3GT Episode 153: Asking Jesus into Your Heart?

Do you know what happened on October 12, 1988? Well, many things, but way up in the land of Garrison Keillor a little boy "asked Jesus into his heart" at an Awana meeting. He even has a certificate to prove it!

So the guys talk about this phrase so often used in evangelistic settings. Where does it come from? Does it have its origins in the Bible? What is the theology behind it? Are there any dangers in using the phrase? And if you’re not going to call people to ask Jesus into their hearts, what do you say?

Tune in to this latest episode of 3GT, join the discussion, and find out what that little boy did with that certificate!
