Sermon By: Pastor Matt Spradlin
Jesus says we are to judge not. Jesus is not forbidding making moral or spiritual judgments. In fact, the whole Sermon on the Mount is Jesus making moral and spiritual judgments. What Jesus is saying is we are not to have a critical spirit that delights in focusing on the faults of others. He is not saying do not exercise discernment. He is saying do not set yourself up as if you are the Judge of others because that role belongs to God and God alone.
