Question: If you are not being a soul winner, you could lose out with God. I believe anyone who is being a light is just that, whether they are preaching in the streets or just being a friend to someone who needs Jesus or praying for the lost. Here is the scripture that I am basing my opinion on, just let me know if you believe that soul winning is a requirement from God. 'Love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, soul, and strenth and second, love your neighbor as yourself. No greater commandment than these. If you had a friend who was dying due to a desease and the doctors told you your friend is gonna die because they have no cure, and it so happened that you know the cure but did not tell them, then how can you love that person like yourself? My friends, we know the cure to the desease of sin. Its name is JESUS CHRIST and if we are not out telling people about Him, then we are falling way short of the SECOND MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT!

Answer: We agree that Jesus expects every believer to do His part in spreading the gospel and reaching the lost. As John wrote, 'But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?' (1 John 3:17). What could be a greater good than the gospel of Jesus Christ!
