In this lesson, we want to ask, “Is it biblical to judge?” Matthew 7:1 is a verse that is often used as a shot against Christians that try and practice biblical discernment. A Christian that might take a moral stance that is different from what our culture is currently holding may hear the response, “Don’t judge lest ye be judged.”
In lesson 2, we look at King Solomon who asked God for discernment. Then, we examined Hebrews 5:11-14 and considered the importance of discernment in determining our spiritual status.
In this lesson we explore the definition of biblical discernment.
In this lesson, we address the difficulties that come with being a biblical discerning Christian. To be discerning, one must be a student of God’s word and then must be willing to apply that to all situations no matter the personal cost.
As we discern there are several areas where we can go astray. There are traps that we can fall into. In this lesson, we are going to put up some warning signs for ourselves along the track of discernment in hopes that we won’t derail and fall into error in the future.
In lesson five we will look at the connection between biblical discernment and truth. If discernment is being able to tell truth from error and right from wrong then we must understand what truth is.
