It's funny how people like you throw out the part about "not judging" as some kind of a "get out of jail free" card. It is nothing of the sort. What that "not judging" means is that you are not the ultimate judge of a person's acts, as in what happens to them in the afterlife, as God can only do that.
Christians are not only allowed to make judgments and discernments in everyday life, they are encouraged to do so.
Nope, it's not. But the bible does tell you to put yourself in consideration first and judge yourself before judging others.

Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brotherís eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brotherís eye.

I will point out that your judgments toward me are also unfounded. You continually speculate about my character, my behavior, and my state of being all the while being incorrect on all of those assertions.

"Judgments are opinions that we form only after we have made a serious effort to know the facts, and, for those of us who are Christians, only after we have consulted the moral teachings of Scripture and prayed for Spirit-informed discernment. Any lazy or biased fool can have opinions; making judgments is the hard work of responsible and compassionate people."

YOU made the assertion that I am not a Christian.
I posted bible passages from the Book of Christianity that supports my views. What could be more Christian than having views which are supported by the bible, not to mention 2,000 years of tradition?
Your kind were skanks 2,000 years ago and you are skanks today.
What exactly makes me a "skank"? I would love for you to provide evidence of supposed my loose character and sexual promiscuity.

I agree about being with the wrong element. In today's society, a person is judged by who they associate with, even though that person is not of the same cloth.
I'm sure that monks through the ages, added, and omitted, lost and or found information and wrote what was there at hand. At that time.
Some parts of the Holy Bible are hard to believe, for me that is, and then most of it is wonderful, satisfying reading.
A person is responsible for their own life, actions, and deeds. I believe a person only has God
to answer to.Also one has to live with whatever and however they choose to live their life.
I used to laugh at people who listened to Catholic Radio, but find myself listening to it more and more these days. I also used to listen to Dave Ramsey on occasion who intersperses Biblical wisdom with financial advice. It simply amazes me how much wisdom the Bible has, even applicable to everyday issues like personal finances.

Like I said in another post, I come from an ethnic family from Europe. Not holy rollers by any means, but this stuff was important enough to them that they lead their lives mostly consistent with religion. I look around me in the extended family and what do I see? Very little American dysfunction. Few divorces, baby mommas, baby daddies ... all the kids graduated college, the grandkids did so to. From what I see around me, the lifestyle largely works.

On the issue of monks. I think I appreciate that lifestyle more and more these days. I just know that with all the noise we have in daily life, it's hard to keep a message in your head consistent with that lifestyle. The monks are there because they don't have this noise from society and pop culture. They live a simple life, they are immersed in the faith, and they keep the real meaning alive through the generations so it is not perverted by what goes on in the secular world.

I have my issues with the Bible and religion myself, but I am 100% sold on the lifestyle.

And no, quoting scripture doesn't make you a Christian. Your actions, behavior, and verbal attacks are testimony to the contrary. You behave in direct opposition of what god intended for you.

I've been scorned by women? lol I don't think you know what you're saying. I'm not angry towards men. I have nothing to be angry about. I'm quite happy and haven't dealt with a lot of rejection in my life. Your friend Bob-o, his words speak otherwise. Not to mention he condones pedophilia and places some of the blame of child sex abuse on the victim.

You are an idiot.

When you make the claim that I "am not a Christian" because of certain views I hold, and then I show you Bible passages that encourages me to have those views, you cannot say that "quoting scripture doesn't make you a Christian".

I was Baptised, Chrismated and take communion. More importantly, my lifestyle and behaviors are 99% in line with what the church teaches. And Christianity teaches me not to have skanks in my life.

If that doesn't make me a Christian, I don't know what does.

We don't care about the Huffington Post interpretation of this Bible verse. I gave you the real interpretation a few posts back and the real interpretation encourages to be discerning about who you bring into your life.

You, sir, are a hypocrite. Read your Bible again carefully and then tell me who Jesus seemed to have the most problems with when he was here among us.
I don't care about what Reverend Wright taught you in your black activist church, though you might benefit from a serman or two from the Rev. Dr. James David Manning

He can't do it, but he didn't say I can't. Best way I know to send the right message to your children on who they can and can't bring into their lives.

And as an illustration, let me show you what happens when parents are wishy washy about basics like this:

Because your behavior says otherwise. Anyone can be baptized, take communion and attend church. That doesn't make them anything. It's what's in your heart and soul that makes you a Christian and you clearly do not have those factors.

Ah, so you're saying these quotations from the bible aren't relevant. Interesting.
