Today we’re going to talk about judging others, but first, let me ask you this: Does the Bible ever contradict itself? Well, we, of course, believe that it doesn’t. We believe that it’s perfect. And I know, because it’s an old book, because it’s hard to understand, because Christians have not always lived a good example for non-believers, because there’s self-will in the human heart, and therefore a bias against obedience to God, some people don’t believe that it’s perfect. That’s okay. It’s not my truth. We’re all going to learn which way it is, one way or the other, at some point, so there’s no need to argue about it. We can just wait. But we will stake out our position for discussion’s sake today.
Let’s look at two scriptures. The first is in John 7:24.
John 7:24 – Do not judge by appearances, but judge with righteous judgment.
There’s one. Now let’s look at another: Matthew 7:1.
Matthew 7:1 – Judge not that you be not judged.
