To Judge or Not to Judge

z10

One of the very few verses (out of context) remembered by liberals

This has become the summarization of the faith: “Judge not, lest you be judged”, not the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Other comments that liberals use to support their claims are, “Do unto others as you want done unto yourself”, and “He who is without sin, cast the first stone.”

Not only is this lack any theological significance, but it also makes conservative Protestants look Catholic.  It relies on emotionalism to move people with their emotions to change their mind.  So, when you criticize another group, as I have done with Protestantism (especially the liberal kind), the “Church of Cannabis”, or Islam, then you are accused of judging.  And we can’t have that now.  Can we?  No.  Jesus came to teach us tolerance and to accept others for what they practice.  Or so we’re told.  The reality is quite different.

The same Jesus who said, “Judge not” also said, “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge just judgment” (John 7:24).  One of the spiritual works of the mercy is to admonish the sinner.  They must be corrected; this in fact is a great act of love as Holy Writ says, “He must know that he who causeth a sinner to be converted from the error of his way, shall save his soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins” (James 5:20).  Remaining silent is not an act of love and yet these preachers of love and tolerance tell us it is.  In the words of Inigo Montoya.

” You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
