There can be nothing wrong in questioning somebody else's belief. If Jesus did not question the belief of the Jews, your belief of Christianity wouldn't have even been born at the first place, remember? Imagine our loss, had Galileo, Copernicus & the likes did not question the set beliefs of Christendom! It's always been the questions that'd put us ahead, not beliefs. Lest you forgot, there is a thing called "freedom OF belief" & sadly for many, it extends to "freedom FROM belief" too. As the heart beats, so the brain thinks. And too many refuses to accept authority over their brains & choose to question everything, before they can or can't give in. And don't forget, that we live in 21st century & not in the dark ages, when to question the belief was termed as heresy & led the victim to the burning yard.
We aren't supposed to judge other's but God does say to discern the spirits to see if they are of God. We can do that by comparing it with the Word of God. So, sometimes, an individual has to do that to judge ourselves. And, we're to guard our heart so that we not be deceived or deceive others or sin in daily life It does get misunderstood as judging sometimes. And, if we are judging, the good thing is God will convict us and we'll have no peace with that and hopefully go to that person and get it right. If we pray daily, ask Him to lead us, He does answer and yes, we do fail at times, but sometimes, I'm saying-negative statements don't always mean judging a person. It can be discernment. In a willing back and forth conversation, there may be negative statements But,even when truth is spoken,someone sometimes does get offended.It doesn't necessarily mean the one speaking said something wrong though based solely on that fact. And yes, I do believe that sometimes someone is spiritually dead. We all are before we come to the Saving Grace of God through the Blood of Jesus Christ according to the Bible.
Lots of people, sadly. - Your phrasing is odd. Like theres one question before the comma and completely separate one after the comma. The two thoughts dont match. Same for one of your other questions. Im hoping English isnt your first language otherwise...wow.
