The Idol of Man's Personal Liberty
Today many say, “Don’t judge me!" So the guilty sinner cries. "It’s wrong to say it’s wrong,” they claim, because man's freedom is paramount, even to the denial of God's sovereign rule. To judge others in this day has become the most intolerable offense (Gen. 19:9). And men quote the Bible to defend their wickedness: “Judge not!” But when Jesus said, "Judge not lest ye be judged," He did mean we are to use His words to defend ourselves. Nor did He mean we are not to decry sin, not point out certain sins. No. The Bible does not say it’s wrong to say it’s wrong. The Bible says it’s wrong not to say it’s wrong (Acts 17:24-31; Romans 1:18-3:19; Titus 3:3; Eph. 2:1-3; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; Col. 3:5-9; Eph. 4:17-22; 2 Pet. 2:4-10; Jude 3-16).
