11 Speak [katalaleo] not [me] evil [katalaleo] one of
another [allelon], brethren [adelphos]. He that speaketh evil [katalaleo] of his brother [adelphos],
and [kai] judgeth [krino] his [autos] brother [adelphos], speaketh evil [katalaleo]
of the law [nomos], and [kai] judgeth [krino] the law [nomos]: but [de] if [ei] thou judge [krino] the law [nomos], thou art [ei] not [ou] a doer [poietes] of the law
[nomos], but [alla] a judge [krites].KJV-Interlinear
11 Do not speak against one
another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother, or judges his brother,
speaks against the law, and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are
not a doer of the law, but a judge of it. NASB
The word for law, refers to the rules, mandates,
principles, and so forth by which truth and life are guided.This is not a reference to the Levitical Law.
A judge of the law, is one who sets himself up as a
critic, or evaluator, or one who questions of those rules and so forth.One who offers his personal views regarding
the pros and cons of the laws of God, and suggests or implies that there may be
room for interpretation, modification, or even improvement within them.
And when you commit a sin, when you speak ill against
another person, then you have placed yourself in the place of God, as a judge.
A judge is one who makes decisions based on the facts,
and God is the only one who has a complete set of facts for every situation
that has ever existed, or ever will exist.
Humanity has never had all of the facts on anything,
so humanity is not a good candidate for judging anyone.And we are speaking of social judging, not
In crimes, humanity was given the rules of due process,
in order to bring people to justice.This is a part of the divine establishment laws that bring stability to
Socially, however, there is no crime, no evidence, and
certainly no right to judge someone in a public forum, so as to cause harm against
them.This is sort of a vigilante
approach in the social realm.And no one
has ever been appointed to, or even elected to, the post of social judge.
By presuming this right as a judge of others, you set
yourself against God, and the truths, which He teaches us in the scriptures.
All gossip, maligning, or judging of others, whether
your facts are correct or not, are a violation of Gods laws.
So, if you are violating them (by judging), then you
cannot be abiding by them (being a doer of the law).
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
