God gives us perfect judgement when we follow his word. This doesn 't mean we aren 't to judge, since we are given perfect judgement through Christ and his law. Mark them and dont fall because of them. If you know someone isnt doing Gods will, which is judgment, then since you have wisdom from Gods word and law, dont stumble in their ways of thinking and acting. If you ignore your judgement then you will find yourself at fault with God. He gave you the wisdom. You are without excuse. In this passage its talking about one sinner nonbeliever to another non believer They dont have perfect judgement because they are not key phrase in practice. Since they dont have a clue whats right and wrong they accuse the other for something and dont have the judgment practice that they are doing the same. So if they do know Christ and practice they may be with perfect judgment. Seeing knowledge without practice only increases guilt. Dont think that this says not to be judge. We are in the likeness of Christ and he is the ultimate judge and he gives us power in all he has. Same reason as the judge in a court of law. He receives power from God to have perfect judgement.

i feel that all words in this book are real, for god is real and all his words they are the way of life ,and this part is true you cant judge some one if you are doing the same things you must look at your self with honesty and how you really are for god loves all but he hates sin and we must repent and change. share and be apart of true love know one will every love you like christ or can do the goodiness of christ holy the king of kings.
