“Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things.”
Everyone in the world is without excuse for not following God. He is evident in creation, in the design of the universe. He is evident in our conscience, every person, every culture everywhere, has a moral code that came from a moral God. All have sinned against God.
But people who judge others’ behavior while practicing the same thing are in need of special condemnation. Seeing the sin in others should cause a serious heart examination of ourselves. What we see in others is within us. As a result, we should then cry to God for his mercy for us.
In Matthew 7:1ff Jesus said it this way (a paraphrase): “Before you judge others, before trying to remove the speck of sin in another, first remove the log of sin in your own eye."
It’s the right and healthiest way to live!
