The Nature of It

There's something about the recognition of personal sin that either makes one a quick repenter or an even quicker judge. When your own sin is revealed in all of its ugliness or when revelation is brought about by the judgments of others, it's easy to see those same faults in your accusers. When people judge unrighteously they do so in order to cover or diminish the sins of their own hearts--all is put aright because they have found a target for their guilt and are thus relieved.

"But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world." I Corinthians 11:31-32
