Paul teaches the Elect to Judge one another !

1st Corinthians 5:9-13 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with immoral men; not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and robbers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But, rather I wrote to you not to associate with any one who bears the name of brother if he is quilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber – not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with Judging Outsiders ? Is it not those INSIDE THE CHURCH WHOM YOU ARE TO JUDGE ? God judges those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.”

Where do we get the false idea … of fearing being accused of being Judgmental ?
