DO NOT JUDGE OR YOU TOO WILL BE JUDGED – PART 2: PRINCIPLES OF DISCERNMENT

*

He who gives an answer before he hears,

It is folly and shame to him. -Proverbs 18:13

*

We as Christ’s representatives have bought into the world’s values and its insistence that individuals should never challenge the private beliefs of others, whether outside the church or in it. Many believe that we have no right to judge anyone’s lifestyle or beliefs. We have lost the ability to judge the world because we have lost the ability to judge ourselves.

Who Are You to Judge? is a book about discernment: the ability to distinguish the false from the true; or better, the false from the half true. Our responsibility as members of the church is to distinguish biblical Christianity from the counterfeit spirituality and values of today’s world.

God calls us to knowledge — but also beyond knowledge to wisdom. This book is a treasure of biblical wisdom. It will equip the reader with desperately needed discernment for our time. — Dr. R.C. Sproul, Chairman and President, Ligonier Ministries

*

Sound principles of discernment:

  • We have no right to judge others unless we evaluate ourselves first
  • We must judge facts and not presumptions
  • We must judge Biblical issues, not preferences
