Jesus says in Matthew 7:16-20 these words, "16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."

Ephesians 5:9 tells us the three areas where the fruit is; (For the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) is in all goodness and Righteousness and Truth;)

Therefore we only judge by their fruits in these areas. See post #5 above for God's standards of Righteousness and Truth.

The Apostle Paul, the major judge.
English uses the same word with different meanings. The English definition of judging can mean several different things, depending upon the context. As an apostle to the Gentiles, Paul has supervisory responsibility for the churches he founded. Similar to the 12 apostles judging the 12 tribes of Israel.

And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Matthew 19:28 KJV

Not every Christian has been appointed to supervise other saints from a throne.
