Judgemental quotes : Judging people quotes - Judging others quotes

Can Christians judge? When Christians lovingly and graciously present the gospel to unbelievers, a judgment is made about their standing with God. The Bible doesn't say not to judge but warns believers against making judgments in a hypocritical or condemning manner. (Matthew 7:1-5) Note the Lord's command to judge: Jesus stated, “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment” (John 7:24). Before we make judgment, we must make sure we are judging righteously from God’s Word and not relying on our own opinion.
When someone says we need to stop judging others, they've just judged us. So they're guilty of doing the very thing they tell us not to do. Those people who call for tolerance and quote “judge not” out of context are not using sound thinking. Often, built into the claim of “tolerance” is the concept that truth is determined by each individual, not by God, the absolute authority.
As Christians, we are called to judge righteously, and judging between right and wrong is something we do every day. But Scripture makes it clear there's one supreme Judge, the Lord God—He alone has the authority to determine right and wrong motives and behaviors. That’s why we must start with the Word of the supreme Judge when we lovingly make judgments.

Many people conclude that making judgments on anyone (especially coming from Christians) is wrong because the Bible says ”judge not” (Matthew 7:1).
