Finger Pointing

In the last few days a self-proclaimed religious leader accused certain members of Congress of being like Judas. He clearly didn’t mean it as a complement.

Now, I’m not a religious leader or an ordained minister, but I know that we are instructed not to judge. When we act out of conscious and after deep thought, the last thing we need to hear is a self-righteous individual second guessing what is in our heart.

You may say, “Webb you are doing the same thing the preacher is doing — judging,” and I guess to some extent I am. It is easy to fall down that well. But since our preacher is getting national attention by calling members of Congress like Judas, I think it is okay to say on a little read blog that when we point a finger at someone, three are pointing back at ourself. We should leave the judging to God, and work on our own faults. We all have plenty to go around.
