If you heard someone say, “I’ve decided to become a Christian”
what would be your immediate thoughts?
Probably one would think good things about that decision.
However, can you decide to become a Christian?
The answer is an ABSOLUTE NO, NO, AND NO!
Have you testified in public, of how you became a Christian. Convincingly, with a sincere emotional outpouring, of how you decided to accept religion, to accept Jesus, to change your life, even being baptized.
New Testament Protestant Christian Bible
You have decided a good course of directions, with changes in your life. Turning away from that which seemed not beneficial to you, to the new life you have decided to live.
You want a lifestyle change, you decided to go to church, you decided to daily read your Bible, to stop doing certain activities with acquaintances, and refrain from going to certain places.
You decided to sever friendships, for in your opinion they aren’t socially acceptable. You become a church volunteer, going on mission trips, praying for other people etc.
Involved in community projects, and in local disasters. You give food, clothes, money to help the needy.
Maybe you even formed ministries and counseled people with their myriad of social and emotional problems. You have personal testimonies of your own addictions and emotional problems, and of how you overcame them.
Are you a person who is just a good ole boy! You try to get along with everyone, and don’t cause any problems to speak of?
If that describes you in some part then you’re not a Christian!
The obvious is that life is about YOU!
YOU cannot choose to be spiritually born again!
No matter what YOU hear someone say in a church service.
Hearing someone say, “if you want to become a Christian step forward.”
You cannot choose to become a Christian!
IT IS HUMANLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO WILL YOURSELF TO ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR!
IMPOSSIBLE TO FORCE YOURSELF TO LEAD A SPIRITUALLY BORN AGAIN LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN!
IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO CHOOSE TO HAVE GOD IN YOUR LIFE!
IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO BEGIN TO LEAD YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE.
MongNjua(Hmong) Missionary N. Oetker, in MongNjua Village North West Thailand on Myanmar/Burma border. Missionary Oetker and former wife and infant daughter were the first Christian Missionaries to trek into this Himalayan border MongNjua village. Most of the MongNjua hadn’t seen a white person before, and never heard of the man named “Jesus.” Today this village is Christian, do to many other Christians coming later, and continuing the original words planted. Our family built a small Christian Training Center in this village.
