Here's how Jesus ( who NEVER used force) trained his disciples before he left the earth: (Luke 8:1) Shortly afterwards he went journeying from city to city and from village to village, preaching and declaring the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him, (Luke 10:1) After these things the Lord designated SEVENTY OTHERS and sent them forth by twos in advance of him into every city and place to which he himself was going to come. -So Jesus didn't just expect his apostles to preach he expected ALL of his disciples to give a witness to others and teach them the Bible which means a disciple must first learn the Bible himself before he can teach others. Here's how the first century congregation followed in his footsteps: (Acts 5:42) And every day in the temple and from house to house they continued without letup teaching and declaring the good news about the Christ, Jesus. (Acts 20:20) while I did not hold back from telling YOU any of the things that were profitable nor from teaching YOU publicly and from house to house. Here's how it is being done today:

You can't force anyone to believe. Forced conversions are not sincere. Lots of people pretend to be believers to fit in and probably use their fake status as a ploy to get and keep you or others off their back.

With love, patience, and understanding. The bible does not condone calling people idiots, berating them, or saying that they are stupid.

Shake the dust off your feet when they reject you. Jesus did not preach in some cities, due to their unbelief.

Jesus said, "Freely you have received, freely give." He paired the disciples up to go into the highways and byways to urge people to repent, for the Kingdom of God was near. Jesus said that if people in a village jeered at the disciples, they were to shake the dust off their sandals as they left the village. (A symbolic gesture meaning the consequences would be on those people for having rejected the gospel.) Jesus said they were to receive the Holy Spirit who would bring to their remembrance what to say, and empower them to spread the gospel. The Christians were not to stop sharing the gospel even if the authorities threatened them with jail, or worse. They might move on to another locality, but they were not to be intimidated into silence. As well as structured gospel preaching and teaching to the general public, they were to preach Christ in the congregations, and their reverence for God would 'speak' to strangers coming in. Also, as Paul said, devotion to prayer is an integral part of spreading the gospel. See Colossians 4:2-6: "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. "Be wise in the way you act towards outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone." Be ready to speak to those who enquire about our faith. Even without a word, Christian conduct can win people over (as with wives with unbelieving husbands - they are not to argue). It is utterly impossible to 'force' a person to convert to Christ! Even at the point of a sword (which is only what wicked people would do), anyone saying 'Yes, yes! I believe in Christianity now!' is not believing at all. They have NOT been converted. Jesus draws people with cords of love. The role of the Holy Spirit accomplishes the conversion of sinners. That is why we need to be much in prayer with every instance of trying to commend Christ to unbelievers, by word or deed. AiH
