John 8:15. Judgment next time, not this

You pass judgment by human standards; I pass judgment on no-one.

Shall not the judge of all the earth do right? Abraham so challenged the Angel of the LORD above Sodom and after that in a roundabout way the LORD demonstrated that His judgment was certainly right.

Human judgment is fallible. How often do we see it in our courts! Just as the judgment of the Jews here was flawed, so it is always so. No wonder that Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, "Judge not that ye be not judged."

Even here while in person, Jesus refused to judge. He came to warn and to save. Judgment next time.
