Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Dear Lord, I am so tired of those who are doing wrong using these verse's to belittle us for calling attention to their wrong behavior, Amen.
It would be hilarious if it weren't so sad that those that criticize the Christian world for judging them for their wrong behavior are their own worst judges.
What do I mean?
Well first, theses people have no understanding of the word “Judge” and even worse those of us who are intimidated by this slanderous talk also do not know the meaning of this word.
Secondly, it is known human nature that if I accuse you of judging my behavior then I know deep down that what I am doing IS worthy of judgment.
It is true that Jesus told us not to judge and went on further to state that it is the very standard that we use to judge another that we will be judged, again understanding of the word Judged will clear up a lot of this nonsense. So lets take a look at the word 'Judge'.
The word interpreted as 'Judge' in Greek is:
Properly to distinguish, that is, decide (mentally or judicially); by implication to try, condemn, punish: - avenge, conclude, condemn, damn, decree, determine, esteem, judge, go to (sue at the) law, ordain, call in question, sentence to, think.
Total KJV occurrences: 114 (Strongs Hebrew and Greek Dictionary)
The English equivalent is:
JUDGE, v.t. To hear and determine a case; to examine and decide.
Chaos shall judge the strife.
1. To try; to examine and pass sentence on.
Take ye him and judge him according to your law.
God shall judge the righteous and the wicked. Eccl 3.
2. Rightly to understand and discern.
He that is spiritual, judgeth all things. 1 Cor 2.
3. To censure rashly; to pass severe sentence.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. Mat 7.
4. To esteem; to think; to reckon.
If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord--
5. To rule or govern.
The Lord shall judge his people. Heb 10.
6. To doom to punishment; to punish.
I will judge thee according to thy ways. Ezek 7.
The LGBT crowd is the one who screams and misquotes this scripture the most. First who is judging them, me or God? As far as I am concerned as long as they are not trying to recruit me and as long as they keep their behavior confined to behind doors, I could care less what they do to themselves.
Their behavior becomes a problem when they demand that I accept and normalize their abnormality as normal human sexuality. Gay parades, Gay or Lesbian characters on public TV, teaching “Tommy Has Two Dad's” to our children as normal, is unacceptable.
Gays often say their behavior is natural and normal, they point to wild animals that sometimes behave as they do, Sadly they fail to see the truth that in the wild those individuals that act homo sexually in their packs or other social groups regularly are shunned at best and killed at worst. Same sex, sexual relations are not normal nor are they natural. Even the deed it's self is witnesses to the fact it is abnormal. Women need strap on dildos or other objects that are not flesh, men use that orifice designed for bodily waste. What is natural about that! Nature judges and declares this is wrong! I am just reporting the obvious, not judging.
But, God declared this behavior wrong in the Law (Leviticus 18:22-25). Also, the Apostle Paul affirms this in the New Testament (Romans 1:24).
So to get back to the word Judge and it's abuse by LGBT's. I have made a judgment for me and that is that I will follow God and His dictates to the best of my ability, that also means that I agree with God in His judgment in what is right and what is wrong. He has declared LGBT behavior as wrong and therefore I agree. No amount of argument or emotional abuse will change my mind. Sixty five miles per hour in an school zone is wrong, am I wrong for reporting someone I see violating that law or asking the offender to stop offending, No I Don't Think So! And, I sure didn't judge 'em.
One of the other scriptures used to shame and emotionally abuse Christians by the LGBT community is'” Joh 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” It is pure foolishness for the world to use this verse to abuse us, because it does not apply to them. What I mean is the commandment is for the church and about the church, as believers we are to love each other as evidence of loving our Christ, Jesus.( see verse 35)
So, the LGBT community is accusing us of passing a judgment on them. Have we?
Perhaps some have, those who have killed or abused them, yes I would have to say that is most likely actions of those who see themselves as a judge and had condemned the accused.
But what about the rest of us who are offended by open homosexual behavior and the political agenda of those who are trying to justify their abnormal behavior?
I can't speak for all of us but for me and those I have talked to, If your a member of the LGBT community, I love you and feel for you, if you do not repent you will be judged by God but not by me. I am sad for you because it is promised you will have health issues (Romans 1:26 - 32) for your judging God as wrong and standing on your pride. I understand you loving your same sex friends, I do mine too, but I do not have to sleep with them and pretend I am married to them.
Here is the bottom line, because I Love You and do not want to see you judged by God, please repent of your behavior before the Law catches you, because when it does, rebellion has it's own reward, absolute Hell!
