It would not be heaven if it were full of judgemental christians. One thing God was very clear about is that Christians were not to judge. Doing so would make them subject to Gods judgement and they would not make it to heaven. Second in Heaven everyone will be so filled with Joy at being with God, that they will not have a hateful, negative or judgemental thought. I understand how you feel, I used to feel the same way. A lot of people calling themselves Christians are going to be mighty surprised on Judgement day! Now that I know God better, I am careful about judging others. Please click on a star next to RATE THIS ANSWER,  if you would be so kind. It will make certain that my answer will be recorded, and I am grateful for your question and the opportunity to answer, Pray for those judgmental christians and God will really give them hell!...*p

I like how your answer is very to the letter as to what a true Christian should be... And then at the end you go completely the other way by saying the judgmental ones will be given hell, if you pray for it. Sounds a bit, oh I don't know, judgmental?

Mtapply: Because non believers fail to see the laws of God and follow them does not make a christian judgemental as you say.(if you don't know the rules how do you play the game)(if you don't know what God says how do you judge that christians are judgemental)..rather trying to educate the unlearned. It seems to me the same thing happened to Jesus when he spoke the truth to his own people and they crucified him for it because it upset their reality the truth of what is, instead of what was at the time they heard his words...the duty of a christian is to pass on the words of Jesus not to sugarcoat the answers to make you feel comfortable with the words of God. If you don't accept the truth that is your freewill to do so , but do not confuse God/Jesus with a judgemental christian.. He is the lord/God the alpha  and the omega/the beginning and the end. In other words even if you don't accept what he said in the bible it is still the truth and there is still a heaven and a hell and it is your choice where you want to end up in the end after your life here on earth is over with...so if you want to deny yourself heaven by making excuses and blaming others for you lack of ability to read the word for yourself and accept then do so... The bible also says to give the good word to the unsaved and if they do not want to hear and accept then move on to the next town/person knock the dust from your feet and move on...it does not say anywhere to stand in the middle of the road and act like you don't know what God says in the Bible.in other words a christian a person that believes Jesus died on the cross for their sins can not remain neutral sit on the fence so to speak/be an onlooker. Either you believe Jesus is God or you don't ,there is only one choice...either Jesus is who he said he is or he is not. That is the decision you and everyone on earth has to make before they die/pass from this life into the next.....it's sort of like correcting a child so they don't hurt themselves by burning their hand in a fire.you can warn them but if they don't listen they still learn the lesson the hard way,that the parent /God the father is always right....so if you consider me or others judgemental then i suggest that you look at it from their perspective when they do the correcting/so called judging...your perspective may just change when you walk a mile in their shoes so to speak/when you see it from another vantage point...all i can say is read the bible for yourself it is your decision now not mine or anyone elses/there will be no one to blame/to take your place at the judgement seat /in front of God...whether you accept or not, because of a childish denile/rebellion from the truth....so for lack of a better phrase to get you to listen grow up put away childish things and act like a adult and do adult things like learn for yourself the words Jesus spoke...even parents(earthly) are judged by their children to  be judgemental when in reallity they are trying to protect what they gave life to ....what they love more than anything on earth...(their child)... And when the child grows up they learn the difference between bieng judgemental and saving them from harm...think about it...later

Ah, but it is judgmental for you to think you are so right, and everyone else is so wrong. It is judgmental to say my lack of belief is "a childish denial/rebellion from the truth." That may be your truth, but it is not mine, yet you judge me for it. I have grown up and put away childish things, and that allows me to see, with some clarity, that you judge me for not seeing things the way you do.

I try to not judge . If you consider telling the truth to be judging you then you have not put away childish things. You are still trying to prove you are right even to the point that it will cost you your place in heaven whether you believe it or not ,it is still there as well as hell(separation from God)...if i tell you anything less than this i would be putting a literal stumbling block in your way to make a informed decision.....if you want to argue this point argue with God .

Gods word will not change even for me, and i will be judged for not telling you the truth so if telling you the truth is being judgemental then i will be judged justly by God..

That's a very good question, and I suppose it depends on what one believes.  I won't even attempt an answer to the question, because I don't want to start any fights, but I admit I share your curiosity in light of the fact that so many devout Christians seem to believe that I am going to go to hell because I'm not a Christian and don't take Jesus as my savior.  There appears to be some hypocrisy to it.

Best answer yet!
To the rest of you, I'm sorry I tore you away from writing checks to TV preachers or child molesters with pointy hats, but I've read the Bible, The Koran and the Bahga vagita (sorry about the spelling). They're all filled with wisdom but they also spew the same old "my god is better than your god crap". We as humans must get past all the judgemental religious B.S. Only then can we ascend to our place as scientific explorers of Gods universe.

You both seem to forget that the christian that is telling you you need to be saved at one time was exactly like you both.the hypocrisy you see(in others) is a mirror unto yourself...think about it..

If a Christian is judgemental then that means that they are not following the rules of the bible. Apostle Paul, a god smart man, said that if we are to be beleivers, that we need to be one in christ. He sent letters to churches telling them not to discriminate, but to welcome strangers with open arms. The Jews at that time disagreed with his teachings was because he accepted people of other religions, races, genders, and especially colors (the Jews then did not think that whites and blacks were on the same page) and tried to turn them towards God.
If your Christian friends say otherwise, then they are not truly following God's word.

In heaven Christians aren't judgemental because they realize much of what they were taught just isn't so.  Jesus isn't the Lord of Heaven.  Their sins weren't forgiven.  There's no Eternal Damnation.  GOD created this world as a school for Soul to grow up in.  Over many lifetimes, we keep coming back and learning more and settling our accounts, until we reach that state where we can graduate.  I know all this because I recall many lives, some of which were Christian.
