conversion.

is conversion necessary? i define the word to mean leading someone in what most might call “the sinners prayer”. nowhere in scripture is there a “conversion of any type”. people follow. people walk away. but not one person says a prayer. they make a decision to join or not join Christ’s mission. he doesn’t force them. he doesn’t coerce them. i think our idea of conversion was adopted from marketing strategies from fortune 500 companies. we might need to revisit the idea of conversion also because the word doesn’t appear in scripture as well. the idea is that we live our lives following our rabbi and our lives will change the lives of other. transference. it is inevitable. we should be okay with that being enough. not numbers. no intentions. just being what god has made us. it is about us converting ourselves constantly. becoming more and more like christ. that is enough to change the world. right?
