Spurgeon on Stealing Sheep

“…they maintain their churches by converts from other systems. I have even heard them say, ‘Oh, yes, the Methodists and Revivalists are beating the hedges, but we shall catch many of the birds.’ If I harboured such a mean thought I would be ashamed to express it. A system which cannot touch the outside world, but must leave arousing and converting work to others, whom it judges to be unsound, writes its own condemnation.” –Charles Spurgeon, Lectures to My Students: Complete & Unabridged, by Charles Haddon Spurgeon, page 243, Zondervan, 1979.

I cannot help think of this quote and evaluate myself and the whole Reformed Baptist movement in America.
