Only God can judge?

I hear numerous people misquote the Bible when it comes to judging.  There is so much confusion on this subject and it really is an important one to get right.

For those who always quote, “Do not judge lest you be judged.”  What about the scripture that says, “The spiritual man makes judgment about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment…”? Wait!  I thought only God can judge?  I thought we weren’t suppose to judge?

You know what’s interesting?  Usually the ones who misquote this scripture are guilty.  Wait!  Everyone who quotes this scripture is guilty!

Now what?

Father God, I do not ever want to misrepresent you, but I know that I do.  Send your Holy Spirit to live in me, and give me the mind of Christ in all that I do.  Thank you, Jesus, that you give us an answer to our guilt.   In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
