Why we should not judge? | 为什么我们不该论断?


Would you buy a house if you were only allowed to see one of its room? Would you purchase a car if you were permitted to see only its tires or a tail-light? Would you pass judgment on a book after reading only a paragraph?

Nor would I?

Good judgment requires a broad picture. Not only is that true in purchasing houses, cars, and books, it is true in evaluating life. One failure does not make a person a failure; one achievement does not make a person a success.

The end of the matter is better than its beginning. We only have a fragment. Life's mishaps and horrors are only a page out of a grand book. We must be slow about drawing conclusions. We must reserve judgment on life's storms until we know the whole story.

"God alone, who gave the law, is the judge. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to judge your neighbor?" - James 4:12

Many of us are loose and careless with our mouth, unknowingly criticizing God's work. We judge, slander, criticize and discredit men whom God has called and anointed.

We should learn the wisdom from Rick Joyner who quotes:-

"Criticism is one of the ultimate manifestations of pride, because whenever we criticize someone else, we are assuming that we are superior to them. Pride brings that which any rational human should fear the most - God's resistance. "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble" (James 4:6)

When we criticize another Christian, we are actually saying that God's workmanship does not meet up to our standards -that we can do it better. When we criticize someone else's children, who take offense? The parents! There is no less true with God. When we judge one of His people, we are judging Him. When we judge one of His leaders, we are really judging His leadership. We are saying, in effect, that He does not know what He is doing with the leadership He is providing"

About critics, Kathie Walters put in bluntly: "Do what God wants you to do and stop judging ministries because you do not know how God works and you are not God."

为什么我们不该论断?

如果你只能看屋子里的一间房间,你会买下整间屋子吗?倘若你只可以看一辆车的轮胎或车尾灯,你会把车买下来吗?你阅读书籍时会不会在读了一个段落后就对整本书下定论?

我也不会。

良好的判断需要有广大的视野。这不只是在於购买房屋、汽车和书籍,在衡量生命时也是如此。一次失败不代表一个人完全失败;一项成就也不代表一个人全然成功。

事情的结局胜于开端。我们有的只是一小片段。生命里的不幸和j惊恐只不过是一本巨著的其中一页。我们在下结论时必须缓慢谨慎。我们对生命中的风暴要先保留不下定论,直到我们了解完整的故事。

『立法的,审判的,只有一位,就是那能拯救人,也能毁灭人的神;你这判断邻舍的,你是谁呢?』- 雅各书4:12

我们当中很多人言语过于随便和粗心,不自觉地批评了神的工作。我们论断、诽谤、批评和诋毁神所呼召和恩膏的仆人。

我们应该学习雷克·乔纳(Rick Joyner)的智慧,他说:

“批评是骄傲的终极表现之一,因为每当我们批评别人时,我们都假定自己比他们更优越。骄傲带来任何具理性人应该都最害怕的 - 神的阻挡。『神阻挡骄傲的人,赐恩给谦卑的人。』(雅各书4:6)

当我们批评另一位基督徒的时候,我们其实在说神的手艺达不到我们的标准 - 我们可以做得更好。当我们批评别人的孩子时,谁会被冒犯?家长 !  对神也是如此。当我们论断祂的一位子民时,我们是在论断祂。当我们论断祂的一位领导人时,我们其实在论断祂的领导。我们实际上等于说,祂所给予的领导表明祂不知道自己在做什么。”

关于批评,凯蒂沃尔特斯(Kathie Walters)坦言道:"做神要你做的事情和停止批评神的事工,因你不知道神如何工作,而且你不是神。"

Testimony of Polly Thian

When my husband asked me to join him for a visit to CKRM Saturday afternoon service in Ara Damansara PJU, I was rather reluctant for I had already attended far too many church meetings. Strangely, I went along anyway to seek healing for my long suffering from depression. My Husband, who had planted Churches, was very much intrigued by what he saw happening in CKRM, especially such a unique anointing the Lord has put on Pastor Paul Ang. It was on my second visit to CKRM when I received the holy laughter and my depression of 23 long years was miraculously healed. Praise the Lord for truly He who is mighty has done great things for me (Luke 1:49).

I was saved in 1978, at the age of 41 when a church elder came to my house to pray for my 8 years old son who was having a chronic ENT problem. Although I was saved and had become a Christian, the pressure of life soon proved to be too much for me to bear especially, for someone like me who was always timid and fearful of many things, partly due to my early childhood upbringing. I drifted in and out of depression. At times, I did not know whether to live or to die. In addition, Satan’s voice was tormenting me to commit suicide all the time. I even experienced the fear of losing my salvation. My husband and I had sought many avenues for healing but my depression persisted. All my family members were also truly burdened because of my depression problem.

The healing I received in CKRM has completely cured and liberated me from the misery of depression for 23 years. I thank God for this unspeakable joy of the Holy Spirit in me and I feel I am the happiest person on earth now. That was in the year 2010. Since then, the Lord has used me to help five persons with their problem of depressions. Praise Him for ever more. Amen!


The anointing of creative miracle in CKRM has also caused my hair to slowly turning to black (see photo).  The miracle of my white hairs turning black again is indeed an added bonus from the Lord because of my simple obedience of faithfully attending CKRM church service. I praise the Lord for all His marvellous works!
