Judgements: Rash or Righteous
"Judge not, lest you be judged" is one of the most widely quoted verses in the Bible. However, people often miss its entire point. The Bible does not forbid making judgments. On the contrary, a wise Christian shows discernment and knows how to judge situations, behaviors, and even people according to God's Word.
In this booklet Lou Priolo tackles this difficult issue, making the distinction between rash, sinful judgments and righteous, godly judgments. He identifies when we should and should not judge, and with Scripture as a constant guide, he describes different forms of rash judgments and offers ten tactics to avoid making them.
You will learn how to judge, using God's standards instead of your own, and will come away with two helpful worksheets you can use to test your own judgments.
The Resources for Biblical Living booklet series addresses a wide range of practical life issues in a straightforward, down-to-earth, and most of all, biblical manner.
"Lou Priolo brings over two decades of counseling experience, a deep knowledge of Scripture, and a love for God's people to his writing. You'll find these little booklets very helpful. . . . I heartily recommend them."
