This claim comes up when one confronts a Christian about a teaching of the Church, then when one explains the teaching, it is twisted as an unfair judgement, go figure:shrug:
Really, if anyone that lives in a sinful situation, that is against Church teaching, is it not the accuser of the Christian that is pushing judgement by challenging the teaching? for are they not trying to justify their own sinful behaviour by calling something bad good, and because they cannot accept nor understand that teaching? then want to blame the Church? is that not being judgemental?
Personally I don’t go around seeking out and asking people about their sex lives, but if they want to know about the Church teachings concerning any matter, I’m going to let them know it to the best of my ability - is that being judgemental? On these forums I try to develop my thoughts and my arguments on many subjects as it relates to the Church and her teachings, and as it comes to judgement on certain situations and moral behavior it is like Scarecrow’s comments on Matthew 7:1-5, for there is a difference to judgement of behavoir and immoral conduct as to condemnation and judgement of one’s salvation. It is not hateful to point out behavoir that can do harm.
Fellow Christians and Catholics here are some suggested Rules to follow, Brethren, and if a man be overtaken in any fault, you, who are spiritual, instruct such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted Gal 6:1 and *Let us therefore love God: because God first hath loved us. **If any man say: I love God, and hateth his brother; he is a liar. For he that loveth not his brother whom he seeth, how can he love God whom he seeth not? *[size=1]And this commandment we have from God, that he who loveth God love also his brother.[size=3] [size=1]1John 4:19 -21[/size][/size][/size]
[size=1][size=3][size=1]Sometimes it is hard for others to see our love, maybe it is in our presentation? and/or the seriousness of thier sin and/or their blindness to it?:shrug:[/size][/size]
