THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD COMMAND IN THE BIBLE
"Judge notů " -- Matthew 7:1-20
It is addressed only to hypocrites (verse 5) and commands them to judge no one until they have severely judged and corrected their own lives. "Then thou shalt see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother's eye." After you cease to be a hypocrite you can correctly "judge" the other fellow. See John 7:24; 1 Corinthians 2:16; 5:7; 6:5; Hebrews 5:12-14.
THE MOST NEGLECTED COMMAND IN THE BIBLE
"Prove all things ..." -- 1 Thessalonians 5:21
If the unsaved would heed this command they would undoubtedly become saved. Isaiah 1:18; Psalms 34:8; John 7:17; 6:37. If Christians would obey it they would not be uncertain or sectarian in spiritual things. Then, not one single child of God would be mixed up with either Romanism, Modernism, Fundamentalism or Pentecostalism, for we would be built up in "the faith" and would show forth "Christ in us, the hope of glory." See 1 Corinthians 2:12; Colossians 1:25-28; Philippians 1:2728; Ephesians 4:7.
