Proof that Jesus has a sense of humor.
Basically, I think Jesus is saying to not judge others when you yourself are far from perfect. One of my pet peeves (I have a-lot) Is hypocrisy, so Jesus and i have something in common. Of course i myself am a hypocrite, and i can’t stand it. I like talking about eating healthy and staying fit, Having good work ethic and lots more idealistic stuff, and yet I fail at all of these. I don’t think it’s possible for us to not be hypocrites.
Ironically i find the worlds biggest hypocrites these days to be the majority of the church. A group of people claiming they follow the teaching of Jesus, and then ignore everything he teaches. Like judging others when you’ve got that plank in your eye. I think the church has been defined by it’s judging.
I listen to a podcast pretty frequently by the Meeting House, and i think the teacher there nailed it. One of the advantages of having an all loving all knowing god that will ultimately judge us all fairly, is that we don’t have to worrying about doing it ourselves. Easier said than done, but next time you find yourself glancing at a passerby and mentally criticizing them, think of the giant plank that’s stuck in your eye blurring your vision.
Course, this is just my opinion. If you don’t agree feel free to share.
This is my first comic post. My plan for now is to update every saturday. As this is my first, i have no idea if i can realistically keep that promise, but let’s hope so! Hey, who knows, maybe i can do two a week and don’t even know it. Thanks for reading!
