Rebuke, Admonish, Correct, and Teach the Lost as Well as Those Who Have Been Mislead.
Matthew 7:1, “Do not Judge,” is used out of context probably more often than any other verse in defense of one's bad behavior, or faulty understanding of God's Truth, when confronted by a brother or sister in Christ. For most of  us, the moment we attempt to correct a brother or sister’s poor judgment, they recoil like a poked rattlesnake and accuse us of   judging them. Their pride controls their judgment. I believe we’ve arrived at the “time” mentioned below in 2 Timothy 4:3. And as he says in verse 2, we must show “great patience” if we're to convince anyone that Gods Word is the Truth, to those who've been mislead by false teachers into believing lies! Below is a list of scripture, God's Word, that shows that to Rebuke, Admonish, Correct, or Teach, is not only in any way, “not judging,” but it is our duty as Christians to Love and protect our brothers and sisters, and keep them out of harms way from an enemy that seeks to destroy them through false teachings. 
Proverbs 9:7-9, Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults;
whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.
8 Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.
9 Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;
teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.
Romans 12:6-8,  (NIV)  6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Titus 1:12-14, One of Crete’s own prophets has said it: “Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons.” 13, This saying is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith 14 and will pay no attention to Jewish myths or to the merely human commands of those who reject the truth.

1 Timothy 3:6-8 (KJV), 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7, Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. 8, Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
Proverbs 9:8  (KJV)  Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
Proverbs 19:25 KJV, Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
Proverbs 30:5-7  (KJV) 5, Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. 7 Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Mathew 28: The Great Commission, 16, Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Jude 1:2-4, 2, Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance. 3, Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. 4, For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.
