    Not me. People who live in glass houses shouldn't judge sponges, or some such thing. LOL.

    This is one of the most misunderstood/mis-quoted vv in the Bible. Do civil/criminal judges not judge? Do physicians not judge? Must parents not judge? Do NASA engineers not judge? Holy Writ urges us to weigh the pressures, the siren calls around us, to judge them and to guide our lives accordingly.

    The Greek word in Matt. 7:1, an aorist passive, is derived from krino, to have an opinion, to think, to prefer. Judging is at the core of hu-man existence, and Jesus knew this. He never asked his followers to kiss their brains good-bye. He was concerned with the self-righteous, arrogant attitude found in religious leaders of his day, the feeling that they and they alone had a corner on the truth. Take care, he said, for with the disdainful, supercilious attitude you display in judging, you will also be judged. For modern proof look at Al Sharpton, Adolf Hitler, and Mao Tse Tung. Each of these has experienced the same attitude from others that he has shown to them. "What goes around comes around."

    In other words if you think something about someone else then you will in return be examined, first by yourself and second by another. God will also look at you because you must accept we are all independent creatures of God with purposes, you must accept that we are all made for jobs God has given us. You shouldn't judge but learn to take joy that people have strengths that God has given them.

    I try to remember this when I look down on a person. It's easy to do. I don't like it, but it is a part of me. I have been on the other end of the stick so to speak and should not be one to talk, yet I really do sometimes, what's wrong with me.

    I get paid to be here and judge you!

    you gonna judge me for that?

  • Judge; That depends on how one means it.

    If one looks at your life, and judges (decides)whether one wants there life similar to yours or not, that is one thing; or do they decide 'heaven or hell' for you, that is another.

    God is going to judge you anyway, so go ahead and judge away.
