Nope, not that way. This way:

Thus the truth claim about Jesus’s Lordship does not lead in Acts to a narrative blueprint for the need to coerce others for their own good but to a form of mission that rejects violence as a way to ground peaceful community and instead witnesses to the Lord’s life of rejection and crucifixion by living it in publicly perceivable communities derisively called Christians.—World Upside Down, page 173

Would that we would recover some of that! Even so, make it happen Lord Jesus!
