Thanks for returning to this series on “Judge Judge Judge” and my feeble attempt to understand a believers responsibility and right to make judgments.
Another purpose of this series is to understand the believers restrictions on judgement.
What can a Christian judge? How is he to judge? What is prohibited in the Christian life to judge. So many questions.
But that will have to wait for the next post.
In this post I am simply providing a table containing the Greek words I found associated with “judgement”.
In each of my following blog posts, I will select one of the words from this list, and consider some (or all) of the verses that include the related greek word.
In no manner will this be an exhaustive study but simply an attempt to consider this abused topic, and spur us all to better thinking on what it means to judge.
