Judgement vs Spiritual Discernment –
Judgment calls that make us feel superior and place others beneath our heal is not the right way to call out others’ behavior.
However, in regards to our personal safety (and the safety of our loved ones), or because our intuition’s warning signals are tugging at us to keep our distance from a particular person or group, sensible discernment is wise.
It says in The Bible that we are ‘not to judge others, lest we be judged.’ But God’s Word also states that we are to ‘love everyone, but trust no one,’ as in the verse about being ‘as innocent as doves, but as shrewd as snakes,’ (Mathew 10:16). The Bible also makes mention that ‘keeping evil company will corrupt a person’s moral character.’
Though dominance in a self-righteousness frame of mind or holding others in contempt is sinful, spiritual discernment is not only okay, it is a necessity.
Our Heavenly Father knows our intentions.
2 Corinthians 3:4-5
And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.
