لا تَدِينُوا لِئَلاَّ تُدَانُوا. فَبِمَا تَدِينُونَ تُدَانُون
إنجيل القدّيس متّى07/من01حتى12/”قاَل الربُّ يَسوعُ: «لا تَدِينُوا لِئَلاَّ تُدَانُوا. فَبِمَا تَدِينُونَ تُدَانُون، وبِمَا تَكِيلُونَ يُكَالُ لَكُم.مَا بَالُكَ تَنْظُرُ إِلى القَشَّةِ في عَيْنِ أَخيك، ولا تُبَالي بِالخَشَبةِ في عَيْنِكَ؟ َلْ كَيْفَ تَقُولُ لأَخِيك: دَعْني أُخْرِجُ القَشَّةَ مِنْ عَيْنِكَ، وهَا هِي الخَشَبَةُ في عَيْنِكَ أَنْتَ؟ يا مُرائِي، أَخْرِجِ الخَشَبَةَ أَوَّلاً مِنْ عَيْنِكَ، وعِنْدَئِذٍ تُبْصِرُ جَيِّدًا فَتُخْرِجُ القَشَّةَ مِنْ عَيْنِ أَخِيك. ا تُعْطُوا المُقَدَّسَاتِ لِلْكِلاب. ولا تَطْرَحُوا جَواهِرَكُم أَمَامَ الخَنَازِير، لِئَلاَّ تَدُوسَهَا بِأَرْجُلِها، وتَرْتَدَّ عَلَيْكُم فَتُمَزِّقَكُم. إِسْأَلُوا تُعْطَوا، أُطْلُبُوا تَجِدُوا، إِقْرَعُوا يُفْتَحْ لَكُم. َمَنْ يَسْأَلْ يَنَلْ، ومَن يَطْلُبْ يَجِدْ، ومَنْ يَقْرَعْ يُفْتَحْ لَهُ. أَيُّ إِنْسَانٍ مِنْكُم يَسْأَلُهُ ٱبْنُهُ خُبْزًا فَيُعْطِيهِ حَجَرًا؟ َو يَسْأَلُهُ سَمَكَةً فَيُعْطِيهِ حَيَّة؟ فَإِذَا كُنْتُم، أَنْتُمُ الأَشْرَار، تَعْرِفُونَ أَنْ تُعْطُوا أَوْلادَكُم عَطايا صَالِحَة، فَكَمْ بِالأَحْرَى أَبُوكُمُ الَّذي في السَّمَاواتِ يَمْنَحُ الصَّالِحَاتِ لِلَّذينَ يَسْأَلُونَهُ؟ َكُلُّ مَا تُريدُونَ أَنْ يَفْعَلَهُ النَّاسُ لَكُم، إِفْعَلُوهُ لَهُم أَنْتُم أَيْضًا. هذِهِ هِيَ التَّوْرَاةُ والأَنْبِيَاء.”

الإِنْسَانَ لا يُبَرَّرُ بأَعْمَالِ الشَّريعَة، بَلْ بِالإِيْمَانِ
القدّيس بولس إلى أهل غلاطية02/من12حتى17/”يا إخوَتِي، لَمَّا قَدِمَ كِيفَا إِلى أَنْطَاكِيَة، قَاوَمْتُهُ مُوَاجَهَةً، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَسْتَحِقُّ اللَّوْم. فقَبْلَ أَنْ يَجِيءَ أُنَاسٌ مِن عِنْدِ يَعْقُوب، كَانَ يُؤَاكِلُ الوَثَنِيِّين. وَلَمَّا جَاؤُوا أَخَذَ يَنْسَحِبُ ويَتَنَحَّى، خَوْفًا مِن أَهْلِ الخِتَانَة. وجَارَاهُ سَائِرُ اليَهُودِ في مُحَابَاتِهِ، حتَّى بَرْنَابَا نَفسُهُ ٱنْجَرَّ بِمُحَابَاتِهِم. ولكِنْ لَمَّا رَأَيْتُ أَنَّهُم لا يَسْلُكُونَ مَسْلَكًا مُستَقِيمًا، بِحَسَبِ حَقِيقَةِ الإِنْجِيل، قُلْتُ لكِيفَا أَمَامَ الجَمِيع: «إِنْ كُنْتَ، وأَنْتَ يَهُودِيّ، تَعِيشُ كَالأُمَمِ لا كَاليَهُود، فَكَيفَ تُلْزِمُ الأُمَمَ أَنْ يَعيشُوا كَاليَهُود؟». نَحْنُ بِالطَّبِيعَةِ يَهُود، لا خَطَأَةٌ مِنَ الأُمَم. ولكِنَّنَا نَعْلَمُ أَنَّ الإِنْسَانَ لا يُبَرَّرُ بأَعْمَالِ الشَّريعَة، بَلْ بِالإِيْمَانِ بيَسُوعَ المَسِيح. لِذَلِكَ آمَنَّا نَحْنُ أَيْضًا بِالمَسِيحِ يَسُوع، لِكَي نُبَرَّرَ بِالإِيْمَانِ بِالمَسِيح، لا بِأَعْمَالِ الشَّريعَة، لأَنَّهُ مَا مِن بَشَرٍ يُبَرَّرُ بِأَعْمَالِ الشَّرِيعَة. فإِنْ كُنَّا، ونَحنُ نَسْعَى أَنْ نُبَرَّرَ في المَسِيح، قَد وُجِدْنَا نَحْنُ أَيْضًا خَطَأَة، فهَلْ يَكُونُ المَسِيحُ خَادِمًا لِلخَطِيئَة؟ حَاشَا”!

‘Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.
Matthew 07/01-12.: “‘Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgement you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck in your neighbour’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye?
Or how can you say to your neighbour, “Let me take the speck out of your eye”, while the log is 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 neighbour’s eye. ‘Do not give what is holy to dogs; and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under foot and turn and maul you. ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him! ‘In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.”

No one will be justified by the works of the law, But by faith in Christ
Saint Peter’s Letter to the Galatians 02/11-17/But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood self-condemned; for until certain people came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles. But after they came, he drew back and kept himself separate for fear of the circumcision faction. And the other Jews joined him in this hypocrisy, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy. But when I saw that they were not acting consistently with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, ‘If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?’We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; yet we know that a person is justified not by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ. And we have come to believe in Christ Jesus, so that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by doing the works of the law, because no one will be justified by the works of the law. But if, in our effort to be justified in Christ, we ourselves have been found to be sinners, is Christ then a servant of sin? Certainly not!
