 The title of the sermon today is “DON’T JUDGE ME!!!”
- You’ll constantly hear people in this world today saying: “Don’t judge.”
- “We shouldn’t judge others. Only God can judge.”
- “No one can judge me but God. Only God can judge me.” Do you know where this comes from?
- It’s not the Bible. I’ll show you today that it’s definitely NOT the Bible.
- It appears that many people today got this from rappers in the 90’s. And then they spread it like parrots.
They say, “Hey, we don’t judge others. 2pac says so.”
- Isn’t that a great source of information? RAPPERS? Really?
- These are the same people who influence teenagers to drink, do drugs, and murder people.
- Well, today, let’s settle this once and for all. Are we to judge others or not?
- Are we to judge anything in this world? Let’s see what the Scriptures actually say.
There are 8 words related to judging within the King James Bible:
- 1) judge, 2) judged, 3) judges, 4) judgest, 5) judgeth, 6) judging, 7) judgment, 8) judgments
- When you search the Scriptures for those words, you find 758 matches in 674 verses.
- This is about 40 pages of Scriptures that include words about judging.
- So, JUDGING is a HUGE topic within the Bible. This means we need to understand this completely.
Obviously, I can’t go through all 674 Scriptures in this sermon.
- We usually cover 100 or so verses in a sermon in about 50 slides.
- Here’s where all the Scriptures are for judging within the King James Bible by book of the Bible:
- Notice that there’s only 10 books of the Bible out of 66 total books that don’t have one of the 8 words related to judge.
- 56 out of 66 books of the Bible speak to JUDGING. Psalms has the most verse with 94.
- Ezekiel is next with 54. Isaiah is third with 49. Deuteronomy is fourth with 40. Then Job with 27.
- Let’s start out in Amos Chapter 5 for this sermon today.
 Amos 5:14-15 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. 15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
- The Lord God ALMIGHTY commands us to seek good, and not evil, that we may live.
- Now, make sure you understand that commandment from God. Listen to this again:
- “SEEK GOOD, AND NOT EVIL, THAT YE MAY LIVE.”
- Now, you tell me how you’re going to do that without judging. How will you seek good and not evil?
- When you meet someone, won’t you have to judge to see if that person is following God or not?
Here’s another example. Let’s say you’re looking for a church, and you visit this church.
- You will have to make a judgement on whether this is the church you want to be at or not.
- How are you going to judge this church? Will you judge this church according to your own standards?
- Or, will you judge this church according to the standards within the Bible?
- Will you want things in this church that are good for you in your flesh?
- Or, will you want things in this church that are good for God? You will make a judgement.
Every single day we are judging everything around us. This is how God made us. We must be judges.
- We must be judging between things. “Do I do this, or do I do that? Which direction am I going today?”
- “Will I eat this for breakfast, or will I eat that for breakfast?”
- The directions and paths we take in life are based on our judgements that we make. Are they not?
- But yet, you get people saying: “Don’t judge. Don’t judge me. Don’t judge this. Don’t judge that.”
- “DON’T JUDGE ANYTHING.” Where in the world do the Scriptures say any of these things?
I’ll show you in a little while where people “THINK” this is within the Scriptures, but they would be wrong.
- How will we choose to hate the evil and love the good without judgment?
- We MUST judge according to the Bible. Look at verse 15 right there in Amos Chapter 5.
- “Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate.”
- God commands this so that He will be good to us.
If my neighbor is doing cocaine and he asks me to come over and do cocaine with him, what do I do?
- “ESTABLISH JUDGEMENT IN THE GATE!!!” What would I use to make my decision?
- Would I just not judge the situation at all and go do the cocaine and drugs?
- “Well, God says to love your neighbor, and I shouldn’t reject my neighbor. I will go do the cocaine.”
- Is that the right thing to do? Is that a good judgment? Am I doing the right thing?
Many people in this world, I would even say most in this country today, would say I should go do the drugs.
- I laugh at that decision, but people will say these things today. Their judgement is way off.
- They act as if they aren’t judging the situation, but they are judging too.
- The ones that say, “Don’t judge me” are actually making a judgement when they say this.
- To make a good judgment, we would use the Scriptures correctly.
- We do not love our neighbors by participating in evil acts such as doing drugs.
 1 Thessalonians 5:6-8 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
- The Bible commands us 11 times in the New Testament to be sober. Drugs don’t lead us to be sober.
- So, we would judge the situation correctly, and we would say no to drugs.
- God commands us to ESTABLISH JUDGEMENT. In other words, we must judge correctly.
- If we do not judge correctly and make the right decision, we will sin against God Almighty.
We were created by God to be judges. This is how we live each and every day. Every one of us judges constantly.
- This is reality. But yet, what do people say: “I don’t judge anyone or anything. God is the judge.”
- Well, God is “THE” judge, but obviously, we are judges too. We judge all throughout the day.
- Now, we should judge righteously. How do we do that?
- We use the Scriptures to judge righteous judgement.
 John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
- We are to not judge according to the appearance.
- In other words, don’t judge someone by their outward appearance.
- If someone comes into church wearing old clothing, would you judge them as not worthy to be here?
- Don’t judge after the flesh. We are to judge according to the Scriptures.
- If someone is wearing old clothing, we wouldn’t say: “You aren’t welcome in church here.”
- That would be idiotic and foolish because God says so. This wouldn’t be righteous judgement.
- God doesn’t have any law against wearing old clothing in church.
So, we use God’s laws to judge. This is called righteous judgement.
- We are judging right when use God’s judgement. He’s already judged all these things for us.
- When we follow His prior judgement, then we know we are judging right. We have righteous judgement.
- For example, a sodomite or homosexual might come into church and be proud of his sexual orientation.
- I would use the Bible to judge righteous judgement and kick the homosexual out of the church.
 Deuteronomy 23:17-18 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. 18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
- When I use the Scriptures to make a judgement, I am judging righteously.
- I am not judging according to the flesh but according to the SPIRIT OF GOD which is in the Scriptures.
- God hates sodomites. He says they are an abomination,
- If a whore comes into the church, that whore will be kicked out too.
- But the so-called “Christian” churches of today would NEVER do anything like that. Why?
- They think their lack of judgement, which is a judgement in itself, is more righteous than the HOLY GOD.
 Amos 5:24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
- God COMMANDS us to judge righteously. Do you understand what that means?
- God wants us to judge everything according to His words so that we do the right things.
 Deuteronomy 1:16-17 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. 17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.
- We are to judge righteously between EVERY MAN and HIS BROTHER and THE STRANGER with him.
- We are not to respect persons in judgment.
- “Oh, well, he’s the President of the United States so he must be doing right.”
- “Oh, well, he’s a pastor of a mega church so he must be doing right.”
- “She’s popular with all the women in the church so she must be doing right.”
- “Oh, well, she’s the wife of the pastor so I know she’s doing the right thing.”
Is this how we’re supposed to judge? NO. N-O. NO. We do not respect persons.
- If you respect persons in judgement, you will make bad judgements. Understand this.
- The evil churches, media, and people everywhere respect persons, and they make very bad decisions.
- For example, when your employer mandates the Covid vaccine, you have to make a decision.
- You must judge the matter. What decision are you going to make? God gives you the choice.
God says that He owns your body. He’s purchased you at a price. You are His now.
- He says that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is God.
- God says to put all your trust in Him and not in doctors or medicine. He commands this.
- So, what will you do? Will you take the Covid vaccine even though it was only possible through abortion?
- Will you cower over to the so-called “higher powers” even though there is no power higher than God?
- Will you fall down before the feet of men and women and do whatever they tell you to do?
- Or, will you stand up for God by judging righteous judgement. Will you say no to drugs or not?
- This is called judging the situation. Use the Scriptures to make your judgement.
 Proverbs 31:9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
- Don’t open your mouth if you can’t judge righteously.
- If you don’t know the Scriptures, you better get to work.
- How much time are you putting into the Scriptures? Are you making good judgements each day?
- “Let’s see. Do I watch TV, or do I study the Bible?” That’s a judgement.
- “Let’s see. Do I go to work today, or do I depend on unemployment?”
 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
- If you will not work, you shouldn’t eat. God says so. This is righteous judgement.
- So, when our government gives out free money to people who won’t work, this is horrible judgement.
- This goes directly against the Scriptures, which are providing us with righteous judgement.
- We use the Scriptures to judge, make good decisions, and take the right paths.
If you know the Scriptures, you can make the right judgements. When you know the Scriptures, open your mouth.
- JUDGE RIGHTEOUSLY Psalm Chapter 31 says. Plead for the right things. Go against the wrong things.
- When someone tempts you to do something wrong, GO AGAINST IT.
- When your employer tempts you to go against God, you go against them. God will be on your side.
- You aren’t alone. Your employer might make you feel that you’re alone, but you aren’t alone.
- When someone attempts to force you to do wrong, OPEN YOUR MOUTH and judge righteously.
But yet, these evil and self-proclaimed “Christians” will tell you not to judge. They say, “Don’t judge anyone.”
- They say, “Don’t judge anything.” This is pure evil coming from these very foolish people.
- The entire Bible from front to back teaches you to judge all things righteously, which is spiritually.
- The Bible is spiritual. We use the Bible and the Spirit of God to judge all things correctly.
 1 Corinthians 2:11-12 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
 1 Corinthians 2:13-14 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
 1 Corinthians 2:15-16 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
- Make sure you see and understand verse 15 right there. We judge all things spiritually.
- And we can’t do that without the Spirit of God. And how do we get the Spirit of God?
- We simply put all of our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and His works and His words. We have faith in Him.
- We KNOW 100% for sure that what God says is RIGHT. We know that sodomites are an abomination.
- Verse 15 says: “But he that is spiritual JUDGETH ALL THINGS.”
This means you are judging things RIGHT when you are spiritual.
- And we choose whether to be spiritual or fleshly in all these judgements.
- If we follow the word of God in our judgements, we are making spiritual judgements.
- And these judgements will be right. We will make the right decisions when we use God’s words.
- And no one will be able to say CORRECTLY that we made the wrong decision.
- “Yet he himself is judged of no man.” We don’t judge through our wisdom but through God’s wisdom.
- When we use God’s wisdom, there’s no way that we’ll be wrong in our judgement. He is never wrong.
 2 Samuel 14:17 Then thine handmaid said, The word of my lord the king shall now be comfortable: for as an angel of God, so is my lord the king to discern good and bad: therefore the LORD thy God will be with thee.
- We must discern or distinguish between good and bad. Every single day we MUST do this.
- To go down the right paths in your life, you must use the WORD OF GOD to make your choices.
- If you don’t, you will go down the wrong paths. This is why it’s so evil for churches to preach not to judge.
- It’s wicked, evil, and sickening because they go directly against the word of God.
- Imagine if we taught our children not to judge anything. “Just join in with anything and everything.”
- They will never learn the difference between right and wrong. WOW, THIS IS EVIL.
- And people make the judgement to continue supporting churches who teach evil and wicked things.
- Why? Because they have no root in the word of God.
For example, I don’t care what anyone thinks of this sermon. I know what I’m preaching is right.
- How do I know this? It’s not coming through my own wisdom. It’s coming from the Scriptures.
- Am I interpreting all of these Scriptures incorrectly. NO. They are very clear.
- WE MUST have the ability to discern between good and bad. God gives us this ability through HIM.
 1 Kings 3:5-6 In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee. 6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
- God says to Solomon: “Ask what I shall give thee.” He wants to know what Solomon wants.
- Let’s say God came to you right now and says, “Ask for whatever you want, and I will give it to you.”
- What would you ask for? A new home? A new car? Win the lottery?
- More people at church? A better understanding of the Scriptures? Eternal life?
- Would you ask God to be one of the 24 elders around his throne? A good education? A wife? A husband?
- A child? More money? A promotion? What would it be? Deep down inside, what do you really want?
 1 Kings 3:7-8 And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in. 8 And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
 1 Kings 3:9-10 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? 10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.
- Solomon asks for an understanding heart to JUDGE THE PEOPLE.
- He asks for the ability to discern between good and bad. This is called judgement.
- Solomon could have asked for anything. He asks for the ability to judge righteously.
- The false churches today teach you not to judge anything, but God is pleased with Solomon.
- God wants you to JUDGE ALL THINGS righteously.
- Not with fleshly judgement but with spiritual judgement. And God wants this from all of us.
- Do you want this more than anything? Solomon did. And God rewarded Solomon for wanting this.
 1 Kings 3:11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
 1 Kings 3:12-13 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. 13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.
- God wants us to JUDGE. God wants to give us the understanding to judge rightly.
- Do you want that? Do you know what that will do for you? You will always go the right direction.
- You will ALWAYS make the right decisions. You will always be walking with God.
- There’s nothing better than that. When we make bad decisions, we go away from God and His path.
- You should want nothing more than to walk with God by making right judgements.
 Proverbs 28:5 Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
- Many so-called church leaders hate much of the Bible. They don’t like God’s judgement upon people.
- They don’t like that God flooded the earth and killed everyone on earth but 8 people.
- They don’t like that God killed all the firstborn of Egypt at the Passover.
- They don’t like that God commands the Israelites to kill all of their enemies including young, old, women, and children.
- They don’t like that God hates sodomites. They don’t like that God HATES people and REJECTS people.
They don’t like that God CASTS people into hell for eternal torment.
- There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. They don’t like God’s judgement.
- They believe their judgement is more righteous than God’s judgement. Why is that?
- That Scripture tells us right there. “Evil men understand not judgment.”
- This is why all of these false churches around here preach and teach: “DON’T JUDGE.”
- They say, “Our church is a judgement free zone.” Again, evil men do not understand judgment.
- But they that seek the Lord understand all things. God will teach us all things.
- But these so-called “Christian” churches say there is no judgement within their churches.
 1 Corinthians 5:11-13 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
- The Holy Spirit says, “Do not ye JUDGE them that are within?” Hey, we are to judge each other.
- We are to help each other. That’s what righteous judgement leads to.
- If you don’t like to be judged, why is that? Why would you not like to be judged? Think about it.
- “DON’T JUDGE ME!!!” Why? “Because I must be doing wrong, and I know that I’m doing wrong.”
- This is why people are saying these things. Righteous judgement will help us to correct mistakes.
But evil people don’t want to be judged, and they don’t want to correct anything.
- Hey, listen, I’ve messed up a lot in my life. But now I am trying to do things the right way.
- My past is over. God has forgiven me of my past sins. Now, I’m going to do right as much as I can.
- You can judge me all you want. I want to do things right. If I’m doing wrong, I want to correct it.
- I need your help. I need you to judge what I preach according to the Scriptures.
 1 Corinthians 6:1-3 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
- God says, “You can’t judge the smallest matters within the church?” Hey, you should be ashamed.
- Do the churches throughout this country not read the Bible at all? They will be ashamed.
- “Did you not know that the saints shall JUDGE THE WORLD?”
- These people who say, “Don’t judge,” are simply amazing to me. They act as if they know the Bible.
- But the Bible proves how foolish they truly are. And yes, I am judging those people righteously.
 1 Corinthians 6:4-5 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
- It’s shameful to not be able to judge righteously. We have all the Scriptures available to us today.
- Is there not a wise man among us that we can judge rightly?
- Judgement free zones in these false churches are absolutely ignorant.
There are churches all throughout this country that say they are judgement free zones.
- They say, “There is a place that calls itself the judgment free zone because no one is permitted to judge others, be prideful, or feel ostracized.”
- “Everyone is welcome and everyone belongs.”
- Seriously, they say: “We do not allow judging others or ourselves.”
- They say, “We are all equally loved by God.” This isn’t true either.
- The people who preach these things should tell others what they really are and stop acting as if they represent the God of the Bible.
- They make all of these things up with no Scripture to back up their idiotic statements.
 Micah 3:1 And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?
- We are to know judgment. We MUST know the difference in right and wrong.
- We use the Scriptures to know these differences. For example, is it right for a man to have long hair?
- No, it goes against nature. It goes against how God made men and women. The Bible says so.
- Is it right for a man to murder another man? No, it’s not okay.
- Is it right for a man and a woman to have a sexual relationship outside of marriage? No, it’s not okay.
It is right for you to steal from someone else in any way, shape, or form? No, it’s not okay.
- Is it a good thing for you to attend a church that can’t get the Gospel of Jesus Christ right? No, it’s not.
- People will say, “But I went to church so it must be a good thing.”
- No, it’s very bad if you go to a false church and support that church who is preaching against the true God.
- God HATES the worship of a false God.
- If a church preaches works to be saved, you need to get out of there. This is called righteous judgement.
 1 Corinthians 10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
- I want wise men to judge what I say here in church. I want people to judge me who know the Scriptures.
- I could care less how others judge me who don’t know the Scriptures at all.
- That’s a command: “JUDGE YE WHAT I SAY.” Am I speaking right or wrong? JUDGE.
- Do you see what the false churches set people up to do? You will receive all the false doctrine they teach.
- Why? Because you can’t judge them as wrong because you’re in a judgement free zone.
Not here at this church. This is church is an ALL JUDGEMENT ZONE. That’s Scriptural. We judge here.
- Here? WE JUDGE ALL THINGS. We are not a judgement free FUN ZONE here.
- We’re going to use the Scriptures to find the truth and produce WISE MEN here.
- We will not produce fools and idiots here as these judgement free zones are producing.
- They want everyone to follow after their ways and they go the wrong way because they don’t judge.
- Again, listen, WE MUST BE JUDGES OF ALL THINGS. We must judge righteously.
 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
- When you know something is good according to the Scriptures, HOLD FAST THAT WHICH IS GOOD.
- Grab it fast. Hold onto it. Don’t let it go. This would be the word of God and His judgment.
- His judgement is good and righteous. Follow after His ways, and you will judge rightly.
- We must prove all things. We must judge all things. Why? So we don’t fall for everything else.
- If we never judge, we’ll just allow all the evil into our lives. We’ll become greater sinners.
 Job 34:4 Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.
- Do you see how many Scriptures teach us to judge? The Bible is filled with these Scriptures.
- So, what does that tell you about all of these people who say: “DON’T JUDGE ME?”
- What does that tell you about all the churches? They want anything and everything to be good.
- These churches are led by evil and wicked men and women who want to do whatever they want.
If they invite others in who want to do whatever they want too, then all will be good.
- Everyone will just be doing whatever they want and that’s fun. They say, “This is where you want to be.”
- Hey, not me. I don’t want to be surrounded by people who want to go up against God.
- I don’t want to get caught up in that. I want to get as far away as possible from those people.
- This is called good judgement. WE MUST KNOW AMONG OURSELVES WHAT IS GOOD.
- Let us choose to us judgement. This is what the Bible actually teaches us.
I want to give you a scenario, and I want you to tell me what you would do in this situation.
- Let’s say one of the original 12 disciples of Jesus Christ was walking around on this earth right now.
- Let’s say it’s Peter. Let’s say Peter doesn’t want to be around us because we aren’t physical Jews.
- He won’t even eat with us because we’re not physical Jews. He did this because he fears the Jews.
- Peter is going away from the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and acting as if only Jews can be saved.
He is beginning to fall back into a works based salvation. But hey, this man is an original disciple.
- He is to be respected, right? Is that what the Bible teaches us?
- Does the Bible say we shouldn’t question Peter? Does the Bible say that we shouldn’t rebuke Peter?
- What would you do? What type of judgement would you make in this situation?
- Well, the Bible gives us this exact scenario and let’s see what happens.
 Galatians 2:11-12 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. 12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
- Paul judged correctly. Paul judged right. He didn’t respect persons. He didn’t care who Peter was.
- HE WITHSTOOD HIM TO THE FACE. Straight to the face. He didn’t go behind his back.
- Face to face. Paul blamed Peter to his face.
- We use the Scriptures to judge. We don’t base our judgement on who the person is.
- Who cares if it’s Peter? Who cares if it’s Abraham? WRONG IS WRONG. Understand this.
- Now, make sure you have it right according to the Scriptures before you go after someone.
For example, I will go after Franklin Graham and preach against him because is a false preacher.
- He preaches a false gospel just as his dad did.
- I will go after Southeast Christian Church because they teach a works based salvation.
- I will not support Shelby Christian Church because they have a false gospel.
- I will preach against the Southern Baptist Convention because they’ve changed the truth of the gospel into a lie.
- I will go straight FACE TO FACE. I don’t fear them at all. They preach against the GRACE OF GOD.
- This is exactly what Peter started to do here. He was taking others away from the truth with him.
 Galatians 2:13-14 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. 14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
- Now, did Paul judge righteously here? Did Paul do the right thing?
- He went up against one of the disciples who lived with Jesus Christ and taught with Jesus Christ.
- YES, HE DID THE RIGHT THING. He judged Peter righteously. He preached against Peter to his face.
 Galatians 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
- Paul rebuked Peter. Peter was going the wrong way and taking other people with him.
- Don’t frustrate the grace of God. When people do this, they add works to salvation.
- Salvation is not of works. When people do this, we are to judge this, rebuke this, correct this immediately.
 Philippians 1:9-11 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
- When Paul judged Peter, this was loving towards Peter and all the others.
- Paul didn’t do this in private. He rebuked Peter in front of everyone. This is how you do it.
- Don’t preach a false gospel, and you won’t be judged. Stay on track, and you won’t be judged.
- Preach a false gospel, though, and I will say something. And all true Christians should say something.
“Your love may ABOUND yet more and more in knowledge and in ALL JUDGMENT.”
- God wants us to approve of things that are EXCELLENT. His words are excellent. Jesus Christ is excellent.
- He doesn’t want us approving of things that are evil and wicked. God hates evil and wickedness.
- We are to reject those things and hate those things. If it’s evil according to God’s word, REJECT IT.
- Most people in this world and in churches today can’t understand what I’m preaching.
- This is very simple. Reject the evil. Love the good. You must know what is evil and what is good.
For example, the King James Bible is good. Corrupted versions are evil.
- And you might say: “All Bible versions say and mean the same thing.”
- If you truly believe that, you re foolish. This is my righteous judgement of you.
- If you don’t believe me, open the different versions and compare them to the King James Bible.
- They are NOTHING alike in most of the Scriptures. They say and mean different things.
- Is this one example not good enough for you to understand that all Bible versions are not the same?
- The New American Standard Bible or NASB tells us that people deceived God.
- God cannot be deceived, but the NASB says that He can. There are hundreds of examples like this.
- Now, with just these 2 examples you should be able to make a righteous judgement of the NASB.
- You should be able to say: “I am never using an NSAB ever again.”
- “I know they don’t say and mean the same thing.” Now, am I lying to you?
- There’s the proof right there. If you know the Scriptures, you’ll know that God takes away life.
- But the NASB says: “Yet God does not take away life.” Is this really the word of God? No, it’s not.
- Let me show you the word of God.
 Exodus 22:24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
- Does God take away life there? YES HE DOES.
 Deuteronomy 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
 1 Samuel 2:6 The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.
- The King James Bible is very clear and doesn’t contradict itself like the NASB.
- You can show similar examples and hundreds of them for all the other modern Bible versions.
- So, with that said, what’s your judgement of what I’m preaching right now?
- Am I lying to you? If so, why don’t you show me? I showed you Scriptures with proof.
- Are those not enough?
- These Scriptures say the exact opposite. Now, do they say and mean the same thing?
- Will you be A RIGHTEOUS JUDGE or will you say: “I’m not judging today. Judgement free zone.”
- Will you say, “Josh, you’re just trying to cause division in the church.”
- WRONG. I am trying to bring God’s people together with the actual words of the Bible.
- I’m judging righteous judgement and showing you the truth.
 Ephesians 4:12-14 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
- You MUST learn to use the Scriptures to judge rightly. If not, you will be thrown around.
- This is why God teaches us to JUDGE. But the churches say, “Don’t judge.” WRONG.
- Why would they be saying these things? WAKE UP PEOPLE. They are deceiving you.
- They are tossing you around. You won’t be tossed around if you’re built upon the ROCK.
- No one will ever convince me that I’m saved some other way but BELEIVING ON JESUS CHRIST.
- You will never change my mind on that. NEVER. No chance. I will judge salvation properly.
- I will not be thrown around anymore. I’ve had enough of that. NO MORE. The Scriptures are a ROCK.
- They will not be moved. They will never fade away. They allow me to judge righteously.
 Hebrews 5:13-14 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
- We’ve got to grow up. We can’t fall for all of this trash in churches and the world today.
- If you take the Scriptures and use them to discern both good and evil, you are growing up.
- You must have your senses exercises to discern both good and evil. You must be a JUDGE of things.
People are right when they say, “GOD WILL JUDGE ME.” Yes, He will judge you.
- How will He judge you? He won’t judge you according to some laws He hasn’t already given you.
- People act as if God will judge them as good when they know they’re doing wrong.
- They act as if there’s some unknown laws that God hasn’t given to us that He will judge us by.
- Those things don’t exist. God will judge you according to His words in the Bible.
- You can know how God will be judging you. All of His rules are in the Bible. This is why it’s so important.
- YOU MUST KNOW HIS RULES BECAUSE HE JUDGES BY THESE RULES.
- And He wants you to judge by these same rules.
 Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
- This is the Scripture that everyone wants to use. They act as if Jesus Christ tells you not to judge anything.
- If this were true, obviously, the Bible would contradict itself. The Bible commands us to judge.
- We will be judged by the word of God so we are to judge by the word of God.
- Don’t judge in any other way. Don’t forget to finish reading the Scriptures. Understand them.
- Don’t just fall for someone going: “JUDGE NOT, THAT YE BE NOT JUDGED.”
- How in the world are you going to live your life without judging anything? You won’t make it.
- That’s not what Jesus Christ means, and you know it isn’t. You must keep reading the Scriptures.
 Matthew 7:2-3 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
- Jesus Christ is talking about judging with unrighteous judgement. Don’t judge by the flesh.
- Judge by the SPIRIT. Use spiritual things to judge. Don’t add things to the Bible and act like it’s a rule.
- Don’t tell others that cutting you hair will send you to hell. That’s a lie.
- Don’t tell others that wearing a bracelet will send you to hell. That’s a lie.
- Don’t teach women that wearing pants will send them to hell. That’s a lie.
- Don’t teach young men that facial hair will send them to hell. That’s a lie.
- Don’t judge people for eating meat. Don’t judge people for not eating meat.
“Thou shalt not eat meat” is not a law within the Bible for you.
- Don’t make up rules and judge others by your man-made rules.
- Don’t go overboard with the rules that aren’t there and start judging others unrighteously.
- “Well, they don’t do everything exactly like us so they must be bad people.” No, stop judging in that way.
- Now, if they are directly going against the word of God, then you can judge righteous judgement.
- Don’t be teaching others to not do things that you doing yourself.
 Matthew 7:4-5 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
- Don’t be a hypocrite. If you’re doing something wrong, don’t try to judge your brother and help him.
- You can’t even help yourself. Once you get it right, then you can help your brother.
- Righteous judgement consists of using the Bible. You could go to your brother and say:
- “I noticed you’ve been doing this against the Bible. I have been too.”
- “Let’s work together and get this right. Let’s use the Bible and get this right. Let’s stop doing that.”
- Or, get it fixed on your own so you then have the experience to help your brother.
- You’ll know how to get it fixed. USE THE SCRIPTURES.
 Romans 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
 Romans 2:2-3 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. 3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
- God’s law is the judgement. He’s already given us His laws. We know what He wants IF we study.
- We are to use His laws to judge between ourselves and to make our own decisions.
- When you judge someone else for doing wrong and you’re doing the same thing, you condemn yourself.
- You’re saying that God’s law is good. You won’t escape the judgement of God.
- Ignoring your own sin won’t stop God from judging you for that sin.
- If you won’t judge yourself, you’ll never get things fixed. But churches teach to not judge yourself.
- They don’t want you to feel any shame for what you’ve done. If not, you’ll just keep doing these things.
- Not good. Don’t listen to lying false preachers. Use good judgment.
 Leviticus 18:4-5 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God. 5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.
- Walk in the judgements of God. This means constantly and every second of every day.
- If you will walk in the judgements of God, you shall live. When you don’t, you sin.
- Sin leads to death. God doesn’t want you breaking His laws because it’s not good for you.
 1 Samuel 7:15 And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life.
- Did God say, “Samuel, you shouldn’t judge. Don’t you judge anyone or anything, Samuel?”
- Is that what God said? We have an entire book of the Bible named JUDGES. God appointed judges.
- I hope I’ve given you enough Scripture today to show you what the Bible teaches about judgement.
- Don’t judge people UNRIGHTEOUSLY, but judge righteous judgement in ALL THINGS.
You should judge everything that you do. “Is this right? Is this wrong?” If it’s wrong, I’m not doing it.
- If it’s right, I’m doing it. And I’m going to focus on doing more right things.
- Right and wrong come from God’s words. If it goes against God, it’s wrong.
The world doesn’t define right and wrong for you. GOD DOES.
- For example, this idiotic world tells you it’s okay to change your God-given gender. WRONG.
- This doesn’t synch up with God and His words. It’s not okay to mutilate your body that God gave you.
If something goes with God’s words, it’s right. Remember, JUDGE ALL THINGS RIGHTEOUSLY.
- This means your judgement must align with God’s words to be right.
- It’s not your own wisdom that decides right and wrong. It’s God who decides right and wrong.
- He’s already judged right and wrong, and He gives all of those judgements to us within His words.
- USE HIS WORDS TO JUDGE ALL THINGS.
Saying, “Don’t judge me,” over and over again won’t help you escape the judgement of God.
- Putting “JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE” on the outside of your so-called “church” won’t help you escape the judgment of God.
- The words of the Bible will NEVER PASS AWAY. They won’t change. His law is here for our judgement.
- He gave us all of these words to help us judge the right things.
- We are to seek good, and not evil. We must know the difference between good and evil.
- We MUST establish GOOD AND RIGHTEOUS judgement. We do not want evil judgement here.
- We want to judge things according to God’s words. His words are good and right.
