To Condone means to accept and allow behavior that is considered morally wrong or offensive to continue.
To Pass Judgment means to criticize or condemn someone from a position of moral superiority with the power and means to punish or impose penalty.
When a born again faithful believer refuses to condone the sexual immoralities of homosexuality, lesbianism, fornication and adultery, it does not mean that we are passing judgment on the practitioners of these sexual sins nor does it mean that we hold ourselves morally superior to anyone.
We do not have a hell or a Heaven to place anyone in.
Christians cannot nor or we called to exercise the passing of judgment on anyone. We do not have the power or authority to excuse moral offences or impose penalty and enforce and execute punishment. But Yahweh Does! (1 Corinthians 6:9 and Ephesians 5:5-6)
Don’t get it twisted. We don’t pass judgement but the WORD and The SPIRIT judges us all. And the Saint of God who are full of the WORD and the SPIRIT judges all things righteously. (1 Corinthians 2:15-16)
Born again children of God are divinely instructed to expose sin and wickedness for what they are. (Ephesians 5:11)
However, the exposed and rebellious sinner likes to accuse us of passing judgment on them as if to do so is more egregious and vile than their offence against God.
The Devil Is A LIAR!
Don’t believe her lies.
Judgment is Yahweh’s prerogative alone and He alone has passed judgment on the guilty and the stubborn that refuse to repent of their sins and of their disobedience to HIS Eternal Ten Commandments and of their wicked sexual practices. (James 4:12)
As Saints of GOD and witnesses of His grace and mercy in CHRIST JESUS, we are simply carrying out our directive from God by exposing sin and its damnable result in the hope that sinners would repent and be saved from the wrath of God’s judgment – giving notice that GOD’S Judgment is final and hell is real.
