Myth 9. Accept Jesus into your heart and make Him Lord of your life.
This has been normal evangelical language for a long time now. And it is ridiculous. Try and find it in the Bible. Jesus does not need our acceptance – we need His, and what He accepts is brokenness, humility, submission and repentance. We don’t make Jesus Lord – He is Lord. Whether we bow our knee in repentance before Him, or have our kneecaps busted by His rod of iron. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
Truth 9. We need the acceptance of Jesus Christ. He is Lord whether we bow before Him in repentance and faith, or suffer for all eternity under His just wrath.
