"Accept Christ As Your Personal Savior"

source: Lane's Blog

"Do you imagine that the Gospel is magnified or God glorified by going to worldlings and telling them that they 'may be saved at this moment by simply accepting Christ as their personal Savior' while they are wedded to their idols and their hearts are still in love with sin? If I do so, I tell them a lie, pervert the Gospel, insult Christ, and turn the grace of God into lasciviousness."
- A.W. Pink

Dead men never give up their idols and always love sin in their hearts. Attempting to persuade dead men to give up their idols is doomed to failure. Giving up idols comes after the new birth.
