Is “asking Jesus into your heart” a great heresy? Calvinist minister Paul Washer certainly does.
“I want you to know that the greatest heresy in the American evangelical and protestant church is that, if you pray and ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart, He will definitely come in,” Washer said in a 2016 sermon that has resurfaced in meme form.
I take a look at this phrase, what it means, why people use it, and why it is not a heresy. It is simply a kindhearted reminder that faith in Christ alone is what leads to salvation.

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” Revelation 3:20
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:9-10
“so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,” Ephesians 3:17
