Matthew 7:1-2:

 1DO NOT judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves.  2For just as you judge and criticize and condemn others, you will be judged and criticized and condemned, and in accordance with the measure you [use to] deal out to others, it will be dealt out again to you.

I spoke about this in our Adult Bible Study Service at The Spoken Word Church. You don't have to search very long for a well-known name on the internet before you find someone who disagrees with them, dislikes them, even down right hates them! This is especially true of ministers of the Gospel! Nowhere, in all of the New Testament, do we see a "Ministry of Correction" ordained! In fact, there are many more Scriptures like the one above where we are told how NOT to treat those with whom we disagree. We are told to bless them, to pray for them, and even, if they are preaching something contrary to God's Word,  to avoid them (Romans 16:17). If you ever come across a website that slanders or mocks or accuses a minster of the Gospel, pray for those who have done this that they come to their senses, repent (change their thinking to agree with God), confess their sin, and begin to be about their actual calling from God! God has said to NOT "touch" those whom He has anointed (1 Chronicles 16:22; Psalm 105:15)! That would included every born again believer, because we have ALL received the Anointing (1 John 2:20)! Sow mercy, ALWAYS! You never know when YOU will need mercy for YOUR life! Amen! Let's be "Children of the Light" and bring glory to HIS Name! Here is Hillsong Live with that song! :

Shalom in Him!
