I am here, Jesus.
Let me channel a message to you, as I see you lack clarity. I will discuss my teaching, “judge not so ye be not judged”.
I did teach and believe this. What I meant is that we do not know the exact relationship to the Creator that others have. Indeed, we don’t often know this regarding ourselves. And we don’t know other people’s motives, which is crucial. So how can we judge when we don’t see clearly? And my point was that we shouldn’t judge at all.
But then there is the issue of justice. People do do unjust things, and others who are adversely affected, or who are sympathetic, have every right to protest. And when political leaders do unethical things, it’s humanity’s right to speak out against these things. But they can do this without judging. Let me explain.
The key is to see these people who do these unjust things as equally loved by God. Dr. King understood this because he understood my teaching. But that didn’t stop him from actively opposing what he perceived to be injustice.
A passionate concern for justice is very different from judgmental thinking, for the former asserts the basic fairness the Creator wants, while the latter simply dismisses people. In other words, the focus and intention are completely different.
