Whatever Judgment You Judge, You Will be Judged

Matt.7:1 "Don't judge, so that you won't be judged.
7:2 For with whatever judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with whatever measure you measure, it will be measured to you.

Powerful and very confusing words Jesus spoke here that still confuse most Christian's to say the least? The very word of God found in our bibles is a judgment against sin. Moreover, those that are Christian's are exhort to reprove one another and others? So what did Christ mean how can we as Christian's not judge others and still be a Christian?

John 8:15 You judge according to the flesh. I judge no one.

Well, first, and foremost we must have the context and time table of Christ words above. But for us to understand Christ words here we need to talk about a subject Christian's pay little or no attention to sadly, which is one of the keys that we must have to unlock the truth of the whole bible.

Galatians 4:4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent out his Son, born to a woman, born under the law,

[b][u]The Law of God[/u][/b]

Christ was sent to earth born as a man in the flesh, while in his flesh, because he was a Jew, God sent him only to his own household which was under God's righteous law given to Moses at Mount Sinai in a covenant with Israel. Israel was God's household and no other nation, none were given God's laws and/or did he make a covenant with them.

Exodus 31:18 He gave to Moses, when he finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, stone tablets, written with God's finger.

That is the context of Christ word at this point in his commission from God to speak and go only to Israel God's Household. Christ had not yet completed the law and its old covenant. Christ was to died and it would be his blood used to instituted a new covenant with a new law not for the flesh (Israel), but for the Spirit (spiritual Israel). Christ must first follow the course set before him to finish, complete, and abolish God's judgment against the flesh, that is, fleshly Israel, not the Spirit spiritual Israel.

Matthew 15:24 But he answered, "I wasn't sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel."

Those of us that have mistakenly applied Christ words here to those under the new covenant are going to find they will have very bad results producing yeast teachings that cannot be in Christ, more over the works causing works of flesh found in division and all manner of problems associated with its lust. Such judging of the flesh for those under the new covenant will only devour each other bring in the spirit of the world.

Gal.5:8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you.
5:9 A little yeast grows through the whole lump.
5:10 I have confidence toward you in the Lord that you will think no other way. But he who troubles you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.
5:11 But I, brothers, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been removed.
5:12 I wish that those who disturb you would cut themselves off.
5:13 For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don't use your freedom for gain to the flesh, but through love be servants to one another. 5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."{Leviticus 19:18}
5:15 But if you bite and devour one another, be careful that you don't consume one another. 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Wages of Sin

Under the Old Covenant law God clearly spelled out what judgment his law has against sin, what penalty we all must pay for being born into sin: we must die in our flesh. There is no lesser penalty for sin found in our bibles under the Old Covenant Law for sin! Every person mouth was shut by the power of God's law to convict pass sentence upon and its judgment death, proving all sin and fall short of God's glory. which means God's standard not man's required a perfect man without sin to produce a perfect human race. That is “God's glory” nothing less, anything less fails short of God's glory into an idol worship which cannot be denied has some beauty and awe, but it only steal God's glory.

John 1:14 The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

1 Peter 1:19 but with precious blood, as of a faultless and pure lamb, the blood of Christ;

Hence, that is, how Adam was created (sinless), in God's own image, in God's own glory, meaning without sin. No human since Adam sinned is in God's own image, don't be fooled, or created in God's own image they are created in sin's in a corrupt image of God, in sins image that blindness us to God's glory.
Romans 1:23 and traded the glory of the incorruptible God for the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.

Christ came in God's image as a man without sin in God's glory, he alone could among all flesh reflected what God image to us. Christ did that without sinning against God perfect righteous law. In doing that he completed what none of us could as a sinner remove the curse of God's righteous judgment; God wrath was upon the flesh, by his law (for the sinful flesh).

Romans 4:15 For the law works wrath, for where there is no law, neither is there disobedience.

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we will be saved from God's wrath through him.

Context of Christ Words in God's Timetable

The words above in context to not judging are placed upon a foundation stone that Christ spoke in his most famous sermon that we call today the Sermon on the Mount. In his sermon he stop the mouth of all those putting faith in their flesh, that is, in their own righteousness under the law.

Matthew 12:42 The queen of the south will rise up in the judgment with this generation, and will condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, someone greater than Solomon is here.

Matthew 13:54 Coming into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom, and these mighty works?

Christ stated the truth what all of us that are self-righteous hate! He showed that it was a heart condition that is sin not just our actions of outwardly sinning, sin is a condition that cannot be hid by laws, or to God. If we hate our brother in our hearts we murder him, not if we did the act of murder, but if in our hearts we hated our brother we have murder him under God's righteous laws before we anyone does the act. Subsequently, ever person who is an adult has a murder at sometime in their life, in their heart, thus, proving they are a sinner falling short of God's glory!

Matt. 5:19 Whoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments, and teach others to do so, shall be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whoever shall do and teach them shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Matt. 5:21 "You have heard that it was said to the ancient ones, 'You shall not murder;'{Exodus 20:13} and 'Whoever shall murder shall be in danger of the judgment.' 5:22 But I tell you, that everyone who is angry with his brother without a cause{NU omits "without a cause".} shall be in danger of the judgment; and whoever shall say to his brother, 'Raca{"Raca" is an Aramaic insult, related to the word for "empty" and conveying the idea of empty-headedness.}!' shall be in danger of the council; and whoever shall say, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of the fire of Gehenna.{or, Hell}

That type of teaching had never been heard in Israel, and because it was never heard before it exposed the truth of the flesh which up until that moment ones could hid behind by the appearance of righteousness the law, in what is called works of law. Now by Christ words from Holy Spirit was openly exposed that none of us could by works of law remove our sins, or say we have not broken the law even the teachers of Israel. Shockingly closing the mouth of all sinners, it did not matter if the sin seemed little in the eyes of the teachers of Israel God's Household, or great, all sin despite the appearance of righteousness in dress, action, position, and teaching the law was judged by God's law as evil and it judgment was death, nothing less!

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 3:19 Now we know that whatever things the law says, it speaks to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be closed, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of God.

James 3:5 So the tongue is also a little member, and boasts great things. See how a small fire can spread to a large forest!
3:6 And the tongue is a fire. The world of iniquity among our members is the tongue, which defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature, and is set on fire by Gehenna.{or, Hell} 3:7 For every kind of animal, bird, creeping thing, and thing in the sea, is tamed, and has been tamed by mankind. 3:8 But nobody can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 3:9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who are made in the image of God.

Power of Sin

Next Christ would show them the power of sin that on their very best day by works of law could not removed or hid from God. Christ goes into a function of the body that none of us have complete control over, not even the most righteous among them.

He state this truth that if we lust in our heart for the opposite sex at anytime within our lives we had committed adultery! Once again works of law in our flesh giving the appearance of righteous holding back the physical from come out! Was still death, still evil, still falling short of God's glory.

Matt.5:27 "You have heard that it was said, {TR adds "to the ancients,"} 'You shall not commit adultery;'{Exodus 20:14}
5:28 but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.
5:29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.{or, Hell}

Sin a Permanent Stain

Now those that had thought they removed the permanent stain of sin from their flesh and its lust were judged evil by the law. What indeed could they do if they could no longer hid behind an appearance of self-righteous by acting like they kept the law perfectly? Jesus gives them the shocking solution?

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

He tells those listening to pluck out their eye that lust for sex with a woman, and/or a woman lusting for a man! However, none openly confessed they had lust in their heart for opposite sex, none jumped foreword gouging out their right eye! Not even Christ overzealous disciples wanted rid themselves of sin that badly.

Mark 3:17 James the son of Zebedee; John, the brother of James, and he surnamed them Boanerges, which means, Sons of Thunder;

Certainly none of the teachers wanted to explain how they lost an eye making them look bad in their flesh to others for the sin of adultery, how would they tell their wives, their children and friends why their eye was gouged out by there own hand? Wasn't it the appearance of righteousness in the flesh that was more important than the truth to these men? How could they humiliate themselves in the eyes of others? These are the ones that justified themselves before men by words that they were righteous because of their supreme knowledge as teachers of God's word. Christ had just stripped them of their own self-importance and glory they were stealing from YHWH.

Matthew 23:28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

John 7:24 Don't judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment."

Blind Lead the Blind

If a person is blinded in one eye by removing it in a most violent way by ones own hand not that of a priest, but of self to show how zealous they want to eradicate sin from Israel as they boast in and judged others so mercilessly for; cleanness and purifying of the flesh, what would happen if the other eye started lusting for sex? This would become an endless painful battle, would they have to remove their last eye also?

Rom.7:18 For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. For desire is present with me, but I don't find it doing that which is good. 7:19 For the good which I desire, I don't do; but the evil which I don't desire, that I practice.

Nope! That not going to work because even blind people can lust in their heart of sex! One must kill themselves, by removing the source of the lust this is the logical conclusion, rip out the heart! Now they are faced with what God gave them the law for in the first place the wages of sin, which means, we cannot stop sinning, and for us to stop we must be dead! But is this what we are telling ourselves when judging the sins of someone else flesh that is the statement Christ gave us, we can't get around it anymore than we can sin.

Psalms 49:7 none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give God a ransom for him.

Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but Yahweh weighs the motives.

Proverbs 20:9 Who can say, "I have made my heart pure. I am clean and without sin?"

Here we are forced into a situation we cannot get out of “sin” we are forced to acknowledge the truth of our fallen flesh that nothing good dwells in it, to stop us from sinning completely. We cannot ever be self-righteous if we cannot stop sinning by trying to keep God's righteous law. Furthermore, no matter how much we wipe ourselves clean by God's righteous law we still have filth in our flesh.

Rom.7:24 What a wretched man I am! Who will deliver me out of the body of this death? 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord! So then with the mind, I myself serve God's law, but with the flesh, the sin's law.

We cannot rescue ourselves out of death of sin, by any power found in anything under the Sun not even the perfect righteous law of God. No matter how incensed we are about someones uncleanness in their flesh, or even our own we cannot remove it by works of law. We cannot be God's glory as false religion has taught for thousand's of years in our flesh by strict obedience to God's laws or their group!

1 Peter 3:21 This is a symbol of baptism, which now saves you--not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

God's Wrath

Israel was under God's wrath because of its sinful flesh that could not be put away by the laws righteousness, what does that mean? If God's judgment is we are all sinners, thus, we all must pay the price for that sin by death, or God's wrath remains upon, that is, the judgment of his law, don't let anyone tell you different they are a liar wittingly or unwittingly. The wrath of God is the judgment that we must die if we remain in sin it is not a little fairly tale. if a State gives someone the death penalty for breaking the law that is the highest degree of wrath against the person actions, is it not? It not as some imagine a good life on earth ending in death completing a wonderful full life, No! God's wrath for sinning is death, death is not a reward in being honor by men for our great works, death is a ugly penalty for sinning against God, death is an enemy of God that he did not create in his glory.

1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death.

1 Corinthians 15:56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

Now we have the context of why Christ stated if we judge others by death, the law, we also judge ourselves that did not mean Israel was not under the wrath of God's law what it does mean is they were being judged for being sinners under the law. It simply meant in context those in charge of God's law were no better off than those they were judging, it all ended in the final judgment for the flesh set out by God's law - death. Subsequently, not as many teachers believe and worldly judges think that upholding the law makes them more righteous a less sinner exempt from the laws judgment for their zeal than those they judge breaking the law, it was not true under the righteous law of God. Nor is it true today for Christian's by using the law.

Romans 3:20 Because by the works of the law, no flesh will be justified in his sight. For through the law comes the knowledge of sin.

Romans 4:15 For the law works wrath, for where there is no law, neither is there disobedience.

Hebrews 7:19 (for the law made nothing perfect), and a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.

Measuring out judgment of the law was but one single judgment that all of us must received back death because we cannot make ourselves a non-sinner by our own good works, even if we use a good and righteous law of God.

Man's Anger Does not Work out God righteousness

God's righteousness is sinlessness, it that simple, so man's anger against those sinning can make another man sinless, so it does not work out God's righteousness. What they measure out too others is their own hate for sin that is found in their own body.

Not a little sin they perceive in a brothers misconduct, but a whole tree of sin in themselves they cannot uproot by anything within themselves by works of law will not and cannot uprooting their tree of sin! The fruit of sins tree cannot give them the fruit of everlasting life, for everlasting life was not found in the righteous law of God for any sinner. Christ was rewarded everlasting life because he was the only person not a sinner on earth that keep the law to God's standards without sinning. No matter how much we want to believe all the lies about Christ sinning God declared him perfect that is he completed the law for us, by his sinless life.

God's righteousness, his glory, that is, remember means not sinning was first found in Adam, and lastly in Christ. Thus, God's righteousness for us in found in Christ, who is not under the law of Israel any longer once for all times putting away his flesh being made alive in spirit!
Romans 14:4 Who are you who judge another's servant? To his own lord he stands or falls. Yes, he will be made to stand, for God has power to make him stand.

The power of God's law given to Israel for the flesh, was stripped of its authority over Christ, it lost all authority over Christ because it could not judge him in the flesh any longer. So we cannot know Christ in the flesh any longer. Moreover, it is a pointless and fruitless endeavor in a Christian's life to dig and dig to try to find some fleshly act Christ did while one earth in his flesh in speech and/or action so one can reconcile with their own sinful flesh judging Christ in the flesh without judging themselves. That only proves one thing they are an unrighteous person seeking their own righteousness to discredit what God has done in exulting his Son Christ Jesus as ruler of all. made into the exact image of God himself!

Heb.1:1 God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
1:2 has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds.
1:3 His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself made purification for our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
1:4 having become so much better than the angels, as he has inherited a more excellent name than they have.
1:5 For to which of the angels did he say at any time, "You are my Son. Today have I become your father?"{Psalm 2:7} and again, "I will be to him a Father, and he will be to me a Son?"{2 Samuel 7:14; 1 Chronicles 17:13}
1:6 Again, when he brings in the firstborn into the world he says, "Let all the angels of God worship him."

Col.2:13 You were dead through your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh. He made you alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,
2:14 wiping out the handwriting in ordinances which was against us; and he has taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross;
2:15 having stripped the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in eating, or in drinking, or with respect to a feast day or a new moon or a Sabbath day,
2:17 which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is Christ's.

Making All Things New

If we profess to be a Christian's in Christ, that is, in his life, and his life in us, why would we uses laws of death for created for the old judging us into death for the new? Moreover, it we teach that God is using both than we call God and Christ a liar by our own sinful flesh that has been judged a liar and proven a liar in God's court room in front of the witness of billions of angels that have never sinned!

Revelation 21:5 He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." He said, "Write, for these words of God are faithful and true."

1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out the old yeast, that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed in our place.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.

We are then seeking self-righteousness over Christ righteousness which is the new covenant. Are we choosing to remain under death God's wrath for the pride of judging other in their flesh? Do we stay in a religion that is under sin and death instead being in Christ were we know no one by the flesh any longer?

2 Corinthians 5:16 Therefore we know no one after the flesh from now on. Even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more.

Romans 8:8 Those who are in the flesh can't please God.

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn't have the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.

Romans 8:12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

Do we send people to life, or death, to follow the rules of our religion. Then as Christ stated we our unwittingly or wittingly judging ourselves and our students. We are putting upon others as yoke that Christ painfully died to free us from. Why would we then put it upon others? Do we think ourselves exempt because we consider ourselves a teacher like the Pharisees? Do we teach God is going to clean up our religion with strong leadership upholding the power of judging the flesh? Then simply put, we are not in the new covenant we are under our own self-inflicted judgment for the evil in our own heart that wants to see justice done to the flesh that is already dead to God's judgment proving there is no way out of death from sin without the release of the power of the flesh in Christ Jesus.

Romans 5:21 that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

If we chose both the new law and old we are in the middle ground Christ warned us about in the same Sermon on the Mount where Satan lives and plays. We are either in the new covenant or the old, we cannot have both no matter how smart we thinking we are in bible teachings.

James 3:11 Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? 3:12 Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water.
3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you?

James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law, and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all. 2:11 For he who said, "Do not commit adultery,"{Exodus 20:14; Deuteronomy 5:18} also said, "Do not commit murder."{Exodus 10:13; Deuteronomy 5:17} Now if you do not commit adultery, but murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 2:12 So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom. 2:13 For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Matt.5:37 But let your 'Yes' be 'Yes' and your 'No' be 'No.' Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.

Either Christ die completing the law, or he did not. It is only a very selfish person that teaches two laws to look good in their own flesh and punish the flesh of others by a law they can't stand in but saving themselves in a law of freedom.

Judging Righteously

To judge righteously we must first be in God's righteousness would you not agree? If we are found in our own righteousness than we are judging from self-righteousness.

1Cor.1:29 that no flesh should boast before God.
1:30 But of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption:

Philippians 3:9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, that which is of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

What and who is God's righteousness, is it any longer the old law, the old covenant that completed it job in judging us too death in the flesh with no way out of death? No! Christ is God's righteousness, are we in Christ? If we are in God's glory, that is, without sin, Christ Jesus, we are the life of Christ having the freedom from judgment of our flesh, because it has been judged and proven wanting, and put away in death.

Romans 10:4 For Christ is the fulfillment{or, completion, or end} of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

We no longer measure out death, God's wrath to each other we measure out life, God's righteousness, without the judgment of the flesh, which is Christ life to each others, just as we want measured out to us in freedom of judgment. We do not render evil for good Christ gave us freely by God's undeserved kindness. How does someone who is righteous measure out evil to others exempting themselves from the law? That is the wicked and evil slave that beats his brothers and sister in their flesh dead in Christ.

1 John 2:11 But he who hates his brother is in the darkness, and walks in the darkness, and doesn't know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

2Cor.3:7 But if the service of death, written engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the children of Israel could not look steadfastly on the face of Moses for the glory of his face; which was passing away:
3:8 won't service of the Spirit be with much more glory?
3:9 For if the service of condemnation has glory, the service of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.
3:10 For most certainly that which has been made glorious has not been made glorious in this respect, by reason of the glory that surpasses.
3:11 For if that which passes away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory. 3:12 Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech, 3:13 and not as Moses, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Israel wouldn't look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away. 3:14 But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains, because in Christ it passes away. 3:15 But to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 3:16 But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

They are not judging righteously, because they can't be righteous in judging sin of the flesh Christ put away freely and gave us freely by no works law we could do but by faith.

The starting point is the proof of what the law did, and the solution found in Christ, its not going back to what Christ put away and judging all over again. It true we all sin, we all fall short of God's glory, but that does not mean we can use the law of the old covenant and now judge others and change what no human could ever change.

Do we reprove others when they use the power of the old law to claim they are in God's righteousness, or they can make others righteous by? That is how we reprove by giving them truth and answer to stay in Christ were God's righteousness is for us. That's how we encourage exhort it each other and even judge each other to make sure we are in the law of freedom not using the law of death on each others.

Galatians 2:16 yet knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, even we believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the law, because no flesh will be justified by the works of the law.

Galatians 2:18 For if I build up again those things which I destroyed, I prove myself a law-breaker.

Galatians 2:19 For I, through the law, died to the law, that I might live to God.

Galatians 2:21 I don't make void the grace of God. For if righteousness is through the law, then Christ died for nothing!"

Galatians 3:2 I just want to learn this from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?

Yes, it true we do judge, we do exhort, we even rebuke those putting faith in their flesh as saving themselves and others. But we do not measure out the wrath of God under the old law, or its judgment when we are in the new law of love. We do not teach its power is still over God's anointed put to death in Christ, were we know him so in flesh no more, or our brothers. We measure out the perfect law of freedom and reprove those measuring out the laws of the flesh declaring they can be righteous in the flesh by works of law found in the bible and/or their religion.

That is what a faithful Stewart does with the life of Christ entrusted to the them as a gift of God's Holy Spirit.

1Cor.4:1 So let a man think of us as Christ's servants, and stewards of God's mysteries.
4:2 Here, moreover, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful.
4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment. Yes, I don't judge my own self.
4:4 For I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not justified by this, but he who judges me is the Lord.
4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each man will get his praise from God.
4:6 Now these things, brothers, I have in a figure transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that in us you might learn not to think beyond the things which are written, that none of you be puffed up against one another.
