Billy Graham On 'Do Not Judge:' I Don't Think It Means What You Think It Means

"Do not judge."

That phrase from Luke 6:37 is a favorite for people confronting Christians who condemn sin — especially homosexuality. It's a bomb drop intended to shame Christians into silence and end the argument with a deafening boom.

But according to Billy Graham, that should only be the start of a conversation for a Christian and not the end.

This week Graham was asked the question: "I don't think it's up to us to judge who is religious and who isn't. I have my own beliefs, and I get upset when someone tries to question me about them or make me believe the same way they do. Didn't Jesus say somewhere that we shouldn't judge others?"

Graham replied, "This doesn’t mean, however, that we’re supposed to be indifferent to right or wrong, or be unaware of the dangers that come from immoral decisions or false beliefs. Nor does it mean we should overlook our own sins. In fact, later in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus urges us to judge between true and false ways of living (which we do by seeing their results). He also commands us to be judges of our own sins — which may be far greater than those we see in others."

Then Graham made a hard-hitting remark back at the asker: "I can’t help but wonder, however, why you don’t want anyone to challenge your beliefs or even talk with you about them. Only you can answer this, of course — but is it because deep down in your heart and mind you’re unsure of your beliefs and doubt if you’re actually right?"

Do you think Graham is arguing this well from the Bible?
