Nicodemus asked, “Does our law judge a man before it hears him and knows what he is doing?” (John 7:51) Making judgments in life is something we all do and cannot fail to do. That is just the way life is! The standard we use, however, is of most importance. To a godly person it goes without saying that the standard used needs to be (and is) God’s word coupled with charity. Unfortunately, many who identify themselves as Christians fail to utilize both. The standard is not God’s, but their own, and what charity is used is merely perceived, not real. It was in this failure to apply both that the religious leaders utilized, killing the Lord. When we do what they did, we will “kill” just as they did.
