Have you ever gotten the facts of a story wrong? Ever made a mistake in what you were thinking about someone or some thing? Have you ever heard a story that sounded true and even passed it along without knowing all the facts only to find out later that it wasn’t exactly true? Have you ever questioned someone’s motives or made judgments of people that were wrong? I guess you get where I’m going with this. We need to be very careful of making judgments about other people, ministries, and/or churches; because our judgments may be based on wrong assumptions and most of the time we don’t have the “rest of the story”.
In Acts 5:38-39 a man by the name of Gamaliel makes a very wise request of the religious leaders who were so opposed to the followers of Christ. He said: 38 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”
What’s the point? Be very careful of making judgments against another Christian, Ministry or Church because you may be in fact making judgments against (or fighting against) God.
