Judging Others
1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother,‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

It means that a man's spiritual condition is between him and God. It does not absolve the Christian of the duty to point out sin. God plainly told us what sin was and instructed us to warn the wicked lest their blood be upon our hands. The Scripture is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for instruction in righteousness. We are not to be Pharisaical -- that is, we must walk the walk if we're going to talk the talk. The Pharisees were good at keeping the tiniest points of the law while pointing out the failures of others, but their hearts were not right. Jesus said to them, "These ought ye to have done (getting their hearts right) and not to leave the other undone (their adherence to the law)." He never said, "It's OK to do whatever you want as long as you don't judge others."

I have noticed that when homosexuality is called what it is, perversion, those who practice that lifestyle always come back with the "Judge not" scripture and point out that other people sin, too. It is true that we are all sinners, but pointing that out doesn't give the homosexual a legitimate excuse for his sin. It doesn't matter if every human being on earth is worse than he is, homosexuality is still a sin, and the sins of others do not lessen its wickedness.

Every man must answer for his own sin, and I must answer if I keep my mouth shut about it.

The way I read it, it says he who lives in a glass house should not throw stones.

Have you read on down, the "Ask for a fish, get a serpent" part?. Well one day, I asked God for a Fish (Wife), a few months later, He gave me a Serpent (Wh@re!).8

You're wrong. The Old Testament is quoted throughout the New Testament. Verses from chapters in the Old Testament are referred in the New Testament. The entire Bible is for all- Christians and Jews. The Old Testament speaks of Christ.

It means........
Don't be hasty to point out what YOU see as WRONG OR SIN done by another; ONLY AFTER you have made a personal inventory of your Wrongs and SINS, and decided you were still more worthy than the next Soul, should you carefully tread your words, the humor of God is unsurpassed save only by the Peace which surpasses all understanding, which csn be gifted to us by God, but not if we are judging people by what we ourselves call the them.I i I I 1
