No Condemnation

When we believe that an act or an attitude of another is wrong, our first reaction is often one of condemnation. When we wish to be more compassionate, we may still feel that having exercised judgment that is righteous, we are free to condemn the wrongdoer.

The Apostle Paul saw the way to free mankind from this burden. He said (Rom. 8:1), "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." The Master never condemned those who came to him for healing, although he did not withhold a stern rebuke if it was necessary to awaken the thought of the suffering one. His clear thought separated the individual from the error; and seeing its nothingness, he proved it unreal. Jesus saw man as the blessed child of God, forever free and pure, and this perfect knowing healed the sick and sinning.
