Far too many Christians don’t judge. My experience has taught me that there is one Bible verse that all of America believes…those who call themselves Christians as well as those who do not. These two words have become the standard by which all Americans are to live their daily lives. These words are, “Judge Not…!” (Matthew 7:1)
I have previously written on this topic…way back in 2006. In the interest of brevity, take time to read Who Are You To Judge? when you get a chance.
Last week we did a ministry outreach at a concert called “The Gathering of the Jugaloes.” I am not an expert on the Jugaloes (WARNING: Link Contains Explicit Content). According to the Urban Dictionary a jugalo is an ill-mannered and impressionable idiot.
Jugalo is also the name given to the followers of the group Insane Clown Posse. Forgive me for appearing to be so judgmental, but my experience has taught me that most of the followers are “lost”, or at least non-Christians. This judgment is based on my own first-hand, eye-witness experience after having spent an entire afternoon engaging in dialogue with many of the “Jugs”.
Please stay with me…this will be short and painless.
After the weekend was completed, I posted on my Facebook page pictures of some of the “Jugs” I had a dialogue with. Visit my page and read how many are accusing me of being “judgmental” simply because I posted the pictures. The “Jugs” were, in fact, proud of their costumes.
The God-haters have programmed us “not to judge” while all they do is judge. The only thing that is considered wrong in America anymore is “judging.” Self-described Christians are the worst at accusing others of judging, while they themselves judge others for judging. (Are you following my logic here?)
Judging is a good thing…despite what Rachel Maddow says…despite what your pastor has told you…despite what your Facebook friends tell you. Judging behavior and appearance is a smart thing.
Hey folks, only fools don’t judge. (Go back and read the previous article I mentioned above…the one you hadn’t taken the time to open.) Judging can keep you safe. Judging can keep you from making bad decisions. Judging can keep your butt out of hell.
So here is a little quiz for you brain-dead, public-school graduates, and for Christians who attend a seeker-sensitive church. This is very simple. Even though you probably don’t know anyone who is featured in this quiz, it is necessary that you make a choice based only upon the information provided.
Ready? Your bigotry is about to be exposed. Here we go.
If you were looking for someone to babysit your precious 3 year old daughter, who would you choose?
Which person would you hire as your financial adviser?
Which person would you trust to be your spiritual adviser?
Which women would you select to be your child’s school teacher?
Which religion appears to be most peaceful?
Which picture best represents how a nation should treat babies?
How did you do? If you picked “A” every time, you show good judgment. If you picked “B”, you are a danger to society. Everybody judges, but only the guilty fear being judged.
Isaiah 59:14-15 “And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth has fallen in the streets and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no judgment.”
