Matthew 7-1-6. Most people stop reading this passage after the first two words. Doing so is utter folly and does a gross disservice to the text

  1. This text does not condemn judging:

  2. Without question, this section of text is directed at the Jewish leaders of the day. Who in that social context was more guilty of the type of unrighteous judging than the scribes and Pharisees?

  3. Jesus concludes this paragraph with an accusation of these hypercritical hypocrites as dogs and hogs (both unclean animals). But how does this verse fit the previous paragraph?

Conclusion: When we worship to please men, preach to please men, or have any other motive in worship rather than glorifying God, we give what is holy to the dogs and cast our pearls before swine; Psalm 29:1-2; Psalm 96:8-9.
