Are Christians suppose to judge?

These doctrines of Jesus have the true answer!

To the Just, Righteous, Wise Follower of Jesus…

1Corinthians 6:2-3 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?

Therefore...

Zechariah 8:16Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace...

1Timothy 5:20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.

2 Thessalonians 3:6 ...withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly...

From those who do not repent...

1 Corinthians 5:5 ...deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1 Corinthians 5:15 Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke is better Than love carefully concealed.

Proverbs 28:23 He who rebukes a man will find more favor afterward Than he who flatters with the tongue.

Just remember...

John 7:24 Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.

However...

1 Corinthians 5:12-13 What business is it of (ours) to judge those outside the church? (We are only to judge those inside) God will judge those outside.

Yes, Followers of Jesus are to Make Judgements According to the Holy Bible, in Truth and with Mercy!

Now In regards to...

Romans 14 (...doubtful things...let us not judge one another anymore...)

To the Un-Just, Un-Wise Hypocrite, the Holy Bible Says…

Matthew 7:1-5 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Romans 2:13 Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?
