There are three ways of trying to win the young.

The Galatians are severely censured for giving heed to false doctrines, and are called to pronounce even an apostle anathema, if he preached another gospel.
You have nothing to do but to save souls.
Therefore spend and be spent in this work. And go not only to those that need you, but to those that need you most.
