A Preacher’s Misconception
Topic: Living to please God
Sub-Topic: Judgment 5
Last week, we learned about the first sub-category of Righteous Judgement. This week, we will be learning the last part. After this post, there will be one more post to wrap up all of the sub-topic on Judgement. Alright let’s get started, everyone.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespasses against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, for ever and ever, Amen.
Righteous Judgement-Correct Judgement, and again we have another two sub-categories.
- One saved person judging another
- One saved person judging an unsaved person on the basis of the bible
Tonight we will be reading on from the verses of Matthew 7:3-5 from part 40 of “A Preacher’s Misconception”.
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in thy own eye? How can you say to your brother, “Let me take the speck out of your eye when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Is a Christian allowed to help someone who is not saved? The short answer is, yes. At this point, many people in the world think its judging when a Christian confronts someone who is not saved, but this is not true. The Christian is helping others. It becomes judging once someone rejects what was giving to them. The only time a Christian could not say anything or help someone else is if they are committing hypocritical judgment. The verse of (Matthew 7:1-5) often gets placed out of context. The bible did not warn against judging others but it has warned against hypocritical judgment. This passage is about hypocritical judgment. When reading scripture, we have to read the passage in its entirety to get the message. As long as they are not making a hypocritical judgment then they are helping. There is also a difference between judging and helping.
Tonight was a short message and I would love to elaborate on this more but I believe we get the message. Instead of worrying about if someone is judging you then think about the message next time and see if it is what God says in his word. Until next time be safe and be blessed, everyone.
