Apparently, this is all you need to be saved, according to Baptist belief. "Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I deserve to pay my own sin debt, but I do believe that You died for me to pay the debt that I owe. Today, the best I know how, I trust You as my Saviour. I will depend on You from this moment on for my salvation. Amen." 1 Recognize that you are a sinner 2 Admit that you deserve punishment for your sins 3 Recognize that Jesus died for our sins 4 Trust that Jesus will keep His promise So then I may assume that everything else is nonessential to salvation? Then why are you guys always so worked up about everything else? This "sinners prayer" doesn't say anything about interpretting Scripture, or not praying to Saints, or statues, or sexual orientation, or soul sleep, or the Book of Mormon, or the Real Presence in Eucharist. It doesn't even say anything about being sorry for your sins or resolving to try to not sin in the future. If that's all there is, why not accept it when someone does it and let the rest go? Or is this a case of false advertising?
