“Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.”
—2 Thessalonians 3:6
“Be a witness, not a judge.”
–Seen on the message board outside of an apostate church
The churches are all about “judge not.”
But Christians are commanded to judge.
However, by the sounds of the apostate churches, “Judge not” (their favorite verse in the Bible) is their new, most important commandment.
In fact, “Judge not” is the first commandment of apostasy.
Which makes sense: if the pew-sitters judged with righteous judgment, the apostate churches, the wolves in the pulpit and the foundation for the dragon’s man of sin could not stand.
Even the world realizes that “Judge not” is one of the atheists’ favorite Bible verses. However, it’s lately also become one of the favorites in the congregation of the tares.
“Here we love instead of judge.”

Christians not only have the authority (of the Bible), they are commanded to judge.
The following are when a Christian is to judge.
not according to appearance [John 7:24]
in righteousness [John 7:24];
not to condemnation; [Luke 6:37]
fruit [Matthew 7:17-20]
doctrinal error [2 Thessalonians 3:6]
between the brethren [1 Corinthians 6:5]
in a spirit of meekneess [Galatians 6:1]
—CHRISTIANS and Judging: When, Where and How
IF it were true that the believer is to not judge, how are so many of the commandments of Jesus to be fulfilled? How are so many of the commandments of God to be carried out?
For instance, without judgment, how is the believer to avoid being “unequally yoked?”
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
—2 Corinthians 6:14
How is the believer to decide between good and evil without judgment?
Answer: he cannot, which indicates another reason the apostates discourage judgment in their churches. It also helps explain the complete and total lack of discernment in the churches.
How is the believer to carry out the command of 1 Corinthians 5:13 without judgment?
“Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.”
Answer: he cannot.
It is little wonder that the antichrist apostates have become the epicenter for suspending judgment.
IF judgment were exercised, the entire apostate jig would be up.
“Be a witness not a judge.”
Without sound judgment, what good is a witness? Will the witness even know what he’s seen?
Do not be deceived: believers are to exercise judgment.
When “no judging” becomes the rule, no judgment will be exercised in the churches.
And that is the point at which we have arrived.
It is totally by design.
“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
