Matthew 7:1-5;15-20

"Judge not, that you be not judged.  For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged: and with what measure you mete, it will be measured to you again.  Why do you behold the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? How will you say to your brother, "Let me pull out the mote out of your eye;" behold, a beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first throw out the beam out of your own eye; then you will see clearly to throw out the mote out of your brother's eye."

Psalms 50:6

"The heavens will declare His Righteousness: for God is Judge Himself.  Selah."

Hebrews 4:12

"For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

Romans 8:28

"We know that all things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."

1 Corinthians 6

"Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to Law before the unjust, and not before the Saints? Do you not know that the Saints will judge the world? If the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know you not that we will judge Angels? How much more things that pertain to this life? If then you have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the Church.  I speak to your shame.  Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? No, not one who will be able to judge between his Brethren? But brother goes to Law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.  Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because you go to Law one with another.  Why do you not rather take wrong? Why do you not rather suffere yourselves to be defrauded? No, you do wrong, and defraud, and that your Brethren.  Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not decived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of God.  Such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are Sanctified, but you are Justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.  All things are Lawful to me, but all things are not profitable: all things are Lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.  Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God will destroy both it and them.  Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.  God has both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by His Own Power.  Do you not know that your bodies are the members of Christ? will I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.  What? Do you not know that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? "For two," said He, "will be one flesh." He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.  Flee fornication.  Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he who commits fornication sins against his own body. What? Do you not know that your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own? For you are bought with a price: therefore Glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

1 Corinthians 2:15

"But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man."

John 15:4

"Abide in Me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the Vine; no more can you, except you abide in Me."

1 Peter 4:17

"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the House of God: if it first begin at us, what will the end be of them who obey not the Gospel of God?"

Romans 7:5

"For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the Law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit to death."

Isaiah 59:8

"The way of peace they know not; there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goes therein will not know peace."

John 15:16

"You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain : that whatsoever you will ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it you."

Romans 10:14

"How then will they call on Him in Whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard? How will they hear without a preacher?"

2 Corinthians 3:2

"You are our Epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:"

We know that God is the ultimate judge of our eternity souls, and I'm glad that it's his responsibility because He is the only one that knows the thoughts and intents of the heart(Heb. 4), But I believe we have a responsibility to judge others. Take for example Mat. 7:1, it's not about if we judge. but how we judge. We must look at ourselves first, get right with God and have a clear vision after removing the beam in our eye. Than we can go to our brother with love, and a desire to correct, not condemn. The splint in our brother or sisters eye may be small, but if left unattended, it could cause great irritation if not infections which could result in severe damage, and spiritual blindness and it could infect the whole congregation if left to it's own. Another reason to judge is the devil would like to get a foot-hold in the door. We need Spiritual discernment to make sure false prophets and doctrine doesn't make its way in. We will know them by their fruit, and we who are spiritual need to recognize the evil fruit and step up and immediately make sure this won't happen. We must protect the purity and Holiness of our Sanctuary and God's Holy word at all cost.

God's Word is the key to providing righteous judgement. If we know God's Word and rely on Him for our Wisdom and our strength then He leads us into all righteousness and all truth.
John 16:13: 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

We must follow the gift of righteousness given to those who believe Jesus Christ was crucified for our sins, died, and rose again. Jesus Christ is our hope for all righteousness. The World thinks this hope is foolishness and many will not believe, but keep your eyes on Jesus and the gift of righteousness from God will open your eyes and you will see. This is the path to righteous judgement and the only way to secure our eternal salvation with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
