Author, speaker and national talk show host Julie Roys asks a twofold question: Are Christians supposed to judge or not judge? And just what is the Christian standard?
Here are Julie Roys’ 5 biblically-based principles concerning judging:
It happened when I posted something to social media lamenting author Jen Hatmaker’s disastrous decision to affirm gay unions. It happened again when I criticized a Saturday Night Live writer for attacking Barron Trump, the 10-year-old son of the president. Truth is, it happens anytime I make a judgment about anything or anyone.
“Christians are not to pass judgments, only state the truths,” one person commented.
“Christ taught us to LOVE EVERYONE. Judgments are for our father in heaven, not us,” said another.
And ironically, someone even stated, “You obviously are not a Christian because Jesus told us not to judge.”
