"And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Matt 4:19 Can any of you show me where it's recorded in the Bible that we are to walk the isle; make a decision; make a commitment; cough up the devil; recite a canned prayer; attend a class; or any of the other several requirements levied by individual churches? Give an invitation? Be in constant fear of "losing ones salvation". Goodness! Where is it recorded that preachers/laymen are to beg others to believe, to walk the isle, to make said decision, etc.? Jesus never "begged" anyone. All he advocated was to, follow him. To repent. To believe. To follow... We are instructed in Matt 11:28 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and LEARN of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. We that labor and are heavy laden..., with what? from what? Heavy laded, the results of the world? What is that LABOR that we are involved in that is so heavy? We are to LEARN of Him. His yoke is easy, and His burden is light. ...why do we make things so hard? Just for a name on the church rolls that adhere to the pre-approved..., "that's the way we do it here"?
