The problems I have with the Romans Road is that it does not present a clear presentation of the gospel. Many times it leaves out repentance and the Lordship of Christ. The Romans Road is presented in a quick manner in order to lead the lost to "the sinner's prayer". Even if the person shows no interest, they are many times manipulated and pressured to repeat a prayer. The only scripture that comes close to supporting the sinner's prayer is Romans 10:13. Romans 10:13 "For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." Perhaps someone here can explain this verse in it's proper context. The "call" may refer to prayer and there is nothing wrong with prayer. But there is a difference between a lost person praying for THEMSELVES and expressing their repentance and faith than some "soul winner" making them REPEAT a prayer. We are not saying that praying is wrong if the person has truly repented and trusted in Christ at that moment. But let us not manipulate people into repeating a "sinner's prayer". This 1-2-3- repeat after me is found no where in the Bible. That's what we mean by the "sinner's prayer". So again I don't see Romans 10:13 supporting the "sinner's prayer". Another error with this method of "soul winning" is that right after they repeat that prayer they are presented with at least two scripture texts given them ASSURANCE of their salvation. The "soul winner" tells the person that they are now saved, a child of God. Next, the soul winner invites the person to visit his church and walk down the aisle during the altar call invitation to publicly confess Christ to the church. The soulwinner pressures the person to make a promise to God or shake the soul winner's hand agreeing that he will make this public confession at church. This is taken from Matthew 10:32. 32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven." This is a misapplication of the text because in this very passage Jesus is speaking to His disciples about confessing not a lost sinner. Water baptism is how we publicly declare to the church that we are now a child of God. Not walking down an aisle during an altar call to publicly tell the church that they are saved. But many only go this far and never get baptized, and yet they were declared a child of God, making the soul winner and the pastor look bad. This method of evangelism is clearly taught in John R Rice's book "The Golden Path To Successful Personal Soul Winning". I know Rice believed in repentance but according to this book he also believed in using the Romans Road and the Sinner's Prayer. So was John R Rice also guilty of teaching easy prayerism (easy believism)? Can someone still be saved with this method? Yes, because we are never saved because of some method of evangelism we get saved by the grace of God. They get saved DESPITE of their method of soul winning. By the way, I also believe that the term "soul winning" has been hijacked by people who use this method of quick prayerism.
