Same Chapter, Different Text

Do not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves. 
Matthew 7:1

Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves. You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or fig from thistles?
Matthew 7:15-16

How do you implement verses 15 and 16 without running into problems with verse one?

I think the difference is humility in approaching other believers when we think they are "wrong". We shouldn't be judging believers we don't have a personal relationship with either, in my opinion, unless we are church leadership, and have to make a very hard decision. Also we can warn other believers about people we think are false teachers or "blind guides" if we think it is wise to do so. In today's climate, I think it would just add to the general confusion about Christians.
