“Never, never bring the gospel by proselytizing,” Pope Fracis said. “If someone says they are a disciple of Jesus and comes to you with proselytism, they are not a disciple of Jesus.”

This weekend, Pope Francis spoke to Catholic high school students about how to reach nonbelievers, stressing that Christians should live their faith out loud rather than trying to try to coerce people to convert.

What the Bible say:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. – Matthew 28:19-20
