Why We Don't Judge the Poor, Homeless, Addict or Loser . . .

And yet it often happens that some who have been hardened, habitual sinners arrive at perfection of this work sooner than those who have never sinned grievously. God is truly wonderful in lavishing His grace on anyone He chooses; the world stands bewildered before love like this . . .

Some who are now despised and held in contempt (and who are even perhaps inveterate sinners) shall on that day reign in splendor with His saints. And perhaps some of those who have never sinned grievously and who to all appearances are pious people, venerated as “gods” by other men, shall find themselves in misery among the damned.

My point is that in this life no man may judge another as good or evil simply on the evidence of his deeds. The deeds themselves are another matter. These we may judge as good or evil, but not the person.
