 Critical spirit

The Lord has broke the Chains of some very strong sins in my Life, Sins that had more power over me than I had strength, and I am very thankful and Greatful for that.

An area that is still in need of great improvement in my Life is in the area of having a critical spirit, I find it much harder to detect when it is springing up than other sins, because It often times disguises its self as a godly
discernment. And I believe that we need a lot of Godly discernment, But a critical spirit goes beyond that, it is pride and it robbes the Love out of our hearts for others and it robbes the peace of God from our hearts.

I'm in the same boat, brother. I'll be praying for you. Please pray for me about this.

In Jesus,
John

 Re: Critical spirit

Thank you for bringing this topic up or I should say this sin up.

Everyone who is anyone in the Christian faith will fall victim to this at some point in their lives anyone who denies this is fooling themselves.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

This is a tremendous subject. What scriptures speak about this sin in our lives. And exhortations that help encourage us to overcome this sin?

Amen brother to your last sentence! I offer another take on criticalness and that is the Lord has shown me that what “Lisa” has to say is worth nothing on the scales of eternity and that “my” opinion can and usually will only make matters worse.

It has been the Lord that has brought me to this place by having a few critical people in my life. I can’t fight criticalness with criticalness because my criticalness would have to be on a more grander scale to get their attention (i.e. meaner and more severe) and I just can’t go there; I must fight it with learning to keep my mouth shut IN LOVE (Christ’s love) and that Love is showing me the better way.

Now, am I perfect at this? Absolutely not!! But practice makes perfect one day, hopefully sooner than later! Praise God I now know which direction I’m heading and WHY I’m headed there... for the glory of the King, not what I think.

God bless you brother!

PS: I wanted to give God all the praise due His name for bringing me out of many entangling sins as well.
