Matthew 7: 1-5
In a case of poultry bigotry the principal of Ventura High School, just outside Los Angeles banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended.
The superintendent told CBS News, ''With their stance on gay rights …, I didn't want them on campus. We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission.''
This is a classic example of those preaching inclusivity and diversity being the least inclusive and diverse of all.
America has added an 11th commandment, and it has become by far her favorite.
''Thou shalt not judge.''
It is misquoted, misunderstood, and misdirected but it is MEMORIZED by the MASSES!
Yet without a doubt, we live in the most judgmental generation ever in America!
They do not realize how they are in realty breaking the very commandment they quote!
People never cry ''judge not'' when it is in approval of them. That would still be judging! The answer is obvious…….
YARD STICKS quickly become BOOMER RANGS!!!
One lady told her beautician ''I had to break up with my boyfriend because he was a hypocrite! I found out after dating him 6 months that he is married! If I hadn't overheard my husband say so I wouldn't have found out!''
1) The CAUTION We Must HEED!
A Lady dusted and dusted all she could see was dust…finally she took off her glasses and saw they were covered…….with dust!
(1-2) ''Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.''
It is a warning against HYPOCRITICAL judgment, not against BIBLICAL judgement.
The Lord Jesus immediately followed this by saying look out for logs, hogs and dogs.
Jesus did not make a blanket statement against judgment. He simply pointed out a RULE for judging!
