Clean up your language!!

  • “Ask Jesus into your heart”
  • “Make Him your Lord and Savior”
  • Make a “decision” to become a Christian
  • “Just say this simple prayer that will change your life”
  • “Just believe in God”
  • “Just ask for forgiveness”
  • “Accept” Jesus — This one is particularly bad

I hear these phrases over and over in the modern church, but the problem is that they are NOT in Scripture.  These are man-centered catch phrases that end up creating false Christians.  I know first hand… I was one for 22 years.  The modern message says that it is easy to become a Christian and gives people a false sense of salvation based upon a act or some magical phrase.  This gives them a wrong motive for their salvation and motive is the difference between Heaven… and Hell.  We need to clean up our language!!

If you participated in one of the activities above I am NOT saying you are not a Christian, but I do believe you need find out what the Bible says about the subject.  Check my next post for the Biblical method of salvation.
