It's a good thing that the Apostles didn't have your opinion towards sharing the Gospel, or we would all be in trouble. There are numerous places in
the NT where we as followers of Christ are commissioned to spread the Gospel...
For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone
who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they
hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of
those who bring good news!”
16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 Consequently, faith comes from
hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
Then there is this very clear commandment from Jesus Christ Himself, from Mark 16:15-16...
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but
whoever does not believe will be condemned."
It's very ironic and sad, as well as VERY hypocritical and self righteous, that you consider your fellow man to be swine, not worthy of hearing the
Gospel. God considers YOU
, as well as everyone else, to be unworthy of His grace and mercy, and that YOU
, as well as everyone else,
deserves eternal torment and condemnation in Hell. If God were only a just God, we would all already be there. Thankfully He is not only just, He is
merciful, which is why we are not in Hell already. Because of His mercy, the unsaved wake up everyday with a new opportunity to humble themselves and
believe on The LORD Jesus Christ as their Savior, and those who already believe wake up every morning with a new opportunity to reach the lost with
the message of the Gospel. When we share the Gospel, we are demonstrating the love of God for us to others. Knowing the truth of the Gospel, and NOT
sharing it, is no different than seeing someone about to be run over by a car and NOT saying anything. You have the answer to defeating sin and
death, and yet you refuse to share that answer with anyone. You are the one who has to live with that, and unfortunately, you are the one who has to
die with that, unless you repent.
