Reply re judging

A reply to a man who believes we are called to judge. The last thing I desire is to go back and forth over the issue of judging. I set the man free to what he believes, which I believe is working by law not relationship by use scripture outside of a relationship. It is clear we will all die because we have the sin of Satan, which is pride, that manifests through putting ourselves up as a judge. Father God put all the sin judgment of man on Jesus, hence we can have a living relationship with him. Yes there are statements we are called to make which are judgments, but I will stress we are only to be used to say such things as a channel of the Godhead. Jesus only said and did what the Father told him, he lived while on earth under total submission as a man to the Godhead. To judge is to condemn and reject. We can all quote verses, if not directed by the Holy Spirit to do so, it is using scripture as law and Jesus is the end of the law for righteousness. If not careful we can all accuse each other when making statements which are judgments. There are verses like Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Here is another verse. Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. How? We condemn by not condemning back. It is like when a person shouts, the other to either whisper or say nothing leaves the shouting person naked. The Word says, Judge not. Matthew 7:1. The key is when judgment has to be made, if I am to be used to make it, in my heart I need to make sure do not judge them. I have all the seeds of destruction in me that are in all mankind, and it is only Father God's grace they have not born that fruit. There is only one sin, disobedience, all the rest is fruit. What causes the sin of disobedience to manifest is PRIDE. Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Yesterday I put on face book, Found myself being annoyed this morning that the bank had sent a letter to our house address and not to the Post Office Box. A thought immediately followed, to be annoyed is because you have judged. Judging is what destroys peace. Peace and judging do not live in the same room. I covet peace hence judging has to go full stop. Thou will keep him in perfect peace who's mind is stayed on Jesus. What would happen when I come across a situation that scripture tells me is off the wall. Simple answer, pray, pray, pray till I know the mind of Christ and only speak what he says, with a heart full of love and compassion. I believe the correct way to deal with a person according to Matthew18:15 to 20 is to go to them and tell them you love them, but that you do not agree with what they are doing, and if they continue doing that, these are the consequences, and offer help them. If they refuse take one or 2 more and all say the same, if they refuse that tell all they fellowship with to go and say the same, if they refuse that, they will leave because they have rejected the love. They have been put out of the church through love, not law. These days this is where I have arrived at, have found it wins more for Christ than where I once walked and believed because before I did and said all thing out of law, now it is out of relationship with the Godhead and my fellow man. Jesus had compassion, one thing I was short on. We all desire love acceptance and forgiveness and in my short lifetime have not found much of that from professing Christians, especially Pentecostals, some from Anglicans which has amazed me. We are all on a journey, only Father God knows the truth of the heart, my prayer is that we all become more Christ like which can be obtained by being filled with the Holy Spirit which is an on going process.
