1) Sermon in the mount continued
Judge not that ye be not judged – Ezek. 16:52. Luke 6:37. Rom.2:1. 1Cor.4:3,5 Jas. 4:11
“Also bear your disgrace in that you have made judgment favorable for your sisters. Because of your sins in which you acted more abominably than they, they are more in the right than you, Yes, be also ashamed and bear your disgrace, in that you made your sisters appear righteous. ” And do not judge and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. Therefore you are without excuse, every man of you who passes judgment, for in that you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.But to me it is a very small thing that I should be examined by you, or by any human court, in fact, I do not even examine myself. Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother, or judges his brother, speaks against the law, and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law , bu a judge of it.
