John 7:24 (KJV) How Can It Be Wrong?

John 7:24 (KJV)
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. 
An old country song mused, “How can it be wrong when it feels so right?”[1] The fallen nature of man has a mixed up sense of good and evil, seeking to call things right in their own eyes when they know God says it is evil.
There is something that looks right and something that is right. The Lord urged that we would judge what is right and not just what appears right in our fallen minds:

  • A woman’s right to choose may appear right but killing the baby she carries is not right
  • A person’s longing for love may appear right but a same sex marriage is not right
  • A person’s happiness may appear to be right but to break up a family because you have fallen for a different partner is not right
  • A woman or an unqualified man may believe they are called to be a pastor might seem to be right, but to ignore the Bible in order for them to do it is not right
On and on we could go with things that might look to us to be right but that are definitely opposed to the Word of God.
The standard is that which has been established by God in His Word. Judge righteousness by that.
