If a man wants to love God above all else and their neighbor as themself...forever...I will teach them about repentance from sin.branham1965 wrote: ↑Thu Jan 03, 2019 5:47 amHill Top,
Could you please explain how you would tell an unsaved person to be saved?
Do you teach them to pray to God in the Name of Jesus and plead for mercy on the merits of the Blood of Jesus Christ /the Sinners Prayer
Or do you teach you must first be water baptized to pray.
If they are intent on living without sin from that point forward, we will baptize them in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of past sins. (Acts 2:38)
If their repentance from sin was real, making them in effect non-sinners, they are told to start praying for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
God doesn't hear sinners, but His ears are open to ex-sinners who have been cleansed from all past sin.
It is written..."Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled."
The Lord will grant the Comforter/seal of the inheritance to those who love Him above all else.
The 'sinner's prayer' is an ungodly circumvention of the commandments of Jesus and of Peter.
Every single one of those who use that "prayer" still commits sin.
One doesn't disobey "their Lord and Savior".
