Who Are The 2 Sets Of People?
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you [and He commanded us to preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). So Christians ought to teach and tell other baby Christians to observe the command to go soul winning/witnessing.
Acts 1:8 "ye shall be witnesses unto me" doesn't sound like He's asking for our input, it's a command!

2) The saved (Exe 3:18-21): Some say let's win them over with our lifestyle because it's not kind to tell people their going to hell without Christ. Then Jesus was the most unkind person there was. Nonsense! It is NOT unkind to tell people they will go to hell without a saving faith in Christ it is unkind not to tell them and keep it a secret.
Commentary on Jude 1:22-23 by Dr. David H. Sorenson
1:22 Jude also enjoins, And of some have compassion, making a difference. Once again, the primary verb "have compassion" is in the imperative mode. He thus directs his read- ers to be compassionate. It truly will make a difference when even the truth does not seem to penetrate. The main focus of the epistle has been upon contending for the faith and its truth. However, near the conclusion of the epistle, Jude also commands compassion for others. It does make a difference.
1:23 On the other hand, he directs, And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. The focus of these closing verses turns to the practical. Saving others by fear (which is an imperative as well) may refer to winning people to Christ and motivating them to so repent by the fear of impending damnation in hell. However, it maybe that in context of the entire epistle, Jude is directing his readers to seek to recover some who have been infected by the apostasy prevalent even then. The final phrase, "hating even the garment spotted by the flesh," would seem to lend credence thereto. The final phrase frankly refers to cloth- ing being stained by bodily discharge whether menstrual or otherwise. It had become a metaphor for the defilement of sin. Though we are enjoined to reach others, whether by compassion or fear, we are to hate their sin (and apostasy) that may have fouled their lives. Thus, Jude concludes his epistle by directing his readers to reach out to the fallen ones whether referring to their salvation or believers confused by apostasy. He offers two means. One is by compassion. The other is by fear of judgment. Either can be effective. We need to seek the leading of the Holy Spirit as to which approach to use when witnessing to people.
1 Cor 3:14-15 - Will your rewards burn up?
At the judgment seat of Christ, your Saviour will either have a thumbs up in which then He might say as He said in Matt 25:21 "well done thou good and faithful servant...enter thou into the joy of thy lord". Or your Saviour will have a thumbs down in which at that very moment all of the rewards He would have given you are forever forfeited and all of your works will be burned up.
Is it gonna burn or not! The choice is up to you! The Bible 1st, last and always!
Christian are you making a consistent effort to tell people about God's simple plan of salvation?
If you're not, what does that say about your love for God?
Christian, it is not: we ought to serve God, it is WE GET TO SERVE GOD!
Think about it.
