David Platt Still Addressing Controversy Over 'Sinner's Prayer' Remarks


Pastor David Platt

It was a three-minute video clip that was shared across the evangelical community. In it, Pastor David Platt famously called the "sinner's prayer" "superstitious." A few months later, he still finds himself explaining the heart behind that message.

"I believe we simply need to be as biblical as possible (2 Timothy 2:15). Do I believe it is 'wrong' for someone to pray a 'prayer of salvation'? Certainly not," Platt maintained in a blog post this week.

The 33-year-old pastor, who leads The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Ala., sparked debate earlier this year when he told attendees at the Verge Conference that there is "no such superstitious prayer in the New Testament," referring to the popular "sinner's prayer." ...

How dare you! The LBCF/WCF isn't superior to the Calvinist scripture: Matthew (Henry), Luther, and John (Calvin).

The effectiveness, or lack thereof, of the sinners prayer "Lord, be merciful to me a sinner." (Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved) can't be determined apart from the effectiveness of the gospel preached, which is the power of God unto salvation.

God said the word that went out of His mouth would never return unto Him void but would accomplish His pleasure (Is 55:11).

But since the sinners prayer is typically used by preachers who also teach freewill theism, it's no wonder why the Word preached and the convicting work of the Holy Spirit are left out of the discussion. After all, for the freewill theist, God is passive until the sinner makes a decision to accept or reject His grace and mercy.

Speaking of superstitions, don't forget praying novenas, not eating meat on Friday, belief in purgatory, praying to dead people, holding Mary as a mediator between God and man, creating saints out of the dead, forbidding priests to marry, that there is in existence a vicar of Christ., etc.
Surely there are enough superstitions to go around.
Praying, fasting, admitting unrelenting sin, acknowledging the Theotokos, noting single preachers like Paul & Jesus and understanding that a great cloud of witnesses who can see, hear AND do are somehow all anti-Christian superstitions? Interesting perspective.

The “sinner’s prayer” and in many cases “going to the alter” are today’s equivalent to infant baptism in the 17th and 18th century. Say the prayer and you are in…no questions asked. Nothing wrong with praying or praying at an alter at the front of a church but these actions do not save. Give the message by Ray Comfort a listen on True and False Conversion. http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=517121549270

A rabbit's foot, a horseshoe, a four leaf clover, a broken mirror, a black cat under your ladder, yet another divorce, a Friday the thirteenth and a Sinner's Prayer are all in the same category: Superstition.

From an eternal standpoint they do nothing for nor to you. They're completely powerless. But many-a-Christian would believe they either add to or subtract evil from one's life. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Pastor Platt's on point. Salvation is always of God, not man.

Meanwhile, the SBC writes brand new Scripture.
