The most renown proponents of Lordship Salvation is Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron whom say that you must repent and make Jesus Lord as part of salvation


It is God who made Jesus Lord and Christ.

Act 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

We may simply confess this reality unto others.

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

A confession that shows itself true by our works.


2Ti 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with [him]: if we deny [him], he also will deny us:
2Ti 2:13 If we believe not, [yet] he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
Tts 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

Is Jesus Lord? If not God is a liar. Does one have to acknowledge Jesus' Lordship to be saved? If not God is a liar. Let God be true and every man a liar. Jesus is Lord over all and he gives eternal life to all who obey him according to Heb 5:9. Deny him his lordship and he shall deny you. The only ones who have a problem with this are they who do not love the truth. Why would you not want Jesus as your Lord? Because you can't continue on as a liar, thief, cheat and a con? Because you can't be a drunkard, homosexual or any other thing that is contrary to the truth of God? Let it be known this day that Jesus is Lord over all and is the light of the world. Receive the light and walk in the light. Purify your heart before him.

Of course Jesus is Lord and he has a name above all names. You missed what I was saying.


Missed? Or added unto? ;)

Firstly it is The Lord's kindness that leads us to repentance Rom 2 :3-4

Secondly, we need to have godly sorrow not worldly sorrow.. 2 Cor 7:10 For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted, but the sorrow of the world produces death.

The Lord Jesus becomes your Lord and Savior when we are saved.
