Matthew 7:1-2

Matthew 7:1-2: “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

Matthew 7:15-20: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Matthew says that we shouldn't judge, but Matthew also says that we should judge false prophets by their fruits.

Reading further into Matthew 7, we can see that Jesus' commandment is only against judging hypocritically.

Since judging a false prophet is not hypocritical, the verses do not conflict.
