2Cor 11:13; For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.
v14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
v15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.
Psa 145:8; The Lord is merciful, compassionate and while He waits patiently demonstrating His unfailing love....
Mal 4:1-3; NET "For indeed the day is coming, burning like a furnace, and all the arrogant evildoers will be chaff. The coming day will burn them up," says the LORD who rules over all. "It will not leave even a root or branch.
v2 But for you who respect my name, the sun of vindication will rise with healing wings, and you will skip about like calves released from the stall.
v3 You will trample on the wicked, for they will be like ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing," says the LORD who rules over all.
We are presently in a study of satan's cosmic that is a system of demonic thinking that has become the basis of the thinking of the entire human race since the fall in the Garden of Eden separated from God in the darkness of spiritual death that is comprised of the lies and deceit of demonic arrogance. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
Last time we were noting some of the false evil speculations and judging that comes from arrogant polarized fragmentation as described in Rom 14:8-10,13-17;
v8 For if we live, we live for the Lord; if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.
v9 For this purpose, Christ died and lived, that He might be Lord both of the dead and the living.
v10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we shall all stand before the Judgment Seat of God.
v13 Therefore, stop judging each other, but instead determine not to put an obstacle (a stumbling block) in a brother's way."
v14 I know and am convinced in the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean in itself; still, it is unclean to the one who considers it unclean.
v15 For if your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy by your food someone for whom Christ died.
v16 Therefore do not let what you consider good be spoken of as evil.
v17 For the kingdom of God does not consist of food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Legalism is a distraction to the Christian life. Judging, maligning, and slandering other believers is the function of self-righteous arrogance and legalism from the moral arrogance of polarized fragmentation.
Judging others is blasphemy, because it interferes with the disciplinary function and grace policy of Jesus Christ that comes from the application of the problem solving devices starting with rebound under God's grace policy.
This is why judging another believer brings judgment on the legalist. Matt 7:1-2; "Judge not, that you be not judged.
v2 For the manner in which you judge, you will be judged. And by what measure you measure out judgment, it will be measured back to you."
When believers make the decision to live in the cosmic system they take on the entire arrogance complex with the result they become preoccupied with the unhappiness of inordinate ambition and competition in the devil's world, instead of the happiness of God and occupation with Christ.
