The Sermon on the Mount 1 When He saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain, # Mk 3:13 Lk 9:28 Jn 6:3 and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. 2 Then # Lit Then opening His mouth He began to teach them, saying: # Ac 8:35 |NoBook| 10:34 |NoBook| 18:14 The Beatitudes 3 “The poor in spirit are blessed, # Is 57:15; 66:2
1 One day he said, “Samuel, I've rejected Saul, and I refuse to let him be king any longer. Stop feeling sad about him. Put some olive oil # 16.1 olive oil: See the note at 9.16. in a small container # 16.1 small container: Hebrew “horn”; animal horns were sometimes hollowed out and used as containers. and go and visit a man named Jesse, who lives in Bethlehem. I've chosen one of his sons to be my king.” 2 Samuel answered, “If I do that, Saul will find out and have me killed.” “Take a calf with you,” the Lord replied.
Judging Others 1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
The Weak and the Strong 1 Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. 2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand. 5 One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike.
Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath 1 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and his disciples began to pick some heads of grain, rub them in their hands and eat the kernels. 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, “Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” 3 Jesus answered them, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? 4 He entered the house of God, and taking the consecrated bread, he ate what is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.” 5 Then Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” 6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. 7 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. 8 But Jesus knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, “Get up and stand in front of everyone.”
Jesus and his Brothers 1 After this, Jesus travelled in Galilee; he did not want to travel in Judea, because the Jewish authorities there were wanting to kill him. 2 # Lev 23.34 Deut 16.13 The time for the Festival of Shelters was near, 3 so Jesus' brothers said to him, “Leave this place and go to Judea, so that your followers will see the things that you are doing. 4 No one hides what he is doing if he wants to be well known. Since you are doing these things, let the whole world know about you!” 5 (Not even his brothers believed in him.) 6 Jesus said to them, “The right time for me has not yet come. Any time is right for you. 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me, because I keep telling it that its ways are bad. 8 You go on to the festival.
The passage that everybody quotes about judgment is Matthew 7:1, which says, "Stop judging others, and you will not be judged." (NLT). That chapter goes on to say, "For others will treat you as you treat them. Whatever measure you use in judging others, it will be used to measure how you are judged. And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye, when you have a log in your own?
Occasionally, we receive correspondence from individuals (liberal, progressive, postmodern, moral relativist, monist, etc.) which are judgmental and seek to censor our liberty in Christ and our obligation to exercise judgment/discernment (1 Cor. 2:15). Curiously, these individuals fail to see the blatant contradiction and hypocrisy of their own position--that of engaging in the very behavior which they CLAIM is religiously, philosophically or politically unacceptable. Typically, they quote Matthew 7:1 out of context " Do not judge, or you too will be judged." as a 'proof text' to the exclusion of what the remainder of Scripture has to say on this important subject.
by Richard Winstead Atlanta, GA Let's start with a pop quiz: What does it mean to judge? You don't have to answer that right now; that's what we're going to look at in this study. Have you ever sought to confront wrong-doing, or reprove someone, only to be met with, "You can't judge me!" or "Christians aren't supposed to judge!"
Today, one of the most quoted verses that we hear thrown out by people is " Judge not, that ye be judged. " Therefore meaning, " who are you to judge me? " " Don't you know that you are not supposed to judge people? " Usually this is what comes out of a person's mouth when confronted about their behavior, their personal beliefs, or for what they are teaching.
Judging Articles See Also According to the Bible, Christians are to apply scriptural principles of discernment regarding beliefs, teachings and actions.

So I'd like you turn with me, if you would today, to I Corinthians, Chapter 11 and Verse 31 and I'd like to introduce a topic that a number of brethren had asked me about over the past, probably six months to a year, and it starts with looking at this particular Scripture in I Corinthians 11 and Verse 31 where the Apostle Paul says: For if we would judge ourselves we would not be judged - if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. So he talks about the partaking of the Passover and understanding the bread, understanding the wine, understanding the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us as an individual.
It was F.B. Meyer, I believe, who once said that when we see a brother or sister in sin, there are two things we do not know: First, we do not know how hard he or she tried not to sin. And second, we do not know the power of the forces that assailed him or her. We also do not know what we would have done in the same circumstances. Stephen Brown, Christianity Today , April 5, 1993, p. 17.
