Is The Sinner’s Prayer Biblical?


Reader is the "Sinner's Prayer" a biblical concept? Is it biblical to teach that a person is saved as soon as he verbally confesses a belief in Christ?  Does it make you a born-again Christian? There are some that teach people How to pray the sinner's prayer. It is taught as a prayer that you pray in order for you to be saved., all that you have to do is recite it and you'll be a born again Christian.



 It is not biblical to give someone assurance of salvation based on reciting a prayer - on simply saying the words. Salvation is the work of God and the manifestation of that work is sometimes seen in people publicly confessing, even publicly praying to receive Christ as Savior.

 A person is not saved "because he prayed a prayer". Faith, assurance, and hope should never be placed in the prayer. Instead, faith, assurance, and hope should be placed in Christ. This is what the Bible says. Mark 1:15, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, "Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you-unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."

  1. I wouldn't say it's Un-Biblical, but we may be giving it more credit then it deserves.

    The entire notion that we have to pray a certain prayer to give credence to our salvation should have been disproved with the thief on the cross (Luke 23:40-43)

    The thief didn't
    Quote a prayer,
    Pay tithes,
    Walk to the altar,
    Join a church,
    Or
    serve in a ministry.

    He just confessed his sin, and acknowledged Jesus.
    And now he is in Paradise.

  3. Miss Ann,

    The Sinner's Prayer is unbiblical.

    Its origin is fuzzy, but it was brought to prominence by Televangelists like Graham.

  4. OK. Let's talk about the elephant in the room here. There are only a few folks posting (The LORD is My Shepherd, Cop, and LADY large Cap Font). I wonder if its because of the hostess controlling tactics to delete viable posts at her own leisure.

    1. Anonymous I'm having some serious issues with malware problems which is attacking my blog traffic by causing it to be redirected away from the blog. I have scrubbed my computer twice and the problem is still there. I really don't know what to do to fix the problem other than a professional, and right now I can't afford that.
