Episode 109: Deep Concerns About The Sinner's Prayer
For close to 80 years, most church attendees have been invited into an eternal relationship with God via the repeating of what is commonly known as the sinner’s prayer. The motivation behind using this prayer as a means to welcome sinnersinto the Kingdom is to honor the requirement of confessing Jesus as Lord with the mouth. The weakness of emphasizing this prayer is that it does nothing to gauge whetheror not the hearts of the people repeating the prayeris actually engaged while their mouths are moving.Jeff Lyle’s opinion is that we are now reaping in the American church the heavy consequences of this longstanding, superficial mode of evangelism. This episode of #MavericksAndMisfits calls the listener to deeply consider everything elsethat the Bible communicates about what it means to be saved. An ignorance of these crucial scriptures has likely left countless people in churches wrongly convinced that they are in right standing with God. To date, this may be the most important episode of Mavericks and Misfits that has been released. Consider deeply what you hear.
