Those Who Judge Others Should Consider Who will Judge Them

We live in a world of fear and violence among those who point their fingers and are quick to prejudge others without knowing them. Those who judge others simply for no others reasons other than bias feelings toward them should know, there is only one judge who all people will stand before.

No one is in a position to judge another individual as a sinner, while considering him/herself to be without sin. Only God is in a position to judge us according to his wisdom, based on his laws of what he considers to be a sinful act committed.
When we read the text below, we get a complete understanding that the body of which our soul dwell in will always be imperfect. Mentally, we understand that it is wrong to commit a sinful act, and many of us desire to avoid committing wrongful acts. There is within our nature a weakness to yield to temptations. In order to resist temptations we need spiritual strength.
It is impossible to live above the nature of sin. It will always be a challenge that every human being will have to deal with. Therefore, perfection is an ever pursuing goal. But, our hope to please God is through salvation for our souls. That is achieved through prayer, and treating all people the way we would want to be treated.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12) K.J.V
For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwells no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good, I find not.
For the good that I would, I do not.  But the evil which I would not, that I do.
Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it but sin that dwells in me.
I find that there is a law, that when I would do good, evil is present with me.
For I delight in the law of God after the inward man.
For I see another law in my members warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity  to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am!
Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
I thank God through Christ Jesus our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God;
but with the flesh the law of sin. (Romans 7:18-25) K.J.V
