Letting God Be Judge
Recognizing the Impact of Ungodly Judgements and Dealing with Them
by Thomas J Sappington
The Bible’s teaching on ungodly judgements is desperately needed for the health and growth of the Church. The impact of ungodly judgements can be extremely damaging and far reaching in their effect. This unique book covers this important subject which the Bible speaks extensively about.
There is little that is more offensive and divisive than a person with a judgemental spirit. In order for us to move toward freedom and maturity in Christ, repenting of the ungodly judgements we have made against God, ourselves, and others, and breaking their power in our lives is critical. Judging others is simply incompatible with foundational principles in Jesus’ teaching and the teaching of His disciples.
This book will help:
- Those who want to restore relationships that have been damaged by the effects of judgements;
- Determine when we are using proper discernment in our relationships with others, and when we’re sitting in judgement on them;
- Believers who want to be able to believe in absolute truth and take a stand on a particular issue, but do so in a way that does not “judge” others in a negative sense;
- Counsellors and pastors who need to deal with the judgement their counselees have made in the past and continue to make. Discover how seeds of a judgement can be sown in a child’s life;
- Leaders involved in mentoring who want to avoid division made through judgements;
- Recognise the fruits of ungodly judgements.
