Every now and then a goof on social media or a minister of Satan from the sect and cult of Christianity will tell you to pray the sinner's prayer to get saved. It usually happens at the end of their videos or texts or misuse of Romans 10; and they would tell you the whole time, that salvation is not by works (which that is true);
But in the end, they tell you to pray. That is a work. And because you are ignorant that prayer is a work, you pray, and remain an unsaved child of Satan, except now you think you are saved, but you are not. This is called being deceived.
Prayer is a work. Have you never read?
Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
Epaphras was labouring in prayers.
You can scream it's not until you are blue in the face, but God says it is a work. Shall I believe God or you? Who are you?
You are saved by believing in Jesus, having faith in his blood, fully persuaded. And that is found in Romans 3:24-26. In fact Romans 1-4 is God's gospel tract if you will. So I suggest you go and read it from the King James Bible PCE!
