Unlearned Saying & Objection – “Who are you to judge?”

English – Spanish

A reader sent us this note:

who has made a judge over this people? don’t u know satan is the accuser of brethren? There even a ???????? about u.

Our reply:

We know Satan is the accuser of the brethren, but apparently you don’t, Satan. That means your day of judgment is here.

As for those we expose, they aren’t brethren. They are your sons and brothers, not ours or Christ’s.

Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk

Victor’s comments:

I considered that there can be some we’ve posted who are brethren in need of correction, but then I recalled the words of the Lord, “Who are My brothers and sisters and mother? They who do the will of My Father” (Matthew 12:47-50). All the people involved in men’s works and preaching false doctrine aren’t doing His will.

If God has given us to take the beam out of our eye, don’t we see clearly to remove the sliver in our brother’s eye, if he is a brother?

But countless professing believers condemn us as if we accuse brethren rather than judge them and expose the wicked. That’s because they’re doing the very thing they accuse us of doing – accusing those who truly are Christ’s brethren, doing the will of God. Jude wrote of these, and of our calling to declare their true state of enmity with God:

Jude 1:14-16 MKJV
(14) And Enoch, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied to these, saying, Behold, the Lord came with myriads of His saints,
(15) to do judgment against all, and to rebuke all the ungodly of them concerning all their ungodly works which they ungodly did, and concerning all the hard things ungodly sinners spoke against Him.
(16) These are murmurers, complainers, leading lives according to their lusts. And their mouth speaks proud things, admiring faces for the sake of gain.

Now, 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 says that God judges those that are without. So Jonah shouldn’t have gone to Nineveh? Isaiah, Jeremiah, and other prophets shouldn’t have prophesied against other nations? John the Baptist shouldn’t have said anything against Herod?

“Don’t judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24 HNV).

A reader gives her “2 cents worth,” and in return is given that which is of inestimable worth, far beyond the price of rubies or gold, as the Scriptures declare.
