Matthew 18:15 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
"No one can call himself a follower of Jesus who is refusing to obey His orders. Since this order to evangelize the world was clearly and repeatedly given, it must be obeyed. Jesus' commission to evangelize the world was not a suggestion to be considered but a command to be obeyed. Jesus' followers did not consider this Great Commission to evangelize the world as an option to entertain but rather saw it as a mandate to fulfill whatever the cost." - Earley, Dave; Wheeler, David (2010-06-01).
