    How to be saved (born again) and join the family of God!! Romans: Chapter 10 verse 9-10-13
    God says==That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
    and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him
    from the dead, thou shalt be Saved. For with the heart man
    believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession
    is made unto Salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the
    name of the Lord shall be Saved..........

    ----------

    Here is an "example prayer" if you have never talked to God..........
    Heavenly Father:.........
    I come to you in prayer asking for the forgiveness of
    my Sins. I confess with my mouth and believe with my
    heart that Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the
    Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven and have
    Eternal Life in the Kingdom of Heaven. Father, I believe
    that Jesus rose from the dead and I ask you right now
    to come in to my life and be my personal Lord and
    Savior. I repent of my Sins and will Worship you all the
    day's of my Life!. Because your word is truth, I confess
    with my mouth that I am Born Again and Cleansed
    by the Blood of Jesus! In Jesus Name, Amen

    I prayed such a prayer as a boy when I found a tract in my Halloween loot, but I wasn't born again until I was 39. The only difference was belief. As a boy I wanted it to be true, but couldn't accept that all I needed to do was pray a prayer, and consequently my unbelief in the simplicity of the gospel deprived me of receiving it as true. I wish that everyone would pray such a prayer in faith, but it's still the Lord who chooses when we will believe and consequently when we recieve Him.

    Sorry doesnt work that way, one can get a parrot to sat that and irt will not be saved, It has to be ones own word from ones own heart, it is teh only way. Repeating words saves no one.

    God will not force anyone to believe in God and His love and mercy or to reject God's love.We are all free to choose so choose wisely!!!

    Sorry, but it can work that way.
    The key here is to believe in your heart and confess. This can be done with your own words or with the words above.
    God reads the intent and faith of the heart no matter what words you use.

    If you believed with your heart, than your mouth would confess, and would need anyone to tell you what to say.

    here then is the problem and crux of the matter, just casually ignored or brushed off - how old does one have to be to be certain they simply believe - btw like Nicodemus were you not a Christian requiring that you be born again as a Christian - twinc

    Those that try to stop the gospel from being posted here are blinded by satan and used as his tool, fool, puppet and ther by are asking and daring early judgement.
    Sorry! But I must hurry and try to get as much Truth of God's Word posted here as I can because our very "Christian" mods. are telling me ""YOU ARE BANNED"" May God rebuke those that try to hinder His Word from being posted to the lost!!

    What a great promise from God!!
    God says==no weapon forged against me will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17

    No. I was no more Christian than the average Jew of 2000 years ago. I learned how to recite prayers, and perform sacramental duties, but I know for a fact that I did not receive the Holy Spirit until I genuinely believed and committed my soul to His keeping at the age of 39 in an employee parking lot while in prayer to receive Him with my dear brother in Christ, Jerome.

    impossible according to scripture[Jn 14:17] - it does not pass notice that no one claims another source nor that all appear to be born again and even created in the image and likeness of GOD - great for individual egos but does not say much for God/Holy Spirit etc - twinc

    This post doesn't actually say anything. Could you state your objection in something resembling modern English, so that it might be answered?

    I am just a bit curious. What exactly do you think John 14:17 means?

    this is the all time insurmountable problem of individual interpretation where it can say whatever the individual wishes and here one must decide who the you is and who the world is - do not claim inspiration via the H/S and drag the H/S into your error - that is blasphemy and the unforgiveable sin if unrepented - twinc

    What must I do to be saved. BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. That is where it starts.
