Chatper-a-Day Romans 2

But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point
your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone,
you condemn yourself
. Rom 2:1 (TM)

The Bible is very clear. We all fall short. As Dylan sang, "ain’t no man righteous, no not one." So why do we feel so comfortable being critical and judgmental of those who fall short of our moral and religious standards? If only we took up Jesus’ mission: "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world". Criticism, condemnation and judgement aren’t vehicles for saving – their the tools of repelling.

Am I working to save the lost – or condemn them?
