Christians should love, not judge, fellow people

I continue to be amazed at the actions and attitudes of supposed Christians.

It seems a lot of so-called Christians in the evangelical sect have almost but made themselves God. They speak so eloquently from their pulpits how much they love the sinner but hate the sin, while at the same time judging the sinner and all but crucifying him.

If your sermon is filled or tainted with hate, there will be no anointing. Judging is not our job.

Jesus said in Matthew 7, "judge not, lest ye be judged."

Further, take a look at these verses from Romans 2,

"2 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things."

Too often these condemning Christians are committing grievous sins themselves.

One of my favorite quotes from Mother Teresa, "If you judge people, you have no time to love them."
