Those who are touchy feely and quickly get offended and fail to take responsibility for this are in fact very much uncorrectable and if you don't take correction then you are unteachable.
Be careful. Are these not both judgemental phrases?Christian snowflakes?
May the understanding of our Lord Jesus give us wisdom to hear Him Always.perhaps we could understand better with an example
I think the confussion is not so much in making a judgement of actions, but judgement of the person.I disagree... sometimes we need to judge.
1 Cor 5:12; For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?
1 Cor 11:13; Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
1 Cor 11:29; For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly.
John 7:24; [COLOR=red]"Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."[/COLOR]
Matt 18:15; [COLOR=red]"If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother.[/COLOR]
How did you determine your brother sinned? You judged him.
Luke 6:42; [COLOR=red]"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye.[/COLOR]
This verse doesn't say "don't judge", it says make sure you are being a hypocrite if you are going to judge someone.
Sometimes, just determining if something is right or wrong is judging.
Luke 7:43; Simon answered and said, "I suppose the one whom he forgave more." And He said to him, [COLOR=red]"You have judged correctly."[/COLOR]
Acts 16:15; And when she and her household had been baptized, she urged us, saying, "If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house and stay." And she prevailed upon us.

The word judicial... comes from "judge". Discerning right from wrong... is judging.
1 Cor 5:11; But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a one.
How can we do this if we don't judge them?
1 Cor 5:13; But those who are outside, God judges. REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES.
The root of this word.. is actually translated as "judge" in over a dozen verses.

Agreed, that is what I was trying to imply.
You don't need to judge anyone, if you learn how not to blame yourself when people treat you bad. Other people's actions are only a concern when we try to change what we do to change them.I taught that any man like chuck messler who teaches bible code and was not supported by one biblical teacher (who wrote a book in the bible) makes his teachings not only unbiblical but demonic too......
Someone has said: who are you to judge a godly man? - I believe thats how it went...
So people are we to judge? Yes we are, just as were to expose false teachers to the flock....
Does the verse say: thou shall not judge? No it doesnt.. it says:
Thou shall not judge LEAST YOU BE JUDGED IN LIKE MANNER...
So God lays out right and wrong for Believers......and when we see any man or women doing right or wrong were to look to Gods word and know them by the fruit they produce... we are making judgement calls on them, we are judging.....but by Gods definition of right and wrong which means God is judging them - not that we are God but if we judge a man doing wrong by Gods outline then God also condemns that mans fruit....so likewise when we are judged we as believers want to be judged in a Godly manner just as we have judged....
Thou shall not judged least you be judged in the same manner
Now which of you believers want to know men by their fruits and also be judged in a Godly manner? that means Only God judges you..... and them
