“Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.” If I had a nickel for every time I heard some sanctimonious person utter those words I’d be a rich man. Now if that is the case what do you do with Matthew 18 where Jesus tells us to correct a person who is sinning? Isn’t that making a judgment? Of course it is. What Jesus is saying here is do not condemn others or you will be condemned. It is our duty, our obligation to lead people to God by telling them how much God loves them and that the things they are doing are wrong. We do not have the duty to CONDEMN someone. That is beyond our pay grade. .Condemnation is God’s business, not ours. Jesus is telling us not to condemn someone to hell for what they are doing or have done, but simply to guide them back to God. Amen.
