It is common in the United States that people are pilloried for “judging.” Don’t judge me. You shouldn’t judge. He who judges, by the same standard will he be judged. The biblical principle is correct, the other two statements are based on a false premise.

To get through a day, you must make judgments. You have to judge people. You have to decide how to act, react, and respond to them. But there is a major facet of judgment that is not taught or understood.

You can judge actions, you cannot judge intent or motive.
