A Prayer
of Jesus
I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.
The  Voice  of  Jesus
This is my Son, my Chosen; Listen to Him!

Christian False Doctrines
#19 - Receiving Jesus Into Your Heart
The False Teaching

From Billy Graham: At this glorious Easter season, what a time to give your life to Christ, to bend your will to His; to let the resurrected Christ come to dwell in your heart and give you supernatural power to meet the problems of the day. Give your life to Christ.

First, you need to renounce your sins. Then, by faith receive Him as your Savior. Will you do that today? If you will, the resurrected Christ will come to live in your heart!

How do you receive Jesus into your heart?
1. Turn from your sin to God through Christ.
2. Place your trust in Jesus for eternal life.
3. Ask him to be your Lord and take control of your life.
4. Pray this prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need forgiveness from You. I believe that You died on the cross and rose again from the dead in order that I might receive eternal life. I turn from my sins and ask forgiveness from You. Right now I trust You as my Savior and will follow You as my Lord. Thank You for hearing my prayer and give me eternal life. In Jesus' Name, Amen
Exposing the Error

It's true. The three step plan and the Sinner's Prayer makes one a Christian, fit to join countless churches where joyful welcome and continual affirmation leaves no doubt. One lustily sings "Since Jesus Came Into My Heart" with the congregation and all rejoice together!  I did!  So, it's true. This makes one a Christian, gets one into a church, and causes one to believe that Jesus has come into the heart -- but that is not true!

Doesn't it seem important to hear what Jesus says about this? He is the one entering the heart and setting the conditions. He has not, in any scripture, said that a stepwise Plan of Salvation plus a Sinners Prayer opens your heart to him. He clearly states his terms for entering, and you find them in the next column. If this is your case, you have been deceived by churchmen, who are themselves deceived by one of the most tragic of all deceptions.

No excuses, for the Lord warns all:
But false Christs and false prophets will arise and will make signs and wonders in order to be deceiving if possible, the chosen. But you be looking; I have foretold you everything.
(Mk.13:22 FNT) 
Declaring the Truth
If you agape-love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the father and he will give you another advocate, in order that he be with you to eternity - the spirit of truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because it does not behold him nor know [him]. You know him, because he dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans, I come to you. Yet [a] little [while] and the world no longer beholds me, but you behold me, because I zoe-live and you will zoe-live. In that day you will know that I [am] in my father and you in me and I in you. The [one] having my commandments and keeping them, that is the [one] agape-loving me; and the [one] agape-loving me will be agape-loved by my father, and I will agape-love him and reveal myself to him.. . .  If anyone agape-loves me, he will keep my word, and my father will agape-love him, and we will come to him, and we will make our dwelling-place with him. The [one] not agape-loving me does not keep to my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but of the father having sent me. (Jn.14:5-24 FNT). Read more on the Word in Jesus: the Rock of Offense.
