Removing the beam from one’s own eye seems to be an impossible task for too many blind still persons.. It seems that too may critics, preachers especially on the internet , falsely still do believe that preaching the Gospel to others, is an acceptable alternative to them living it now, and they do falsely believe that God overlooks their own sins of the neglect, abuse of others, gossip, slander, cheating, lying, stealing, tax evasions.. Now my son and daughters and my nieces and nephew all do here need to stop their lies, slander too as well as other family members.
My own dad sadly was well known as a continual critic of others, who saw himself as perfect, but anyone else at fault.. he continually refused to admit to any of his own faults, so he never changed them .. My dad believed that (Gal 6:7 KJV) only applied to others. “ Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” he next suffered immensely from a physical illness for 6 months before his death..
A personal knowledge of the Bible and it’s contents still also does not justify one overlooking one own sins.. Funny how so many persons can clearly see the faults in others, but they still are in a false denial of their own unacceptable sins.
For all those people who take personal sins lightly they realy still should read the Bible and note how God through the old and new Testament dealt negatively with any unrepentant of personal sins, starting with the life of Adam and Eve, or Joseph or David and many others..
Mat 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
(1 Tim 1:15 KJV) This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
(Jude 1:15 KJV) To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Clearly one too often pointing the fingers solely at the others is a false diversion, cover-up, a false excuse for one still not dealing with one’s own sins.. for what one often rathers sees in the others seems even to be one’s own shortcomings anyway..
