For the one who answers only to the will of God, written in Scripture, the words people speak and the judgments they make are immaterial. More than that, in Matthew, the one who hears the commandment with a pure heart carries it out like a Roman soldier, willing to say—or not say—or do whatever it takes to deliver the mission. God forbid, your self-righteous, enlightened, ethical and moral judgment of his means interfere with an end willed by God himself.
Like the man said:
“Judge not, that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and by your standard of measure, it shall be measured to you again.” Matthew 7:1-2
Richard and Fr. Marc discuss Matthew 27:11-14.
