Note to Self:

We judge others-criticize, nit-pick, nag, attack, condemn-because we literally play God. This is heinous. [The Bible says] “There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy; but who are you to judge your neighbor?” Who are you when you judge? None other than a God wannabe. In this, we become like the Devil himself (no wonder the Devil is mentioned in James 3:15 and 4:7). We act exactly like the adversary who seeks to usurp God’s throne and who acts as the accuser of the bretheren. When you and I fight, our minds become filled with accusations: your wrongs and my rights preoccupy me. We play the self-righteous judge in the mini-kingdoms we establish. – David Powlison
