Why we have no right to judge the others

Many give their opinion and judge the various sinners. They say: "I would not have done something in its place." But each person is unique, and hence the intensity of feelings and motivations. So I can't know what felt someone else when he did something that I judge to be bad. And, because I can't know what he felt, I can't judge objectively. Only someone who knows the full context of the facts can judge. And that person is only God who knows man's thoughts and feelings. And God 's judgement is not passionate, like ours, is the only truly objective judgement.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. "(Gospel of John 3, 16-17). Now is the time when God is trying to save people. After each one's death, the particular judgement, each respond of his actions. But we humans judge ahead of time (anyone can repent by the end of life) and subjective, because we do not know deep those we judge.

Now, during Lent let's take the decision to no longer judge our brothers, for not earn condemnation, "for with what measure you measure with the same measure you will." (Gospel of Luke, 6.38). Holy Fathers said we should see our own sins, and so we find the true path to God and rest.

Update: I'm not talking about doctrinal issues. We must defend the true faith even at the cost of living.

Holy Fathers said, "hate the sin but love the sinner."

We are hating heresy, for "father of lies is the devil", but we love those who drpooed in it and pray for their enlightenment.
