Should We Stop Asking Jesus Into Our Hearts?

If there were a Guinness Book of World Records record for "amount of times having asked Jesus into your heart," I'm pretty sure I would hold it.

By the time I reached the age of 18 I had probably "asked Jesus into my heart" 5,000 times. I started somewhere around age 4 when I approached my parents one Saturday morning asking how someone could know that they were going to heaven. They carefully led me down the "Romans Road to Salvation," and I gave Jesus his first invitation into my heart.

Both my parents and my pastor felt confident of my sincerity and my grasp on the details, and so I was baptized. We wrote the date in my Bible and I lived in peace about the matter for nearly a decade. ...

Eph 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Eph 3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
Eph 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
Eph 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
Eph 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Hmmm! By faith? Then no faith, no Jesus Christ dwelling in the heart.

Quick! John Y., read the entire article, Should We Stop Asking Jesus Into Our Hearts? this has the paging turned off (When did "Christianity Today" have such good articles ) You asking "Jesus into your heart," was no more meaningful than when this fellow did in his earlier encounters with Christianity.

James 2
18 But someone may well say, "You have faith, and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works."
20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless?---NASB

You haven't shown the necessary work in the action to Come out of the Catholic Church.

Let's consider:
By grace (God's provision and power for completely changing a person into a new creation in Christ)
Are you saved (forgiven, reconciled and made acceptable to God)

through religious ritual and mysticism?

through faith, the substance (received as Truth) of what God Himself says and reveals to us in the Bible, the evidence of the supernatural work of regeneration that is not directly seen with human eyes, but clearly seen in the life of one changed by God and for God.

Others may word this far better than I can at this moment but I will stand by the conviction God has given me, the RCC's eucharist is a blasphemous idolatrous counterfeit of the real presence of Christ that genuine born again believers know in the new birth when the Holy Spirit indwells them at conversion, regenerating them into being literally a child of God.

Interesting Post
Having been raised Roman Catholic I am more than well aware that Catholics believe 'their jesus' is only in their stomachs for about 15 minutes while the communion wafer dissolves. Quite different than:

John 6:56
He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

Please do note the word "abides". The RCC gets John 6 horribly wrong for the eating of His flesh and the drinking of His blood is a matter of faith, a matter or receiving Jesus Christ for who He is, coming under His sovereign authority, entrusting oneself to His mighty immeasurable grace and power to save from sin not (temporary) ritual.

It's not about what he can do, it's about what he does. Bible says his Holy Spirit dwells in the person. It doesn't say anywhere he dwells in grain-derived bread. HE is the bread.

Jesus always literally means what he says, but he doesn't always mean to be taken literally.

The article hit an enormously important reality right on the head.

The article spoke of how this person never took the Lordship of Jesus Christ seriously.

For someone who takes the Lordship of Christ seriously, He absolute sovereign right to reign as Lord in every area of life, including what church we attend or not, JY then asking Him to come into ones heart and cleanse it of sin and take the throne of ones will, emotions, mind and being, to lead them in doing the will of God, I have no problem whatsoever.

But for those who would abuse Jesus Christ and pervert the gospel into somekind of ticket to heaven when you die with a license to, and let's be honest here, to wickedly disregard Holy God and what He rightfully expects and requires of His truly born again children, that kind of thing makes me want to vomit at how evil it is and weep that human beings could be so twisted in their own made up religion that they will indeed be told, 'I never knew you', and perish in the eternal hell they imagined they were escaping by just mouthing 'magic' words.

No. It says
Rom 10:9
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

It is totally biblical for one to pray to Jesus and ask Him to come into ones heart and become ones Personal Lord and Savior because Romans 10:9 states that is the way to become saved. That is the basis of the Altar Call to get individuals saved.
