Misused Verses In The Bible (Week 9): “Judging Others”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Matthew 7:1

Redemption Bible Church is led by Jason Mayhall as part of the “Misused Verses in the Bible” sermon series. This week, we explore Matthew 7:1, which says, “Judge not, that you be not judged.” Pastor Jason touches on how we should treat one another, specifically how important it is to not be characterized by a judgmental attitude. Also, when one feels compelled to criticize another, to consider whether it is to try to restore a relationship or to make someone feel bad? At the other end of the spectrum, how is today’s society prioritizes unity and fellowship over conflict and criticism is also not the healthiest attitude. Let us consider how one needs to address the sin in his or her own soul, and how a member of a community should look at these opportunities to help.

The Christian life is not immune to trouble. In the Christian life, it is not “if” but “when” you begin suffering you may be tempted to question the goodness of God.
