Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven:
God has reserved three prerogatives royal to Himself — vengeance, glory, and judgment. As it is not safe for us, then, to encroach upon God's royalties in either of the other two — glory or vengeance — so neither in this, of judgment. We have no right to judge; and so our judging is usurpation. We may err in out judgment; and so our judgment is rashness. We take things the worse way when we judge: and so our judging is uncharitable. We offer occasion of offence by our judging; and so our judging is scandalous (Deuteronomy 32:35; Isaiah 41:8; Romans 12:10; Romans 14:4).
