not me i did not take it that way.<quoted text>
Why use a bible that is in a form of English not used today. Do you know why the king James is around? King James wanted to have a bible that was easily understood, thus taking the power of the church, over the people away. In his day, if one wanted to know about anything to do with the bible, he needed a priest. But a bible in plain English off the day, took away that need. You my good sir, just sat their and gave us all a great lesson in why the every day person needs a religion. Needs someone to translate. I think if half the "men of God" used a bible that everybody could understand, they'd have no following at all.
i took it in a way that people only pick those 2 words 'judge not' and they dont go any further for the whole explanation.
this was a lesson that says christians are in a position to judge.
if we did not judge the right way, we could say anybody or anybody was okay to come in and visit and be a maid. if we did not judge references, then they would catch our backs turned and steal us blind.
