No. 31 The Be-Me Death Trap

Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Matthew 7:1, Luke 6:37, 41, 42

The quest for similarity in everyone we come to know reminds me of God’s desire for us to return to His image and likeness. It seems as natural to criticize and condemn others as it is to inhale.

The brilliant pre-sun kind of light, the light of Tabor that shines upon every crease of human psyche curbs our pension to turn every good and holy characteristic of our Father into a win for His arch enemy. Criticism and judgment are as pervasive on this earth as oxygen and carbon dioxide.

There is a kind of good criticism though, the kind that is employed when, we go to our brother who sinned against us, privately, to point out his fault, the kind required to combat true evil in every form. Judgment, discernment, discrimination are essential on this old earth.

Aspiring immortals, if we are to live need fancy footwork indeed to dance on these stepping stones of correct criticism and judgment lest we fall into the serpent-filled mote.

It is better to turn that Holy Gene of the quest for image and likeness for everyone around us, upon ourselves. Once again, the truth is simple and repetitive. We who want to be immortal work so hard at becoming Godlike that there is no time or energy left to try to make others into our still immature selves.
