Over the last little while, both in my personal life while i talk to people, and also in the blogosphere, the discussions i have had with these people have gotten me to contemplate something, and i’d like to hear from you, my readers, your arguments to the question:

When is a statement a judgment as opposed to a call to accountability?

I would appreciate any scripture references you have to offer, as well as insight from the opinions of authors that you hold in high regard. If you do use references, please include them in your comments so i and other readers have the option of looking them up.
