On Justice and Judging

You cannot establish justice or be just if you cannot make judgments as to what is right and wrong. God help us if we continue any further down the path of “non-judgmentalism.”

  1. I wish I knew the context to which you are referring. You must have something in mind. Justice speaks of a wrong being righted and freedom to do what God has ordained each individual to do separately as well as corporately; while nonjudgmentalism is that space or distance we allow between ourselves and another not to condemn unjustly. The whole ‘wait until you’ve walked a mile in my shoes’ kind of thing. Jesus repeated called on us to examine our own lives rather than another’s – “Judge not, lest ye be judged”; “He who is without sin, cast the first stone”; “Remove the log from your own eye so you can see clearly to remove the splinter from your neighbor’s”; etc.
