“Judge not,” doesn’t mean that we should applaud unethical behavior.
If I hadn’t earned God’s judgment, I wouldn’t need His grace. “The wages of sin is death.”
The Good News isn’t that God’s okay with your behaviors. It’s that God’s ready to forgive your sins and help you get free from them. Christianity isn’t about productivity. You’re the product. God is trying to make you like Jesus. Will you let Him?
God is love, but to receive God’s love, we need to repent and remove any thoughts and behaviors that are blocking us from connecting with His love. No human is free from the temptation to think, say, and do evil. We all need to guard our heart, words, and behaviors.
The worldwide-prenatal-holocaust is applauded by many who claim to be human rights advocates. If taking human lives to prevent them from being born isn’t unethical, what is?
If we fail to see that racism is horrifying, we’re blind to history. I recently read George Washington’s “Thanksgiving Proclamation” of 1789 where he says that we should pray for God “to render our national government a blessing to all the people,” while it was vigorously supporting the holding (at that time) of about 700,000 innocent people in America in lifelong bondage. If George was serious about the national government being “a blessing to all the people,” he would have made his own Emancipation Proclamation to free those slaves & he would have also liberated the people he was personally human trafficking.

Maybe cussing isn’t a sign of strength, but rather a display of lack of self-control. If you don’t let garbage pile up in your house, perhaps it’s good to keep it out of your mind as well.
Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is within you.” Perhaps we shouldn’t confuse it with a human government or organization.
