Somente Deus pode me julgar?

Adoro discutir a vontade de Deus para nossas vidas, mesmo quando alguém discorda de mim sobre isso. As conversas podem cair na real tensa real rápido embora, especialmente quando estamos a falar de questões controversas. Nunca é divertido para dizer a alguém que você acha que eles estão errados. Então, eu tento ter cuidado com as minhas palavras, e simplesmente apontar para o que Deus diz, em vez de minhas próprias opiniões. como um relógio, embora, em algum momento durante a conversa, eles vão puxar o trunfo: "Mas não a Bíblia também diz para não julgar? Você convenientemente pulado que o verso, Hã?"Nunca falha.

em Mateus 7 Jesus diz, "Não julgue, ou você também será julgado. "Mesmo aqueles de nós que nunca leu a Bíblia pode citar esta parte da sua palavra por palavra sermão. Este pode ser o mais conhecido versículo da Bíblia em nossos dias. E também pode ser o mais incompreendido

Incompreensão este verso significa que nós não compreendem como é que é suposto amar uns aos outros. Por isso, é importante que fazemos a pergunta: O que Jesus quer dizer quando ele nos diz para não julgar?

O que ele não quer dizer

Fim de semana passado, minha esposa e eu participei de um seminário casamento em nossa igreja. Como andamos por todos os cantos do nosso casamento, tivemos de discutir o bom, o mal, eo feio. Tivemos inúmeras chances para encorajar uns aos outros, mas também tivemos chances para apontar deficiências. Durante nossas discussões, minha esposa me ajudou a ver as áreas onde estou aquém, onde eu não estou sendo tão amoroso como eu devo ser. ela estava desobedecendo a ordem de Jesus não me julgar? Eu não penso assim.

Jesus não pode dizer que é errado fazer quaisquer julgamentos morais. Apenas alguns versículos depois, Jesus diz a seus ouvintes a fazer julgamentos sobre quem eles compartilham a verdade com. E no verso 15 do mesmo capítulo, Jesus instrui-los a julgar aqueles que afirmam ser profetas, para ver se eles realmente falar de Deus ou se eles são lobos em pele de ovelha. Not to mention the numerous other passages in Scripture that command us to make varying types of moral judgments. Jesus não quer dizer todo o julgamento está errado. E se formos honestos com nós mesmos, não queremos dizer que tanto.

Muitas pessoas insistem que você nunca deve julgar ninguém, mas eles realmente não acreditam que. 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. Depois, há a ironia. Quando você chamar alguém para julgar, você está realmente fazendo um julgamento moral sobre essa pessoa. Em cada um destes casos, julgamentos estão sendo feitas sobre as ações dos outros.

Ainda, quando o julgamento bate em qualquer lugar perto de casa, ele é automaticamente errado. Quem somos nós para fazer julgamentos sobre os outros? Vamos pensar sobre o que Jesus quer dizer quando nos diz para não julgar.

O que ele faz média

Usamos a palavra juiz em uma série de maneiras diferentes. Poderíamos estar falando sobre a julgar um show de talentos ou julgar um processo judicial. Pode significar um monte de coisas diferentes. similarmente, a palavra grega Jesus usa para "julgar" nem sempre significa a mesma coisa. Portanto, temos de olhar para o resto desta passagem eo restante da Bíblia, se quisermos entender o que ele quis dizer.

Como você continuar lendo a passagem, torna-se claro que Jesus está a atacar um tipo específico de julgamento. Ele usa uma imagem divertida de um homem que percebe um cisco no olho de alguém, mas ignora o fato de que ele tem um log gigantesca em sua própria. Isso é como um homem nu criticar o buraco em seu jeans. Jesus não está condenando qualquer tipo de julgamento; Ele está condenando farisaico, julgamentos hipócritas.

Inverso 5 ele diz, "Hipócrita, tire primeiro a viga nossa de seu próprio olho. "Antes de tentarmos julgar os outros, devemos julgar a nós mesmos. Hipócritas manter as pessoas com os padrões que eles próprios ignoram. E enquanto as pessoas hipócritas tem um dom especial para apontar suas falhas, eles são inconscientes de seus próprios. Jesus diz que é um problema. E ele nos diz que Deus nos julgará em troca.

É ridículo para condenar severamente os outros e estar em pé sobre eles como se sua vida é perfeita. Deus é o único juiz com as mãos limpas. O resto de nós são pessoas sujas, apontando uns aos outros para o chuveiro.

Você percebe que ele nunca diz, "Tire a trave, e não se preocupe com os olhos de outras pessoas. "Na verdade, ele diz, "Tire primeiro a viga do seu olho, e então você verá claramente para tirar o cisco do seu olho irmãos. "Ele está nos dizendo para examinar a nós mesmos, e depois para ajudar o irmão para fora.

É falta de amor para mim a notar algo prejudicial em sua vida, mas para ignorá-lo, como ele não está lá. Por que eu iria deixar alguém que eu amo continuar a viver de uma maneira destrutiva? Se eu te amo, Eu vou te dizer a verdade, mesmo quando dói. Mas deve ser baseado no padrão de Deus, não a minha própria. E eu tenho que fazê-lo a partir de uma postura humilde que reconhece que preciso a mesma graça que você faz.

Por favor, obedeça Matthew 7:1. Mas não se esqueça sobre Gálatas 6:1: "Brothers, se alguém é pego em um pecado, vós que sois espirituais deverão restaurá-lo com cuidado. "Nós precisamos uns dos outros.

    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!

    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. obrigado

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

  5. PastorBenJohnsonResposta

    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. Mas, we need to be examining ourselves throughout! Great blog Trip Lee!

    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.

    Impressionante. 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.

    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.

  12. MJResposta

    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. MarkKingResposta

    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, também.

    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 formos honestos com nós mesmos, 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, “ó, 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!

    Obrigado. 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.

  20. carlosAvilesResposta

    muito encorajador. 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.

  21. TeriRResposta

    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.

    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.

  23. EJDResposta

    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. TatendaResposta

    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. É triste, really sad

  25. DarnellResposta

    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

  37. MichaelResposta

    Se você realmente pensar sobre isso, “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)

    Honestamente, 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.

  38. MercyResposta

    Uau. 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.

  41. kyleResposta

    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. pensamentos? i could go on all day.
