JUNE 9 2006 - JESUS CHRIST (c.6 BC - c.30 AD)
"WHY DO YOU SEE THE SPECK THAT IS IN YOUR BROTHER'S EYE, BUT DO NOT NOTICE THE LOG THAT IS IN YOUR OWN EYE ? OR HOW CAN YOU SAY TO YOUR BROTHER, 'LET ME TAKE THE SPECK OUT OF YOUR EYE', WHEN THERE IS THE LOG IN YOUR OWN EYE ?
"YOU HYPOCRITE, FIRST TAKE THE LOG OUT OF YOUR OWN EYE, AND THEN YOU WILL SEE CLEARLY TO TAKE THE SPECK OUT OF YOUR BROTHER'S EYE."
(Source : The Bible - St Matthew Chapter 7 vs 1-5)
(Luke 7, 37-38)
The only passage of the bible I can quote from memory - although I remember it slightly different from that... Must have been a different version of the bible I read from at school because it said "pressed down and running over" rather than "shaken together".
I always remember this when I see christian fundamentalists on TV busily judging and condemning everything from teenage mums to Jerry Springer the opera.
