We have heard it said, "If you will accept Jesus as your personal savior you will be saved." By this action, it is said, a person will suddenly be ‘born again’, obtain eternal life, and go to heaven. Though this offer sounds very pious, and God-honoring, it actually stands in stark contrast to what the Bible teaches concerning how sinners are saved-by the finished works of Jesus Christ. There is a certain nuance to this expression that almost forbids criticism. After all, who would argue against anyone accepting Jesus? If one did, they might be labeled as a cynic that stood in the way of truth, and the salvation of sinners. After all, doesn’t everyone want people to accept Jesus?
