    Part of me wants to be saved, but another part doesn't.

    It's like I have the door open a little for Jesus but part of me doesn't want Him all the way in. I've got a pretty busy day so I'll elaborate later. But the part of me that wants to be saved thought I should start this post. :)

    "Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be." James 3:10
    We ought not have an opposing side, that is, a side opposed to God, but we do.

    Behold I stand at the door and knock
    Revelation 3:20


    Greetings @oneiroer

    It is the most important decision that you will ever make.

    I believe that Jesus is knocking at your hearts door right now
    Do not turn Him away

    Nothing this world can offer will ever compare to the love, joy and peace you will find in Jesus
    No-one but Jesus can offer you eternal security

    Put everything else off......but don't put Jesus off

    Praying for you
    Please make contact by pm if you would like to.

    To you is the word of salvation sent
    Acts 13:26
    I live yet not I, but Christ liveth in me
    Galatians 2:20

    Good replies given, all I can add is that God if faithful and true. If you seek Him with your whole heart, you shall meet Christ and be forever changed. But the Lord will never force His way into your life and change you unless "YOU" want that change to happen. I shall pray for you oneiroer.
    Do not look to dead things for life. Seek the Spirit while it may yet be found.

    Oneiroer,

    I have good news and bad news for you. You are going to live forever in either heaven with God or hell with the devil. While you are alive, it is your choice. After you die you will be resurrected by God and be judged. If during your life you have asked God to forgive your sins and accepted Jesus as the son of God who died for your sins and rose from the dead you will go to heaven. If you didn't , you won't go to heaven and you will be cast into the lake of fire in side the earth with the devil. I love you enough to tell you the truth. I hope to see you in heaven.

    Jude 1:17-23
    Jude 1

    17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
    18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
    19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
    20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
    21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
    22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
    23
    And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

    Thank you all. I went to a concert at my church tonight and the band had the audience basically raise their hands if they wanted to be saved for any reason. I raised my hand a bunch of times and they had those who raise their hand come on stage and say a prayer. I went on stage with the group and said the prayer! I am saved. I do not want to worry anymore with burdens and I am tired. I have come to Jesus and trust in Him. Thank you all again! :)

    Don't forget, its... repent and be baptized everyone of you... that is to be our first steps. Read at least a little of Gods word everyday, and pray/talk to God as often as you can, He really appreciates and loves you and wants you to stay in touch.

    Do not take this wrong but I must ask you; Did you just say the prayer or did you mean the prayer from your heart? Just repeating a prayer does not save you. You must realize your need and sincerely seek forgiveness. You must willingly make a determination and commitment.

    I only ask this because I have seen so many repeat a prayer and think everything is ok when it is not. Salvation is of the heart, not the head.
    Some get caught up in the emotion or excitement but after it wears off they are unchanged.

    this is not to offend friend let me start with some bible

    (Romans 10:16-17) "But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? {17} So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

    we see here faith is a gift from God given only when we hear the word of God...

    step one for a new believer even before baptism, should be (2 Corinthians 13:5) "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?"

    there are so many false teachings and false ideas pressed in todays world, im always a bit leery of a testimony of a prayer or asking jesus into your heart, ect.

    The gospel is very simple and thus mysterious to us, we as humans sometimes dont understand how it can be so easy and thus we add things to it and corrupt it. i will quote some scripture now and hope you will read it, understand it, and believe it, dont be afraid to examine yourself to see if you are in the faith, i have been a believer for some 6 years now and i still examine myself quite often.

    (Romans 10:13) "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

    this is how easy it is to be saved.

    (1 Timothy 3:16) "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."
    i call this the gospel in a nutshell you believe that Jesus was God in the flesh, died for your sin, rose from the dead defeating the power of sin, and will now be glorified for eternity in heaven.

    Dont put faith into a prayer or an emotional experience. Believe the gospel, and read his word. (Deuteronomy 4:29) "But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul."

    in love sir.

    I must admit I just said the words. But I really do want to start trusting Jesus and have Him in my life. I feel burdened and feel I need to come to Jesus. I feel He could be my best friend if I let Him.
