1 Corinthians 11
New King James Version (NKJV)

31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.

Grace and peace be unto you my brothers and sisters,

It is amazing and disturbing that you find so much judgement in the churches. It is certainly understandable that judgement is found in the world however; for those who proclaim to be in Christ and possess a judgmental attitude is a bit absurd. How could one who have received so much grace and forgiveness turn around and judge a brother or sister for the very actions that Jesus Christ has delivered them out of, and in some cases the deliverance process is ongoing. How does one who has a desire to judge the sin and struggles of another, do not understand that they have a greater obligation to extend the same compassion, forgiveness, and grace they have received? Even if the sin and struggles are not like what you or I struggles with, it does not negate the fact that we also have received compassion, forgiveness and God's grace. The above text declares,'For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged." In the context of this scripture it is a warning to those at Corinth regarding their participation in the Eucharist (Lord's Supper). In verse 28 is states," But let every man examine himself..." This word does not only apply regarding the Lord's Supper but it applies to the Lord's people. If we would examine ourselves then we would not have a need to examine others, in other words," For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged."

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

You know... It's really difficult to write an article about someone's judgement of someone else without also judging. :-) Something Jesus said that was absolutely profound (John 13:35) is that we would be known by our love (as opposed to our discipline). In a world full of managers were everyone wants things done tighter, the Christians are the ones to show a completely different concept of Love.
