“Before thou reprehend another, take heed that thou are not culpable in what thou goest about to reprehend. He that cleanses a blot with blurred fingers will make a greater blot. Even the candle-snuffers of the sanctuary were of pure gold.” — Quarles
It is always slightly amusing, as well as somewhat annoying, to see someone spew the words “…Judge not…” on social media followed up with harsh criticism of the person or persons who just incurred their wrath for expressing an opinion contrary to their own. The amusing part is that they have just demonstrated that they don’t really know what it is that the Holy bible actually says. Follow up attempts at conversing with them frequently demonstrates lack of any desire to find out and it only agitates their guilty conscience.
We know that sacred things are liable to be abused by profane persons. It should really come as no surprise, then, when they use and abuse the sacred text to attack us in order to inflict pain and/or attempt to silence us.
In the “Sermon on the Mount” Jesus admonished His followers that they must judge, that’s right, we are to judge and to do so in a correct fashion. Curiously enough, though, He first gave the willfully ignorant something on which they could hang their hat if they wished to remain blind to the truth. Now the one who is severe on others will naturally excite their severity against himself. Therefore a certain level of tact is called for because the Christian has not been given permission to ignore sin. Many, if not most, of the problems we are experiencing today is because we find it easier to sit down and be quiet rather than to stand and speak up.
A nation that was based largely on biblical values has turned anti-biblical, with the trend accelerating in recent years because too many who call themselves Christian have failed to stay true to the teachings of The Christ.
“Many Christians have been changing their views on abortion and homosexual behavior regardless of what the Bible teaches. In wanting either to avoid the label of being intolerant or in some cases desiring to steer clear of governmental persecution, Christians are acquiescing. We believe that much of the giving in is because so many in the church have compromised [their belief in] God’s Word beginning in Genesis, and so now generations in our churches really don’t look to the Bible as the absolute authority of the Word of God.” – Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis
The minister, whose God-given task it is to declare to the people their faults and sins, should closely examine himself, lest, after he has preached to others, he himself should be cast-away. Likewise, each and every follower of Jesus, who is called The Christ, should seek to be as much like Him as possible. We must seek purification for it is only when we have wrestled with and overcome our own besetting sins, that have the insight and tact to direct others how to overcome theirs.
When the devil reminds you of your past, simply remind him of his future.
A bad liver cannot be a good counselor or bold reprover; such a person must speak softly for fear of awakening his own guilty conscience and that is why we are called to be holy unto God. Therefore let each one of us seek to study the Word of God, live the Word of God, be like the Word of God, and boldly proclaim the Word of God.

“I just got an email from somebody sending me the latest Donald Trump tweet, and the person sending me the email said, ‘This is uncanny. Is he listening to you today?’ So in the first hour of this program, I made mention of the fact that I love the idea in the Washington Post. They’ve got this very cutting story claiming that White House officials tried to pressure immigration authorities into releasing detained illegal aliens into sanctuary cities…
“…The Washington Post claims it was planned as a way to retaliate against Trump’s political adversaries. But if you read to the eighth and ninth paragraph, the Washington Post admits that it was just a blue-sky idea in a meeting where people were bandying a bunch of things around and nothing ever got proposed. And yet their headline, their headline – and by the way, it’s all over the rest of the media now:
“…’White House Proposed Releasing Immigrant Detainees in Sanctuary Cities, Targeting Political Foes.’ Well, I raised a very obvious question. Why would this be ‘Targeting’ them? Isn’t this what they want? Hasn’t Pelosi called illegal aliens ‘Little Gifts of Love’? And doesn’t San Francisco house a bunch of illegals, happily so, in sanctuary cities? ‘How could this be targeting anybody?’ I said. “Why don’t they welcome them?
“…Why aren’t sanctuary cities calling the White House and saying, ‘Finally, we’re on the same page. We’ll be glad to take them. We will happily take these little gifts of love’? I went through 20 minutes of this pointing out the sheer hypocrisy. “How in the world can this be a bad thing? Sanctuary cities love sanctuary cities. They love themselves. They love illegal immigrants. Pelosi calls ’em ‘Little Gifts of Love.’ How in the hell can flooding sanctuary cities with illegals be ‘targeting political foes’ unless they don’t really want them…?
“Unless this sanctuary city thing is just some bogus construct to fool a bunch of gullible, lunatic leftists who need a continuing reason to hate Donald Trump?”
“Months after the 2016 Oscars, Hollywood feminists railed against President Donald Trump for a 2005 videotape in which he made crude remarks about what a powerful man can do to women. They shared their outrage on Twitter – Cher, Patricia Arquette, Debra Messing, Lena Dunham, and Ashley Judd. The day after Trump’s inauguration, the Hollywood feminists marched in Washington, D.C., in Park City, Utah (where they hold the Sundance Film Festival), and other cities. There in the Utah ‘feminist’ crowd was one Harvey Weinstein. Judd, who notoriously screamed grotesqueries at Trump at the March on Washington, was the first big name to allow her name to be used in The New York Times story on Weinstein. Dunham wrote in the Times that she regretted shaking Weinstein’s hand at a Weinstein-organized rally for Hillary Clinton in 2016. She had heard the rumors but ultimately ‘made a calculation’ since she desperately wanted Clinton to win. Can today’s young women in Hollywood count on an anti-Weinstein ‘choir’ to ‘resonate’ around the entertainment industry? The Catholic Church has taken dramatic steps to prevent the abuse of children. It is Hollywood’s turn to put its money where its mouth has been…”

Maybe Chuck Schumer should be investigated for his ties to Russia.
