According the Matthew 7:3, we are not to "judge" our fellow man. And according the Moroni 7:15 we are commanded to judge between right and wrong. This creates a problem for some who don't read carefully, or who jump to unwarranted conclusions about a writers intent.

We are not to judge people. But we are supposed to judge ideas, principles, philosophies and behaviors. Judging the good from the evil is one of the most important reasons we are in mortality.

Yet almost every true idea, principle, philosophy or behavior indicts someone. They take it personal. They falsely assume that you are targeting them or a loved one when all you are trying to do is teach the correct principle. I wish others could do as well as I do in making the distinction between teaching correct principle and finger pointing. I guess it just takes more intelligence than most people possess.
