Interesting fact: According to scripture, judging is one of the distinct responsibilities relegated to the Son of God by the Father (John 5:22-23; Acts 10:34-42; Acts 17:31; Romans 2:16; 2 Timothy 4:1). In like manner, it is an important responsibility for God’s children to judge, both now (1 Corinthians 2:15) and in the future (1 Corinthians 6:3).
Bible study tip: In any Bible study, attention to even the smallest of details is of utmost importance. Sometimes adding or subtracting even a letter from a single word can form an altogether different word and convey a completely different meaning. Additionally, the Bible also sometimes utilizes capitalization to express variations in the meaning of a word. For instance, “The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13) is not synonymous with “the word of God” (1 Peter 1:23) though the two are closely associated. The Bible uses the capital “W” in Word to refer to the incarnate Son of God, whereas the lower case word refers to the written word of God.

Romans 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
