It is the Christian belief that when we go into the world in Jesus’ name, the world will be transformed by our presence. Of course, sometimes we get this terribly, horribly wrong. Sometimes we think it’s our job to force “belief in Jesus” on others, to convince, cajole, or – even worse – enforce “Christianity” upon those we meet. This is no gift, but a gross misunderstanding of the Love of God that is manifest in Christ Jesus. So, I get why some Christians ignore Jesus’ command to Go – but Jesus does indeed command it.
