Hugh Lipsius

Hate judges and then judges and then forgives.

It is written,

Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness...Genesis 1:26 God created man in His own image...Genesis 1:27
Then God Blessed them...Genesis 1:28
And God said, " See, I have given you every herb that yeilds seed which is on the face of the earth, and every tree whose fruit yeilds seed, to you it shall be for food...Genesis 1:29
Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good...Genesis 1:31

Self-exaltation uses one method of deceit to create doubt through a well concealed lie...its result is to form a desire to be like God...yet what the result becomes is fear that you had not enough faith to understand and believe that God has already created you in His own desire to control the creation of that image can only mar what was already created good...your own hands cannot cause one rose to bloom...the fear comes from discovering that you were not happy with what God Himself an effort to cover up your develop your own lie out of pride, not wanting to be seen as the imperfect creature you have now now hide behind the new image in your shame, attempting to show an image you think will be pleasing to those around you in an effort to exalt yourself to them...but knowing in your heart that it is false... your own method now becomes the same deceit that tricked you in the first place and you attemt to cause others to become like have now become an instrument of practice what he desired...which is for you to bow down to him...and for others to bow down to you.
Perhaps you are judging others for the imperfections that maybe only you've determined...perhaps you condemn them for what you see only on the can't look into their you condemn them for what you perceive of their no no motives for what others think and act you judge, condemn and hate according to your own standard...according to yoour own laws...because they are not like you...who thinks you are become the lawless one...and you don't even know that you are manipulating others through the sams lies and deceit and hypocracy that your father, the devil taught set yourself set youself look down upon and think that somehow you are more blessed than those you sit in judgement of.
For it is written,
Now the serpant was more cunning (crafty and shrewd, especially in deception...made with or showing skill; ingenious: to know these) than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, "Has God indeed said , You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" ( He was testing the woman to see if she could be manipulated).
And the woman said to the serpant, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden;
but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, "You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die." (She engaged the serpant in thought).
Then the serpant said to the woman, "You will not surely die.
For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." Genesis 3:1-5.
(here the serpant introduces a cunning lie...this created a doubt which led to the downfall of man...upon eating the fruit, the woman then became an instrument of the serpant when she offered some to the man...the man wasa first to sin though, because his love for the woman was greater than his love for God...fearing the woman's rejection, he said nothing to persuad her to obey God's commandment but instead joined her in eating the fruit...his was the first, and far greater error for he was not deceived by the serpant, but was deceived by the lust of his own heart...had he kept before her the words of God's commandment not to eat of the fruit...she would never have been able to hear the words of the serpant...she ate first...but he said nothing to prevent her from it...and then joined her).
O, what a wreched man I am...I thank God for Jesus Christ my Lord
