T9843C/T9844 Defusing the Courts
Jesus says, "Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matthew 7:1). If we cannot judge one another, then what will become of the black-robed judges sitting in their high seats? Jesus said to swear no oaths, because anything beyond a "yes," or a "no," comes from the devil. Without oath taking, the courts could not exist. Another heartbeat of the courts is taking vengeance, and Jesus said to forgive men their trespasses against us. If we turn the other cheek, there is no court date. The simple teachings of Jesus also end lawsuits. In other words, love defuses the courts. Forgiveness ends the quarrel. It is that simple.
