Why does your site have articles that judge fellow believers in Christ?

The Bible is very clear concerning people who cause harm to the spiritual health of the Church. It is not only a right but also a duty to judge those folks who stray from the truth. Many people do not realize that the Bible goes as far as to command us to judge.

The Apostle Paul also told believers, "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple" (Rom. 16:17-18).

The Lord Jesus Christ commanded, "Judge righteous judgment" (Jn. 7:24). He told a man, "Thou hast rightly judged" (Lk. 7:43). To others, our Lord asked, "Why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?" (Lk. 12:57).

The Apostle Paul wrote, "I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say" (1 Cor. 10:15). Again, Paul declared, "He that is spiritual judgeth all things" (1 Cor. 2:15). It is our assigned duty to judge.

This command could not be carried out if church leaders did not judge the works of those causing trouble.

The Apostle John said, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try [test, judge] the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (1 Jn. 4:1).

Again he warned, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.... If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds" (2 Jn. 7:10-11).
