只有上帝才能審判我?

我中意討論上帝對我們的生活嘅旨意, 即使有人不同意我的看法. 談話可以得到真正嘅緊張真正快, 雖然-尤其是當我們談論有爭議嘅問題. 話人你認為佢哋錯, 從來都唔係有趣嘅事. 所以我試吓小心我嘅話, 簡單地指出上帝講嘅, 而唔係我自己的意見. 中意鐘錶, 雖然, 在談話中某個階段, 佢哋會拉出王牌: "但是, 聖經唔都話唔判斷? 你方便地飛了首詩, 呵呵?"它永遠唔會衰.

在马修 7 Jesus讲, "不要判斷, 或者你也會被評判。 就算係我哋呢啲從未讀過聖經嘅人, 都能逐字逐句地引用佢講道嘅呢一部分. 可能係我哋一日最廣為人知嘅聖經經文. 它也可能是最被誤解的

誤解節經文意味住我誤解咗我哋應該如何彼此相愛. 因此, 我們問呢個問題好重要: 耶穌告訴我們不要評判, 係咩意思??

佢嘅意思係

上周末, 我和妻子參加咗我哋教堂嘅婚姻研討會. 當我哋行過我哋婚姻的每一個角落和縫隙, 我們不得不討論好, 弊, 同醜樣嘅. 我哋有好多機會互相鼓勵, 但我哋都有機會指出缺點. 在我們的討論過程中, 我老婆幫我睇睇我既地方, 我落空, 喺嗰度, 我冇好似我應該咁有愛嘅地方. 佢唔服從耶穌唔評判我嘅命令? 我唔係噉認為.

耶穌唔講得做出任何道德判斷是錯誤的. 幾節之後, 耶穌講佢嘅聽眾判斷佢哋同邊個分享真相. 和詩句 15 同一章, 耶穌指示佢哋審判那些自稱是先知的人, 看看他們是否真正由上帝說話, 或者如果他們是披着羊皮的狼. 更別提聖經中好多其他段落, 呢啲段落命令我們做出不同類型的道德判斷. 耶穌都唔係話所有嘅判斷係錯嘅. 如果我哋對自己誠實, 我們並不意味著, 無論係.

好多人堅持你唔應該評判任何人, 但他們並不真正相信. 佢哋認為喺佢屋企門前打電話畀毒賣白粉嘅警察係唔啱嘅。. 當個貪婪的傳教士開始乞討佢哋嘅錢時, 佢哋梗係唔認為關掉電視係唔啱嘅。. 跟住有諷刺. 當你叫某人去評判, 你實際上係在對人做出道德判斷. 在每種情況下, 正在作出關於他人行為的判斷.

然而, 當判斷擊中任何地方埋屋企, 佢自動錯誤. 我哋要對別人做出判斷? 讓我們想想耶穌告訴我們不要評判耶穌係咩意思.

佢所講嘅意義

我哋用好多唔同嘅方式使用 "判斷" 呢個詞. 我們可以談論評判選秀節目或審判法庭案件. 這可能意味着好多唔同嘅嘢. 同樣, 耶穌用 "法官" 嘅希臘詞並不總是意味著同樣嘅嘢. 因此, 我哋一定要睇下呢篇文章的其餘部分和聖經的其餘部分, 如果我哋要理解佢嘅意思.

當你繼續閱讀文章, 很明顯, 耶穌攻擊緊一種特定類型的判斷. 他用一個搞笑嘅形象, 一個人誰注意到某人眼中嘅鋸屑斑點, 但忽略了一個事實, 他有一個巨大的日誌在他自己的. 就好似一個赤裸裸的男人唱你條牛仔褲上嘅窿. 耶穌沒有譴責任何形式的審判; 他譴責自以為是, 虛偽的判斷.

在詩句 5 佢話, “You hypocrite, first take the log our of your own eye.” Before we attempt to judge others, we must judge ourselves. Hypocrites hold people to standards that they themselves ignore. And while self-righteous people have a special gift for pointing out your flaws, they’re oblivious to their own. Jesus says that’s a problem. And he tells us God will judge us in return.

It’s ridiculous to harshly condemn others and to stand over them as if your life is perfect. God is the only judge with clean hands. The rest of us are dirty people, pointing each other to the shower.

You notice he never says, “Take the log out, and don’t worry about other people’s eyes.” He actually says, “First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brothers eye.” He’s telling us to examine ourselves, and then to help the brother out.

It’s unloving for me to notice something harmful in your life, but to ignore it like it’s not there. Why would I let someone I love continue to live in a destructive manner? If I love you, I’ll tell you the truth even when it hurts. But it must be based on God’s standard, not my own. And I have to do it from a humble posture that recognizes I need the same grace you do.

Please do obey Matthew 7:1. But don’t forget about Galatians 6:1: “Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently.” We need each other.

    正如我牧師啱啱去一个星期前, 佢係新鮮嘅我的腦海. 布赖恩牧師說 “法官唔正確嘅詞, 如果你讀希臘語, 並閱讀它在上下文中。” 佢跟住講, 更好嘅翻譯會 “唔好作為法官判刑” 或法官噉行事 (舊嘅測試款式). 作出判決同判刑係 2 唔同嘅嘢.

  3. 杰瑞德答覆

    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. 多謝

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

  5. PastorBenJohnson答覆

    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. But, 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.

  7. wesley答覆

    Awesome. 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. Dayami答覆

    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. James答覆

    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. Christoph答覆

    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. MJ答覆

    好話. 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. MarkKing答覆

    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, too.

    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. 如果我哋對自己誠實, 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, “哦, 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.

  18. David答覆

    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. carlosAviles答覆

    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. TeriR答覆

    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. Junior答覆

    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. EJD答覆

    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. Tatenda答覆

    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. Darnell答覆

    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

    Thanks so much for posting this. I think this message is so necessary for Christians in all walks of life to hear. We need to start loving each other the way Jesus called us to which means addressing areas that need to be addressed in compassion.

    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.

    If you really think about it, “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)

    Honestly, 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. Mercy答覆

    哇. 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. thoughts? i could go on all day.
