“And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.” (John 12: 47)
Jesus came with love, with peace, with salvation. Condemnation and judgment played no part in his mission and it shouldn’t be a part of our thinking or living either. Christian Science practice excludes judgment, for judgment ignores the perfect Love of God, denies the first commandment.
Ears deaf to Truth or antagonistic to it are not to be judged. Who among us has not questioned, doubted, feared, and taken the side against our own better sense of things? Our humanity and that of others is not to be cursed, but to be uplifted. The personal sense of anyone isn’t their full potential or the reality of their being. We are all so much more, and the healing comes by seeing that, for ourselves and for all.
So, let’s not be personal judges. God alone is the judge and He judges His children righteously, by requiring their progressive understanding. An unbeliever is no less a child of God and no less worthy to know that. Our compassion is needed toward others and towards ourselves. We can’t save the world if we don’t love the world. Human judgment limits all things. Divine Love expands, unlimits, and unites all things in one great, loving, healing good.
