Our burden for lost souls

In his essay "Have We No Tears? Have We No Shame? Have We No Grief?," Biblemike writes about the burden Christians should have for lost souls:
Many of us have no memory for the great revivals of the church, because we have never seen what true revival is. We walk calmly with the status quo as our generation marches inexorably toward hell. We sleep peacefully at night because our church is saved and those outside have to face the problem for themselves. It’s not our responsibility after all. Jesus whipped the money changers out of the temple, but first He wept over them. He grieved for their souls. Shame on us. Everlasting Shame on us for we do not weep a single tear for those misguided souls.
Surely Biblemike is overstating the case here . . . isn't he?

Update: John at Blogotional answers that question here.

Mourning the lost -- no he's not overstating Milt! We should burn with desire for the unsaved to be saved and mourn all those that are not. I posted here
