One of my acquaintances who has always criticized me that I send him religious emails, told me once that faith in God is an intimate matter, that is not witnessed to others and therefore, I or somebody else do not need to enforce him believe in God. What would you reply him? Thank you again and God help you!
If your friend asked you to no longer send him email with religious message, do as he requests and no longer send him any email. Continue to pray for his salvation and that God will show you how to tell him the Gospel in another way, but also to send him other people to communicate to him the clear and understandable message of Christ and be saved.

The Lord Jesus commanded us to confess the Gospel
The Savior’s command is to go to all people, of any people, to the end of the earth. This is the Great Commission:
Go therefore andmake disciples ofall the nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo,I am with youalways, even tothe end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20)(NASB)
It would be the greatest crime to not care about the salvation of your friend and not to have told him this great message of the Gospel for the salvation of his soul. If he rejects, it is his choice, but continue to pray for his salvation and continue to tell all your friends about Christ. Also …
Use Christian holidays
There are at least two Christian holidays which give you the opportunity to remind to all your acquaintances and friends about Christ and the Gospel and they are Christmas and Easter. That’s why, make a good plan how to once again share the Gospel message through a well-made card with this friend and others who have rejected the Word of God so far.
