Life in Perilous Times

Perfect Judgment – Matthew 7:1-12

Perfect Judgment – Matthew 7:1-12

Maybe you’ve heard that the Bible tells us not to judge others. Perhaps you’ve even used those words to defend a mistake or misstep on your part. And yes, while there is a verse in Matthew 7 that begins like that, when context is understood, we find there is much more...
