Wink How to get saved....

How to be born again
How do people become “saved” and “born again” Christians? How can you receive eternal life so that you will be sure to go to be with God when you die? A widely distributed Christian tract says the following is what the Bible requires.

1.Admit that you are a sinner.
The Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
2.Know that God has already provided for your salvation.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
3.Know that you cannot save yourself.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us” (Titus 3:5).
4.Repent of your sins.
“Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).
5.Ask Jesus Christ to save you.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13) and “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
6.Proclaim Jesus before others.
“If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9, 10).
You can be joyously “saved” and “born again” and receive eternal life right NOW, as millions of people worldwide have, when you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior. Born-again Christians overwhelmingly look at their salvation as the most exciting event in their lives.

Can you genuinely say a prayer like the following? If you are sincere, God will immediately save you and give you everlasting life.

A guide to what to pray:

“Dear Father in Heaven, I realize that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins [wrongdoings]. I am willing to turn from my sins and lead the life you want me to lead. I now ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and I receive Him into my life as my personal Savior. I am willing, by God's grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Please forgive me for my sins and save me”

What you say is true, but there is more to it than that. If it was truly that easy there would not be so many who think they are saved but are lost.

Here is what is required of you in more detail.

http://www.apuritansmind.com/Jonatha...tionSought.htm

If salvation of the soul is not your #1 priority in life your chances are pretty slim. God can make sure that it becomes your number one priority.

Salvation is of the Lord. You'll never make it without his assistance.

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Samuel Davies once said that if people had any conception at all about eternal realities they would concern themselves with nothing else but to make a safe exit from this world.

here it is:

Surprise here is SOT to tell us this wouldn't be good enough, we've got to actually bend over and take the spiritual cock of god right up the anus with no lube....come on dude don't you get tired of this attitude constantly condemning, I bet you are a pretty cool cat outside of all this religion stuff but I can only assume it's most of your life now adays so you may not even act like yourself or still have that personality.

The ones who are condemning you are those who leave you in a false confidence.

I'm doing you a favour.

There is way more to salvation than saying the sinner's prayer. Way way way more.

Salvation means a cataclysmic change of your whole life.

Don't you think eternity in heaven vs hell is worth everything and anything?

Cool represents defiance of the wrath of God. Imagine living in defiance of a God who is capable of creating the whole universe and three dimensions in eternity, who threatens to unleash all his creative resources and power to cause you misery for all of eternity for the crimes you have committed against him.

A god who was willing to die in this world, despite of his inconceivable majesty and greatness, so that you could escape this terrible fate?

Satan likes to convince us that being aloof to his threatenings and mercy means that you are "cool".

To me that is the most vivid picture of insanity imaginable.

Since you explain it that way....
If I believed in the christian religion I might thank you for your ongoing attempts but I don't believe in what you believe. I wasn't saying if you're a christian you arent a cool dude but I also don't think god is going to condemn you to hell if you talk about other things or have hobbies outside of religious banter.

God knows them that are his, but if your priorities are in the world over salvation your state is highly suspect.

Let every man examine himself.

I have posted several vids on the subject of what a real Christian is all of which are from some of the most annointed men of God in the last 500 years.

Salvation is far too important a matter to leave to chance.
