What does this mean to you..... Luke 6:37“Moreover, stop judging, and YOU will by no means be judged; and stop condemning, and YOU will by no means be condemned. Keep on releasing, and YOU will be released

    Don't be a hater. It seems like so many Christians directly disobey this. You know, the whole "your Christians are so unlike your Christ" thing.

    It means that it is not our place. God is the judge. We are all flawed and have issues, so our judgements are therefore flawed. God is righteous, therefore he is the only true and perfect judge of a person's character.

    It also has a very practical application to life, and I read it like this:

    "I you spend your time judging people by your own standards, then people will turn around and hold you to that same standard when you slip up. Most people aren't able keep the standards that the hold others too. Since only God and the individual knows why a person does what they do, let God be the judge."

    if you read the parellel passage in Matthew 7, it goes right on to tell you to "remove the plank from your own eye" before "removing the speck from your brother's eye." In other words, don't fixate on everyone's else's imperfections. You've got plenty of your own. Sin does in fact need to be addressed, but when it does, make sure you have your own house in order.

    yes and I also liked the bit proir in Matthew 7:Matthew 7:2for with what judgment YOU are judging, YOU will be judged; and with the measure that YOU are measuring out, they will measure out to YOU

    Just as you said here the same standards applying to us that we use upon others excellent thank you

    Luke 6:37
    King James Version (KJV)
    37Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

    It means that if you judge others, you will be judged: if you condemn, you shall be condemned: if you forgive, you shall be forgiven.

    However, I don't think preaching the Word of God regarding sins, and rebuking the sins of our world are judgments; Judgments require a personal decision making process that takes power onto oneself for the acts of another, while knowing/stating absolutes which God has put fourth requires no personal decision making processes: since they are outlined by God through His Word.

    For Instance:
    1. People who kill have committed a sin, because killing is a sin stated in the Bible.
    2. Stealing is a sin, because stealing is mentioned against in the Bible.
    3. Not loving each other is a sin, because we are told to Love each other.

    Take care,

    thanks for sharing but I can't help but wonder if one knows something is wrong and does nothing to have what is wrong fixed whether or not that makes a person still acountable for their own personal decision?

    Is indecision a sin when it promotes sins? Is that what you are basically asking?

    I believe you can sin by doing nothing, when God's Word obligates you to do something through His Word.

    For instance:
    You watch as a child gets raped, while you could of done something to stop it: this would violate the commandment to Love your neighbor as yourself.

    Take care,
  • freespire Anthony... 2012/04/15 08:38:31
    actaully watching a child or anyone get raped would be a sin of fornication in the first place while you have the chance to speak up and make the person stop their cruel actions upon the brother or sister who is begin raped.

    and as the bible say you do not have to sin to open your mouth and say hey what do you think your doing and cause the adulter to lose their interest enough for their sex drive to dissapear in that instance.

    doing nothing is the same as committing the sin yourself.

    it means....
    ...a lot of wishful thinking. "Good" behavior generally goes unnoticed, so people are going to judge and condemn one at the earliest opportunity, regardless. It's human nature.
  • freespire sockpuppet 2012/04/15 08:02:17
    so does that mean they will be off the hook from this ?

    Matthew 7:2for with what judgment YOU are judging, YOU will be judged; and with the measure that YOU are measuring out, they will measure out to YOU
  • sockpuppet freespire 2012/04/15 12:00:56
    Oh, you're talking about some kind of divine judgment. I was talking about that of other people. I guess it's your story-- you decide how it plays out.
  • freespire sockpuppet 2012/04/15 12:04:48
    well not really you are on the right track for two reasons

    yes Divine will be one that we all answer for not saying thats not true for onee moment :-)))

    but I was thinking of how the scripture applies to us all as people like you were talkign about human nature and the foolishness we entertain to make ourself in our own eyes better than someone else.

    thanks for your thoughts they are good
