the ungodly are not so...

Psalms1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

How old Testament. Didn't Jesus tell us that we're all sinners, that we shouildn't judge them, that we should show mercy to them? Yet this reading tells us sinners are "chaff" and implies they shouldn't even be allowed in the congregations of godly folks.

This is why I consider Christianity to be mostly a hypocritical religion, as it tries to embrace both Old and New Testament mindsets. And they couldn't be more different.

Christians should focus on their own weaknesses, not those of others. Judge not, lest ye be judged. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
