What did Jesus mean when he said “Don’t judge”?

Safest place

The Bible speaks about judging in different ways. 

What Jesus meant when he said, “Don’t judge” was that we should never judge a person’s soul. Someone’s spiritual situation before God is between that person and God alone. 

Jesus was not telling us to ignore the difference between right and wrong.  St. Paul said, “The spiritual man judges all things” –1 Corinthians 2:15.

It boils down to the old adage, “Love the sinner; hate the sin.”

Moral relativism hinders us from real love by making us indifferent.  It is simply not loving to sit back and never share the truth with those God has placed in our lives.

It can be difficult to do so in a loving manner, but we must prayerfully and humbly try.
