What Jesus Really Means When He Says ‘Do Not Judge
When Jesus said people shouldn’t judge, he wasn’t telling them not to denounce wrong behavior, says world renowned evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
Recently, Graham was asked why Jesus told people not to judge, such as in Luke 6:37, where He said: “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.”
“I don’t think it’s up to us to judge who is religious and who isn’t. I have my own beliefs, and I get upset when someone tries to question me about them or make me believe the same way they do. Didn’t Jesus say somewhere that we shouldn’t judge others?” the person asked in a Q&A submitted to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website.
While Graham explained that “only God has the right” to judge, this doesn’t exclude Christians from pointing out wrongdoing.
“This doesn’t mean, however, that we’re supposed to be indifferent to right or wrong, or be unaware of the dangers that come from immoral decisions or false beliefs. Nor does it mean we should overlook our own sins,” wrote Graham.
“In fact, later in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus urges us to judge between true and false ways of living (which we do by seeing their results). He also commands us to be judges of our own sins — which may be far greater than those we see in others.”
Graham told the person that he can’t help but wonder “why you don’t want anyone to challenge your beliefs or even talk with you about them.”
