    Matthew 7:1-3 (NIV)

    1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
    3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

    Heeding this is a place to start. I don't think it means to say nothing, but to temper what you say with as much mercy as you would desire for yourself. Hold yourself back from judging, but do not be afraid of saying the truth.

    In Respect for our brothers and sisters, who's redemption were bought at the same high price,

    Is this saying not to judge Mel or might it really be saying not to be judgmental because in truth should'nt we approach everything judiciously? When we become judgmental and hoier than thou however we run into the problem of not really being in any better standing with God than those we are judging. As far as the denominational differences I think it is good to give people a place where they feel good with the worship styles and teching methods. Lets face Paul and the other aposles had differences of opinion. Put 3 people together and you will get differing opinions. The church as a whole is the body of Christ. In Revelations where the messages to the churches the same? Open the garage door. let people see what the church is about and have a good time serving God.

    Going a little off the mark here, Who is this writer? From your daughter's comment, it seems that he is a singer? Popular one?

    Justin McRoberts is a contemporary christian singer. He is not very well known but is from California so we have seen him perform a couple of times. He is very passionate. His CD Father has several songs that really resonate with me lately.

    Mel and Ross, you guys are bith right on. God led me to Jude on my last vacation, just when I needed it most. Jude starts by saying "contend for the faith" and goes on to show how damaging people with this attitude can be. But his point ends with a call to prayer and mercy. It took me a while to see that prayer is contending, that He will defend His church.

    Lets face it, if God had made us all alike he could have made us all Baptist (or whatever). But it is amazing to see all the different ways people worship Him. From liturgies, to rolling in the aisles, from fasting to feasting. I have tried many of them and they all work in different ways.

    Have any of you had a good hard look at yourself in light of the "judgement" thing. I seriously try hard not to judge, but on a subconcience level, I tend to judge. Personally I think the "don't judge" thing is one of the hardest things to have victory over. It's easy to have victory over the blatant things, but the subtle things I think are the killer.
    May I grow more like Him with every step I take.


    God Bless

    Wow Lee, I can't manage the concious level, much less the unconcious.

    Unfortunately, I think we're in a climate where the church often doeasn't even try to remind each other not to. It's interesting to remember that Jesus seemed to get along best with the sinners, not the "judgers"

    I go to 1 Samuel 22:2. It appears to me that the kings army was made up of the throw-offs and out-casts. Next, Luke 7:47, ...to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. I do believe that some of the most passionate Christians are those who have been forgiven much. The darker the night, the brighter the dawn. And yes, I have looked at myself on the judgement thing and I agree it is difficult to not judge on one level or another. The hardest thing for me is to not judge myself so harshly that I live in condemnation.
    By the way, I think that all of you are wonderful family.

    In His Service...trying hard to make Him happy,
