When people claim “Don’t judge me,” is in the Bible, they’re not wrong, but they don’t necessarily have the context right, says Life.Church’s Craig Groeschel.
“(This) is probably the number-one most quoted Bible verse by non-Christians and one of the more popularly quoted verses by Christians,” Groeschel says.
He’s referring to Matthew 7:1-2: “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged. And with the measure you use, it will be measured again for you,” Jesus Himself says.
“The only way I’ve ever seen someone say it is with attitude,” Groeschel says. “… I’m going to argue this is one of the most pervasive values in culture today—tolerate everything, every kind of behavior, every kind of belief system. You have no right to say if something is right or wrong. Do not judge or you will be judged.”
But the verse is not a license for a flesh free-for-all.
