This is another look at judging others. This is at least the second time we have discussed this in the past few weeks. Is it okay to judge if one is willing to accept the same judgement?

Romans 2 NKJV
1 Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.

4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
