Before You Pick Up the Gavel

Before You Pick Up the Gavel

Passage: Matthew 7:1-6

Preacher: Derrick McCarson

Series: Kingdom Now

Category: Sermon on the Mount


Jesus spoke to us about the folly of a critical, judgmental attitude. In fact, I would say that Matt. 7:1 has become the most popular Bible verse in our culture today. It’s the unbeliever’s favorite trump card against Christians who speak out against hot-button issues like same-sex marriage, abortion and religious pluralism. We’ve all heard the objection, “Well, who are you to judge?” Ironically, this verse which the world loves the most, they understand least. Never has a passage of Scripture been so utterly abused, misunderstood and misapplied as this one.
