Go and sin no more.

Again I see a Bible scholar using John 8 in a discussion about Christians and throwing stones at sinners. Jesus showed great compassion to sinners. He would sit and eat with tax collector, drunks, adulterers and sexual deviants. His goal was to get the sinners to STOP SINNING and for them to ask God for forgiveness. So please if your going to quote Jesus please remember. "Go and sin no more"

3. No

he just very non-judgementally and impartially threw down the money changers tables. Just because it is the right thing to do.

6. IIRC

He was not that judgemental, telling us what to do or not to do. He just very clearly and without mincing told that if you judge, you'll get judged. What goes around, comes around.

8. I just remembered how it continues

"For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. 3"Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye?…"

And that was way before Jung made "projection" a fad word, and the partisan blame gamers - maybe you have seen some somewhere, once or twice in a lifetime? - found a new game:

Alice: Thou project too much
Bob: Yeah, but thy eye projects a beam.
etc.

OK, I'll try not to judge myself for this projection... too harshly.

2. I suppose it depends on one's definition of "sin", does it not?

Here's a pretty good one, IMHO.

Sin lies only in hurting others unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense.

4. It is a mistake

to hurt others unnecessarily. And that's what hamartia means, mistake, error, lapse of conscience.
