Do We Judge or Do We claim that we have never judged?

Very often during the course of any conversation we hear the statements “ Do Not Judge” God will take care of them.

God has given us various talents do we waste them or do we work on those talents and fine tune them.

It cannot be said that a person who does not study needs to pass in the Examination since he has prayed to Jesus.

Now coming to the point of judging. Is there any person who can put his hand on his heart and say that he has never judged in his life?

Let us start from child birth the doctor has to use his judgement and skill to decide if he wants to go in for a normal or caesarean section.

Then the child goes to school/college don’t  the parents judge which school/college is best.

We go to the market don’t we judge which fish/produce is the best  and after judging the value we pay the price.

We, go to buy a shirt don’t we judge which shirt is best.

We, intend getting married don’t we choose the right partner.

We, have differences and want an annulment,don’t we approach the Church authorities and file a case and isn’t a judgement given as per the Canon Law.

Is judgment not used when a Priest is to be made Bishop?

The list can go on and on .

If there is one person who says that he does not judge then he is a hypocrite.

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

    One of the most misused phrases” Do not be judgemental” or Judge not so that you not be judged’ or “Do not judge, leave it to God”.
    The modern Catholic uses it to justify incorporating inappropriate worldly behaviour that is like the acceptance of the culture of the pagans by the Israelites in the Old Testament. Most Priests do not explicitly disapprove.
    This is used only where moral behaviour is in question. In all other respects they aggressively collect information to make the “best, informed, responsible decision”.
    God gave man free will and reason. The “responsibility” to use free will is reduced by the extent to which mental capacity is less. This is a principle even in western jurisprudence. The punishment of the servant who buried his single talent is the Biblical source of this “judgment”.
