Excuses for Not getting Saved or Born Again
Just SOME of the excuses I’ve heard for NOT getting saved or not RECEIVING Jesus Christ:1. “I am not good enough to go to church yet or to be saved yet-still doing drugs or whatever)”
ANSWER: Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard [it], he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Jesus did not come to save the righteous. He came to save sinners. If we were already perfect, we would not need a Saviour. We need a saviour because we all have sinned. Christians are not perfect people. It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that you can defeat sin and overcome your problems. If you wait until you become good enough before you go to church or before you submit to GOD, then you will never make it to the Kingdom of GOD. You should take a first step. David, Noah, Moses and Paul were NOT perfect men. They had sin in their lives! But their lifestyle was for GOD.
2. “I don’t want to stop having fun.”
ANSWER: Amusement parks are not sin. Bowling, camping, skiing, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming and sports are NOT sin. You don’t have to get drunk or do drugs to have fun.
3: “I don’t want to get saved be cause of the bad examples of Christians, hypocrites.”
ANSWER: You are forgetting of all the examples of unsaved people. Stealing, murders, rapes, etc. But does their example prevent you from being unsaved like they are? This is really a very poor cop-out. Christians are not perfect people. Just because Christians you know are not living 100% perfect or doesn’t fit your belief of what a Christian should be, SHOULD NOT prevent you from becoming a true follower of Jesus Christ yourself.
4. “I would get saved, but I will do it later. How do you know you have a “later”? You have no promise of tomorrow, or even your next breath.”
ANSWER: “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14
The WORD says in Hebrews 3:16, “While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.”
