For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.”
1 Corinthians 5:12-13
The author was talking about how we should be judging the people within the church, not the people outside the church. He goes on to say that we after judging, we need to purge for evil person from the church.
People always quote “judge not, lest ye be judged,” but this is saying that we need to judge other Christians. We should also be okay with getting rid of people who are evil among us who are unrepentant.
Dear Father, I pray that you will help me to have a judging and loving eye towards the people in your church. In Jesus name, amen.
