no coercion needed

... no one gives himself freely and willingly to God's service unless, having tasted his fatherly love, he is drawn to love and worship him in return. ~ John Calvin, The Institutes of Christian Religion, 1.v.3

I love this and I continue to be frustrated by so many continuing to (1) attempt to coerce others to faith or conversely (2) misinterpret confidence in Truth as coercion.
