See Ya’ll in Hell

Dante’s Inferno

Matthew 7:2 (King James)

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:

and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.


I’m not religious, and I don’t fear a god, but I feel like I’ve got a pretty good handle on how people should treat one another.

But I could be wrong. There could be a special level of Hell waiting for me. Because I do judge.

I judge because I have personal high standards–standards so high that I have no tolerance for abuse of any sort.

I judge because I have no tolerance for those who try to get ahead by propagating lies, and target the defenseless.

I don’t give a fuck about creed, color, or race. What I care about is the individual quality of the human spirit.

Period.

    1. I understand that. I’m speaking to those who talk out of both sides of their mouth. I am told I am sinning by judging, but the things I am judging have to do with fair treatment and decency, while they spew racism and the like.

      1. Ah yes, this verse is a favorite amongst actual hypocrits and generally fucked up people. Instead of seeing it as a warning against hypocrisy, they see it as protection from being judged by others, which is grade-A bullshit. Another verse they may wish to familiarize themselves with is Isaiah 1.16-17:

        “Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
        remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes;
        cease to do evil,
        learn to do good;
        seek justice,
        correct oppression;
        bring justice to the fatherless,
        plead the widow’s cause.”

        Better yet, they could learn to start thinking for themselves and just quit being shitty people.

        Another verse that comes to mind isn’t from the Bible, but from Billy Joel:

        “They say there’s a heaven for those who will wait
        Some say it’s better but I say it ain’t
        I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
        The sinners are much more fun”

        Just my 2 cents.

          1. It would be aa better world if more people believed in the things in that verse, for sure.

            Speaking of people lining thier pockets with gold, wise and holy people throughout history have taught that accumilation of wealth for its own sake is worthless (The ancient Hellenistic philisophical schools of Cynicism and Stoicism, as well as Buddhism, spring to mind, though there are many others). But if we’re sticking to Bibical verses, a few excerps from Matthew 19.16-24:

            “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”

            “Truly I tell you, it will be hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

    2. 23 “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it will be hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

      When I was a kid, I had a friend whose father said this often.
