“I asked Jesus into my heart so I am going to heaven!”

These words are spoken by many. The sad thing is, it is the furthest thing from the truth.
You see, most do not understand what it means to accept true “Christianity.”
This is why this was written in 2 Peter:
20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. 22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”
Now what does it mean to “then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again?” It is self-explanatory. They get saved. Say those words in this title and then just go back to living their lives as they have always lived them, in sin.
And it is here that someone will protest: “But, I am saved, and you can’t take that from me!”
I am not, you are. Yes, you, yourself are taking your own salvation from yourself. For no one else can. Do you read the Bible and come to learn the true meaning of turning and following Jesus Christ? Do you know that if you cling tightly to a sin and refuse to reject it, it is that very sin that is your god and master? Not, Jesus or His Father.
A prime, and today, a very visible example of this: Those who live in Homosexuality, be they male or female. They claim to be “Christian,” and some even rise up to a place of power within places that call themselves “churches.” Yet this is what the Bible says about those that live in this sin.
1 Corinthians 6:9 – Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
If they will not make it into heaven, and then the eternal life that is beyond heaven. Then they are not “Christian.” This is stated clearly within the Bible. But, as I said this is a very visible example. As you look at the verse above you also see listed other sins. Greedy people, thieves, abusers, those that worship idols like sports, music and movie celebrities. These are just examples. There are others sins with this same promise in other books. Why they are not all listed together is due to those that were most prevalent in these cities the letters were written to. However, one which was usually listed was homosexuality. I am sorry, but these are the facts taught within the Bible, and try as hard as you wish to change this, the Word of God is unchangeable. For, as many wish to now believe, the Bible even though penned by humans, was not written by humans.
2 Timothy 3:14 – But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you. 15 You have been taught the Holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
We are required to repent:
Matthew 4:17 – From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”
Repent – metanoeo – “think differently after,” “after a change of mind”; to repent (literally, “think differently afterwards”).
If someone asks Jesus into their heart and to be their Savior, then they will think differently. They will call a sin a sin, No matter what sin it is. Then when they commit this sin themselves, they will feel remorse, sorrow and they will hurt emotionally inside. They will do their best to turn from this sin. They will strive to overcome its control over them. They will pray for forgiveness, they will plead for God for help to tear that sin from within them.
How do I know this? For this is how I feel when I sin.
No one is perfect. We all will sin. I personally will only belief I have done right when I stand before the Throne of God and I am wearing white robes. Until then I strive to follow the teachings of the Bible. To do as the Bible commands me to do, which is to write this blog as my ministry (2 Timothy 4:1-5).
I wish all to get into heaven and then enter into the eternal life. However, for this to happen. People need to come to the realization, that you just can’t say the words of this title and think all is fine and great. Then they will stand before God in white robes as well. That is why they need to think for themselves and not take the word of other humans, even my words. They must study the Bible and come to terms with those verse that list sins and make it clear that those that partake of these sins are not welcome in the eternal life that is soon to come.
I pray you take my words to heart and come to a true understanding and acceptance that God and His Son are real and that the Word of God is set in stone and cannot be change, just because humans wish it to change. With true repentance come great sorrow and pain. This pain comes from learning it is not our will, but Gods that must be done. That we are not the center of our lives, but it is God that is the center. That it is God that we must obey and follow, no matter the cost to us personally.

  1. This is why Islam is poised to rule the world. They have a standard and they hold their followers to it. Mankind needs boundaries and Islam offers the structure that one could previously find in Christian societies. Now the Catholic Pope and many Anglican denominations are forsaking the commands that have been taught since Christ and before Christ. This pervasive shifting of truth that is based on faulty logic and reasoning means the loss of moral philosophy that can stand up against the onslaught of Islam. Just as Israel was taken into captivity, Christendom is about to experience the same. All the scientist in the world can’t stop it.
