I get so tired of the lie, repeated whenever someone wants to avoid the hard work of living by their convictions – or even having convictions – that we must not judge.

Where does Scripture make a blanket prohibition on judging?

Rather, it says to not judge with hypocrisy.

But we are, in fact, to judge …

With discernment.

Let’s not surrender Scripture to our own insecurities by distorting Scripture.

When we deny our obligation to discern, judge and stand against injustice, tyranny and evil, just like many others did in the Bible …

We become complicit with darkness.
