It does say in the good book “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).
My question is, how does one go about doing that without coming off like a televangelist?
I realise that one important part of this is actually LIVING like a true Christian (which is loving God and doing whatever He asks because you love Him, in short). And I assume, as a Catholic, that to be a God-approved Christian, you’re supposed to do all of the things the Church and God tell you to. And in case you didn’t notice, there’s a massive list of things - many of which people are not willing to do (such as abstaining from sex, keeping swearing to a minimum, going to Church every Sunday, and so on).
So my question is, how does one effectively evangelise without coming off as one of these embarrassing shove-it-in-your-face types we hear about on the news?
Or possibly, how does one talk about God without stumbling over all of those things people seem so resistant to (like not using contraceptives, or abstaining from alcohol, etc)? What is completely necessary to make a person a convert?
How do you tell people about God without getting into an arguement???
