Book Description

“If there were a Guinness Book of World Records entry for ‘amount of times having prayed the sinner’s prayer,’ I’m pretty sure I’d be a top contender,” says pastor and author J. D. Greear. He struggled for many years to gain an assurance of salvation and eventually learned he was not alone. “Lack of assurance” is epidemic among evangelical Christians.

In Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart, J. D. shows that faulty ways of present- ing the gospel are a leading source of the confusion. Our presentations may not be heretical, but they are sometimes misleading. The idea of “asking Jesus into your heart” or “giving your life to Jesus” often gives false assurance to those who are not saved—and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality.

Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance, showing that salvation is a posture we take to the promise of God in Christ, a posture that begins at a certain point and is maintained for the rest of our lives. He also answers the tough questions about assurance: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation?

Such issues are handled with respect to the theological rigors they require, but Greear never loses his pastoral sensitivity or a communication technique that makes this message teachable to a wide audience from teens to adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suitable for anyone interested in salvation 15 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the title. These phrases are a major part of evangelical preaching, and are a major reason why there are many doubting Christians and false professors. But I don't just love the title, I love the book. This is a great read for Christians who are doubting and for unbelievers who are seeking. It is wonderfully clear, showing that assurance is not to be found in going back to an act in the past, but by looking at one's attitude in the present - I know I'm saved because I am depending on Christ, not because I prayed a prayer at the age of 5 1/2. This will bring assurance to those who have no cause to doubt, and it will bring awakening to those who have every cause to doubt.
(Why not five stars? I think how he deals with Rom.11:22; Jude 20-21; the warnings in Hebrews; Jn.15:6 needs improvement. Some of those passages aren't salvation verses, and the warnings in Hebrews need to be read in the very particular Jewish context in which they were given.)

5.0 out of 5 stars a real blessing in times of struggle - praise God 10 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A wonderfully honest and reassuring book. Directly addresses the way I felt when I thought my faith was weak at best or at worst non-existent. Given my role with Christians Against Poverty it came as a real inspiration and has resourced me for the work ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed Assurance 22 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book to read for Christians who are unsure of their present salvation status due to own personal life experiences or whatever. From time to time we all stumble and fall and, sometimes, to our shame, "blow it big time"..... Don't we? If we're honest! And then the doubts!! And then the shame!!!

You will be uplifted by reading this book. It is very scriptural and very readable. If you are concerned and you are looking to Jesus and resting your hope on Him, and know it in your heart, you are saved. Read this book and see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading to give surety & comfort 30 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've often wondered if I could be a Christian, was my conversion real or had I tricked myself? This book shows that I'm not alone in thinking like this, the author admitting his own experiences.

I wish that I had read this book years ago, and certainly I can see me going back to it to refresh its teaching in my heart. If I had to trust in myself for salvation then I wouldn't make it past a week - but God in Jesus has won for me a salvation that is infinitely more solid than my best efforts.
Do read this book - it has given me great comfort & joy

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Certain You Are Saved ! 15 Dec. 2014
By StanH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read most of the book but enough to be sure the Writer is a sound Christian pastor/teacher. There is a lot of confusion out there for those seeking sound advice about what's involved in being Christian and in a real relationship with Jesus but this is good advice. Though this is an American presentation don't be put off by that - once I'd got past the first few pages I was very impressed with his sound teaching and in particular they ways he comes up with to illustrate truths and spiritual principles.
