Why did Jesus say judge but also judge not?

Over the past few years, I have grown increasingly discontent with the organized Christian church system. Maybe it’s just me, but the terms showmanship and pep rally sometimes seem appropriate when referring to many of the church services and activities I have attended.

To be fair, I have contributed to this behavior myself; that was the model I was taught and the intent was honorable. But I know there is more. I know God is real. He talks to me.

So I now find myself chastised by this very insightful article this morning by Frank Viola:  Why did Jesus say judge but also judge not?
