1st Corinthians 3:5-9, “Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.”
Every man is reached by some man. Somebody somehow had to hear the Gospel in some way to get saved. That's the great thing anybody could ever do their entire life, to have somebody believe the Gospel because we shared it with them. I often receive emails from people who tell me that they got saved through my ministry. I cannot even out in words the great joy that floods my soul when I hear such precious testimonies. That is why I do what I do, tirelessly without monetary recompense, because I want to see people get saved. Romans 10:1, “Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.”
Neither you or I have ever saved anybody. We might sow, or water the seed sown by another, or we may have the privilege of reaping that soul to Christ. We are laboring together with the Lord. The Bible says he that planteth and he that waters ARE ONE. Whatever our labor was, we are co-laborers with God. The Lord will reward us each according to our own LABOR, not for the results. God alone gives the increase! 1st Corinthians 3:7-8b, “So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one...” Wow! The Bible says the seed sower and the seed reaper ARE ONE. So if you give someone a Gospel tract, and that seed of truth begins to work in their heart, and then years later I come along and win them to Christ, the Bible teaches that you and I BOTH had a part in that lost sinner's conversion. Neither you nor I can claim credit for that person getting saved, because God saved them, not us.
Lordship Salvation Is An Enemy Of Soulwinning
The Apostle Paul is emphasizing these truths to discourage cliques in the local church. I know the pain of not being accepted by a church clique. Sadly, Bob Jones University is very cliquish. They are very cultish. If you aren't accepted by the inner core of their clique, you're ostracized and left out. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is one such clique. Pastor Marty Herron is an arrogant snob, who corrupted HBC when he was their shameful pastor between 1999 and 2018.
When I attended Harvest for a year in 2014, I was accepted at first. But as soon as I loved them enough to befriend them with THE TRUTH, I was rejected and ostracized by the group. That is how religious cults operate. Since 2014 I have been shunned in the Guam community by everyone who attends Harvest Baptist Church. Just last week I was walking at Asan Beach and saw the church's Harvest House van, and some foster children with Harvest staff members. It was like I wasn't a human being as I passed by and befriended them. They refused to wave. They hate me. Because of Pastor Marty Herron and Pastor Gary Walton's wickedness, arrogant snobs who despise me, they have turned the entire church against me, so that I cannot even walk in public without being stared at, shunned and mistreated by their staff and members. That is of the Devil. That is a religious cult. That is not God's love.
Do you know what is the underlying core issue? Harvest Baptist Church is preaching another gospel. They preach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. They promote the Devil's corruptible seed in the modern perverse Bible revisions. They preach a misunderstood repentance that falsely requires people to try to stop sinning to be saved. Harvest Baptist Church is a Satanic cult, following their Satanic headquarters at Bob Jones University...

I watched a very interesting 12 hour documentary by historian film producer, Ken Burns, on 'The American Civil War.' It is heartbreaking history! I just heard a quote in the film by President Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) that caught my attention...
“In great contests [battles], each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God—both may be, but one must be, wrong—God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time!” —President Abraham Lincoln
Romans 5:6-9, “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”
“The true Gospel always points you to Christ; a false gospel always points to you.” —Pastor Dennis Rokser
The greatest thing you'll ever do is to lead someone to Christ with the Gospel. I have had the blessed privilege to lead thousands of people to Jesus Christ through my humble online ministry. God saved them all, I just gave them the truth of the Gospel. Jesus said in John 15:5 that without Him we cannot do anything. Jesus is the vine, we are the branches. If we abide in Christ, then we will bear much fruit (Luke 8:15). That is our duty as believers, to be ambassadors of Christ to the world, reconciling sinners to God with the Gospel. 2nd Corinthians 5:20, “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.”
I have made an entire website dedicated to this great effort at SOULWINNING.INFO, which has many helpful resources for leading people to Christ. There is no specific way to share the Gospel, just be natural and talk normally to people. Usually they will bring up the subject. I made my own Gospel tract a couple years ago, which I pass out all the time of Guam. I like to put $20 inside, fold it up, and toss it out the window as I drive by to hurting people begging for money. Here's my .PDF Gospel tract if you'd like to print and share it with others also.
Many Pastors Have Destroyed Soulwinning Churches
I am now listening to a needful sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles called: “Many Pastors Have Destroyed My Vineyard.” Dr. Hyles said in this helpful sermon, “You never outgrow God's Great Commission.” Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” We are commanded to take the Gospel UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD.
There is nothing more important than soulwinning. It is tragic that so many churches have fallen into the trap of WORSHIP. You cannot show me one verse in the King James Bible that says we go to church to worship God. You cannot! Pastors have destroyed our churches, turning them into fun centers and places of entertainment. The job of the New Testament church is to help sinners! These hypocritical churches who ban sinners, and drive out truth-tellers like me, are of the Devil. How can you help sinners if you kick them out of church? I'm not talking about defiant open sin in the church (1st Corinthians 5:1-5).
The ungodly Harvest Baptist Church of Guam expelled a man for divorcing his wife. How can that man be helped now? They destroyed his life! Pastor Marty Herron kicked me out for telling THE TRUTH that Lordship Salvation is not the free grace Gospel. That devil has blood on his hands, and I'm going to be there when God makes him rue the day he hurt me for telling THE TRUTH!!! Kindly said, Pastor Herron is a theological liar, a false teacher and a religious hypocrite. He can sin, but no one else can. When a man on staff divorced his wife, Pastor Herron axed him, excommunicating him as a church member. But when Marty Herron bids Godspeed to evildoers Steve Pettit and John MacArthur, and spreads the Devil's corruptible seed of the modern perversions, and refuses to allow me to attend church, that's okay? I haven't had a church family since 2014 because of Marty Herron. He couldn't care less. I fully agree with Pastor Jack Hyles...
“I'm 62 years old, everybody's fighting any way, I think I'll just going go out fighting! I'm no longer going to keep my mouth shut.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the sermon: 'Many Pastor's Have Destroyed My Vineyard'
The churches are all about reaching people for God. Today's pastors have no compassion, letting the world go to Hell. They're a bunch of yuppie-type academics, who have never built churches and couldn't care less about drunkards, the poor and hurting sinners like me who need love and a church family.
“I preached a week down there many years ago, every night for a week—Billy Sunday Tabernacle. You know why they're going to tear it down? 'Cause they ain't got enough religion to fill it up. That great tabernacle where they used to have great Bible conferences, where Billy Sunday and others used to preach, it's about to go down now. You know why? Because we've got a bunch of deeper-life people gathering around the Word, when we ought to gather around the hungry. I'm not against the Bible, I love the Bible, but the Bible is not just a Book for you to feast on and study, the Bible is a Book to use, to feed, to convict and to convert.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the sermon: 'Many Pastor's Have Destroyed My Vineyard'
