How Is This Worse Than That ?

Common Sense Commentary: There are far more scriptural references to the sins of the lips and tongue than there are of all the other sins put together. think about that for a moment. Verify it for yourself ... if you doubt it. Who received the harshest rebuke of Jesus ...thieves, harlots, cursers, alcoholics or self-righteous religious hypocrites?

How is it worse for a non-Christian man to give his lips and lungs to tobacco... than for a Christian to give their lips and lungs to gossiping and condemnation of that lost man? What do you expect an unsaved person to do anyway ... act like a Christian?  "Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." Matt.15:11.

How is it worse for a Christian who does not tithe or attend every service at their church ... than for a Christian, who does both, to critically gossip about their fellow church members who do neither?  "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven..." Luke 6:37. 

How is it worse for a young girl to wear shorts in public than it is for a Christian woman, who is 180 pounds overweight, wearing tent sized clothes, to critically gossip about that young girl?  "The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women ...." Titus 

How is it worse for me to ask such questions than it is for you to judge me critically for asking?
I really want to know. RB
