7 Reasons Not To Ask Jesus Into Your Heart

This is a pamphlet/tract written by Dennis M. Rokser, pastor of Duluth Bible Church in Duluth, Minnesota. Download the booklet here. (PDF file)

The 7 reasons covered in the tract are:

1) “Don’t ask Jesus into your heart because…it is never found in the Bible.”
2) “Don’t ask Jesus into your heart because…it is not how someone is saved.”
3) “Don’t ask Jesus into your heart because…it requires no understanding of the Gospel of Grace to do it.”
4) “Don’t ask Jesus into your heart because…it confuses the means of salvation with the results of salvation.”
5) “Don’t ask Jesus into your heart because…it either results in no assurance of salvation or brings a false assurance to people.”
6) “Don’t ask Jesus into your heart because…Revelation 3:20 does not teach it.”
7) “Don’t ask Jesus into your heart because…it does not clarify the condition of salvation, it confuses it–especially with children.”

    You are so welcome. I felt that it hit at a very longstanding misconception that has had some dire results – like a lot of people thinking they’re saved when they probably aren’t. ~JB
