Pastor Ryan Scott Carrell has written a book called You Can’t Judge Me that was based on one of his favorite sermon series he preached here at Southeast. You can download a free copy below.
Ryan is also working on a book version of his recent series on the scriptures called The Bible: why a book of confusion, contradiction, and violence matters. You will find it here as soon as it becomes available.

When we learn about not judging others, it feels uncomfortable because we’ve been told time and time again that we’re not supposed to judge. But learning about the “right” kind of judgment feels uncomfortable for the same reason. It feels unloving. But here is the truth: not helping someone with a situation that you know will lead to an experience of pain isn’t love, it is indifference. Indifference says, “I don’t care if it hurts you because it isn’t me.” That’s not friendship or love; that’s not even hate. That’s literally not caring at all about our brothers and sisters. If you want to love people, you’re going to have to learn how to judge and how to help.
This short book unpacks the topic of judgment and shows us the surprising perspective that will change all of our relationships for the better. Click the links to download for free today.

Let’s take an honest look at the Bible and discover why this ancient book is still so incredibly relevant today.
