My intent is embodied in my words and my actions. If I say something with a twisted motive it will be communicated as being twisted even if I get the wording of the statement right. Judgement has two branches: consideration and pronouncement. Pronouncement is embodied in the act. Consideration is not. Punishment follows from conviction, not trial. I know that if I say something with a wrong motive I am corrupted by it, because the fullness of the intent is embodied in my words.
