Why must we insist on doing it (wrong)?

“Joe Blow and Mary Googlanivich got saved yesterday.”

No foolin’?Confused Sign

And just how did that happen?

“Well, the same way it always happens…they decided to.”

Hey that sounds pretty easy…why didn’t I think of that!?

Now, since they’ve done the deed, they can just tool along on their merry way. I’m sure there won’t be any dying going on from here on out. It’s a done deal.

“Not so.  Now they’ve got a lot work to do. The spiritual project has just begun!”


It never ceases to amaze me how folks that elevate the Bible to the status of a paper pope, can totally ignore all the verses that say, without a doubt, that becoming a Christian has nothing to do…with you.

  1. Steve,

    It is indeed glorious and reassuring to know that being a Christian has absolutely nothing to do with our decision. As humans we are fickle and would decide to be saved and lost multiple times during the day.

    God’s peace. †

  2. IDavid,

    It is glorious and reassuring! Why then is this view so despised by so many?

  3. Because so many are a little full of themselves. Something good happened to ME? Good for ME. I’m glad that I did that. I accepted Christ. What do you mean the Bible says I was “born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”?

  4. Timm,


    When ‘I’ accept Christ it is only one little work.
    But that is one little work too many!

    And like you said, Timm, then the pride sets in…’I’ did it..I accepted Christ!

    Well, whoopdidoo…how big of you, to accept the living God. I am sure He is thrilled that He made the cut.

    Nice job, Timm!

    – Steve
