Divine love is explained by Jesus. Amorism clarifies this also for philosophers, atheists and others
I suggest that Matthew 7:1, Luke 6:37 and Romans 2:1 are translated better and explained better

My translation and explanation makes it more obvious that it may be okay for anyone to judge; at least for righteous judgments. My explanation explains why Jesus (in Matthew 7:1) says more than Do not judge. You can see this in the quotations above. My explanation corresponds well with the original Greek and with common sense and with other passages in the Bible, Jesus Christ and Amorism (the dogma) and the book Amorism. With my translation and additional explanation Matthew 7:1 does not contradict Matthew 7:2 – 6, 19:28 (se quotation below), Luke 22:30, John 16 and 1 Corinthians 6 and the Amoristic creed. But the common wrong translation creates contradictions. I and Amorism claim that judgement does not have to omit benevolence (love). Important with my translation above is to promote righteous judgements, not to reject all judgements. My translation better reveals that: 1. Jesus warns of judgements to hide judges (judging persons) own flaws; 2. Jesus criticises hypocrisy; 3. Jesus does not criticise all judgements. But he criticises unrighteous judgements and the abuse of judgements and unnecessary judgments. Matthew 5 inspires us to judge or prioritise taking care of what's most important, and our own flaws if they are more acute. Matthew 5 also says that we should judge or take care of others' flaws. Observe, Matthew 5 does not say that we should not take care of or judge others' flaws. Matthew 5 thereby corresponds with my addition to and explanation of Matthew 7:1. Quotation of Matthew 5: You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. Matthew 19:28 – 29: Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. The underlined in the sentences in Matthew 7:5 and 19:28 – 29 (here above) Jesus clearly tells us to judge. Compare how this contradicts Matthew 7:1 if my addition and explanation is not used. In other words: my additions and explanations are necessary to understand Jesus in this aspect.
