Can someone explain this so I make sure I am gettin this in the right way, someone told me too look it up after I made a statement and I am not understanding what the one has to do with the other. Can I have ur understanding of this?
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Were you judging? I'm assuming that you are the one who said " if people are going to the whole church thing well then it needs to be done seven days a week and not just on Sundays." So then the verse is a biblical response to your judging, in which even though they are not attending church according to the way you feel is correct, that God loves them just as much as you.
