My friend is a pagan and possibly bi-sexual and she is constantly complaining about how I am judging her. I am not actually judging her but I think becaus she knows I don't approve of her lifestyle - she automatically assumes I am deliberately trying to make her feel inferior,
I encountered the same situation several years ago - somebody I never judged before on any matter accused me of being extremely judgmental because she felt sinful around me. Also she told me her friends hated me because I was judgmental but had nothing to back up my judgments of others. I knew her friends didn't like me but up until that point, I did not know why
Of course being religious you have a strong idea of what is right and what is wrong but that is not the same thing as judging others.

Must be what you say to them. I can only assume. I never judge non-Christian people not do I shove my opinions on them. But for instance a friend of mine often says I make them feel like a bad person cause I'm so responsible and nice and do not get drunk or do drugs or sleep around.
I like to think the Holy Spirit is drawing them through me. I don't shove my beliefs but I post Facebook stuff about Jesus a lot. I figure at the right time i can talk to my friends about Christ, for now I try to just be a light.
It's important that we do not judge others because we are not righteous on our own accord, we are righteous because we faithe in Jesus so His righteousness is imputed onto us. I am careful not to sound self-righteous to others lest they think they are "not good enough" to faithe in Christ.0
