What I do is not judge (that is God's job and I do not possess those keys), but what I will do is scope the scrips out and find out what the parameters are that God uses to judge individuals - and then families - and then nations. I am not bragging here - but I look for patterns, nail them down and then optimize the results. It is the engineer in me - EVERYTHING is optimized for best performance. When I put my mind to do something, I try to do it to win - best results and (hopefully) in as efficient a manner as is possible. When someone steps out of those bounds (including myself), I call them on it (if it affects me or others that I love and have stewardship over).
That is not being judgmental - that is doing my job. People can often misinterpret the command not to judge, with the command to NOT JUDGE UNRIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT. Those two things are two different animals. We HAVE to judge ALL the time - whether it is choosing a good lawyer, a good mechanic, a good place to work, a good handyman to fix stuff around the house, whether a teacher for our children is someone we want them spending 7 hours a day with - so many things. We do it ALL the time. It is called discernment - and it would be a complete joke to not use a little in life. No one would expect you not to.....
What we cannot do is judge someone's final judgment ("that person is going to hell", etc). We have to exercise compassion and utilize the same kind of ruler stick there, that we would want used on us. That is Christ's injunction for us.
So, when I kept saying over and over that "this nation is going to be judged" right before 9/11, I knew we had crossed a line (mostly in supporting the Clintons in their shenanigans), and I could feel an impending feeling of doom for this nation, collectively.
I feel it again, but at a grass-roots level. 15 years ago, it was more of a national thing - now I feel that almost no one is exempt, for we have all partaken of her sins (we all support the hellish agendas put out by the gads on one level or another). In other words, many of us turn a blind eye to what is going on. At the very least, it may be getting something for nothing and sucking from the teat of the beast when we could be working for our sustenance, it could be supporting unjustifiable wars because our son or husband is in the military - it could be a whole host of so many things that draw us in sympathetically to support the beast/whore and her works. One that I have tried to de-couple myself from is paying taxes to support it. I want the beast to die - it needs to; so I allow only the bare minimum I have to, to go towards the sustenance of it. I would that it were zero. I want NO money to pay for an abortion. NONE. That is the most heinous thing I can think of - just sick and twisted and wrong - almost no matter how you package it. No amount of sweetener makes it sweet - just bitter and repulsive - as it is.
Here is a little more on keys to proper judgment that I found on FB:
My sister shared something with me that she saw on the Nephite Explorer program yesterday (Sunday, July 24, 2016). It is by Bruce H. Porter from BYU Religious Studies.
He said: "Individual wickedness is going to be judged in the eternities. But the sins or iniquities of a nation needs to be judged in mortality. When it's judged in mortality then it's the nation that has to be punished. We're told in the New Testament that there is no forgiveness of sin without the shedding of blood. Individual sin can be forgiven because of the blood of Christ. But the sin of a nation, and the blood that has to be shed in their turn from the absence of God, is the blood of the citizens themselves. The nation suffers because of it, not the individual. Individual sin is judged in the hereafter. The sins of a nation have to be judged here, because there are no nations in the hereafter. We see the same thing here at Gettysburg – the blood that was spilt from both sides was from the sin of a nation that began to turn away from God. As President Lincoln talked about returning to God – and the men that he inspired felt the same way – there was a need to defend not just the principles of freedom, but the principles of deity. The principles that God had set to defend the rights that man has."
