Default Christians Judge People

Why do most Christians judge people?

not all Christians but most do. actually if you are Christian you are not supposed to judge.


but in all honesty I have seen people from every belief system do it.

They can if they want. I myself judged (Pauline) Christianity, and found it wanting. I still like several aspects of Catholicism, but mainstream Protestant Christianity is probably the single most fertile breeding ground for vicious mental illness that I've ever observed, other than perhaps third wave feminism. Islam might be worse, but I wouldn't know because I refuse to go near it.

Truthfully I have no issue with people judging others, all of us do it all the time. The issue I have is the false perception of condemnation that they then apply to those they judge less than themselves. Well I say it's false in origin though one can not say it's false in the fact so many acts are committed in its name.

Honestly, it's not just Christians hun. It's human nature and we have allowed ourselves to be convinced our way (be it whatever that may be) is the only right way. If you talked to people who are strong in their religion, they will probably judge you, no matter what religion that is. It is one of the falsies of human nature. Try not to let it get to you. Christians are just a little more vocal about what they believe and have been taught that anyone who thinks otherwise is going to hell and needs to be saved.

I was just being curious that's all. Anyway Christians do judged harshly for a sin you committed against God.

Oh yes, don't get me wrong, they will judge you and some will give you the fire and brimstone speech! I have a woman I work with, very sweet and loving, but I don't tell her my path because she is devoutly Christian mans she would believe me a devil worshiper. I think its so engrained into them that they can't help it. I still have thoughts that almost make me panic that say I'm going to hell for what I believe. And then I shake it off lol. But it's that deeply placed into my brain

Yes, it's part of the reason I started stepping away from the church years ago, but unfortunately most organized religions are judgmental, their way is the only way. I've encoun that with pagans/wicc and/ect as well

Yes I feel the same way when I give up Christianity and become Taoist. They always have so many rules to obey by the bible and don't want you to break them. And they're also very judgemental.
