We are called to lead people to God (not away from Him)

Jeremiah 23 The Lord declares:

I will send disaster upon the leaders of my people—the shepherds of my sheep—for they have destroyed and scattered the very ones they were to care for.  Instead of leading my flock to safety, you have deserted them and driven them to destruction. And now I will pour out judgment upon you for the evil you have done to them. And I will gather together the remnant of my flock from wherever I have sent them and bring them back into their own fold, and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will appoint responsible shepherds to care for them, and they shall not need to be afraid again; all of them shall be accounted for continually.

The time is coming, says the Lord, when I will place a righteous Branch upon King David’s throne. He shall be a King who shall rule with wisdom and justice and cause righteousness to prevail everywhere throughout the earth.And this is his name: The Lord Our Righteousness. At that time Judah will be saved and Israel will live in peace.

In that day people will no longer say when taking an oath, “As the Lord lives who rescued the people of Israel from the land of Egypt,”  but they will say, “As the Lord lives who brought the Jews back to their own land of Israel from the countries to which he had exiled them.”
