"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.
So, all you creative people out there - Who has a way of concisely explaining salvation that is both Biblical and does not use these phrases or their equivalents.
Inquiring minds want to know!
