"Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."

  • “When you take them through that little thing,
  • “Did you ask Jesus into your heart?”
  • “Yes.”
  • “Do you think you were sincere?”
  • “Yes.”
  • “Do you think he saved you?”
  • “I don’t know.”
  • “Of course he saved you because you were sincere and he promised that if you asked him to come in, he would come in. So you are saved.”
  • And they walk out of the church after five minutes of counseling and they evangelist goes to Denny’s to eat, and the man is lost.
  • The man is lost.
  • An unbiblical invitation. If they ever doubt, if they ever doubt their salvation again, here we go again.
  • If they ever doubt their salvation, “Let’s go back to a point in time.
  • Was there ever a point in time in your life when you prayed and asked Jesus to come in?”
  • “Yes.”
  • “Were you sincere?”
  • “I think so.”
  • “That’s the devil bothering you.”
  • And if they live without growth even in the context of a church without growth in continued carnality, no fear.
  • We blame it on the lack of personal discipleship and we write it off as the doctrine of the carnal Christian.
  • The doctrine of the carnal Christian has destroyed more lives and sent more people to hell.”
  • -Paul Washer

  • So many times young people will come to me and they will say, you know, a young man will say, “I desire to marry this girl.”
  • And I will say, “Why?”
  • And he will say, “Well, I love to be with her and she is beautiful and when I am with her we feel so good and it just meets so many needs in my life and there is just when she is around, my life is so much more endearing.”
  • And I will always ask him this question, “Well, then, what you are telling me is you want to marry this girl because she meets all your selfish self centered needs and desires?”
  • The young man will always say, “No, that is not what I mean.”
  • And I’ll always say, “But that is what you said. You want to be with her because she is beautiful. Young man, what happens when she is no longer beautiful? What happens when someone more beautiful comes across your path?”
  • Or, “We can really talk and that is why we want to be together?”
  • What happens when you can’t really talk?
  • “We feel so good together.”
  • What happens when those feelings for a season are gone?
  • You see, your marriage must be based upon this one thing. God has called me to lay down my life for this woman. If she responds in kind praise the Lord. If she does not respond in kind, praise the Lord because I am not in this for me. And in a sense I am not
  • even in this for her. But I am in this for God.
  • The world will tell us that...that marriage is a 50-50 relationship. And then years ago Christians came along and said, “No. It is not a 50-50 relationship, it is 100%-100% relationship.”
  • I disagree with both. Marriage is 100%-0% relationship. You give 100% of everything you are to this woman even if she returns nothing of the sort back to you because you have been called of God to lay down your life for her.
