The Wickedness Of The Invitation Song, "I Surrender All"

Acts 16:29-31, Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

The Philippian jailer in Rome wanted to know how to be saved. He came in trembling and asked Paul and Silas, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Paul and Silas plainly answered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” They didn't tell the man to “surrender all to Jesus.” No, they simply told the man to “

Throughout my entire life, in nearly every Baptist church that I have ever attended, they sang the popular hymn, “I Surrender All,” during the invitation time. That is as wicked as can be! Dear reader, a lost sinner does not need to surrender anything to be saved, they simply need to receive God's free gift of forgiveness of sins and eternal life, taking it by placing their childlike faith in Jesus as their personal Savior. Just take God at His promise, as recorded in the inspired Word of God, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16b).

The Hymn “I Surrender All” Should NEVER
Be Used As An Invitation Song For The Lost

Dear reader, I encourage you to start thinking objectively, if you don't already. That is, learn to question everything! This is 100% biblical. 1st John 4:1, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” The Bible says not to blindly give your mind over to everything you hear, lest you be deceived by the Devil. Learn to think objectively!

That is what I wrong with Pensacola Christian College (PCC). Since they refuse to stand against anything, they have fallen for hellbound infidels like Ken Ham, and the Calvinist Bob Jones University (BJU) cult. BJU is leading the way in using, selling and promoting the Devil's perverted Bibles.

No, we don't have to “surrender all” to go to Heaven, we simply need to BELIEVE the 'Good News' (Gospel) about Jesus who died on a cross for our sins, was buried and then three days later He bodily resurrected from the dead. ...
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
That is how you go to Heaven.

In his helpful book titled, “I Never Knew You, by Michael P. Bowen, he writes:
Here is the gospel: God says that we are sinners and that no amount of good works or behavioral changes on our part could ever make us holy enough to enter heaven. God sent His Son to pay for all of our sins. Jesus paid for our crimes by dying on the cross for us all. His dead body was buried in a grave. On the third day, Jesus arose from the dead. 
The instant you believe this, He knows it and He saves you. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47). The free gift is based solely upon your trust in what Jesus did for you and has nothing at all to do with what you do for Him. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

That's it! That is the truth. Ladies and gentlemen, we've got a bunch of false prophets—lying pastors today like John MacArthur, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Steve Pettit, Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, John Piper, Franklin Graham, Sam Horn and Chuck Phelps—who are going to Hell themselves, and are tragically taking thousands of victims with them to Hell, because they all preach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation!

Dr. Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) said it well...
“I maintain that anything short of truth is a lie. But I also maintain that anything beyond truth is a lie. If you tell a man he can be saved, without believing on Christ, you've come short of the truth; but if you go beyond the truth and tell a man he's saved by believing plus being baptized, plus keeping the Ten Commandments, plus enduring to the end, you've gone beyond truth. I say we ought to stick with what the Bible says, even if it doesn't coincide with what we've always thought it meant.” —Dr. Curtis Hutson, “The Determining Factor In Salvation
The song, “I Surrender All” is 100% blatant heresy as regards salvation!!! Jesus sacrificed ALL for you and me, and all of humanity, so that God could freely offer us eternal life as a gift. Getting saved is NOT a trade or an exchange, it is a free gift if you want it. All you have to do is simply BELIEVE that Jesus did it all for you. Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do.
