“Judging others makes us blind, whereas love is illuminating. By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil, and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are,” Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Dietrich penned those words, while waiting to be executed by Adolph Hitler for crimes against Germany. His manual scripts were smuggled out of prison by guards. They did so because they were impressed with his serenity. Knowing that he was facing execution by being hung. They noticed his serenity most profoundly, as he marched bravely up the stairs unaccustomed to meet his executioner. Much of this and more can be discovered in his book, Letters from Prison.
On Judging: “Therefore you are inexcusable, O people, whoever you are who judges. For in whatever you judge in another, you condemn yourself. For you, who judge practice the same things. But we know, that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. And do you think, O people, you who judge those practicing such things, and do the same. Do you think that you will escape the judgment of God? For it may well be that they who do the judging, are the ones in need of repentance.”(cp. Romans 2:1-4).
