They are judgments you will need to be willing to hand in excess of for correction (forgiveness). Just the Moi judges and attacks. You aren't your Moi.
Absolutely all associations are Exclusive till you decide on to generate them Holy. You can not see Many others as your brother if you are involved in judgment and projection.
