Meaning
Rant time. Don't like, don't read. "Stop judging according to outward appearances; rather judge according to righteous judgment." John 7: 24. People who say "Only God can judge me" are confused. (Yes, it is ultimately God who will judge each of us based on our decision to either accept the sacrifice that Jesus made for them, or reject it, but I'm talking about something else now.) It's okay to judge someone or something as being moral or immoral. If I tell someone that abusing their kids is wrong, am I judgmental? No, I'm just saying that it's morally wrong. If I tell someone that shoplifting is wrong, am I acting superior? No, I'm saying that shoplifting is wrong, and they need to stop shoplifting. That's correct judgement: calling out a morally wrong act for what it is. Seriously, where do people get the idea that they can act without any accountability whatsoever, because 'nobody has the right to judge anything' that they do? That's why we have police, judges, and juries - to keep moral order and protect the weak. It's like saying "That officer doesn't have the right to judge me by arresting me, just because I was tagging that bridge - he doesn't know my life story!" Errgh. End rant.
