Righteous Judgment

Few tendencies of the so-called mortal mind are more pronounced than the habit of passing judgment upon one's fellows. In utter disregard of the Master's specific admonition, mortals habitually pronounce judgment upon their friends and neighbors, often, it may be said, without sufficient knowledge of the facts to enable them even from a human standpoint to judge righteously. Furthermore such judgments are nearly always based upon a false sense of man, without knowledge of or regard for man's true status. How unfair such judgment must be!

When Jesus admonished his hearers, "Judge not, that ye be not judged," he also stated the inevitable consequence of mistaken judgment; for "with what measure ye mete," he declared, "it shall be measured to you again." Is this not both scientific and just? If we are to judge another from the basis of mortal belief, which holds the illusory sense of man as real, then justice would demand the same basis of judgment for ourselves But are we satisfied to be judged from the basis of our faults: or do we demand merciful judgment, the judgment which would forgive our faults, through seeing their nothingness, and that they have nothing in common with the true man, God's idea?
