THE ONE TRUE FAITH REVISITED: JUDGMENTALISM
Admonishing the sinner is still a spiritual work of mercy
Our Lord calls out those who judge others while turning a blind eye to their own moral shortcomings. Personal sins tend to color a person’s perceptions of the moral actions of others. Our Lord directs that whoever is doing the correcting first get his own moral affairs in order so that he’s then able to help someone else to do the same.
In Matthew 7:4–5, Our Lord says, “Or how can you say to your brother: Let me cast the speck out of your eye; and behold a beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite, cast out first the beam in your own eye, and then you shall see to cast out the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
