    You know, I scanned this thread, and I've no one poster in mind, and it is clear that many are able to cite the Holy Writ rather well. I will say, with FULL admittance that my Orthodox Faith questions a FEW of the tenuous logical strings some have used to thread together there answers, just a FEW thoughts, not going at anyone, just from my side of the pew.

    THE DEADLIEST Sin, is pride, it is the reason lucifer fell, as well, it is the SAME reason he committed THREE sins that made him anathema to his very Creator.

    Besides the clearly cited Holy Writ, Jesus several times told the Pharisees they should NOT judge, and thusly I myself refuse, as an Orthodox Christian, to wade into these waters, although I admit the question is interesting.

    I would with all of this in mind, remind you that Jesus wasn't, the first time, here to judge. We were given a great commission, and all of us, to include myself, aren't spending enough time doing as we were told.
    "You Can't MAKE this stuff up."

    They cast their silver into the streets, and their gold is like an unclean thing. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord. They cannot satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it. For it was the stumbling block of their iniquity.
    Ezekiel 7:19

    The Lowest Room:
    Can you actually post something or do you only know how to cut and paste? It would help your point if you could actually say something to give the reader a' heads up' as to where you are trying to go with your cutting and pasting.

    Friend, all Im doing is posting scripture verses. In those verses Im posting, i am letting God do the talking. The verses I am posting are replies to the subject and statements being made by others who posted. The post I made here was a reply to the post made just above it in context with the threads subject, in response to THE LIE that was made supposedly coming from Jesus. The 'Capt.' stated that Jesus rebuked the pharisees several times about judging one another and judgment. He also stated that Jesus did NOT judge the first time, but does on his return. The verses I posted were in response to this erroneous position and understanding of the word. That is all.
