Matthew 7:1 - "Judge not, that you be not judged"

One of the most misunderstood passages in Scripture is Matthew 7:1.  People get passionate about this topic or that, and someone will invariably pipe in, "Judget not...".  It is then usually followed by a misapplication of the passage. 

But, what does it mean?  And, what does it not mean?

Fr. Ignatius Manfredonia of the Franciscans of the Immaculate does an excellent job of explaining this passage.  It's just under 8 minutes.  Go ahead.... let it run.

Te Deum Laudamus! Home
The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!

The obedient do not judge; rather, it is the disobedience who judge the Catholic Church.
