Get the Log Out of Your Eye
Series: Luke
Luke 6:37-42
 
This passage is regularly used by Christians to support a view of "no judgment" in the Christian community. However, the reality that we are to pass judgment on one another is assumed in v. 42: "first take the log out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye." Jesus' is not forbidding all forms of judgment, but continual faultfinding and criticism that eventually leads to contempt for other persons that result in condemning attitudes and behavior. Mercy, not continual faultfinding and condemnation are God's way of living in the kingdom.
