Being Judgemental

I am new to MyLot and I have seen on here, that many people are very judgemental. It says in the Bible, 'Judge not , that ye be not judged', Matthew 7:1. Doesn't anyone pay any attention to this verse or is it they just do not care what God has put before us to follow? What is your opinion on this.

I think it's everyones right to be judgemental if they are happy to be judged themselves. Not everyone here is religious. Personally i don't care "what God has put before us" as i don't believe in him. I believe in people and to be honest the first thing you do when you see someone is judge them. You may not mean to but if you don't think you do, i think your in denial.

Base on your comment about you do not beleive in God. Do you beleive that there is a being that created you and the entire universe. Wither you beleive in him or not he exist and do love you very much. It is the same God that you do not beleive in woke you up this morning, give you the strenght and the ability to do what you are doing to earn a living. For it is God who gives you the power to get wealth. But why don't you beleive in God anyway? He is indeed wonderful and we all are created to worship Him. If you read John 1 verse 3 it says that "all things were made by him and for him(God),and without him(God)nothing was made that has been made."

As far as religion is concerned I try hard not to. But politics is a different story I fall very far short when it comes to politics. I guess its the way I was raised and things I have seen in my life but its hard to realise the world is going to be the world and nothing I can do to change it. I know God is the only one who can change the world but its still a very hard thing to accept.

Only GOD is the best judge and no one can know ,what are the intentions behind our acts.People who give away charity to get fame, it is sin.We can only make out a assessment of a person only and only ,if one is related, one is traveling with you, or one is doing some sort of business with you . in these three relation a person can make some conclusions about the other party .Still it is not final

I try not to be judgmental and consider emotional arguments to be more of a crux. I prefer to have a debate on facts, laws, or logic. Judging someone based on an opinion (mine or theirs), isn't a good thing. However, many people don't want to be corrected even if shown the way (legal, religious, etc), so its best to move on.
