"One must not trust one’s feelings, since because of his limitlessness a man cannot know everything, and therefore his judgment is also relatively limited. Even if you see with your own eyes that someone sins, do not judge, for the eyes also may be deceived. One must in every way flee from judging and pray in secret for those who have sinned. This form of love is pleasing to God. Judging is bound up with impudence and is incompatible with true repentance.” - St. John Climacus.
