believes that all Christians not only have a duty to be responsible
with the money that God gives us; but, that as Christians
we owe 10% of our time to the Lord as well. God did not call
us all to be evangelists, but He did command us to share our
faith. It is not our responsibility to "win" anyone

share Jesus and when fail to do so we have committed, "THE
SIN OF SILENCE".
