“Say this sinner’s prayer” is not the Gospel


Alan Ballou teaching.

“Just say this sinner’s prayer, and you will go to Heaven” is not the Gospel, by Alan Ballou.

Nowhere in the Bible are we instructed to go out and have a million people say a sinner’s prayer, and then promise them eternal life. Nope, that’s deception, and we have accepted that as truth for over one hundred years now.

A sinner’s prayer might get you saved, if human wisdom doesn’t suck the life out of the message beforehand (1 Corinthians 1:17), but the promised inheritance depends on the “righteousness of faith,” and not a sinner’s prayer. That requires preaching the Gospel.

Romans 4:13  For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. NKJV

What is reality, when the body is controlled by spirits?

What is reality, when the body is controlled by spirits? Are you doing what you are doing, or is it a spirit that is making you do whatever it is that you are involved in? Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? That is until you read the verses.

Ephesians 2:1-3 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. NKJV

According to verse 2 above, there is a spirit at work in the “sons of disobedience,” which is controlled by “the prince of the power of the air.” According to verse 3 above, that spirit is making those who are controlled by it, fulfill the desires of their flesh, and of their mind; their sinful nature. They are by nature, children of wrath.

That’s how the devil controls the world system. Check the following verse before you go away in disbelief.

1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. NKJV
