Don’t Judge Me

We tend to throw out sayings like, “Only God Can Judge Me” or “He Who Judges First is Without Sin” Why are we such a judgmental society?  We all do it; it’s human nature.  We all would love to say “I do not judge people” but that would be a lie.

We judge because deep down inside we fear what we don’t know or understand.  Some of us are better at it than others.  People view others as they view themselves…this leads to judgment. Don’t worry; there is a mirror on both sides.  We look at our walk and talk and expect people not to stray far from what we do.  So when you see something that you do not view as normal we judge it.  In my experience, those quick to point to others as deviants to the norm tend to have their own skeletons in their closets, and that’s most likely the reason to start judging, to make others look away from them.

If you really think about it judging is a defensive measure that everyone uses.  I do not believe there is a problem with judging people.  Actually believers are accountable to each other and should judge accordingly.  I do say get to know people first before you write them off to understand if your thoughts were correct which will help you when you meet new people in the future.

As humans we need to make sure we know the difference between judging people and making personal decisions that help you better yourself.  I think judging and making better decisions for you can be hard to decipher.    You meet someone that is always talking bad about people around them and you decide to not hang with that person it does not mean you are judging them. However, you are considering their actions and you are deciding not to be associated with their actions.  Now when you start looking down on someone for being gay or for choosing not to go to church then you are judging them.  Just because someone chooses not to have the same walk of life as you does not mean you should look down on them.  None of us are perfect.  Am I better if I cheat on my wife, but I provide for my family or I never cheat on my wife but I steal to provide for my family?  Neither is right but which one do we view as worse?

  1. I like how you clarified the difference when a person is judge others. Great article! Like what Deepak Chopra talks about in the 7 laws of success judging others is a waste of mental and spiritual energy.

  2. As a viable member of society it is your duty to Judge others. If we did not Judge the world would be more reckless than it already is. You should not go around judgeing people just because of what they wear, their race where they are from, etc. But in order to hold people responsible for there actions there has to be a reasonable amount of Judging. When you on a candidate you are Judgeing. When you fight for justice you are judging, when you date you are judging.

    Overall this article makes the reader think! Thinking usually leads to progress; good article.

  3. I do not know about the judging part. I think it is more of a character thing that look down on people or judging them. We have to be careful about the company we keep. Hey but a lot people just judge what they do not know or understand and that is what we have to get past. It is dumb and ignorant. Judge what you know and not what you don’t know and understand.

  4. I do think that people should judge. It is a crazy world look people are getting killed everyday because someone is judging based on race size age. The thing is jack of all trades we suck at judging. That is not for us to do. We need to stay in our lane we are probably wrong 96% of the time when it comes to other. I can not count how many times I said I was wrong about others. Then people I gave the benefit of the doubt guess what wrong about them. God is the judge period. I can not hold things against you from you past we all got things we not proud of. Now we are different in our walks and talk so we should pick and choose who we spend our time with it is our time but. We choose Bush and he killed our economy. Good judge of character give me a break.

  5. I agree we all judge, and someone above said we REALLY suck at it… I agree! We also need judgement to a certain degree to make changes to ourselves and even people closest to us… I don’t know if I like the word judgement being thrown around as it is today… it similar to the word “hater”, just because I think you look horrible doesn’t make me a hater… it means I think you look horrible. My point… it’s used incorrectly, but I agree with the piece written almost 100%! Just the last part about judging and looking down on people… is that what the view is? For example, people who are Christians not dating non-Christians- this is viewed as judging and looking down on non-Christians?
