Solo Dio può giudicarmi?

Mi piace discutere la volontà di Dio per la nostra vita, anche quando qualcuno non è d'accordo con me su di esso. Le conversazioni possono ottenere reali tesa reale veloce anche se, soprattutto quando si parla di questioni controverse. Non è mai divertente da dire a qualcuno che si pensa si sbagliano. Quindi cerco di stare attenti con le mie parole, e semplicemente puntare a ciò che Dio dice, piuttosto che le mie opinioni. come un orologio, anche se, ad un certo punto durante la conversazione, faranno tirare fuori la carta vincente: "Ma la Bibbia non dice anche di non giudicare? È comodamente saltato sopra quel verso, eh?"E non manca mai.

in Matteo 7 Gesù dice, "Non giudicare, o anche voi sarete giudicati ". Anche quelli di noi che non hanno mai letto la Bibbia può citare questa parte della sua parola per parola sermone. Questo può essere il più noto versetto della Bibbia ai nostri giorni. E può anche essere il più incompreso

Incomprensione questo verso significa che comprende male come noi dovremmo amarci. Quindi è importante che ci poniamo la domanda: Cosa significa Gesù, quando ci dice di non giudicare?

Quello che non significa

Lo scorso fine settimana, mia moglie ed io abbiamo partecipato un workshop matrimonio presso la nostra chiesa. Come abbiamo camminato attraverso ogni angolo del nostro matrimonio, abbiamo dovuto discutere del bene, il cattivo, e il cattivo. Abbiamo avuto numerose occasioni per incoraggiare l'un l'altro, ma abbiamo anche avuto occasioni per mettere in evidenza le carenze. Durante le nostre discussioni, mia moglie mi ha aiutato a vedere le aree in cui sto cadendo breve, dove io non sto facendo come amare come dovrei essere. Stava disobbedendo comando di Gesù 'non giudicare me? Io non la penso così.

Gesù non può significare che è sbagliato fare qualsiasi giudizio morale. A pochi versi dopo, Gesù dice ai suoi ascoltatori a dare giudizi su chi condividono la verità con. E in versi 15 dello stesso capitolo, Gesù li istruisce per giudicare coloro che affermano di essere profeti, per vedere se realmente parlano da Dio o se sono lupi travestiti da pecore. Not to mention the numerous other passages in Scripture that command us to make varying types of moral judgments. Gesù non vuol dire ogni giudizio è sbagliato. E se siamo onesti con noi stessi, non intendiamo che o.

Molte persone insistono sul fatto che non si dovrebbe mai giudicare nessuno, ma in realtà non credono che. 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. Poi c'è l'ironia. Quando si chiama qualcuno per giudicare, si sta effettivamente facendo un giudizio morale su quella persona. In ciascuno di questi casi, i giudizi sono stati fatti circa le azioni degli altri.

Ancora, quando il giudizio colpisce ovunque vicino a casa, è automaticamente sbagliato. Chi siamo noi per dare giudizi sugli altri? Pensiamo a ciò che Gesù vuol dire, quando noi non dice di giudice.

Ciò che Egli significa

Usiamo la parola giudice in un sacco di modi diversi. Potremmo parlare di giudicare un talent show o giudicare un caso giudiziario. Può significare un sacco di cose diverse. allo stesso modo, la parola greca Gesù usa per "giudicare" non significa sempre la stessa cosa. Quindi dobbiamo guardare al resto di questo passaggio e il resto della Bibbia, se vogliamo capire cosa intendesse.

Come si continua a leggere il passaggio, diventa chiaro che Gesù sta attaccando un tipo specifico di giudizio. Egli usa un immagine divertente di un uomo che si accorge di una pagliuzza nell'occhio di qualcuno, ma ignora il fatto che ha un enorme registro nel proprio. E 'come un uomo nudo criticare il buco in jeans. Gesù non sta condannando qualsiasi tipo di giudizio; Sta condannando ipocrita, giudizi ipocrite.

nel versetto 5 lui dice, "Ipocrita, togli prima la trave nostra tuo occhio. "Prima si cerca di giudicare gli altri, dobbiamo giudicare noi stessi. Ipocriti tenere la gente a norme che essi stessi ignorano. E mentre benpensanti hanno un dono speciale per sottolineare i tuoi difetti, sono ignari proprio. Gesù dice che è un problema. E lui ci dice che Dio ci giudicherà in cambio.

E 'ridicolo a condannare duramente gli altri e di stare su di loro come se la tua vita è perfetta. Dio è l'unico giudice con le mani pulite. Il resto di noi sono persone sporche, indicando l'altro per la doccia.

Si nota non dice mai, "Prendere il log out, e non ti preoccupare gli occhi degli altri. "Dice realtà, "In primo luogo prendere la trave dal tuo occhio, e poi ci vedrai bene per togliere la pagliuzza dal tuo occhio fratelli. "Ci sta dicendo a esaminare noi stessi, e quindi di aiutare il fratello fuori.

E 'senza amore per me notato qualcosa di nocivo nella vostra vita, ma di ignorarlo come se non c'è. Perché dovrei lasciare che qualcuno che amo continuano a vivere in modo distruttivo? Se ti amo, Ti dirò la verità anche quando fa male. Ma deve essere basato sullo standard di Dio, non la mia. E devo farlo da un umile postura che riconosce ho bisogno la stessa grazia che fate.

Si prega di rispettare Matthew 7:1. Ma non dimenticate di Galati 6:1: "Fratelli, se qualcuno e 'colto in peccato, voi che siete spirituali dovrebbe lui ripristinare dolcemente. "Abbiamo bisogno l'uno dell'altro.

    This is the most accurate definition of that verse. Thank you brother I have been struggling with this. Thanks my brother keep doing what you doing!
    Your Brother in Christ!

    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. Grazie

    Very good way of putting it and analysis of scripture. God bless you. What is Love? I’ve been spending a long time on that simple question……woah

  5. PastorBenJohnsonrispondere

    Right on! To go along with this, Paul says in 1 Corinthians 5:12: “What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside.

    It is our job as believers to hold our brothers and sisters in Christ accountable. Ma, we need to be examining ourselves throughout! Great blog Trip Lee!

  6. Tonyrispondere

    Thanks Trip, this is an important part of scripture to understand correctly. Thank you for this post. You have put into words what i have been thinking. I’m a youth pastor, and this is something ive been wanting to talk with my students about. I will be sure to use this post and expand on these points. Again thank you, for all that you do and will do. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family.

  7. wesleyrispondere

    Eccezionale. I’m so tired of people [Christians are at the forefront, along with many others] throwing this verse out like it trumps all. It’s used as a get out of ________ free card. Not at all what the writer was saying. Thanks for articulating.

  8. Dayamirispondere

    Awesome teaching here. I’m always blessed by your posts. I thank God for using you the way he does. You are not just called to make music, but to the pulpit.

    God bless u and your family!

  9. Sharon C. Jamesrispondere

    Thank you so much for sharing this thought. I will be sharing your post and pray that the many that have made this their banner, understand it exactly as Christ meant it, as well as Galatians 6:1. Stay blessed.

  10. Christophrispondere

    I like to quote back Jesus in John 7:24 – “judge with a righteous judgement.That disarms the objection and leads into an opportunity to explain what he means, as you did in your post.

  11. MJrispondere

    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.

  12. MarkKingrispondere

    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, pure.

    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. E se siamo onesti con noi stessi, 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!

    Deep truth being spoken on this one.
    God bless your ministry.
    I often think that when we fully understand our state of sinfulness, we then approach our neighbor with compassion and love.

    Thank you. One of the most accurate descriptions of that verse and what it means that I have seen. Every Christian should examine themselves through Gods eyes when speaking to another.

  19. carlosAvilesrispondere

    Very encouraging. And I try and fail. I catch myself from time to time and I know I should look within first before I speak and help someone get back on a Holy path.
    Thanks Trip Lee.

  20. TeriRrispondere

    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.

  21. Juniorrispondere

    Ive been struggling with this for a while now. But reading this article has made me feel 10 times better than before. Thanks Trip! God bless brother.

  22. EJDrispondere

    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!”

  23. Tatendarispondere

    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. It’s sad, really sad

  24. Darnellrispondere

    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

    Please pray that I will have an open heart to the truth; that I will know it and be set free; that I will have faith in Jesus and repentance of my sin. That I will receive his grace. That I won’t be offended by my need but by sin. Thank you.

    Se davvero pensate, “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)

    Onestamente, 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.

  37. Mercyrispondere

    Wow. 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. pensieri? i could go on all day.
