Jesus made a PROMISE in John 6:37, “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.” His integrity is at stake. He must keep His promise. Jesus cannot lie. What He said what He meant, and meant what He said!
Jesus promises in John 6:37 that anyone, that means ANYBODY, who comes to Him will not be turned away. Jesus didn't stipulate any exclusions. Jesus didn't say that He would not receive gays. Jesus didn't say that He would not receive women who've had abortions or their doctors. Jesus didn't say that He would not receive addicts, or divorced people or people who vote differently. Jesus didn't make a list of people who don't qualify to come to Him. Anyone may come to Jesus!
So then why do we make such lists?
Jesus didn't say that He'd only receive people who've made a commitment to Him, forsaken the world and departed from a past life of sin. Jesus didn't place any exclusions, limitations or restrictions on coming. Clearly, He said, “the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out”!
Therefore, if a person sincerely comes to Jesus to be saved, even if they have no intentions of changing their life, He will save them as He PROMISED. That they are coming to Jesus to be saved is clear evidence of some degree of repentance in their heart. A person comes to Christ because they have had “a change of mind,” which is Biblical repentance.
How dare anyone tell someone who comes for salvation that JESUS WILL CAST THEM AWAY.
How dare anyone tell someone who comes for salvation that JESUS WILL CAST THEM AWAY if they refuse to cease from personal sins. These are lies. Jesus PROMISED I will “certainly not cast away.”
Jesus said He will never, no not ever, never, cast anyone away who comes to Him by faith to be saved. Coming to Jesus is faith! Hence, Jesus will never, no not ever, reject anyone who comes to Him to be saved. Isn't that beautiful?
We must stop this lie that claims that Jesus casts away those who come to him to be saved, if they still have sins in their life that they aren't ready to give it up. I have a question for those that spew this lie. Have you given up all the sin in your life?
Who are we to judge if someone is saved or not just because they're not as perfect as we think they should be? Who are we to judge others because they sin differently than we do? There's no way you can tell how much gas is in a car's fuel tank by the sound of the horn. Likewise, you cannot tell if a person is saved or not by the manner of life which they live. Only by the direct testimony of their mouth concerning Jesus can we determine for certain if a person is saved or not.
Again, if a person sincerely comes to Jesus to be saved, even if they have no intentions of changing, Christ will save them as He PROMISED. That they are coming to Him to be saved is clear evidence of some degree of repentance in their heart.
The desire to not sin is a fruit of the Spirit which only comes AFTER a person is saved.
You get saved simply by letting God save you. The change in your heart is God's part and you may be sure He will get to work on that. Your part is to simply believe in Him. Whatever else is necessary Jesus takes care of when you trust in Him, or believe in Him.
Who are we to judge if a person is sincere. The thing to do is to take for granted that people are saved when they simply trust Jesus Christ for salvation.
To those of you who have been told or come to believe it’s too late for you:
The truth of God's Word is that the Lord PROMISED never to cast away, no not in any way, ANYONE who sincerely comes to Him to be saved.
No Way, Not Ever, Not Even Once, Nope, Nada Chance.
