“Don’t Judge”

Matthew 7:1 “Don’t judge, so that you won’t be judged.”

This is a highly abused scripture. Christ was telling people not to judge a brother when you yourself are guilty of that very same sin. Read Matthew 7:2-5. If judging were always wrong then Moses and the Kings of Israel could not have judged the people. Also we would not have John 7:24 which says

“Don’t judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”

If judging were wrong then how could one judge righteously? Telling people not to judge is accusing them of the sin being discussed.
