Is Judging in the Bible?
Judging IS in the Bible. The verse that the world twists the most is "judge not lest you be judged". The world, that is all who are unsaved whether they attend a local church or not, loves this verse because it makes them feel good about about themselves. Jesus did not say to the woman caught in adultery, "you are fine where you are" in your adultery. He did not say to Zacchaeus the thieving, cheating, extortioner of a tax collector that "you are fine where you are" in sin. NO! He told them to "go sin no more" and that salvation has only come to that person because he repented and turned to Christ.
Jesus condemned the pharisees for their hypocritical, hence their unrighteous, ungodly judgment. Jesus commanded righteous judgment, and righteous judgment alone.
