the actions of another Are right or wrong but when we read the entire statement of Christ verses 15 we can readily see what is being said the judging being condemned is inaccurate human and critical to fact Christ was giving a lesson on proper judgement in verses one and two we learn that if we judge others by our rash opinions of them then we put our selves in danger of being rashly judged by god verses three and four shows the impossibility of helping another with their faults when ours Are worse than theirs verse 5 teaches us that self examination and self control must proceed any attempt on our part to help another actually if any judgement is condemned by Christ then we cant even judge what is right not to mention wrong Bui christs Law the new testament is our Standard of judgement we can know right from wrong we can know if our actions Are proper and we can know if others behaviour is Good or bad became gods word gives us the True Standard Jesus said be shall know
