Taught today that “do not judge” does not mean to never judge as so often believed. There is a wrong way and a right way to judge and who we are and aren’t to judge. So much damage had happened from incorrect judging but at the same time so much damage happens when we don’t judge correctly when we need to.
Had wonderful discussions after each gathering about how this applies to political views, progressive Christianity and theological drifts and personal things we have blinds spots we need help with from others. It shows the importance and need for local church community who knows Scripture.
Every single morning I now have these friends to greet me and spend time with as I start reading through the New Testament. They will be companions for the next 3 months and look forward to seeing them and spending time with them each morning.
