  • Also, "Judge not, and you shall not be judged.Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:37

    Here is some commentary on the verse from David Guzik:

    "Despite the way this passage is quoted by many of those who are not Christians (who seem to have memorized it faithfully), and even by many Christians, Jesus is not calling to a universal acceptance of any lifestyle or teaching.

    i. Note what Jesus says in Luke 6:43-45 in this same message. There, Jesus calls us to know people by their fruits, and some sort of assessment is necessary for that.

    The Christian is called to unconditional love, but he is not called to unconditional approval. We really can love people who do things we do not approve of."

    Hope that helps ya : )

  • Oops. here is a tiny bit more:

    "b. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: Instead, Jesus is speaks against being judgmental, that is, judging motives and the inner man, which only God can know. Jesus calls us to have the same kind of mercy God has towards us.

    i. We can judge the fruit of others, but we can rarely judge their motives with accuracy."

  • Luke 6:36-38 (New American Standard Bible)
    36"Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. 37"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. 38"Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure--pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return. NASB

  • Luke 6:36-38 (The Message)

    35-36"I tell you, love your enemies. Help and give without expecting a return. You'll never—I promise—regret it. Live out this God-created identity the way our Father lives toward us, generously and graciously, even when we're at our worst. Our Father is kind; you be kind.

    37-38"Don't pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults— unless, of course, you want the same treatment. Don't condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang. Be easy on people; you'll find life a lot easier. Give away your life; you'll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity."
