Who Will Judge?

Who will judge us in the judgment?

“On the testimony of two or three witnesses a person is to be put to death, but no one is to be put to death on the testimony of only one witness.  The hands of the witnesses must be the first in putting that person to death, and then the hands of all the people. You must purge the evil from among you.”  Deuteronomy 17:6-7

Judgment will fall to the witnesses, the ones who know.  This principle will apply in lesser matters as well:

“Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.”  Matthew 5:25

This is showing the order of judgment.  Another version of this:

“If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.  But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’  If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.”  Matthew 18:15-17
