Thank you for writing this thoroughly rounded article. I only had time to scan it, but seems like one I will chew on and digest well, so the next time someone tells me not to judge, I will have a sound, biblical reply 🙂
Not merely "do not condemn," for this would leave too much latitude; nor, on the other hand, "do not ever judge," for this is sometimes our duty; but "do not be always judging" ().
All of this judgment was according to the Word of God.
Based on what little information I have: When we ask for God's forgiveness he forgives them and hides our sins in the sin of forgetfulness never to remember anymore. We are judged on sins that we do not ask forgiveness of.
At the coming judgment we will need to face the truth of ..
The main issues discussed by philosophers on the topic of evilhave been: Should we use the term ‘evil’ in our moral,political, and legal discourse and thinking, or is evil an out-datedor empty concept which should be abandoned? What is the relationshipbetween evil and other moral concepts such as badness and wrongdoing?What are the necessary and sufficient conditions for evil action?What are the necessary and sufficient conditions for evil character?What is the relationship between evil action and evil character?

But he does not think that we should abandon theconcept of evil for this reason.)
