What Does “Judge Not, That You Be Not Judged” Mean to You?


One of the trickiest of all Scriptural mandates is the one that admonishes us not to judge others. It is often thrown in the faces of Christians who simply seek to distinguish between right and wrong actions. The Biblical exhortation would seem to refer, rather, to making an ultimate judgment with regard to another person’s eternal destiny. Or, does it mean that we should put up and shut up when it comes to anything and everything other people do? How do you ensure that you are carefully judging actions, and not the individuals who perform them? Share your take on this Wednesday.

    I don’t think this is the way to get to the truth of scripture, the way this was handled in this program. Isn’t this the VERY Protestant way of looking at scripture–how do YOU interpret it? This program was encouraging private interpretation, which is not the Catholic way of looking at the Bible.


    • Richard,

      Thanks for listening to the show and for offering your most welcome insights. We would love to hear how you would interpret the passage on not judging others. Please do let us know. God bless you!


  2. Lev 19:15 says to judge your neighbor fairly. How does that stack up against what Jesus said?

    If you use a concordance you can look up all the instances of “judge” and see what the range of bible verses is. What are you doing up so late?

    I did a google search on “bible judge not” and got something like 31 bible verses. Perhaps you should consider more preparation for your show.


    • Thanks so much, Richard. We always appreciate it when wise people point things like this out to us. We’re always open to learning from people like you. Please don’t ever hesitate to share your input in the future. And please pray for us if you would be so kind. God bless you!
