Bible does not teach so. The real Christianity would not suggest anything like this and if it has happened in past and present, it is regrettable. From my experience I can firmly say that it did not happen with me and I have not seen it happening so far. Probably I would be the first person to object if I see so.
Our God is not religious, but He is a spiritual being and He is interested in saving souls from hell and bringing them in His kingdom (heaven) to have fellowship with them because He loves them. So for Him as well His real disciple, religion is of least concern.
“God is Spirit, and his worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth.”
If we are true disciples of Christ, religious conversion is out of picture. It is a deception, a show-off which does not have any substance in it. Change of the inner man is the true transformation from darkness to light and from death to life.
Jesus did not initiate any religion and hence not even once in the Bible, he mentioned to do religious conversion. He rather asked to witness His love and salvation to the ends of the earth so that peoples from all nations may receive salvation of their souls.
