Judging Sinners (Modernism Part 54)


Today’s reading: 1 Corinthians 6:1-11

There are those modernists in our Church hierarchy who say that they cannot judge others. As an example, one speaking to a practicing homosexual said of that person, “Who am I to judge?”

Well, in today’s reading, Paul says that we can and are supposed to judge others. He says, “Do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world?” (v.2a). Even further he says, “Do you not know that we will judge angels?” (v.3a). By this Paul means that we can gauge or judge a particular situation and pronounce judgment on its righteousness.

And so we judge the objective situation. We of course do not judge the internal motivations of a person. One could be doing objective wrongdoing but not be subjectively in sin. For example, a woman forced into prostitution does a sinful act but does not sin, because she has no full consent to the act.

The modernist pastor who refuses to judge the objective action of a sinner is committing injustice. Injustice to the sinner, because he is not given proper guidance and so remains in his sin. Injustice to God, because as a pastor he is to take care of God’s people, and he does not when he allows them to remain in sin. Injustice to others, who will be misled into thinking that a sinful act is not sinful after all.

Paul says, “Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor sodomites …. will inherit the Kingdom of God.” (v.9-10). Today’s culture has produced many of these sinners. The Sexual Revolution has brought immorality and grave disorder in the sexual lives of people. This is especially true for homosexuals.

So these grave sinners will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Neither will the modernist pastors who commit injustice and help keep them in their sin, by refusing to judge.
