Are we to judge others and things?

1) John 7:24 Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”
2) James 4:11-12 Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
3) Proverbs 31:9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.
4) 1 Corinthians 2:15 The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one.
