Response Pastors Neal Radichel and Nathanael Mayhew take up a Skeptics approach to Judging others. The phrase "Don't Judge Me" is heard by many Christians who seek to lead a friend or fellow believer out of sin. In this episode they talk about the purpose of pointing out sin and the proper, God pleasing and even demanded judgment that we should carry out as Christians. One passage that is often quoted is Matthew 7:1 where Jesus says: "Judge not, lest you be judged." But the context of this verse shows that Christians are called to judge, but with righteous judgment and by first confessing one's own sin before pointing out the sin of another. They will also discuss the account of the woman caught in adultery in John 8 as an example from Jesus Himself of proper Christian judgment. May the Lord give us all wisdom and humility as we encourage and admonish one another in this sin-filled world!
