Do I have to ask Jesus into my heart to be saved? [Spirituality & Religion]

Asking God to save you from God. Hmmm...

How does Jesus get 'into' a person's heart? Jesus is not alive, allegedly. if Jesus is alive Jesus is not human therefore will be 'incompatible' with human flesh and blood physisology.

You know how vampires need to be invited inside a house to come in?
Jesus is kinda a vampire if you think of it

As a Southern Baptist we are taught that yes we do , admit we are sinners and ask his forgiveness before God . It is only then that we are saved ( basically John 3:16)

If you have not been saved already, and if you would like to be saved, then repent of your sins with a sincere heart, and ask Jesus to forgive your sins.

The Holy Spirit will indwell you automaticaly once you believe Jesus and trust in the Atonement He secured to save you..
Kid: “you saved me!”

Neo: “you saved yourself.”

You have to repent by confessing your sins and declare you are saved by Jesus's ultimate final Sacrifice on the cross and He risen up in 3 days. Which is the Victory over Death/Sin. The only sinless and the only way.

He will come into your heart if you confess with your mouth that he died and rose again and you follow him.

@Carazaa I'd prefer to allow a woman into my heart as I am not gay thanks if you don't mind. Why would I want to 'follow' Jesus?
Carazaa · F
@zonavar68 I misunderstood you, I thought you wanted to know how to be saved from Gods wrath.

Yes, I think so

@Agent Usually I don't like to preach hell, but since you asked if someone doesn't accept Jesus into their lives then eventually they'll go to hell. Jesus is the only way to heaven.

[quote] Jesus is the only way to heaven.[/quote]

Then how did Enoch, who lived long before before Jesus was even born, go directly into Heaven with God without Jesus?
Classified · M
@PatKirby It says Enoch was taken away. It doesn't explicitly state he went to heaven.
Jesus' parabel of Lazarus and the rich man suggests there is a waiting place, though since it's a parabel we don't know whether Jesus meant that place literaly.

Anyway I intended to give @Agent a clear general answer, not to cover every theological side discussion there might be.
shuhak · M
It doesn't work that way.

Jesus said - Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved.

@TheWildEcho Will you convince me that I'm not saved?
TheWildEcho · 56-60, M
@Agent I don't know anything about you, but God does, He knows your heart, ask Him yo convince you!
alongalone · M
No just go steady
According to Christian mythology, yes, which makes no sense since an [i]unconditionally[/i] loving and forgiving god would "save" everyone no matter the circumstances.
PatKirby · M
Isn't there a passage in the Koran about someone asking lord Jesus if he's going to Heaven even though he sinned a lot in his life, and he replies shush don't tell anyone they're going to Heaven anyway, lest they sin without limit knowing they'll be forgiven?

If you are asking from a Christian world view then yes.
zonavar68 · 51-55, M
@REMsleep No you wrote as though your beliefs are scientifically provable facts.
REMsleep · 41-45, F
@zonavar68 In both comments I prefaced my statement by saying
[quote]" If you are asking from a Christain perspective", then.....[/quote]
That's what my disclaimer was referring to sir. That the information that I am providing is from a Christian perspective. Never mind the fact that the OP is obviously asking about Christian beliefs.
Thus I was actually going out of my way to acknowledge that not everyone shares my beliefs dedpite OP asking for Christian beliefs.
Either you didn't comprehend what I wrote or you just want to attack.
zonavar68 · 51-55, M
@REMsleep Ok well as I'm a person who has been both deeply religious and is now deeply irreligious, I am uniquely positioned to straddle the preverbial knife edge and understand the issues from both points of view.
Having anything in your heart but blood could kill you.
