Hello, and welcome to another video from the only source of information that you need to not only survive the current apocalypse, but actually enjoy it, and today’s video is going to be about a very popular verse that nearly everyone alive in the Western World has committed to memory. At Matthew7:1 according to the King James Version of the Bible, Jesus said:
“Judge not that ye be not judged.”
In my life, many self professed Christians have pointed this verse out to me whenever I was speaking about some vile behavior perpetrated against me by someone wicked. Obviously those doing so felt that by helping me to see the light, they were engaging in the work of the LORD.
Since I have been reading the Bible pretty much continually for about 40 years, I always felt that I should have a really good grasp of the Bible. At least as good as those that God was sending to scold me. But, no matter how many times people told me to remove the beam from my eye, I never felt like I had a beam in my eye.(Matthew7:5)
I knew that the Bible was filled with the admonition to stay away from wicked people, and could not figure out how I was suppose to do that, unless I first made a judgment call as to whether or not someone was in fact wicked.
“I have not kept company with worthless people. I will have nothing to do with hypocrites. I hate the crowds of evildoers and I will not sit in the company of the wicked.”
Happy is the man that has not walked in the counsel of the wicked ones, And in the way of sinners has not stood, And in the seat of ridiculers has not sat. But his delight is in the law of Jehovah, And in his law he reads in an undertone day and night.
This is how the Bible book of Psalms starts out. As originally recorded, this isn’t just a commandment to be good, and not to be bad, but an admonition to stay away from those who are bad.
Years ago, when I was a member of the Jehovah’s Witness Faith, I remember hearing this verse in exactly this way week after week.
It bothered me that the people quoting these verses were often the most vile bullies at the Kingdom Hall, but I kept telling myself, that these men had been put in place to act as “Elders Over God’s Flock”. Perhaps God understands that it takes a bully to teach people how to be good.”
I know that may sound stupid to most people listening to this information, but having been abused all of my life, I badly wanted to believe that God had some kind of organization where a person, like myself, could take refuge from this violent world. Over time I would learn that no such religious organization exists.
But, I learned a lot about Matthew7:1 just from paying attention to who was the most obsessed with promoting it. I was very well aware that meek loving people would willingly submitted to the admonition not to be judgmental.
But those who were actively engaged in promoting this ideal were always the most wicked members of every religious organization that I have ever been involved with. The priest, ministers, elders, ministerial servants, pastors, and preachers of every congregation, of every religion that I have ever participated in, were always much more devious and wicked, than the simple people that were filling the pews.
Anytime that I spoke to anyone about the abuses that I was aware of, I was accused of being judgmental. When I was a Jehovah’s Witness, there was a very well defined system for keeping people from questioning how things were done in the congregation.
Anytime that one of the elders molested a child, or defrauded some poor widow, and got away with it, we were told that the body of elders was aware of the situation, and was handling it. Another thing that we were told was that it was our Christian duty not to speak of such things with anyone other than the appointed elders.
To anyone that has ever been involved with the Jehovah’s Witness faith, it is a well known fact, that even though the wicked are rarely disfellowshipedd, those who openly reveal what the elders are up to, usually are.
The primary reason that I am highlighting the behavior of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, is because I was a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, as an adult, for much longer than I have ever been involved with any other religion. In other words, I can speak about their misconduct from personal experience.
Secondly, in recent years, it has become quite common for the behavior of the Jehovah’s Witness Hierarchy to be publicly exposed. The reputation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses now rivals that of the Catholic Church. As such, I feel much more comfortable using them as an example. The policies of the Jehovah’s Witness religion, in handling such matters, have become a matter of public record.
However. It must be understood that this kind of conduct is not unique to Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Catholics. It isn’t even unique to Christianity. Reports from all around the world, involving the leaders of all of mankind’s faiths, are every bit as evil and perverted as the ones that are well publicized here in The West.
All religions Earth wide, are run by hypocrites. All have systems in place for hiding the deeds of the clergy class. All have very abusive policies in place for dealing with whistle blowers, and all have doctrinal teachings against judging others, that sound very similar to Christianity’s admonition not to do so.
Obviously I was not aware of everything that everybody did in their personal lives, but I knew enough to understand who was a bully, and who was not. I had witnessed similar behavior in every part of Civilization’s Trinitarian Empire.
Throughout human history, all civilizations from the very beginning all the way to our day, have been made up of Satan’s three foundation stones.
As represented by the Eye of Providence, also known as the “All Seeing Eye” those three principle support systems of civilization have always been the governmental system, the economic system, and the religious system. Without one, the other two would not function.
It is Civilization’s trinity that is the model for all of the trinitarian religions Earth Wide. The father, son, and holy spirit, of Christianity are based on the governmental systems, economic systems, and religious systems of civilization.
To get to the top positions in any of those systems takes a an insane level of evil that very few people are capable of. But even those that achieve a relatively low position in any of those organizations have to be more evil than the general population. Only the most competitive stand any chance of success in a world where competitiveness is regarded as a good quality.
I understood from an early age that most religions primarily focused on shunning people that engaged in things like Gambling, Drugs, Loud Music, and Skimpy Outfits”, which always struck me as rather odd.
I had always thought of bullying as a much more evil sin than any of that, and can’t remember any pastor, priest, preacher, or elder ever bringing up the subject of bullying. It seemed to me as if every religion Earth Wide was avoiding the subject of aggressive behavior. It was as if the religions of man were simply making people feel so guilty about inconsequential things, that they would not pay attention to the more important things.
The first 40 years of my life were spent in and around religion. I understood that there had to be a creator, and that religious people had a reputation for worshiping that creator. I wanted to be part of something bigger than myself.
I personally was never all that interested in pointless rituals, or religious rules, but felt that if millions of people believed in such things, then perhaps it was me that needed correcting. Perhaps I could learn something from such people.
I was not taught the Bible by religion. I read the Bible on my own, at a time in my life, when I was not involved in any religion at all.
I was drawn to god’s word by the simplicity of Jesus’ message. Anyone reading the Bible from start to finish would instantly recognize the repeating admonition placed on being loving, and not being selfish. Philippians1:10 puts it this way:
“I continue praying that your love may abound still more and more with accurate knowlege and full discernment that you may make sure of the more important things, so that you may be flawless, and not stumbling others up to the day of Christ.”
I have always loved that phrase, “Make sure of the more important things” It sums up perfectly the difference between religion and truth. This verse was quoted regularly at the meetings of Jehvah’s Witnesses, as a means of convincing their worshipers that they were somehow different from the other religions that focused on the less important things.
In God’s eyes, religion is religion. Please don’t attempt to convince yourself that there are such things as good religion, and bad religion. Wickedness may come in many varieties, but no variety of wickedness is God’s favorite.
The Apostle Paul actually left a written record of what kind of character traits to look for when trying to determine if a person is good or evil. As described, the two different kinds of people are those who are selfish, and those who are not.
All of Galatians Chapter 5 is about this single subject. Verses 14, and 15, say:
“For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another”
Obviously to anyone with an open mind, and a little bit of common sense, this describes completely the difference between a wicked person and a righteous person. Those who love one another obviously would not want to control one another or harm one another. Those doing these things would expose what kind of person they are by their deeds.
To a religious person, the definition of love as taught by their pastors might not be accurate, so Paul went into much greater detail just so that there would be no mistake about what kinds of people to associate with, and what kinds of people to avoid.
At Galatians4:16 he says:
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”
Sexual conduct has always been an important aspect of righteousness among those who are involved in religion, and obviously that is what Christianity’s translators were trying to highlight as this verse has been rendered.
However the archaic language used here does not do this verse justice. The Greek words epithymia and sarx which are translated as lust of the flesh, would be more accurately translated as desires of the flesh, and could be anything that a fleshly person could desire. Not just things of a sexual nature.
Galatians5:22 lists all of the things that would be the opposite of the desires of the flesh, calling them the fruit of the spirit.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and control of self. Against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
All of the things that Paul spoke of as fruit of the spirit are very similar in nature. All indicate that a person, who is filled with the holy spirit, would recognize themselves as a small part of the greater whole. All of these characteristics could be used to describe someone that puts others ahead of themselves. A selfish person would very obviously not meet Paul’s Criteria.
We should rightfully expect a wicked person to be the opposite of a righteous person, and that the character traits of such a person would be the opposite as well. At Galatians5:19-21 it says:
“Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, drunkenness, orgies, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God”
Once again, the characteristics defining a wicked person seemingly are predominantly sexual in nature. We should question why that is.
The opposite of love, would be hate. The opposite of control of self, would be control of others. The opposite of patience would be intolerance. In fact about half of the English words that are used here would describe wicked character traits that obviously are the opposites of those good character traits.
The verse concludes with the phrase “Things Like These” Character traits such as enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, and envy are all similar to one another. They are all very much what we would expect to see in this verse. All could be described as “Things Like These”.
But……. Sex outside of marriage, would not logically be perceived as the opposite of love. We would not automatically think of orgies as the opposite of joy. Plus, things like sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, drunkenness, and orgies are not at all like enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, and envy.
The comparison that Paul makes here, according to the English translations, simply doesn’t make any linguistic sense.
Christian churches have always emphasize the wickedness of sex acts between people that are not legally married, or sex acts between people that are married to others, but in the original language, that is not what these verses are about. In Greek, all of the character traits that describe those desires of the flesh, are about competition. The struggle to get ahead.
In the original Greek, there is nothing recorded here about sex being wicked in and of itself. The word that is rendered here as sexual immorality would more be more accurately rendered as using sex as a tool to get ahead. Whether by blackmail, or by intentionally marrying into a wealthy or powerful family, simply as a means of improving one’s social status.
The Greek word porneia, which is always associated with sex, and is in fact where we get our English word pornography, does not necessarily have anything to do with sex. It is formed from the Greek word porneuo Strong’s G4203, which simply means to sell off, or as we might say in English, to sell out. This word as used in Greek could mean selling ourselves out in any way.
Another word found throughout the New Testament is poneros. (Strong’s G4190) Poneros is similar to our English word evil. This word is consistently translated as wickedness, or evil, in most translations of the Bible.
As originally used in the Greek language, Porneuo means to sell something, porneia means to sell oneself. A politician or salesman telling you what you want to hear in order to get your vote, or get your money would be porneia. Making love without a license from the state would not.
In fact, even the act of getting married would qualify as porneia when done as a means of improving your financial or social status. Porneia is the reason that so many fat, ugly, decrepit, old Hollywood stars, wealthy economic leaders, and powerful politicians are married to sexy, beautiful, healthy, young men and women.
Even getting married, to ensure that the father or mother of your children is bound by law to provide care or resources for your children could qualify as porneia.
Another word that is poorly and likely intentionally mistranslated at this verse would be sorcery. Pharmakeia Strong’s G5331 means poisoning and has nothing whatsoever to do with sorcery, or witchcraft or divination or any other such concept. Pharmakeia is where we get our English word pharmaceutical.
I have heard many of Christianity’s leaders try to make this word about drug addiction, or about the use of drugs to call forth demons, but the reality is that this word as used in the Bible always means poison, or poisoning.
Another English word that is used here, which does not fit in with the surrounding verses is drunkenness. Obviously using alcohol to deaden one’s mind can’t be a good thing, but it certainly would not be something that would be the opposite of any of the qualities that Paul calls the “Fruit Of The Spirit”
Throughout the Bible poison and drunkenness are often spoken of together. Drunkenness in the Bible is not limited to alcohol consumption. Poisoning is not limited to things that a person takes in through their mouth.
“Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.”
The dragons and asps spoken of in this verse are not your typical reptiles. Throughout the Bible words such as drunkenness and poison are often associated with the teachings of Satan and his demons.
Anything taught by Satan, through the public education system, the churches, or the networks should be considered spiritual poison. To those of us who are filled with the Holy Spirit, the actions of those modeling their lives on such teachings would would make them appear to us as drunkards.
All lies originate with Satan, the father of the institution of lying. At Revelation17:2, and 18:3 drunkenness, and fornication are closely associated with the teachings of demons.
The verses found at Galatians Chapter 5, are all about the things that people do to improve their social status, their own flesh, so to speak, without any regard as to the affect that their actions will have on others.
If you think about what I am telling you and keep an open mind, as you are reading Galatians Chapter 5, you will see that everything that I am saying is makes perfect sense. In fact if you should take the time to research the word origins of the original Greek words found at these verses, you will see that what I am saying is undeniable.
Understanding that God has given us clear instructions for distinguishing between righteous people and wicked people, we need to find a way to make what Jesus said at Matthew7:1, agree with Galatians Chapter 5.
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged.”
As taught by Christianity the Bible seems to be contradicting itself. But, this is not the only scripture available for our study about the subject of judging.
“ My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
Obviously Galatians Chapter 5 is about how God Judges. At Matthew7:1 Jesus was warning about Judging according to the rules of civilization. James was speaking very clearly in a way that all of us can relate to. But if we examine the words of James more closely, Jesus warning about Judging takes on even more meaning. As verse 3 states:
“If you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place, have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?”
At this verse, according to the Bible, it isn’t just thinking poorly of someone that is considered judging. Verses 3 and 4 clearly state that admiring someone for their accomplishments, would also be considered judging, and not just judging, but evil judging. The Bible leaves no room for interpretation here.
When the resurrection begins, it will become obvious just how pitiable mankind’s craving for power and prestige are. God’s Holy Spirit will be recognized by everyone remaining, and no one alive will ever again be competitive and selfish.
No one will ever be more successful, or more powerful, or more accomplished than anyone else alive on the Earth. There will be no such thing as social status. We will all be brothers and sisters.
In the mean time, we all need to be aware that most of our neighbors are not filled with the the Holy Spirit, but instead are full of themselves. Their fruit will expose them for what they are.
All of those that believe in Civilization and the system of punishment and reward that has been put in place by the God of Civilization, must be considered dangerous. They know who and what we are, and will do everything in their power to make us into one of them.
Those who willingly participate in the competition that defines human society, are not to be trusted. Those who separate themselves according to their nationality, race, gender, or religion, will not be able to tolerate finding out that you do not. The poisonous teachings of Satan have rendered them drunkards. Such people will do everything in their power to poison you, and make you drunk as well.
Anyone who puts their faith in the Social Hierarchy that exists under Satan’s rulership must be avoided. They intuitively know that what they are doing is wrong.
The only way that they can justify their selfish behavior is by convincing themselves, that everyone puts their faith in Satan’s pyramid scheme. It is as if they are already planning on avoiding God’s judgment by claiming that “Everyone Was Doing It”. They know that such an excuse will not work as long as so much as one person alive, is not involved.
When Abel was killed it was not because of some wickedness on his part, it was because he was righteous.(1John3:12) Two thousand years later a man named Peleg lost his life. He was the very first person to die after the flood.(Genesis10:25) Just as in the story of Cain and Abel, it is likely that Peleg died at the hands of his brother Joktan, for the same reason that Abel died, at the hands of his brother Cain.
In our day the war that began with Peleg’s death continues on. Moving about from nation to nation, brother killing brother, and usually for the same reason.
When questioned by God about his brother, Cain replied “Am I my brother’s keeper”(Genesis4:9-10) According to the Bible the answer to that question would be YES! But God made it much more clear.
“Listen. Do you hear that? That is the sound of your brother’s blood crying out to me from the ground”
Every decision that we make affects the lives of those around us. Whether we literally murder someone as Cain did, or just make things a little more difficult for our neighbors. The Holy Spirit is everywhere. There is no possible way for aggressive, competitive, selfish people to hide what they are, from God.
We can exhibit the character traits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and control of self. Knowing that when we do, it makes God happy.
Or we can achieve great things in the world by being aggressive, competitive, and selfish.
It would be foolish, and even wicked to judge people as the world judges. What someone does in their personal life shouldn’t concern us. Their sexual activities are none of our business. Their position in the social order, should not impress us or disgust us. What kind of music they listen to, is their business.
To judge things as man judges things is wicked. “Judge not lest thou be judged.”
But if you want to survive, it would be a good idea to use common sense and see things as God sees things. Galatians Chapter 5 clearly defines the character traits of a wicked person, and the character traits of a righteous person. Paul did not write the Book of Galatians without purpose.
According to John12:31, The ruler of Civilization has already been judged. It is not judgmental on our part to speak of it. By the same word it is very easy to determine who is following the ruler of Civilization, and recognize that they, just like their god have already been judged as well.
Satan his demons, and all of his human followers, know that their time is running out. They are going to do everything in their power to get you on their team before the end comes. Remaining righteous may keep you from climbing the ladder of success, it may even cost you your life. But the reward will be great.
According to Psalms37:10:
“In just a little while, the wicked will be gone. No matter how carefully you look for them, you will not be able to find them. They will not be permitted to remain in their place.”
If you don’t want to survive, don’t listen to me.
