Strange! Bible verses until this really big point
See this page about how to know God. Every point has one or more Bible verses to substantiate it. (We have a beef with some of those points, but leave it for now.) There are Bible verses all over, until it comes down to answer the most important question that man can consider: “What must I do to accept Jesus’ gift of forgiveness and eternal life?”
The answer? “Pray a prayer like this:” …
And then a prayer that comes, not from the Bible, but from somebody’s imagination.
No Bible verse. No Bible proof. No Bible citation. Just somebody’s made-up prayer.
Strange, isn’t it, how people claim to tell you what the Bible is saying, and then when it comes to explaining how to be saved, they drop the Bible altogether?
Very strange, indeed.
The Bible has plenty to say about how to know God, how to accept Jesus’ gift of forgiveness and eternal life. But there is no prayer in the Bible like the one published on the page. The Bible never, ever tells anybody to pray a prayer in order to be saved. There are very different answers, but the authors of the webpage prefer their own version of what to do.
Nothing Christian to that.
