For the Bride: Pivotal Passages–2

Today, I share some passages which have led me to advocate the practice of non-judgment…

Ps 62:3-4
Ps 75:7. (and the host of related OT passages)
Mt 7:1
Mk 9:42
Acts 10:28
Romans 2:1-5
Romans 14:10
1 Cor 4:5
2 Cor 5:18-19
James 2:11
James 4:12

When we turn to the Christian tradition in a few weeks, we will see how immediately, deeply, and seriously the early Christians took the practice of non-judgment. We will see how we have deteriorated in living by this biblical admonition across the centuries, particularly today in our post-Enlightenment belief that we not only have the right, but the responsibility to be judgmental.

(If you do not have my book ‘For the Sake of the Bride’ on which these weekly writings are based, here is the Amazon link for it:
