Disaster Prevention

Disaster prevention may be found in as simple a form as judging before deciding. “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things…” (1Cor.2:15a, KJV) The Amplified version sets it in terminology that gives us a good definition of the word “judge” (Gk.: anakrino) in this context: “But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things]…”. Numerous times I have heard the biblical phrase “judge not lest you be judged” witlessly rattled off while accepting things that were quite preposterous (even dangerous). It would seem that the primary aim of our taking the time and wisdom to judge should be to examine if the report/information is in agreement with the Word of God. (Compare: Lev.19:15b; Ps.82:2; Prov.31:9; Lk.12:57; Jn.7:24) This is the third excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation”.)
