Bible Matters -- Are All Judgmental People Bad?

Bible Matters is a discussion group about various topics.  We gather to discuss how the Scriptures guide us in how we address and defend the Christian faith in these matters.  Our discussion allows for frank discussions, honest questions, and even bold challenges to the Christian faith.  Our goal is to make Christians more comfortable in confessing their faith and in practicing that faith accordingly.

This week's topic: Are all judgmental people bad?

If there is one verse from the Bible that everyone seems to know, it is this: "Judge not, and you will not be judged" (Luke 6:37).   

Christians have often been accused of being judgmental and burdening people with unnecessary shame and guilt.  This verse from the Scriptures is used to tell Christians to practice what their Scriptures actually teach.  To confess faith in the Scriptures and to not follow them is hypocritical.  

So, where does that leave the Christian?  Can we judge or not?  What do we have to say to others?  How would we say it?  

We meet on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM.  Topics may be suggested to the pastor and will be announced prior to each session.  

If anyone wants to follow along on Zoom, contact the pastor (welsnovi@aol.com) and I will send you a link.  Your contribution to the discussion may have to be limited to the Chat feature. 

Upcoming topics:

Nov 18 –  The canon of Scripture: Can we be sure we have the right books in the Bible? 

Nov 25 –  Thanksgiving service
