Fire in the Bones [Biblical, Heterodox Christianity]: “Odd” Teachings of Christ: #2

Evangelicals [and Protestants in general] believe the “Judgment” is one that none of us passes, for we have all sinned. The idea is that God must judge each of us against a standard of perfection. We all fail and are therefore destined to Hell but for the forgiveness available through Christ.

Doesn’t Matthew 7:2 more or less completely contradict this idea? We cannot both be judged “as we judge others” and against the impossible standard of God’s perfection.
