Rescue the perishing

I might be ruffling some feathers with this post, but I have to say it. We sometimes mis-use the scripture about judge not lest ye be judged. No, we can’t sit in judgement on others–that is Jesus’ job–BUT if someone is living in a way that is detrimental to him or to others and is in opposition to God’s instruction, then it is our responsibility to gently guide them in a better direction. That isn’t judging–it’s rescuing. We as Christians need to learn to rescue the perishing, or one day we will stand before God and hear Him ask, “Why didn’t you try to save My lost?”
