"Judge not, that ye be not judged.

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own eye?

Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. "

I've always REALLY liked these ideas, and was raised with them during a time when all sorts of isms ran rampant...only not at my house. Now, my folks overdid it a bit because their philosophy was 'you're not better than anyone else and can't judge them' but it didn't end there. They went on to say, 'you are also not as good as anyone else, and should not even exist, so just shuddup.'

I'm not sure that's what Jesus meant, but then I guess he lives with the continual frustration of being misconstrued, or used for other people's purposes, and for other people's agendas and evil game playing.
