What Does Jesus Mean When He Says We Should Not Judge?

Judging in the Bible has more to do with what you do after you tell the truth. It’s not whether you tell the truth. It’s what you do next (YouTube).

New Southern Baptist Convention president J.D. Greear clarifies a common misunderstanding regarding Jesus’ famous phrase “Judge not, that you be not judged.” Jesus put more value on relationships and loved us despite of what we did. Many times people interpret judgment as weighing in with an opinion, but if that’s the case, Greear says Jesus did that and commanded us to as well. Rather, he says, “Judging in the Bible has more to do with what you do after you tell the truth. It’s not whether you tell the truth. It’s what you do next.” Check out his video.
