Those speaking truth portrayed as having lost their mind, those who lie, portrayed as truth tellers who care. This twisted world has lost the capacity to discern right from wrong.
You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.
~ This verse continues the metaphor of a person with a plank in their own eye who criticizes someone for a speck in their own eye.
~ A fault observed in another person by a person who ignores a greater fault of his or her own.
Perhaps there is no hope … or perhaps this is only a weak moment, where faith in goodness waivers.
