A New Creature or a Judge?

“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven” (Luke 6:37). The one whose disposition is such by grace that he never judges and never condemns, will of necessity not come into judgment and condemnation. Such an one has passed from death into life, because it is only by becoming a new creature, that men can refrain from pronouncing judgment on others.
