  1. According to the Mormons, that was effectively what the Biblical verse originally read, but got corrupted over time.

    JSV Matt 7:2 “Judge not unrighteously, that ye be not judged: but judge righteous judgment. ”

    vs

    KJV Matt 7:1 “Judge not, that ye be not judged.”

    • I do want to point out that even more traditional strains of Christianity emphasize that the point of this is less “Do not judge others” and more “Make sure the standard you’re judging others by is the correct one” and “Make sure you live up to the standards you judge others by” (i.e. Don’t be a hypocrite), especially as the next verse goes on to say:

      “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”
