Doctrine of Salvation False Ploy

Doctrine of a False Salvation Ploy
Salvation By Invitation
Inviting Jesus Into Your Heart Is Not Biblical

Majority of Church Age Believers are traditionalists because of the following reasons:
·    They do not take time to examine their church teaching.
·    They follow their leaders without questioning.
·    They go through ritualistic routine without evaluating their Scriptural basis.
·    They follow their church practices without even understanding their meaning.
·    They never question the teaching of their pastors or leaders.
·    They continue to practice things without even understanding their origin or meaning.
·    They keep protecting their distorted teachings
One of the popular but distorted teachings is based on Revelation 3:30, where they got the false teaching of accepting or inviting Jesus into their hearts. Revelation 3:20 is not about salvation but rebound which is to maintain fellowship with God. To say that Jesus Christ at the door of the heart is to superimpose a lie with the Scripture did not support. A Biblical doctrine is form and supported by all other doctrines. There are fifteen reasons to prove that accepting or inviting Jesus Christ into your heart is not biblical:

The teaching of accepting or inviting Jesus Christ into your heart is not biblical. There is no single verse in the Bible to support it and the very verse they claimed to support it is out of context.
There is no command or instruction in the Bible for us to accept or invite Jesus Christ into our hearts.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your hearts is another nonsense phraseology invented by the cults to deceive the people.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ is designed to sidetrack the grace plan of salvation.
To invite or accept Jesus into your hearts is to put human good work above the grace of God.
The teaching of inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your hearts will give the unsaved a false sense of security.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your hearts cannot save.
The grace plan of salvation is to simply believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31).
The teaching of inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your heart leaves out the power of God to save.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your hearts is not the way of salvation but satanic scheme to deceive people.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your hearts is an emotional evangelism through formulated prayer that cannot save.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your hearts produce false converts which glorifies Satan through their human good.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your hearts hinders and ridicules the cause and purpose of evangelism by producing church members who are not saved.
Inviting or accepting Jesus Christ into your heart is not part of God’s plan, purpose or system.
John 6:47 explains what it means to come to Christ:  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who  believes [in Me] has eternal life.”  Always in the salvation invitation we go to Jesus Christ; He does not come to us.  Therefore, note that there are three blasphemous invitations: We do not invite Christ to come to us.

SALVATION BY INVITATION: We do not invite Christ anywhere.  He does not come to us; we come to Him by believing through His Word. In Matthew 11:28, the Lord says, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”  There is no salvation apart from the Gospel.
John 6:35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in me will never thirst.” John 6:37 “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.”
John 6:47 explains what it means to come to Christ:  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who  believes [in Me] has eternal life.”  Always in the salvation invitation we go to Jesus       Christ; He does not come to us.  Therefore, note that there are three blasphemous invitations: We do not invite Christ to come to us.
Revelation 3:20 is addressed to believers: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.”  This is a verse dealing with recovery from carnality, and has nothing to do with salvation. We do not invite Christ into our heart.  Jeremiah 17.9 teaches about our heart, The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?  Inviting Christ into our heart is an emotional form of legalism.
We do not invite Christ into our life.  Romans 5:12 teaches about our life, Therefore, just as through one man, sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.
The unbeliever is under spiritual death, which means total depravity and being completely cut off from God.  We do not invite Jesus Christ into a state of total depravity, and we do not invite Jesus Christ into spiritual death.  We make no invitations to Jesus Christ!  If that is all you’ve ever done, you had better believe in Jesus Christ or you will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire.  Salvation is through faith alone in Christ alone; He invites us to come to Him – we do not invite Him to come to us.   Faith Plus Nothing as the Condition for Eternal Salvation
Examine yourself if you are in the faith!
Salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone; nothing is added.  There are three reasons for faith plus nothing as the condition for eternal salvation:
1.    Efficacious grace (God doing the work and God getting the credit), documented by Ephesians 2:8-9.
2.    Our Lord’s utterance on the cross, “Tetelestia!”  [It is finished, with the result that it stands finished.]
3.    The direct statement of Scripture.

Galatians 2:16, “nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified.”

Some of the “Salvation” that cannot saves are:
1.    Salvation by verbal confession and testimony
2.    Salvation by repentance and believing
3.    Salvation by inviting Jesus into your heart
4.    Salvation by acknowledging Christ publicly
5.    Salvation by water baptism by immersion
6.    Salvation by partaking of the Eucharist
7.    Salvation by coming forward
8.    Salvation by raising your hands
9.    Salvation by joining a church
10.    Salvation by doing certain sacrifice
11.    Salvation by giving sacrificially
12.    Salvation by doing penance
13.    Salvation by having good morality
14.    Salvation by reformation of character
15.    Salvation by personality change
16.    Salvation by repentance (loud crying)
17.    Salvation by making vows and promises
Majority of believers are the product of manipulation techniques used by preachers whose priority is church statistics and not spirituality. They use several techniques such as:
PRESENTATION TECHNIQUES that applies psychological, emotional, or rational manipulations resulting to false professions of faith. Such preachers are like salesmen capable of selling anything even rotten tomatoes. False professions of faith are common in many local churches.
INVITATION TECHNIQUES are employed during the invitation by preachers who wanted to make impression that a big number of people are being saved in his ministry. Everything are designed by the preacher to mislead the people starting from music, the songs, the terms used by the preacher, and other props. Such human manipulations are effective in the business world but have no place in the Christian realm. These manipulations produce nothing but false profession of faith, resulting to fake Christians who climb the local church leadership manufacturing many problems. These are fake Christians serving God without the reality of salvation. They were taught the doctrine of sacrifice but not salvation.
