Guys, Just a quick note. I noticed while preaching on the Lord's dealings with the penitent thief on the cross that all the thief said was "remember me when you come into your kingdom". That must have enveloped all that is needed for a "sinner's prayer". I think sometimes we want to make Paul's teaching in the Epistles some kind of format for doing or being in God's will and that they are some kind of sides of a box that must be stayed within. Sorry I don't have time to elaborate - I too am one who can only respond every now and then. I don't have the time to get involved in some of the forum debates the way I would like.
