Judge by Elder Tommie Freeman

  1. 1. Judging - Judgment - to judgeAre there a time to judge and a time not to? As I startedthis article I find it to be a big subject. Let’s look at theword judge, here is what God told the Judges in the OldTestament: 2ndChr 19:6 “and said to the judges, Takeheed what you do: for ye judge not for man, but for theLord, who [is] with you in the judgment.” Thus, theywere picked to judge not for men but God. Here is whatwas said to the princes in Is 1:23. He said they were:“rebellious and companions of thieves: everyone lovedgifts, and followed after rewards: they judge not thefatherless; neither doth the cause of the widow comeunto them.” Does this not sound like many PB Elders?In Jer 5:28 he says: “they are waxen fat, they shine: yeathey overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge notthe cause, the cause, of the fatherless, yet they prosper;and the right of the needy do they not judge.” In Luke 6:37 Jesus says: “judge not, and ye shallnot be judged: condemn not and ye shall not becondemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.”
  2. 2. Therefore, we find that when we try to judge in the oldlaw way we get in trouble, in Lev 19:15 God says thatthey were to judge and show no respect of persons andthey were not to make a deference between the poor orthe rich. This is the way Lev 19:15 reads: “ye shall do nounrighteousness in judgment: thou shall not respect theperson of the poor or the person of the mighty: [but] inrighteousness shalt thy judge your neighbor.”By Elder Tommie Freeman
