Aðeins Guð getur dæmt mig?

Ég elska að ræða vilja Guðs fyrir líf okkar, jafnvel þegar einhver er ósammála mér um það. Samtöl hægt að fá alvöru spenntur raunverulegur fljótur þó, sérstaklega þegar við erum að tala um umdeild málefni. Það er aldrei gaman að segja einhverjum að þú heldur að þeir séu rangt. Svo ég reyni að fara varlega með orð mín, og einfaldlega benda á það sem Guð segir, frekar en eigin skoðanir mínar. eins og Clockwork, þó, á einhverjum tímapunkti á spjallinu, þeir draga út trompet kort: "En ekki Biblían segir heldur ekki að dæma? Þú sleppt þægilega yfir því vísu, ha?"Það bregst aldrei.

í Matteusi 7 Jesús segir, "Ekki dæma, eða þú of vilja vera dæmdir. "Jafnvel þau okkar sem hefur aldrei lesið Biblíuna getur vitnað þessa hluti predikun orðs hans orði. Þetta getur verið mest vel þekkt Biblían vers í dag okkar. Og það getur líka verið mest misskilið

Misskilningur vísu þýðir að við misskilja hvernig við erum að ætlast til að elska hver annan. Svo það er mikilvægt að við spyrja: Hvað þýðir Jesús við þegar hann segir okkur ekki að dæma?

Það sem hann þýðir ekki

Síðustu helgi, konan mín og ég sótti hjónaband verkstæði í kirkjunni okkar. Eins og við gengum í gegnum hvert skotinu og sprunga af hjónabandi okkar, við þurftum að ræða gott, slæmt, og ljót. Við þurftum fjölda möguleika til að hvetja hvert annað, en við þurftum líka tækifæri til að benda á galla. Á viðræðum okkar, konan mín hjálpaði mér að sjá svæði þar sem ég er að falla stutt, þar sem ég ætla ekki að vera eins elskandi eins og ég ætti að vera. Var hún óhlýðnast fyrirmælum Jesú ekki að dæma mig? Ég held ekki.

Jesús getur ekki meina að það sé rangt að gera neinar siðferðilega dóma. Bara nokkrum versum síðar, Jesús segir áheyrendur sína til að gera ákvarðanir um hverjir þeir deila sannleikann með. Og í versi 15 af sama kafla, Jesús instructs þeim að dæma þá sem segjast vera spámenn, til að sjá hvort þeir tala virkilega frá Guði, eða ef þeir eru úlfar í sauðaklæðum. Not to mention the numerous other passages in Scripture that command us to make varying types of moral judgments. Jesús er ekki að segja allt dómgreind er rangt. Og ef við erum heiðarleg við okkur sjálf, við gerum það ekki að annað hvort.

Margir krefjast þess að þú ættir aldrei að dæma neinn, en þeir í raun ekki trúa því. They don’t think it’s wrong to call the cops on the drug dealers selling dope in front of their house. And they certainly don’t think it’s wrong to turn off the TV when that greedy preacher starts begging for their money. Þá er það kaldhæðni. Þegar hringt í einhvern út til að dæma, þú ert í raun að gera siðferðileg dómgreind um viðkomandi. Í öllum þessum tilvikum, dómar eru gerðar um aðgerðir annarra.

Samt, þegar dómur hits hvar nálægt heimili, það er sjálfkrafa rangt. Hver erum við að gera ákvarðanir um aðra? Við skulum hugsa um það sem Jesús þýðir þegar hann segir okkur ekki að dæma.

Hvað hann þýðir

Við notum orðið dómari í fullt af mismunandi vegu. Við gætum verið að tala um að dæma hæfileikakeppni eða dæma dómsmál. Það getur þýtt mikið af mismunandi hlutum. Á sama hátt, Gríska orðið Jesús notar til að "dæma" þýðir ekki alltaf að þýða það sama. Þannig að við verðum að líta á the hvíla af þessari leið og restin af Biblíunni, ef við viljum skilja hvað hann átti við.

Eins og þú halda áfram að lesa framrás, það verður ljóst að Jesús er að ráðast ákveðna tegund af dómi. Hann notar bráðfyndna mynd af manni sem var við einhverja Blettur af sagi í auga einhvers, en hunsar þá staðreynd að hann hefur risa þig inn í hans eigin. Það er eins og nakinn maður gagnrýna holu í gallabuxur. Jesús er ekki að fordæma hvers konar dóm; Hann er að fordæma sjálf-réttlátu, hræsnislaus dómar.

í versi 5 segir hann, "Þú hræsnari, Fyrsta taka log okkar eigin auga. "Áður en við að reyna að dæma aðra, Við verðum að dæma okkur. Hræsnarar halda fólki við staðla sem þeir sjálfir hunsa. Og á meðan sjálf-réttlátu fólk hefur sérstaka gjöf fyrir að benda á galla þína, þeir oblivious til eigin. Jesús segir að er vandamál. Og hann segir okkur að Guð muni dæma okkur í staðinn.

Það er fáránlegt að harkalega dæma aðra og að standa yfir þeim eins og líf þitt er fullkominn. Guð er eini dómari með hreinum höndum. The hvíla af okkur eru skítug fólk, benda hvor aðra í sturtu.

Þú tekur hann segir aldrei, "Taktu skrá út, og ekki hafa áhyggjur óður í augu annarra. "Hann segir reyndar, "Fyrst taka á skrá út úr eigin auga, og þá sérðu glöggt til að draga flísina úr bræður auganu. "Hann er að segja okkur að líta í eigin barm, og þá til að hjálpa bróður út.

Það er kærleikslaust fyrir mig að taka eitthvað skaðlegum í lífi þínu, en til að hunsa það eins og það er ekki þar. Hvers vegna ætti ég að láta einhvern sem ég elska að halda áfram að lifa í eyðileggjandi hátt? Ef ég elska þig, Ég skal segja þér sannleikann, jafnvel þegar það er sárt. En það verður að byggjast á staðlinum Guðs, ekki mitt eigið. Og ég verð að gera það frá auðmjúkur stelling sem viðurkennir ég þurfa sömu náð að gera.

Vinsamlegast ekki hlýða Matt 7:1. En gleymum ekki um Galatabréfið 6:1: "bræður, ef einhver er veiddur í synd, þið sem eruð andlega ættir að endurheimta hann varlega. "Við þurfum hvert annað.

    As my pastor just went over this a week ago it is fresh in my mind. Pastor Brian saidjudge is not the proper word if you read the Greek and read it in context.He went on to say a better translation would have beendon’t sentence as a Judgeor act like a judge (old testement style). Making a judgement and passing a sentence are 2 different things.

    This is really useful in my life right now. I’ve recently been having discussion with my grandma who is not a believer, and I’m trying to show her God’s love. I will confess my sin to her and ask for her forgiveness, and she will forgive but she will rant about how bad I am at certain things. I know I am wrong because of the conviction I already feel from God, but it bothers me a little bit because she does not see her own sin. She just breaks me down. I smile and love her. I understand that I have issues with loving my family, but it bothers me inside a little bit when she doesn’t acknowledge her own sin and is so quick to acknowledge mine. This is some help though. takk

    Good word. I have heard that we should not condemn, but can righteously judge. As in I can say something about a friend who isshacking upbut in doing so, I’m not being hypocritical because I’m not doing it.

  13. MarkKingSvara

    Thanks for elaborating on this Trip. This is a very important subject tin this generation. So much entitlement exists. Love the irony you pointed out, of.

    I see the perception of each judgment as being the problem. Our competitive natures trick us into thinking that someone telling us we are wrong in some dirt if way is an attempt of exaltation. If we see this as a love gesture, it takes on a completely different dynamic.

    One more thing that I caughtYou phrased this one particular part in a way that could confuse people. You said, ” Jesus doesn’tmeanto say all judgment is wrong. Og ef við erum heiðarleg við okkur sjálf, we don’tmeanthat either.

    Just for clarity sake, perhaps a better way to phrase this is thatWe shouldn’t interpret this as Jesus sayingall judgment is wrong.

    A quick read through, and someone might go from reading this to thinking, “Oh, Jesus didn’t mean to say that?” When I’m quite sure Jesus meant to say exactly what He said. It’s Ll in interpretation.

    I know what you meant. Just holding you to the highest if literary standards. I trust you understand why I said that.

    Appreciate your work (all if it, not just the music)! Keep grinding brother!

  21. TeriRSvara

    It’s our motive behind what we say that makes the judgment of our brothers helpful or harmful. Am I thinking, “What you’re doing is wrong! The Bible says so. You need to fix it…” Or is it, “That’s gonna cause pain and I know what that’s like. I care about you and don’t want that for you…”

    Like Trip said, in other places we’re told clearly to judge false teachers.

    It’s clear we need the Holy Spirit’s discernment to make right judgments, so we should be connecting with Him before, during, and after!

    Another good point Trip made is, they won’t hear us even if our heart is in the right place, if we’re not living authentically before God and our brothers.

  23. EJDSvara

    Excellent article! “By their fruit, ye shall know them.Clearly Christ whats us to be circumspect in reviewing othersmost importantly, when we proclaim the Gospel, the first part is explaining how a person is separated from a Holy God due to sin (that’s a moral judgement!) Then we proclaim that faith in Jesus Christ (His redemptive work on the Cross and the Empty Tomb) is the answer to man’s separation from God, the Father! The Gospel message is incomplete if
    we leave out mankind’s LOST position (the Law judges us!) But Christ offers grace to us sinners. As John Newton wrote, “I once was LOST, but now am FOUND!”

  24. TatendaSvara

    Amen bro. I live in Zimbabwe and that verse is even popular here!!! I preach the gospel and I have noticed more times than I care to remember that non-believers and Christians who are not living right use this verse as a shield against correction. Það er sorglegt, really sad

  25. DarnellSvara

    I fully agree with that interpretation of judging according to Matthew 7. I also wanted to add to that by saying that we as Christians are not tojudgethe world or those not in Christ, but wejudgethe body of Christ or the church. God says that he himselfjudgesthe world and not us his children. 1 Corinthians 5:12-13

    Ef þú heldur um það, “Don’t judge me.”, is actually judgemental.

    If someone is trying to help you, and you accuse them of judging you……technically, you are judging them. (And wrongly accusing them at that)

    heiðarlega, you can judge me if you want, I may need correction. (“Correct in love”) Just don’t judge me for my past or by anything but the Word.

    Vá. This was a great post. Lately, I’ve been trying to remind myself of Matthew 7 but kind of forgot what it meant. And we do need to help each other out but not be harsh about it. I agree completely. It’s kinda sad seeing ppl harshly criticize other ppl and seeing the criticized feel broken. The criticizing are obviously not perfect but they seem to not even realize it. It’s upsetting. More people need to live by Matthew 7. And the last verse was great to. People aren’t going to want to walk a path where everyone on the sidelines are spitting on them.

    so here is a question for you. for the past few years i have been working on not jugding anyone for anything. as a addict pretty much everyone in the world jugdes you and this means that somehow these people now know everything about you. even what your thinking or what your gonna do or even how you will act or they may tell you how you feel about something. i really dont get how people can do this. its really bad. i have come to find out there are so many people out there that hate me, and they have never even met me. theres no way to control what pops into our head. mental pre jugdment can be used to prepare yourself personally for things you think may occure cause of what you notice about someone. but if you just pay good attention and can pick up on little things that show fact about someone is that still jugding? and then theres the question about assumption. by far the worst way to jugde somebody. i dont get it. even though you just told this person that you dont trust them to carry out some task because of (usually no reason) OTHER THEN thats just how i feel and is what I KNOW you will do. of course if this person has been known to fail, history can and will repeat, but to tell someone how they feel, think, or how there going to act is bullshit. its basically blind jugdment. and either that person will now feel encompetant and wont even try, or someone like me, will guentee to prove that person so wrong that they will never say that again. but even though you prove yourself time and time again. same assumptions. hugsanir? i could go on all day.
