We’ve all heard someone say, “Don’t judge me!” Should we follow that request? Or we’ve heard someone say, “Only God can judge me!” But is this true? What does the Bible say?
In this episode, Kenny defines the word “judge” and points out how the words of Jesus have often been manipulated. Some people claim that we should never judge, but the truth is judging is both appropriate and expected, as long as we judge righteously. There is an RIGHTEOUS form of judgment and there is an UNRIGHTEOUS form of judgment. It is essential that we know the difference.
