The gift of "Discernment" specifically is a tool for judgement. Not to be used in the sense of condemning others, but in the sense of knowing what is being taught aligns with God. I've heard some call it a "gut feeling" or that something "doesn't add up" after having a discussion with someone or hearing a sermon that is not Scripturally sound. If you walk with God, and you are gifted with Discernment, you cannot help but to judge. Obviously, Discerning is not sinning. God would not give us such a gift if otherwise.
I won't go as far as to say that I have some kind of Godly gift, but I think we all have the ability to discern whether what somebody is preaching correlates with truth or not.
Whether this is the case of not, we all have a responsibility to read the Bible and check what is being taught.
There are very many modern Christians that don't do this.
These types of Christians sir there in a service listening intently as if God himself is speaking directly to them.
Always question, humans are (very) fallible.
