No, but presuming to establish the metrics by how well another keeps the commandments and judging another by one’s own standard of “commandment keeping” can lead to Christ saying to one’s conscience..” How can you presume to tell your neighbor to get the slivers out of his eye when you haven’t taken the logs out your own eye?”

We can’t even keep the commandments on our own or have the perfect wisdom to know when such would apply or other such not apply without the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts! Yet I’ll give you a has to do with Love and grace!

Yes HELLOOOOOOOOO! I’ve seen no mention of the active work of the Holy Spirit who “writes God’s laws in our hearts” in this discussion thus far.

Did I judge? NO! Speaking the Word of God is not judging, it is called edifying.

1Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
1Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
1Th 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
1Th 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1Th 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
1Th 5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
