Are you referring to what Jesus said?

Luke 6
[40] The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
[41] And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
[42] Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.

That's what Jesus said.

Matthew 7
[6] Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine [pigs], lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Here you go again with your hate speech misinterpreting something which is eastern symbolism and foolishly calling those who are not like you, dogs. You love the bible(your interpretation of it) but hate the one it testifies of.

Yet, you do what you feel is best.

Also, Jesus doesn't imply we are never to judge when he commands to judge correctly and commends when done correctly:
John 7:24
Luke 7:41-43

It's a distinction or contrast, in other words knowing something because of the differences.

Do you not know right from wrong? Can you not tell the difference?

We are to judge right from wrong for our OWN actions and attitudes, NOT others'. All the Christian would-be judges who desire to judge other people are in for a big, unpleasant surprise, IMO.

Jesus being a Jew, the dogs were the Gentiles...

That is what I keep saying, in symbolism, every mention of dog equates to Gentiles and more specifically, lawless Gentiles, and thus, Gentiles. Speaking of swine is speaking of lawlessness, if you throw a pearl of wisdom to a swine, it is a lawless Gentile. That is the symbolism, but how many lawless Gentiles do we see speaking of casting their pearls to swine or of dogs?

Ironic.

Ironic.
However not every mention equates to Gentiles. Isaiah 56:10-11
Israel’s watchmen are blind,
they all lack knowledge;
they are all mute dogs,
they cannot bark;
they lie around and dream,
they love to sleep.


They are dogs with mighty appetites; they never have enough.
They are shepherds who lack understanding; they all turn to their own way,
they seek their own gain.

Just a viewpoint. I'm saved now and forevermore. Though trials and tribulations will continue this side of creation, my salvation is secure. Born twice, die once. My eternal address is in stone. Eternity is forever. Not sure how else to describe it.
