Have You Trusted In The "Sinner's Prayer"?

Declaring war on the "Sinner's Prayer"

"God doesn't save because of the Sinner's Prayer. He saves in spite of it." - Paul Washer

Praying a prayer one time and expecting salvation based on it is sloppy evangelism/easy believeism, heresy and sending many to hell. There are several components one needs to examine to see whether they are truly saved. Looking back to one prayer one has prayed at some point in their lives and trusting in that is dangerous and self deceit. The fact that so many leave a church after praying that prayer and return to the world is strong and terrible evidence the prayer is useless. It's also not found anywhere in Scripture.

Many preachers don't preach repentance. They appeal to masses based on the coveting nature already in man. They promise hearers success, money, cars, homes, "your best life now" then they boast in the number of converts. The problem is most, if not all, of those "converts" are still just as worldly as when they walked into the church. They've taken goats and are now simply calling them sheep while ignoring the fact that they still look and act just like goats. Preachers are going to pay for that. There is no evolution in the sheep fold. Either regeneration has taken place or it hasn't and the proof is in the fruit.

"You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?" Matthew 7:16

Salvation and regeneration is a work done only by God not man and certainly not by a single prayer. Churches claim there's a lack of discipleship and set up multi-million dollar programs and all the evidence shows they don't work because regeneration never took place. Discipleship is important, but only after there has been a work of the Spirit. Regardless of discipleship in a church or not, a true convert will bear fruit because of the Holy Spirit. They call these goats "Carnal Christian" while Scripture calls them unbelievers.

The repentance of the Gospel is hardly used and God's holiness rarely talked about because it offends people. The Law is rarely held up to show we've broken every law, are damned and on our way to hell. Counting the cost of following Christ is almost unheard of. The fruit of the Spirit is almost never taught to gauge one's salvation as Scripture teaches. The Gospel has been set aside for decisionism and it's created churches filled with goats who believe they're sheep. If you came to be a Christian by and through the "Sinner's Prayer"....

"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves..." 2 Corinthians 13:5

"Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall," 2 Peter 1:10
