Matthew 7:1 - 7:5

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discourse, Steve Gregg sheds light on the misconstrued scripture verse Matthew 7:1-5. He clarifies that the verse encourages us not to judge others based on their appearance, but rather to hold ourselves to the same standard. He highlights the importance of making moral calls without being hypocritical, and emphasizes the need to judge righteously and with charity. Ultimately, he concludes that while God is the only one who truly knows right from wrong, as moral beings, humans have the ability to discern and make righteous judgments.
