It is obvious that the poster of this quoted bit picks two words out of many in the Bible, takes those two words out of context and then passes judgment that another poster needs to "get......................real" based on those two words.
The question then is what such a poster does with Bible instruction to "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."
Which Bible instruction? -- "Judge not," or "judge righteous judgment"?
When those two words, "judge not" are kept within their context, Matthew 7 does not contradict John 7. But when those two words are taken out of their context in Matthew 7, John 7 contradicts the created pretext that results from doing so. And carried to a logical conclusion such a created pretext would prohibit preaching of the gospel because the gospel condemns those who fail to trust the sacrifice of Jesus for salvation -- one using such a created pretext would prohibit anyone to judge Hinduism(for just one example) as false due to its teaching of thousands of gods in complete opposition to Biblical Christianity -- so the moment a Christian pointed out that contradiction of Hinduism, he/she would (of course) be "judging" Hinduism in contrast to Scripture -- indeed, "judge not" (with that created pretext) if you WANT to "get............unreal."
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
