The knowledge of good and evil

The knowledge of good and evil

The apple bitten
Now starts mankind’s upheaval
 The knowing of good and evil
The judging right from wrong

Separating weak from strong
Who are we to measure,
Refuse verses treasure
Valued verses worthless
Deserving of freedom or to be oppressed.

To be cast aside or thrown a life vest
Smaller or bigger transgress

This knowledge of good and evil

To see with eyes before the fall
To see with eyes that know it all
To look and not judge
To extend grace and not begrudge

Oh to love like Christ,
All worth the sacrifice.
The purpose to call out sin
Only so we can begin again
Not to set the scales against
But to allow grace to be dispensed

Lord forgive us our violations
Comparing of others and self-categorizations

Losing sight of God’s declarations
Utilizing human evaluations
 Limiting Jesus’s blood rectification

Holy Spirit teach us your interpretations
How to have true discernment without discrimination.

James 4:12 (ESV) There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?

James 4:11-12 (ESV) Do not speak evil against one another, brothers.[a] The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 

2 Corinthians 5:10  (ESV) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
