Final Judgment


Old Testament

Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully.

Proverbs 28:5

New Testament

If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

James 2:3-5

Do not judge and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Luke 6:37

Food for Thought

Judgment

Few days back, I was reading story of a man who killed his child since he had suspicion that she was an illegitimate child and product of sin. Later on, it was confirmed through tests that the man was the real father of the deceased child. The man judged and punished his own child for no fault of her. One of the main causes of crime is that the people become judgmental and react impulsively. During training, one of my friends has to disguise as a poor street hawker. He told me that while disguising as a menial street hawker, first time in his life he released that how badly people behave with poor people. We normally judge other from cloths, cars, looks, rank, status, family background, residence, furniture, language, cast, creed so on so forth. Our bias, prejudice, preconceived ideas and beliefs may lead us to illogical decisions, a terrorist kill hundreds thinking that victims deserved to be killed; a suicide bomber blasts himself thinking he would land in paradise right after his death and a guard kills an outspoken Governor thinking he is a Pagan. Holy Bible teaches us not to judge, because our judgment may be imperfect and may lead to wrong outcome rather Bible teaches us to focus on forgiving others.

May God Bless Us All
