"This book is a treasure of biblical wisdom . . ." Dr. R. C. Sproul, founder, Ligonier Ministries
Can I judge without being judgmental?
We live in a world that tolerates everything but judgment. What we dont realize is that right judgment is the key to right living. Who Are You To Judge? is Lutzers word to a culture that hates being told how to live and to a church called to purity.
After explaining the difference between judging and being judgmental, Lutzer guides Christians in discerning various critical issues, including miracles, matters of doctrine, and godly engagement with entertainment and culture.
With a passion for biblical truth and intolerance for lies, Lutzer is compelling and gut-honest. Who Are You to Judge? calls us to not only embrace the truth, but also to live according to it, speaking the truth in love to a world so desperately in need of both.
"In his book, Who Are You To Judge?, Pastor Erwin Lutzer examines the need for discernment in todays church. Tackling everything from doctrine to dress, Lutzer explains the importance of a biblical approach to evaluating spiritual claims and relativistic culture. In a direct but diplomatic way, Pastor Lutzer addresses the failure to uphold the standard of truth in todays church and the ensuing consequences. This book is a call for believers to embrace wisdom and discernment without withholding love from those who are trapped in false doctrine or enticed by the latest trends in the culture.
Who Are You To Judge? clarifies and encourages wise choices in todays society without being judgmental. The authors down-to-earth approach makes this volume informative and accessible. Each chapter deals with a specific issue facing todays church and how to deal with it biblically. The first half of the book is more cohesive than the second half. Nevertheless, Who Are You To Judge? remains a helpful tool for Christians who seek to maintain a biblically sound worldview inside and outside the Church.
I was given a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review."

"Judgements are both necessary and needed. Our task is to make wise judgments in a nonjudgmental world.
We have heard it before; Who are you to judge? Only God can judge me. etc. etc. It can be difficult to have a conversation with others when sharing their need for salvation and the work of Christ on the cross. This read is for those who desire to share the Good News and to hold on to the firm foundation of the truth that makes way to the road less traveled. The definition of truth is exclusive and many ways does not lead to truth. Judgment is getting to the truth and keeping the truth. Judgment is how justice is displayed. We all define truth by what is wrong and what is right.
Jesus challenged the culture by understanding the culture. This book helps the Christian challenge themselves as well as the culture. Why it is important on both accounts. We must have a understanding of how the culture (the world) affects us. We can easily be intimated if we do not have a good understanding on the value of discernment. In not understanding, we can lose the effectiveness of the Gospel. The effectiveness is lost when we listen to the voice of Did God really say? When properly understood and the gospel is lived out, sacrifice becomes the culture of the church. The better of others to further the kingdom. It cannot be done with lies and without discernment. Truth becomes hard if it is not softened by love; love becomes soft if it is not strengthened by truth
The study is complete with what needs our discernments and why and the ultimate price for those discernments. It will strengthen your faith and ultimately allow you to love others truly.
A Special Thank You to Moody Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review."
