In my country, some of those who style themselves evangelicals already do go around judging other people.

This is exactly the thin line I am referring to. We don´t have the right to judge, only God has, however convenient or not convenient that is. But at the same time we can, and maybe we have to, remind ourelves and our fellow Christian brothers of aforementioned. So more of us come to act in God´s will.

Reminding someone who calls himself a Christian of certain passages in the Bible is not to judge, in my opinion. It is rather like spreading the word.

You're absolutely right Hip Hop.

I was offended by finance guy's comment of "how convenient".

Christians constantly get flammed in this forum for, "sitting in judgement of others". Yet when I say God should judge, my view is belittled. It's a catch 22.

why should anyone judge? why not live and let live, so long as the rights of others are preserved? why must judgement be inferred in all actions, whether by man or God?

All I can add to this discussion is:

many are called, few are chosen.

Many who pride (false pride) themselves on being excellent Christians will one day find out what God thinks of them.

My favorite quote from the Bible is "those who exalt themselves on earth, shall be humbled in heaven as those who humble themselves on earth shall be exalted in heaven".

We all could learn from those words.

Actually I left FYM for a period of time when just such an individual told me I didn't believe in God.

Apparently he felt qualified enough to judge.

I got examples too but do not want to quote them here, I guess I can be harsh too. The one who I am talking about knows very well, let´s leave it at that.

Back to the topic at hand. The Bible says:

1Cr 11:18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

1Cr 11:19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

1Cr 11:20 When ye come together therefore into one place, [this] is not to eat the Lord's supper.

1Cr 11:21 For in eating every one taketh before [other] his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.


"It is impossible to implement love in a society that is divided into classes. A class society is the negation of Christian love.

To celebrate an authentic Eucharist, we need a classless society. We can not appear at the same table to celebrate the Eucharist, if we are seperated in classes, in rich and poor. "

Ernesto Cardenal, 1973

We all will stand before a Holy God and give account for our actions. This is the crux of your thoughts. The world does not promote the serious living of faith. It matters to God. It should matter to us.

True that, thanks for your reply. The world doesn´t promote it, but following the Bible, we Christians (and I don´t exclude any other religion, for that matter) have the duty to promote it.
