Simus, you seem to be a sincere and special person who believes in Jesus Christ personally, and tries to follow him. I don't want you to feel hurt or offended but I would like to explain why I think what you just said contradicts what it says in the Bible. No offense personally intended. It would seem to me that if i wasn't trying to keep the commandments I wouldn't care about Jesus. Jesus enables me to keep the commandments, and prayer makes me humble. Sharing my testimony makes me grow in faith, and loving my family and my neighbor makes me feel close to God. So if I'm living a crappy life what is there in it that will make me want to change enough to accept Jesus into my heart and as you say, invite Him to "become the Lord in my life"? Why would I invite Jesus for supper if I was going to serve him dog food? If I'm going to invite Jesus into my house, (myself), I want to make sure it is clean, or that I am working on it. Is there no logic in the Christian religion? I can't understand a sealed book. You seal the logic right out of the Bible when you say all we have to do to prepare for the great and terrible day of the Lord, is to invite him into our hearts. It's not good enough for me. How could a loving god look upon my struggles to repent as filthy rags? Surely he will accept my burnt offering and take it from there.

It is my opinion that the Bible teaches that Faith, Repentance, Baptism and following in Jesus footsteps is the path that leads to heaven. Jesus openly criticized the hypocrite, or the person who with word and ritual only, made it look like he was serving god.
