What most people fail to realize (because they dont read the famous "judge not" verse in it's context) is that a few verses down Jesus calls some people "dogs and pigs". And also in this context Jesus judges judging!We are to judge with righteous judgment, not fleshly hypocritical judgement... which is what we are generally prone to doing.I wrote an article about this on my blog, I may post it here sometime. I was amazed at the positive response I received... I thought it would be more negative. Scripture taken in context makes sense. Scripture taken out of context causes confusion, which is why there are so many questions surrounding the "judge not" verse... the second most quoted verse in the Bible right behind John 3:16... and the first most "wrenched out of context" verse.Krispy
You did the right thing. The hypocrites will accuse you of being judgemental. He was judged by his own words and you just played them back for him. You weren't judging his heart, but his words. And you weren't judging. You were calling attention to him speaking about the Lord and cursing at the same time. You offended his pride and he actually judged you.
admire you for speaking up - there are many so-called Christians who will defend the use of profanity in speech. God bless you and keep you and make his face shine upon you and give you peace...
