Some will recognize right away what this is...
some will think they know what it is...
and some will have no idea what this is.
But most will have an opinion based on what they see.
What about the people you see?
Have you formed an opinion about any of them?
No matter how many “facts”
you think you know about someone...
it may be based on a single incident
or many... something you have “found out”
just recently... or something you “know”
about someones past.
Do you know their heart?
“Whenever we assign people to condemnation
because they do not do something
the way we think it ought to be done
or because we believe their motives are wrong,
we pass judgment that only God is qualified to make.”
- John MacArthur
“[My] brethren, do not speak evil
about or accuse one another.
He that maligns a brother
or judges his brother
is maligning and criticizing the Law
and judging the Law.
But if you judge the Law,
you are not a practicer of the Law
but a censor and judge [of it].
One only is the Lawgiver and Judge
Who is able to save and to destroy
[the One Who has the absolute power of life and death].
[But you] who are you that [you presume to]
pass judgment on your neighbor?"
- James 4:11,12 AMP
