Hello all! I need help with understanding the proper distinction of judging others in an immoral way versus proper judgement of others. Basically the heart of the issue is when do we need to speak up about the sins of others and when do we need to pray for them instead?
I ask this because clearly John the Baptist judged Herod in a proper way but pointing out that his relationship with his brother’s wife was unlawful. However, there are numerous incidents in the New testament where Jesus criticizes those who judge others. For instance the woman caught in adultery the people who caught her were basically told not to judge. I understand the distinction in my heart but am having trouble with it in my head. And I think knowing it in my head will help me to live more boldly the Gospel. Thank you.
