      He who busies himself with the sins of others, or judges his brother on
      suspicion, has not yet even begun to repent or to examine himself so as to
      discover his own sins, which are truly heavier than a great lump of lead; nor
      does he know why a man becomes heavyhearted when he loves vanity and chases
      after falsehood (cf. Ps. 4:2). That is why, like a fool who walks in darkness,
      he no longer attends to his own sins but lets his imagination dwell on the sins
      of others, whether these sins are real or merely the products of his own
      suspicious mind.
