Who Are You to Judge?: Learning to Distinguish Between Truths, Half-truths and Lies

( 2 )

Overview

A church that has made its peace with the world can no longer affect it! As 21st century Christians, we have settled down to a complacent form of faith that demands very little of us, and thus makes very little impact on the world. When secular values infiltrate the church, we accept them without a twinge of conscience and congratulate ourselves on our tolerance. We believe that we no longer have the right to challenge secular trends and decisions, in or out of the church. Erwin Lutzer looks at today's world, and...

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

Nothing is more timely or more needed than the subject Dr. Lutzer addresses in this book.  The crying need of the church today is for discernment--the ability to recognize truth and distinguish it from error.  Who Are You to Judge? reminds us that truth is important, and (contrary to the spirit of our age) real truth is not merely a matter of subjective individual opinion.  May Dr. Lutzer's own obvious passion for the sure truth of Scripture prove contagious among readers.
-John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church

This book is a treasure of Biblical wisdom.  It will equip the reader with desperately needed discernment for our time.
-Dr. R. C. Sproul, Chairman and President, Ligonier Ministries

Erwin Lutzer has a keen eye for the many dangers modern Christians face in the world.  He brings a clear headed and pastoral approach to controversial issues and does so with a deep concern.  This is a much needed book.
-John H. Armstrong, President, Reformation & Revival Ministries, Carol Stream, IL

Read an Excerpt

If we ever needed instruction on judging, it is today! What, then, did Jesus mean when He said, "Do not judge, or you too will be judged" (Matt. 7:1)? To put I briefly, He was teaching that we should not make Pharisaical judgments. We are not to be Pharisees, who loved to judge and therefore judged the wrong things; or even if they did make right judgments, made them for the wrong reasons. They exhibited a "holier than thou" tone in everything they did and said. We could say that Jesus is warning us, "Don't become a Pharisee, but do make righteous judgments." How can we be guarded from Pharisaism on the one hand and mindless gullibility on the other? How do we know what should be judged and how judgments are to be made? What are the parameters to guide us? These are questions that must be addressed. Keep in mind that the word judge means to exercise discernment; at other times is can mean to condemn; and sometimes both ideas are present. But clearly Jesus is not teaching that all judging is wrong. Judging, or discernment, lies at the heart of Christian living.

    In today's world too often we "the church" are silent, to our shame. As Billy Graham stated years ago "America will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah" True tolerance is knowing what to tolerate and not tolerating that which we should not. Mr Lutzer explains simply how to make those Godly judgement choices and live it out (out loud.)
