“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Christ was mentioning that we should not judge hypocritically. That all judgment must be fair and understood by cause. That we ourselves at one point have done the same deed and therefore are in no manner superior. And if we have yet to do the same deeds that we judge unto others, we have done our own deeds in sin which would neglect us our plead of ignorance in God’s courtroom.
“‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
