I disagree with the writer. Jesus really meant that we are not to judge one another. His message, and that in the epistles, is for freedom and civil liberties. Think about Paul stating, "Everything is permissible for me, but not everything is helpful..." That is a very radical stance by a former legalist. Fundamentalism, the most public and vocal form of Christianity, is highly legalistic and also rather muscular in its plans to impose its version of legalism on all of us. Does there need to be boundaries? Oh, of course, the government needs to have laws and rules to prevent abuse and problems. How do such laws derive? Not from the Old Testament, or someone's weird view of the New Testament, or from the Koran or the Book of Mormon. They ought to be derived from the consent of the governed, as our Constitution wisely ordained, all powers not granted to governement shall be reserved to the people. So, there is a role for judgment, but that is the role of government, not individuals. This guy is way off base, God help him.
