I have always been blamed of criticizing people and things though I am making rightful comments Biblically. For example if sun is scorching hot I have said, “It’s too hot today.” But many people take this opinion as negative statement or criticism. I have somehow learnt two effective ways to shut the mouth of such people that try to eat your brains out with their rash opinions.
Shutting the mouth of those who tell you are negative and criticizer
Everyone in this modern era thinks judging is bad habits. There is even famous phrase that says, “Nobody can judge you, only GOD can judge you.” The other one is “If you point one finger four fingers are pointing at you.”
Now let’s hear what Jesus said in Matthew 7:1-5, “Don’t judge or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others and with the same measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of dust in your brother’s eyes and pay no attention to the plank of wood in your own eyes. You hypocrite first take the plank out of your own eye and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eyes.”
Both Christians and non-Christians in this world respect this norm of not judging others.
So when they tell that you are negative or criticizer though you are right, tell them that are so judgmental. Tell them, “Only GOD can judge me. Don’t point finger at me, four fingers are pointing at you. First go and remove your wood from the eyes and you can see my specks clearly to remove it.”
With such bullets of statements, their mouth will shut with no more rash opinions about you as criticizer, pessimist or negative person.
Shutting the mouth of those who say you are judgmental
This world has forgotten the actual meaning of judgments. Without right judgments their can be no peace and solution to injustice. In fact the Bible has a book entitled Judges which is dedicated to leaders that maintained justice and peace over Israelites by passing GOD’s judgments on tormentors. Moses delegated some of his responsibilities to 70 judges in the deserts as well.
Yet people command not to judge because they want to do whatever they like to spread evilness. People don’t even know what Christ is saying when he says, “Don’t judge.” Christ is actually saying don’t judge wrongly like corrupted leaders.
But the same Christ said in John 16:8-9 “When He (Spirit) comes he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment about sin because people do not believe in me.”
All the Judges of Bible had right to judge when Spirit was upon them. Spirit is nothing but Word (John 6:63). One can only judge when Spirit approves wrong and right.
When corrupted people judge you wrongly say to them “You are so negative and you criticize.” Because in this present world there has been this circulation of thought being negatives is to be discourager and unproductive. Nobody like this entitlement since the self-help development theories and positivism theories of development was introduced. Just telling them they were negative will put them in shame because they have the knowledge of motivational theory that says if one is negative they are losing the bucks. These kinds of people think they have to be positive even when things are not Biblical, Godly and Divine.
Shut the mouth of those who say, “You are judgmental person” by saying, “You are so NEGATIVE-CRITICIZER.”
