The Bible plainly tells me not to judge. I am not to judge anything that I see, hear, or feel. Do I?
Yes, I do judge.
I am also plainly told to ‘judge righteously.’ But how can I judge the evils of my world…righteously? How am I to learn and do ‘righteousness’?
The only way to learn is from others. Will it be enough if I learn from others? Will what I have been taught by others…be enough for me to learn my ‘righteousness?
NOPE, it is not enough, at least according to Matthew, for he said I would need to know MORE than those who taught me.
Wow…according to the passage, I will not get my ‘righteousness’, if I obey what I have taught.
Well…if I am not to follow the ways I have been taught, what am I to do? Just how do I learn ‘righteousness’ so I can judge righteously?
If I am to learn something, what does ‘ learn’ mean?
Oh… it means, ‘acquainted with.’
Guess that means in order for me to have my’ righteousness‘ so I can ‘judge righteously,’ I will need to be ‘acquainted’ with IT.
If acquainted means, ‘aware,’ then I will have to be...being ‘aware.’ But aware of what?
Of thinking before I judge?
‘Righteous is ‘possessing the source of all cause’…And also, ‘residing in’
That means as long as I am being ‘aware’ that I reside in God/Consciousness… I have my ‘righteousness’.
And since God is the first and only cause, I would have to get my ‘righteousness’ straight from God, not man.
Daily I must ‘reside’ in the Consciousness of God.…all the time.
Or will I reside in the ways of the world that I have been taught by man?
Righteousness is to be ‘pure.’
Pure means ‘not mixed’.
So to have ‘righteousness’, I can not be mixing my human negative judging thoughts with
Gods, all good ones.
It is my job not to lack the ‘pure righteous’ thoughts and not let the person, place or thing that is trying to get my attention cause me to mix my thoughts. Mixing causes impurity.
So then if I want ‘judge righteously’, then my mouth must only be used for praise.
Praise means ‘expressing approval.’
Do I only express ‘approval’ all day long?
No. Why not if that’s what I am told to do?
How about you?
Are you GOOD all the time by
EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE?
