To Judge Others is an Act Inspired by the Holy Spirit


blogbadge.jpg

I admire the meekness of spirit that is in you, friend. Although, I can not see your heart (for it is only God who can see the heart), I can guess, if not judge, that you are a man of a lowly heart.

(Jeremiah 17:9-10) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

But a wise Christian can judge. The notion that we- must-not-judge-because-God-is-the-only-rightful-judge is not biblical. Our Lord Jesus Christ once said that:

(Matthew 7:1-5) Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

These pronouncements of the Lord Jesus (if carefully considered from context) does not mean that a Christian must not judge. He is directing these to hypocrites. Hypocrites criticize and judge others of things which they themselves have, more grievously. A beam is greater than a mote! This is the practice of false preachers.

(Romans 2:21-22) Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

It is not wrong to say “thou shall not steal” if you steal not,nor is it wrong to criticize someone who commits adultery if you are not committing adultery. If we judge somebody who continuously commits adultery, that by such act he can not enter heaven, we are not sinning against God because it is God’s judgment that we are passing to such person. In fact, it is our duty as Christians to judge those who recklessly transgress God’s law.

(John 7:24) Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

In the true Church of God, it is God’s doctrine that Christians must know how to judge rightfully among themselves.

(1 Corinthians 6:1-5, 9-10) Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

The Apostle Paul teaches the Christians at Corinth to know how to ‘rightfully judge’ within themselves because the Corinthians have been so lenient in judging those who commits immorality and diverse transgressions, which the Apostle Paul ‘judged’ saying that these people will not inherit the kingdom of God.

(1 Corinthians 5:3) For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed.

What is prohibited by the Bible among Christians is to say evil against any brother in faith, presuming without basis that, a brother is doing evil. In such a manner, Christians are prohibited to judge.

(James 4:11-12) Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

‘Presumed evil’ can be wrong! Only God knows the whole truth about a person, so He is the only rightful judge — in such a situation; but the obvious works or deeds of a so-called brother bespeaks of the kind of heart that is in him. If a so-called brother is continuously committing sins and transgressing God’s law openly, we can judge or pass on God’s judgment to such people. Seeing somebody who openly transgresses God’s will, gives us the burden or obligation of doing something to stop such a folly.

(Leviticus 5:1) And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.

True Christian love does not rejoice in iniquities…

(1 Corinthians 13:4, 6) Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth…RSV

…nor allows it.

(Romans 1:32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

A preacher has a more serious responsibility of speaking against wrongdoings or open transgression of people, especially among his peers.

(Isaiah 58:1) Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

Crying aloud or writing a blog to show people the misdeeds, especially of pretending preachers, is a divine mandate found, both, in Old and New Testament books.

(Titus 1:13) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith…

I was saddened to have read the blog of Brother Timothy Kurek entitled “Confession of a Runner” when he said that it is because of ‘pride’ that he criticized the wrongdoings of some pastors and preachers. I believe it is not pride; for pride is of the world, but criticisms that come from someone who have high regards of the Divine Will is not pride, but an act of the Holy Spirit in a preacher that fears God.

(1 John 2:15-16) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

To rebuke the wrongdoings, especially of self-proclaimed preachers, is an act inspired by the Holy Spirit.

(John 16:8) And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment…

It is the Holy Spirit that inspired Paul to rebuke the hypocrites and the transgressors in his dispensation.

(Acts 13:8-10) But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, And said, O full of all subtlety and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?

A true preacher of God does not only preach grace, love, and mercy; but also, God’s judgment — even to the extent of disputing and contending with the unbelievers.

(Acts 9:22, 29) But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ…

…And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.

It is a ‘Divine Obligation’ of Christians to fight wrong teachings!

(Ephesians 6:12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

To bring down their false doctrines and teachings is a must.

(2 Corinthians 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds…

God, who is the ultimate expression of love that we may know, forgives, understands, hates, and judges. He hates ungodliness and unrighteousness. He judges the reckless. That kind of love that He has, is exactly the love that He wants us Christians to have: no more, no less.

Brother Tim, if you have to follow the admonition of your preachers; and if I have to follow them also, one of the most important components of truth will be hidden.

(Matthew 23:23) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

I pray for your enlightenment.

  1. Undoubtedly, bRother EliSEO F. Soriano is the Man sent
    by God to Lead this dispensation to the Path of Rigtheousness,
    He is a pargon of sincerity and truthfulness He never employs candy-coated words in his preaching just to please and entice
    people…!

    “He is a LOVER of Truth and Nothing but the truth!”

    Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth.
    John 17:17

    “the word of GOD IS TRUTH”

    For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    Hebrews 4:12

  2. quiel,

    Did you not read my comment above?! I was talking about judgments devoid of love… PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP MISREADING WHAT I SAID. I JUST EXPLAINED IT AGAIN. PLEASE. I love you guys and I support your ministry. Trust that the Lord has continued to teach me how to rightly divide the word of truth and that I do not believe judgement of false prophets is pride.

  4. I would like you to know Bro Eli that we really miss you very much here in the Philippines. I miss those very intelligent, no-nonsense preaching of yours while you were still in Apalit and I would really strode my wheelchair in front of the stage just to see you personally preach to us in the flesh were I would get chills and goosebumps everytime you reveal something to us from the Bible and those were the times that you would personally talk to us heart-to-heart and we really can feel that you really care for us like no other can! Thanks be to the God of Israel for us having you as his instrument in making his GENUINE words known to us. Even if I’m disabled, even if I am considered an outcast in this world, even if I know I cannot be happy in this world, YOU GAVE ME HOPE FROM GOD TO HANG ON TO LIFE IN A WAY I HAVE NEVER IMAGINED POSIBLE BECAUSE OF MY DISABILITY. YOU THOUGHT ME IN THE BIBLE HOW TO VALUE LIFE FOR GOD AND FOR THAT I WANT TO LIVE THIS LIFE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD! I AM VERY HAPPY TO HAVE YOU AS MY PREACHER AND I AM VERY PROUD OF YOU!!! WE LOVE YOU BRO. ELI FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEART!!! I CANT HELP BUT CRY BRO. ELI BECAUSE I DONT KNOW IF I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE YOU AGAIN IN THE FUTURE BUT I ALWAYS PRAY TO GOD THAT HE WILL ALWAYS KEEP YOU SAFE AND I AM LONGING FOR THAT MOMENT WHEN WE WILL BE WITH YOU AGAIN BRO. ELI.

  5. to tim kurek,

    A practicing CHRISTIAN must always “wear” his “ARMOR”(Ephesians 6:11) and “SWORD”(Ephesians 6:17) to be able to stand against the “wiles of the devil” and to “FIGHT” those who not “CEASE” to “MALIGN” and “PERVERT” the right ways of the Lord.

    Without “those”,a person is DEFENSELESS against the “evil” and “darkness” of this world…

    Just keep on reading Bro.Eli’s BLOGs and you will have a better(“best” would be more apropriate) understanding on what “CHRISTIANITY” is all about.

  6. to tim kurek

    Brother tim kurek im sorry if some of our brothers misunderstood some of the things that you said. we have no intention of offending you and i pray that you be more understanding of us and continue to share you thoughts with brother Eli in this blog.

    to the brethren

    brothers let us undertsand that we cannot expect all people to share the same understanding with us. i understand your desire to share what we know but i believe that we should leave this to brother Eli because he’s the authority about these matters

  7. Bro. Tim,

    Please do not be disheartened so easily with words/comments from others which may seem too direct or immediate. In behalf of my brethren, I personally ask for your kind understanding if we may have hurt or disappointed you with words, for I see that you are a patient and kind person.

    For one, English is not the first language of our brethren so a percentage of them may tend to either not “get” the context of things said instantly. Some will probably not be able to read or discern levels beyond written English the way Bro. Eli can (I said some, not all, ok? :).

    They can get shockingly, yes, direct (smile) but be rest assured, it’s not their intention to disagree or argue with you or assume things about you (or anyone else for that matter) without seeing the facts first.

    You also have to understand that we’re a misunderstood and trampled on people, and most are not given a chance to express themselves openly and freely. If they do so here, I am sure some are even frustrated by not being able to fully express what’s in their hearts. I think some do know what you meant but just don’t know how to reach out that thought to you. Do you see? I believe you understand this feeling though and so I wish to ask for your empathy on this matter.

    The language barrier can pose a problem in terms of being able to accurately communicate with people of different races but think about this:

    You and Bro. Eli understand each other, right? To be honest, that’s ALL that matters. It is God Almighty that brought us all together and have given us all this faith, love and understanding.

    From what I’ve read, I hope you saw that Bro. Eli was actually in fact giving you a word of encouragement to something that you thought was wrong of you to do. That it’s not a sin to judge GIVEN the correct context. I myself can see what you meant (in your blog entry) because in some ways, it’s similar to how I feel sometimes. But thanks be to God through Bro. Eli – listening to him never fails to strengthen me to go on.

    The enemy’s job is to blind minds and hearts and say all manner of lies against all things regarding the truth, but trust and believe that the truth of God will always prevail.

    So God bless you, brother, and I, along with many, pray for you too as you do us. I apologize for this intrusion :).

  8. Actually, I wish to thank Bro. Eli for the post. Because to be honest, I feel as if I am a brother who lives in Corinth – “… because the Corinthians have been so lenient in judging those who commits immorality and diverse transgressions…”

    I am the last person on earth who will attest that I do no wrong (oh no, not before God Almighty, I cannot and will not). I admit that I err so many times and do not do my duties as faithfully as I wish to. There are so many promises I have not kept. The Lord has proved to me time and again that I by myself cannot do anything good, but only through Jesus Christ who moves me and gives me this faith and hope and even the will to do.

    I am deeply sad and grieved because I see those who do all those manner of evil around me who are so hard-headed. And those who should be concerned, of older stature, ignore what’s happening. It is an understatement to say that it is difficult to deal with my own self when it starts arguing with, well, myself.

    What hurts more is when it affects my other beloved brethren. Someone unburdens to me, I unburden to some. When we talk amongst ourselves, I question – do we sin when we talk about a person who errs when there is proof that they are doing wrong?

    “What is prohibited by the Bible among Christians is to say evil against any brother in faith, presuming without basis that, a brother is doing evil. In such a manner, Christians are prohibited to judge.”

    I know I, being part of the body, have the responsibility to correct erring brethren, but I am merely a nobody and I am in no position nor do I have any authority to directly do anything about these particular people. I did try in my own way to remind or hint at these people, but I ultimately know that it is not me who will change things.

    All I can do is cry to the Father and always beg for forgiveness for any bitterness that He finds in my heart, and to help me to always forgive others, which God so graciously and wonderfully helps me with, even if I am not worthy of any of this attention from him.

    I am also no stranger to being misunderstood and thought ill of in life, no matter where it comes from. I gladly bear it because it is the mark of a true Christian as written and God’s word is truth. Besides, just thinking of what Bro. Eli went and goes through is enough to help me bear with these things. And that, also, is an understatement.

    I’m not sure if a lot of people realize this but a lowly heart is something that is not normally within all people – most of all, a humble heart TOWARDS GOD. People are so very arrogant in these times, too much so. So I myself admire this when I see it, and I see it in so few people.

    Thanks be to God for Bro. Eli.

    To Bro. Daniel. To the brethren who Christ offered Himself for, and who “don’t look back,” “don’t lose heart” and “keep moving.”

    To God be all the glory and honor forever and ever. Siya nawa.

  9. Sometimes we say wrong things because of our ignorance.

    Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

    I Timothy 1:13

    But let us always subject ourselves to the right thing whoever who says it.

    Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

    The Romans 12:9
    King James Version

  10. judging is wrong

    John 8:15
    You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one.

    1 Corinthians 4:5
    Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.

    Romans 14:4
    Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

    Colossians 2:16
    Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.

  11. by judging others you are trying to be GOD yourself. ONLY GOD can judge other people

    James 4:12
    There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?

    Colossians 2:16
    Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.

  12. between the written words (comments) that have been posted in this blog, let us all have open minds.

    bro. tim, it is as what G has explained, that there may have been some misunderstanding between what you said and what some of the brethren have understood. since the english language is not really our mother tongue, please excuse the errors in the words that were written.

    i, personally, am not sure if i wrote the correct grammar and composition. but i think you get my point.

    – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

    To God be all the glory, forever and ever!!!

    Amen!!!

  13. This is the judgment of the holy spirit inside me, Bro. eli judges by his own accord, in accordance to his mind just to prove his ill-conceived thought about God and his righteosness.

  14. This is the judgment of the holy spirit inside me, Bro. eli judges by his own accord, in accordance to his mind just to prove his ill-conceived thought about God and his righteosness.

    duh? this is not applicable to you, you don’t know what you are saying! you’re not even supplying it with a word from the scripture and you’re saying that you have the Holy Spirit……an evil spirit most likely!

    Mat 12:31 Therefore I say to you, All kinds of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven to men.

  15. Hey Nagsusuri, I just want to confirm your stand like what you said and I quote “judging is wrong” as you have posted in post #14. My question is DO YOU REALLY ACCEPT AND SOLIDLY CONFIRM YOUR STAND THAT JUDGING IS WRONG? please answer Nagsusuri.

  16. Is it hypocrite manner if you call the womanizer as honorable, the theives as excellency or call the deceiver as reverrend and holy?

    Definitely, GOD dont like that. Real Christians meaning Christ followers, obeying Jesus Christ commandments can judge those wrongdoers. We can judge according to the righteosness.

  17. Hey kj2, you mean all those Bible verses that Bro. Eli cited here in these article are all but NONSENSE to you since you still have the nerve to say and I quote you:”Bro. eli judges by his own accord, in accordance to his mind just to prove his ill-conceived thought about God and his righteosness.” and you still have the nerve to say and I quote:”duh? this is not applicable to you, you don’t know what you are saying! you’re NOT EVEN SUPPLYING IT WITH A WORD FROM THE SCRIPTURE and you’re saying that you have the Holy Spirit……an evil spirit most likely!”.
    You know what kj2, BIG LIARS LIKE YOU DOES NOT HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT INSIDE THEM. Want to have a biblical proof? Lets read what is written in the book of Proverbs chapter 6 verses 16 to 19 “These six [things] doth
    the LORD hate: yea, seven
    [are] an abomination unto
    him: A proud look, a LYING
    TONGUE, and hands that shed
    innocent blood,An heart that deviseth
    wicked imaginations, feet
    that be swift in running to
    mischief, A FALSE WITNESS [that]
    SPEAKETH LIES, and he that
    soweth discord among
    brethren.”
    HOW THEN WOULD THE GOD OF THE BIBLE GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SOMEONE LIKE YOU WHO IS A BIG LIAR IF GOD HATES LIARS! HOW CAN YOU HAVE THE NERVE TO SAY THAT “you’re NOT EVEN SUPPLYING IT WITH A WORD FROM THE SCRIPTURE and you’re saying that you have the Holy Spirit……an evil spirit most likely!” WHEN BRO. ELI ACTUALLY SUPPLIED 19 BIBLICAL VERSES IN THIS ARTICLE ENUMERATELY(KJ2 COUNT THIS!):
    1. Jeremiah 17:9-10
    2.Matthew 7:1-5
    3. Romans 2:21-22
    4. John 7:24
    5. 1 Corinthians 6:1-5, 9-10
    6. 1 Corinthians 5:3
    7. James 4:11-12
    8. Leviticus 5:1
    9. 1 Corinthians 13:4, 6
    10. Romans 1:32
    11. Isaiah 58:1
    12. Titus 1:13
    13. 1 John 2:15-16
    14. John 16:8
    15. Acts 13:8-10
    16. Acts 9:22, 29
    17. Ephesians 6:12
    18. 2 Corinthians 10:4
    19. Matthew 23:23

    THEN YOU WILL HAVE THE NERVE TO SAY THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKS IN YOU BECAUSE YOU SAID AND I QUOTE:”This is the judgment of the holy spirit inside me”.
    YOU ARE MAKING A FOOL OUT OF THE READERS OF THIS BLOG KJ2!!!!!

    LIAR!!!!!

  18. to nagsusuri,

    JUDGING is WRONG???

    answer this questions with your consience…

    1)If you see your whole family MASSACRED infront of you,and you have the chance to pass JUDGEMENT on the MURDERER inside the court,which would you choose?…

    a)Pass JUDGEMENT to the man according to his crimes to prevent him from inflicting more to others.

    b)Say to the judge to let the man go FREE.

    2)If you have caught a servant STEALING from his master,what would you do?…

    a)Report the incident to the master so the servant would be punished as to set an example for those who might do the same.

    b)Go on with your life and pretend that you saw nothing and just smile at the servant whenever you meet him.

    3)If you saw your 10yrs. old kid drinking “booze” and having “pot session” with his friends,and you confronted him saying,”Stay away from your friends,they are “BAD” examples!!!”,and your kid replied,”who are you to “JUDGE” my friends of being “BAD” examples?!!!All we ever did was have a GOOD time?!!!what would you do then?….

    a)punish your kid and let him see what happens to people who’s live are destroyed by alcohol abuse and drug addiction.

    b)Let your kid be and let him enjoy sniffing the “GOOD STUFF” and drinking “BOOSE” with his friends.What harm could it do?they’re just kids,enjoying their youth and having a “GOOD” time.

    So which was more rightfull to do?…
    A?…or…B?
    to JUDGE?…or…not to JUDGE?…

  19. to a_judge,

    This is the “JUDGEMENT” of the “HOLY SPIRIT” inside me…

    -That you have “JUDGED” Bro. Eli by your “OWN” accord,not by the “HOLY SPIRIT”.

    -In accordance with your “ILL-CONCIEVED” thoughts on your “POLLUTED” and “CORRUPTED MIND”.

    -“MALIGNING” his name without even “MENTIONING” any “VALID ARGUMENTS” which you claims “HIS” ill-concieved thoughts about God’s righteousness…

    YOU THINK THAT YOUR “IDEAS” ARE MORE “CORRECT” AND THAT YOU ARE “GUIDED” BY THE “HOLY SPIRIT”???

    I DOUBT IT…

    There may be a “SPIRIT” inside you…
    but I’m sure that it’s not the “HOLY” kind…

    If you really “BELIEVE” on what you “CLAIMS” to be…
    then stop “TALKING” like a “WOMAN” and start “FIGHTING” like a “MAN”!!!(if you are…)

    Let’s see if that “SPIRIT” inside of you was really “HOLY”…
    or just “PRETENDING” to be…

  20. to nagsusuri,

    you said…
    “judging is wrong”

    “nagsusuri” means “Looking for answer”…

    You were not really “looking for answer”…
    because you have already a “preconcieved” answer on your head…

    you know what I hated the most?…
    People “PRETENDING” to be what they’re “NOT”…

    ARE YOU TOO “ASHAMED” TO TELL WHO AND WHAT YOUR REAL COLORS ARE?…
    IF YOU THINK THAT YOUR “FAITH” WAS TRUE AND CAME FROM GOD,YOU SHOULD STAND PROUD AND FIGHT IN THE NAME OF YOUR “CHURCH”…

    NOT HIDING AND PRETENDING TO BE OF SOMETHING YOUR NOT!!!

  21. first of all thanks to G, you give me some courage to operate this key board again.

    to a_judge
    it seems you got a misleading A.K.A “a_judge” you’re out of context.
    Tell me if you know this > Mathew 5:43.

    to nagsusuri
    do you know how to love?

    Friends, a_judge and nagsusuri,
    let us listen to Bro. Eli just like Bro Tim’s doing..
    if not you belong to the opposite side .. well its up to you which side.

    Bro. Eli, we miss you so much. thank you very much for the heavenly love and for all the things that is in me now.

    TO GOD BE GLORY

  22. Pathfinder,

    I see where you are coming from but your example doesn’t hold water. God says that He judges the heart. And while you may see people do things, you have evidence for that judgement, but when it comes to people’s hearts you are getting into a little bit more of a difficult process. Now don’t think I do not agree that in certain situations that judgement is okay, I am merely saying your example doesn’t answer Nagsusari at all.

    AND KEEP IN MIND, that we are supposed to do everything in love and with humility… That is probably what more people have issue with when they hear the title of this blog. I trust Brother Eli and agree with the majority of what he says, but you know that the title of this blog was meant to get some responses.

    I pray you are having a good day and that the Lord is blessing you continually.

  23. to a_judge,
    @ #18

    You are not really a judge as you claim. I dare you to prove it!!
    you are a BLATANT LIAR. This is really you at John 8:44.

    you are simply justifying that this blog is truly inspired by
    God. “where there is judgment there is wickedness.”
    “you are one of satan’s spy who crept unawares”

    so just enjoy what you really want to do in this lifetime.
    your time will end very soon. we will see you at the finals!!!

  24. to nagsusuri:

    you said that judging is wrong, you cited some verses as basis of your assertion.

    John 8:15
    You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one.

    hope that you did not intentionally neglect the succeeding verse, let’s continue reading.

    John 8:15-16(KJV)
    Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

    And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

    Jesus said He judge no man but on the succeeding verse He said “and yet if I judge…”, isn’t He judging?

    so the first verse that you used doesn’t really prove that judging is wrong.

    you missed the verse that bro. eli mentioned in the article:

    Joh 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

    isn’t it that it came from the same person who said what’s written on John 8:15?

    you missed what Jesus really want to say.

    those people whom Jesus is speaking with in John 8:15 are judging according to man’s standard or according to the flesh. anyway that’s how we human usually do, for it is written:

    1Sa 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

    it is true that there are things that are beyond our sight as men (such as things of the heart). it is true also that those things will be judged by God as Jeremiah 17:9-10. but it is equally true that there are things that we can see like someone committing adultery, gambling, doing vices to mention few. are we not going to do anything about it if these things were done by our bretheren in Christ? it is written:

    1Co 5:11
    But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

    1Co 5:12
    For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

    1Co 5:13
    But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

    aren’t we supposed to judge? but of course there are boundaries, there are jurisdictions that we have to put in mind. Christians can only judge inside their God given jurisdiction as 1 Cor 5:12 clearly states.

    how i wish i can explain it to you as clearly when bro. eli explained it to us.

    you can ask this personally on bro. eli’s podcast.

    peace

  25. wheew!! whatta a very prudent way of explaining that issue.. i sweated a lot reading this blog although my room is airconditioned.. good job but long way to go. there’s so many people in the world that need your biblically inspired teachings.. more power dude!!

  26. kj2 or a_judge wake up. WE DO KNOW BRO. ELI MORE THAN YOU. All I wanna say is wake up…there still time to search and prove whose on the right track.

    YOUR WORDS IN THIS BLOG SHOWS WHAT YOU ARE AND WHO YOU ARE.

  27. To Tim Kurek,

    You are RIGHT when you say that “GOD judges the HEART”.I certainly believe and follows it.I never JUDGED on something or someone that I have no knowledge of.
    My comment was in reaction to what nagsusuri’s “conclusion” on his post.
    It say’s…
    “JUDGING is WRONG”…

    “JUDGING” itself,was never “WRONG”.Why?It’s a part of our daily lives.
    “JUDGEMENT” is a part of our day to day activities.You use JUDGEMENT on what time your going to wake up,to what brand to use on your toiletries,on what to have on your breakfast,on what to wear,on what discipline to employ your children,to sum it all up,we use JUDGEMENT on all ASPECT of our lives.

    On Genesis,when GOD brought forth the animals to Adam,didn’t GOD used Adams “JUDGEMENT” on what to be the “name” of each animals?

    So if someone tells me that“JUDGING is WRONG”,That person is “IGNORANT” on what he was saying.

    Now if you’ll tell me that “JUDGING PEOPLE THRU THEIR HEARTS ARE WRONG”,Then I’ll say,”AMEN to that!!!”

    Those who “LACK JUDGEMENT” are…
    -MACHINES…
    -MENTALLY ILL…
    -BABES…
    -HYPOCRITES…
    If you’re not “one” of any of these,surely you’ll have a “SOUND JUDGEMENT”.

    JUDGING the “TRANSGRESSIONS” of others is an act of “LOVE” itself.For the “TRANSGRESSOR” to feel “HUMILITY”,for them to realize their “WRONG DOINGS”.

    There are two options;
    A)Tell the person of his transgression,and you are doing “Gods will”… Isaias 58:1

    B)Don’t tell the person of his transgression,and you are an “accessory” to his “sins”…Ezekiel 3:20/Ezekiel 33:8

    So it’s up to your “JUDGEMENT” to CHOOSE which was the right thing to do.

    Why do you think this Blog/Site was established on the first place?
    Why would Bro.Eli risk his life spreading this “GOOD NEWS” that was “HATED” by many?
    Why would he even dare to CHOOSE to live a life full of “PERSECUSIONS”?

    The simple answer ; “TO DO GODS WILL”…

    For the people would know which side to “CHOOSE”…

    I call Heaven and earth to record today against you. I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore, “choose life”, so that both you and your seed may live ,

    Deuteronomy 30:19

    I thank you for your sincerity and being straight forward.You must escuse my English and grammar because I only have a “limited supply” of it.

  28. Deeperishi,

    bros! i’m not against bro. eli and never will I refute the him.

    like i said in my post #30, my post on #19 is a reply from post #18 from a_judge.

    kindly read the previous posts. SsD

  29. Nagsusuri,

    In regards to your name Nagsusuri, a tagalog word, to apply it in action, you will not finish something or accomplish something if you’re lacking judgement. If you will finish something without judgement or necessary solid decision, you’ll find your output like a building without foundation.

    Keep on listening to bro. Eli and reading his blogs with open mind and heart and you will be enlightened with God’s help.

  30. Anyone with an open mind will understand the clear points on this issue. Bro. Eli has made it clear. To judge a person based on your OWN standards is wrong. But to judge a person and his actions based on the standards given by God in the Bible, that’s right. Technically, it is not you who will render the judgment. Therefore, judgment – in this case – is sanctioned by God’s commandments and teachings.

    Bro. Eli, we certainly miss you very much. I miss every moment of your teaching in person. When you’re broadcasting and you’d want me to stay with you. When everyone else had gone and you wanted someone lowly like me to keep you company. I did my best to carry a stimulating conversation. I miss the days when you’d ask me to sing for you. When you’d teach me (one-on-one) in your room, in the car (on the way to a Bible Expo), etc.

    I was naive and shy then. I wasn’t sure if I spent those moments wisely. I wasn’t sure if my reactions were correct and if I treated you right. I wish I had taken advantage of the time when you were just a few inches away. I am sorry that I failed you and for not meeting God’s expectations from me. I wish I could make it up…

    May God take care of you always and bless the ministry through and through.

  31. to rob,greetings!

    lucky for you to have met Bro.Eli in person.Are you still “SEEKING” or you have found “HOME”?

  32. the word “judging”, “to judge” have lots of meaning depending on how people used it.

    by the way, nagsusuri failed to understand that when he said “JUDGING IS WRONG” – he is already judging right? isn’t it tantamount tha what he/she is doing is wrong? how can you convince someone when you are contradicting yourself? that is logically speaking.

    it might have been a little convincing if you said “that’s your opinion and here’s mine….” – in that way you’re not judging (correct me if i am wrong).

    need not to say more, bro eli explained it best.

    ciao!

  33. Judging is wrong if you do it on your own, but God in all his power and wisdom can judge by using and or inspiring someone to do it, most especially HIS own messenger or preacher like Bro Eli. For all we know, judging might even save a person from sinning further and it might just be the way to bring a person back to GOD. Among brethrens we often refer to it as greeting someone with a HOLY KISS with the intention and hope of correcting a mistake. Follow what Bro Eli said before judging others though, lest we judge others when we are just as guilty or even worst than others. Thank you Bro Eli for many more revelations. GLORY TO GOD ALMIGHTY.

  34. According to nagsusuri, “judging is wrong… by judging others you are trying to be GOD yourself. ONLY GOD can judge other people”.

    To say “judging is wrong” is already an act of JUDGING. Also, to say that those who judges others are “trying to be GOD” themselves is an act of JUDGING OTHERS.

    Defend yourself, nagsusuri.

  35. To Nagsusuri;

    Just keep on seeking the truth… Judge a righteous judgment “nagsusuri”… Do not close your heart and ears to your own belief and stand… God gave you a “mind” because as “MAN”, you’re capable to think, to test, to examine and to “judge” of the things you put unto your faith. As the best thing for you to do is, read again the blog of bro. Eli and examine each words of it. Put it again under of your proper examination.

    1Th 5:21 [Prove all things;] hold fast that which is good.
    1Th 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

    May God help you….. To God be the Glory!

  36. To Whom It May Concern,

    The Words of God are judgements in themselves, the only difference is to whom or for whom they are addressed. Thanks and regards Bro Eli keep it up.

  37. To whom it may concern,

    John 7:24 says Judge not according to the appearance,but judge righteous judgement.
    So this a commandment to the Christians to judge righteous judgement.And Proverbs 8:8-9 says All the words of my mouth are in righteousness:there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
    With these two verses alone we can say it is not wrong to judge as long as your judgement came from the righteousness of God which is His words.
    Thanks be to God.
