I like your wording
If we came to a place where we thought that true righteous judgment was criticism wrong judgment then our "freedom" and "grace" has actually trapped us and bound us into a new system of law, we have created, our conscience bound to something other than Gods Word bound to some one elses word.
We have seen that here at one time when someone taking a stand in agreement with scripture was told by some that their saying something was wrong because God's word says not to do it were told they were judging and that that was wrong.

A lot seems to have to do with heart attitude and whether the aim is to just keep- peace at any price, to bring life in Christ, or to use the scripture to minister death. When the woman caught in adultery was brought before Him Jesus did not condone the adultery but neither did he condemn the person. He set her free from her sin and told her to walk in righteousness.
1Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. ... Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. Matthew 25:40 & 45
