Soul Winning - PREFACE

Soul Winning - PREFACE

Soul winning is serious business.  It is a matter of life and death, heaven and hell.  What is more important than eternal salvation?  Jesus put it this way, saying, "For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?  Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?"  Matthew 16:26.

Many years ago an American company was interested in doing business in China.  They needed someone who could speak both English and Chinese to represent them.  A bilingual missionary was approached and offered a large salary to work for the new company.  He declined.  He was offered more money.  He declined again.  Finally, he was asked, "Isn't that enough money?"  The missionary replied, "The money is fine.  There just isn't enough job."  What task is greater and more rewarding than leading others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ?

Consider the following Scriptures.  "The Lord is...not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance."  2 Peter 3:9.  "God our Savior...desires all men to be saved."  1 Timothy 2:3, 4.  The soul winner is on a rescue mission.  Jude describes it as "pulling them (the ungodly) out of the fire."  See Jude 23.  The Captain of our salvation has issued our marching orders, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."  Mark 16:15.  This is called "the Great Commission."  Is it any wonder?

1) For those who find drop-down, slide-out menus convenient, just hover over the category (menu link on the top bar) and sub-category (menu link in the drop down list).  If there is an arrow to the right of the item, the articles in that category will slide out.  (If there is no arrow, just click on the item.)  Click on any article to read it.  If you have a "wheel mouse," you should be able to roll it toward you to see more of the drop-down menu.

2) If you are unable to see all the drop-down or slide-out items (or just prefer a different way of navigating), click on the category (menu link on the top bar), then on any sub-category in the list that appears.  You will see a list of articles to choose from OR use our Site Map.

3) Most studies are part of a series (category or sub-category).  Each article within the category has a link to the next article so you can progress easily to the next study.

4) At the top of the page, you will also notice "Breadcrumbs" that show which category and sub-category you are in.  You may click on those links to return to the "parent" category or sub-category list.

5) ANSWERS to Review Questions and Quizzes are found in links at the end of the Review Questions or Quiz.  They may also be accessed by clicking on the category (which will show a list of all articles in the category).  The link at the end of the article will cause a pop up window to appear so you may easily refer to other pages on the site; the link in the Category list will open a normal page.
