1 Timothy 6:3-5
If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
Hey, Paul what do you really think about false teachers? I mean for goodness sake, quit beating around the bush and give us your thoughts! Aren’t you glad God’s inspired writers were not mush-mouthed politically correct wimps? Aren’t you glad the writers of Scripture were not afraid to speak out about the things that were dangerous to solid biblical belief?
Let’s clear this up. Being judgmental is when you judge the thoughts and intentions of a person’s heart. I am judgmental when judge what I cannot see. But I am not being judgmental when I hold a person’s words against the word of God and determine they don’t match up. I am not being judgmental when I hold a person’s actions against the word of God and determine they are in contradiction. I am not being judgmental when I hold a person’s belief system up to the light and see it is contrary to Scripture.
It is time for Christians to make strong judgments on what is being taught over the television, radio, and bestsellers. And for goodness sake, when what you hear and see miss the mark of God’s word—make a judgment. Don’t be robbed of the truth by a person who is “conceited and understands nothing.”
