It seems just assumed that every Christian is supposed to go out and gain converts. Because I see so many do it so poorly, I thought it would be good to learn what scripture motivates the evangelical here on HP. I use the term "evangelical" in the loose sense not the name of a church group. I hope to be enlightened.

I like your handle for here on HP. Sideways conjures up all kinds of notions. Is it opposed to "straightforward"? Anyhow thanks for your answer it is always good to get diverse comments even off the question topic.
Interesting as that is at the very end of Mathew and is really his instruction to the twelve. I guess that gets bootstrapped to mean all Christians should follow this teaching. Hmm. Some should not in my opine. "all the nations" seems instructional.
yes, the context is telling - but it is expanded upon in many of Paul's epistles as well. I don't recall Jesus ever telling to smack people upside the head and insult them for not falling in line though, like many people seem to practice daily.
JM Jesus said that if they did not want to hear then they should just move on to someplace else. No, he never did tell them to yell at them or curse or call them names either.
Lady, do you have some scripture there so we can look at it here.
That is the scripture I was thinking of as well. :)
I do not know you but will remember your name Robert. A wonderful group of remembrances of scripture. May we all be blessed to love and live them more fully.
