Every church trying to recruit more members to join its religion. So, if you have your own religion, and you are deeply believing it, would you try to convince others to join your religion too? For instance, you try to convince your friend, or co - workers; and explain to them how great is your religion.

If you believe something so strongly For me I guess I wont have to convince others to join me coz for me its a choice people search for truth and eventually if someone see you as a good example then he will come to know what religion you are into then probably he will join you but convincing someone would be a big no for me.....I am not more of a religious person I believe what I want to believe I dont do what other pious Christians do but that doesnt mean I care less this is my choice to be the way I am so not even my own religion can convince me to be active on it.

Even if I was religious I wouldn't, everyone has their own path. Just because a path is right for me, doesn't mean it is for someone else; and who am I to try and tell someone what is best for them?

I am a Christian. I love the Lord and seek His will for my life. I pray continually and have experienced God in many ways throughout my life. He is totally awesome. However, I would never try to convince someone to 'join my religion' I don't have a religion, I have a God that loves me and desires to have a personal and real relationship with me and with everyone else. I do try to introduce others to Him but not unless God was already at work in their heart. It is my purpose to love others to care for them and to pray for them. It is God that will draw them to Him. If God does not draw someone to Him it won't matter what I say. It really is not about a religion it is about a relationship.

No! I hate convincing other people to join our religion, that is not right either. We are free country everyone is free to believe nor choose religion he wants.
