Is it possible to simply get saved when you hear about Jesus but don't hear bible verses from the bible? Can you even get faith this way? Or do you in every case need to read or hear real bible verses from the bible? The bible says that faith comes from the word of God, does this mean that a person which has no access to the bible can impossibly get faith in Jesus? Not even if this person hears about Jesus but has no access to a real bible? Would this not limit God somehow? I mean if God wants to save somebody can he not simply impart faith in this person? Can you not simply have faith in Jesus when you heard about Jesus or grow up in a christian country? I think that in the USA everybody has at least heard about Jesus. And what I'd also like to ask is why are there many preachers which talk negatively about the "ask Jesus into your heart" stuff? They talk about it as if this was an indicator of false converts. The people which simply ask Jesus to come into their heart. Is it not biblical to ask Jesus into your heart? Do you not have to say this in order to get saved? Well, even if you don't have to say it where's the problem? I don't think that asking Jesus into your heart is wrong. In the end it all comes down to how sincere the person is. I also don't know if you directly have to be fundamental and radical when you get saved. I think when I got saved I didn't know so much about all these things and I rather saw it as an insurance. I also didn't even know what God expects from me but having peace with God is good, so why not do it? But over the years I got access to sermons and books and learned new things and also became more serious, at least I hope that I became more serious, but I don't know if it wouldn't have been overwhelming if I had directly been confronted with all these things directly in the beginning. Maybe this would have repelled me. All the different christian doctrines and that different opinions and all that. But somehow I always get worried when I hear such things such as "you cannot get saved without the right bible or hearing the word of God" because then I think what if I don't even have the real faith or what if I cannot even get born again and accept Jesus if I haven't been taught the basic doctrines first. I don't know if I understood all the basic doctrines in the beginning, does this mean you cannot get saved if you don't understand these things even though you want to get saved? I hope not.
