It boils down to the two commandments: love God, and love one another as Christ loved us: even his reproofs came out of his love for us, not anger, certainly none of hate. His righteousness came only from love, not from any kind of thinking that one might construe oneself better than anyone else, but instead in the spirit of what one needs to do to do the other good. We are only better than anyone else if we set ourselves lower than them. And if we are to be of his ilk, we are to give people the benefit of the doubt, not having the all of knowledge as he did as to what a person’s motives are. The first instinct should always be to be to forgive, not to judge. Whatever is required of us to love, nothing else. He told us to do nothing else.
