So the other day I was talking to a gentleman who was quite firm on the idea that only Born Again Christians can avoid the fire of Hell, and that all people must be saved in this manner. It seemed a good question to ask him how many souls he had actually saved using this method. He responded that it was God who saved and the truth was the truth whether he actually led anyone to Jesus or not.

I told him that he had just told me that the only way to save fish in the ocean was to go fishing for them, but that he personally did not own a fishing poll, tackle or boat. It appeared to me I told him that he was a hypocrite of the highest order, if he believed in an eternal hell but did nothing to save souls from it.

This is what I am afraid passes for belief with many people who hold this view of salvation, when you ask them hows the fishing they tell you the ocean makes them sick.
