Jesus also did not intend his words to be used to stop others from admonishing others when they are committing sinful behavior [Matt. Then what did Jesus actually say? In both Matthew and Luke, the statements that follow the prohibition on judging indicate that it is an elaboration of the Golden Rule—the idea that we should treat others the way that we, ourselves, want to be treated. There will be a Last Judgment at the end of the world, as well as a particular judgment at the end of our earthly lives. If we are in our right minds, we want a judgment done with mercy, compassion, and forgiveness.
Leaving the ultimate judgment of others to God instead of simply concluding that someone is or should be damned. But the person who has in his heart the treasure of evil does exactly the opposite: he hates his friends, speaks evil of him who loves him and does all the other things condemned by the Lord" In Lucae Evangelium Expositio , II, 6. In verse 46, Jesus asks us to act in a way consistent with being Christians and not to make any separation between the Faith we profess and the way we live: "What matters is not whether or not we wear a religious habit; it is whether we try to practice the virtues and surrender our will to God and order our lives as His Majesty ordains, and not want to do our will but His" St.
Life messages: 1 We need to avoid hypocrisy: Let us acknowledge the hypocrisy we all live every day. It is the word Jesus used.

It is even worse when someone else falls into sin. This is the truth of Luke As a disciple of Jesus Christ, I must be honest with myself. If I have trouble seeing my sin, and my failures, I have to go to Jesus and ask Him to point them out to me through prayer and through His Word. And He will. But I am sure to come out with better vision, and better eyesight, because I looked to myself first. Antony Kadavil.

Sir ; Ps ; ; I Cor ; Lk Central theme : Jesus draws our attention to practical points of Christian living and challenges us to use our words as he used his in his preaching and healing ministry -- to heal, to restore, and to bring back life, joy and hope.
Topics Gospel commentary. More upcoming events:. At variance with many of his fellow-critics and historians of Postmodernism, Thiher does not limit his literary frame of reference to the American scene, nor to one particular strain in contemporary narrative fiction.
He casts his net very wide indeed, and takes in writers from countries and continents as diverse as Austria, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, the U. He is able to do so because he does not search for a unifying element among all the works he discusses in the realms of technique or theme. Rather, he looks for it on the level of how these works relate to "reality". Or, to put it differently, he sees these works as expressing a basically similar attitude as regards the relationship of fact to fiction, words to world. Essentially, Postmodernism favors the word over the world, fiction over fact.
How I Learned to Love God's Word: Some Graveside Reflections
This Postmodern preference he takes to be in accordance with the theories of four modern theoreticians of language : Wittgenstein, Heidegger, de Saussure, and Derrida. He sees a similar analogy between Wittgenstein's later works — the Philosophical Investigations, the Brown and Blue Books, and On Certainty — and Postmodern fiction in that both come to see the world not as mirrored by language, but as in itself constituted by language : "Language and the system of reference it presupposes are the preconditions for all our knowing and doing", p.
The notion that the world exists as language opens up the possibility of what Thiher calls the "schizo-text", where "words and things go their separate ways", p. In these texts, which Thiher considers to form a typical Postmodern category,.
ROSE PETALS, THE AUTHOR
Whereas the first chapter of Thiher's study deals with the theories of Wittgenstein, his second chapter concentrates on Heidegger. He sees Heidegger's development as parallelling Wittgenstein's. With Heidegger too, the early work — Sein und Zeit — postulates language, if "authentically" used, as uncovering the truth, as revealing things as they are.
In his later work language is itself an autonomous entity, not a category or a function of any individual being. Similarly to what he sees the later Wittgenstein and the later Heidegger doing, Thiher — in his third chapter — sees de Saussure as rejecting all ideas of languages or representational with his first "law" about the arbitrariness of the sign.
De Saussure, according to Thiher, denies any "necessary relationships between the so-called continuum of experience and those conceptual fields that organise what we take to be reality" p. Summarizing, we can deduce that Thiher sees Wittgenstein, Heidegger, de Saussure, and Derrida as doing away, in their theories, with what Lyotard, in his La condition postmoderne , called "metanarratives" : all theologically or Ideologically underwritten systems of interpretation centered on extra-linguistic realities.
Meaning, the "world" or "reality", then emerge as solely the result of intertextual relationships.
