Matt.7
[3] Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
[4] Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye?
[5] You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

<----- this was the religious portion of my response in the "atmosphere" post in the unmoderated forum:

Les-Angry,
Matthew 7:3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
Matthew 7:3 means that you see your brother's sin in his eye. To you it looks so very big that you want your brother's sin gone. You have done a huge sin lingering in your life or a huge sin trying to take care of that little sin in your brother's life you can not see your sin.
Matthew 7:4 We can always see the sins of our brother's easier than our own sins.
Matthew 7:5 We must see our sins + take care of them in order to help others with their sins. Easy to say, hard to do!!!

Hope this clarifies Matthew 7. Talk to you soon.

WITH MUCH LOVE,
Kim

Another way to put this is that we must each first take care of our own recovery, put our own lives in order.
