When people talk about winning souls these days, I feel absolutely
concerned for the so-called souls. It looks to me like a lion on a
breakfast mission, in search for his hunt; he hides behind the grass for
an unwise lamb that would wander away from the herd in search of fresh
grass. This will be an easy catch and good feast for the lion’s plate.
I hear these people talk about winning souls, I feel sorry for the
souls who have no idea of what they are getting into. It sometimes
sounds to me like blood-thirsty people desperate to count the number of
innocent, ignorant people who will give their blood to be sucked. These
souls are classified, as the needy, can undoubtedly be gullible in their
search for solutions and wanting to identify or belong to a community.
These souls are caught when they are most vulnerable maybe they have
lost a loved one, in a bad relationship with their parents or family, in
need of healing or desperate for a change. At this point they will give
anything and do anything without a second thought.
When caught by the wrong hands, they will start running in a wheel.
Initially, the souls will be treated with some measure of care, so they
do not detach. This will be short lived to prepare them to be trained as
unconscious servants. Once the attachment is built, they would start
attending endless meetings till they begin to be unavailable for their
loved ones and disassociate from their families over time.
These souls will eventually give their energy away and with time they
begin to feel tired, unhappy, sick, financially drained and depleted.
Unknown to them, this new community and friends may be superficial. The
souls might observe that sweet and bitter method of sucking their blood
has gradually robbed them of their self worth. They might realize they
have given their energy to somebody else and they are now hanging in the
They are tied up with daily and weekly responsibilities but if you look
closely, their main leader is seating in a place of convenience by
handling brief monthly meetings (not weekly) or occasional gatherings.
When I hear about souls, I have sympathy for those who give their blood
to be sucked. They are simply prey to be used as objects in some
people’s game. Incidentally, some of these souls have become wiser in
seeking the opportunity to reap the reaper in his own game, like the
buffalo who challenges the tiger.
An aggressive soul winner is hungry like a hunter; he goes with all
manner of tools and uses different technique to capture his prey.
An aggressive soul winner is like a fisherman who uses a net. This
method of fishing is solely for material or commercial purposes. On the
other hand a fish can also be caught by using a fishing rod with baits
or lures impaled on the hooks to entice any fish that venture near to
bite off the attractive bait. Unfortunately, if caught by a commercial
fisherman the fish is not going anywhere after all that effort, it must
be eaten. However, if caught by a hobbyist, he will admire the fish and
put it back where it belongs, in its natural habitat. Thank God for
regulatory organizations helping to stop brutal killings of animals
whether on land or sea.
Soul winning alone will not take you to heaven; you win a soul by living
the God life and your personal interest in bringing somebody to the
knowledge of Christ. You have to be in a good frame of mind first, not
under fear or compulsion that if you do not win souls you will go to
hell. There should be no ulterior motives like getting the soul’s money
eventually, you want a position or seeking to be rewarded with treats or
awards. There are people who reach out to others daily not for any
earthly reward or to direct the souls to their own churches, for
benefits or for any selfish reason. These people recommend and make
available other authors, ministers and local assemblies for the interest
of the soul alone.
Every man should learn to take care of himself first. He should learn to
use his initiative and study for himself otherwise he might become
somebody’s big catch or ‘meat’. At that point he would have no one to
