This is the first in a series of articles on the Grace To You blog dealing with Christian cliches. This one c9nfronts the cliche of 'asking Jesus into your heart'. As usual, this is well-written and I don't have much to add.
The last paragraph really gets to the heart of the matter regarding this first cliche:
"Rather than asking sinners to accept Christ we should call them to plead for His acceptance. Rather than telling sinners to “make Jesus Lord” we should call them to submit to His lordship. And instead of calling sinners to a saving altar, we should entrust them to a sovereign Savior."
There are several more articles and I'll post links to those as well.
Thanks and God bless.
