Christians stop allowing the world to make you feel like a Pharisee because you quote the scripture. It is the devil’s job in these last and evil days to make the world hate Christians or think Christians are idiots. Yes, there are judgmental people out there. Yes, there are people who quote scriptures and commit the same sin, they are not Christians they are hypocrites (Matthew 15:7). Stop confusing the two. When Jesus confronted the Pharisees, He called them exactly what they were hypocrites. That is not the definition of a Christian. According to the online Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a Christian is one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Characteristics of a Christian can best be described in 2 Peter 1:5-7. If they do not exhibit these behaviors, then they are not Christians. A good synonym for Hypocrite is a pretender and in some cases a false prophet.
Thou shall not judge?
Those who love speaking against Christians like using scriptures that verbalize against judging others (Matthew 7:1-6; Luke 6:37-38). When Jesus spoke against condemning others, He was talking against those who carry the hypocritical, judgmental attitude that tears others down to build themselves up. This scripture did not mean to overlook those who choose to do wrong or false prophets.
As Christians, we are to have compassion love and forgiveness. If you are a Christian, you will look at yourself before you judge others. Christians are called to discerning rather than having a negative spirit. 2 Timothy 4:2 tells you to preach the Word of Christ! The eyes of God and Christ are watching you. 2 Timothy 4:2 said, “Patiently correct, rebuke and encourage people when you are ministering to them.” Liars, thieves, adulterers, homosexual activities, murderers, worshiping false gods to include any other ungodly practice need are sins that need to be rebuke.
How much of the Bible do you use?
Some people use half the Bible to prove a point and discard the rest. If someone has a problem with hearing the Word of God, it is not the Christian’s fault maybe it is the sinner’s flesh rejecting God’s Word. When the flesh rejects God’s Word, anyone will be blamed except the person committing the sin. The Bible is God’s Word, and God’s Word is quick, powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword (2 Timothy 3:16; John 17:17; Hebrew 4:12). This means the whole Bible is the law not just half of it!
You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved (Matthew 10:22).
