Top Excuses Why People Refuse Salvation

A. "I don't believe in God".
Answer

Please see our Proof God is Real article.

B. Pagans, wiccans, and satanists don't want to give up power.
Answer

Actually, they only think they have greater power than Christians. The actual power structure is as follows:

  1. God

  2. Saved Christians

Luke 10:19

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

John 14:12

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

1 Cor. 6:3

Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

  1. Good Arch-Angels such as Michael and Gabriel.

  2. Good Angels

  3. satan/lucifer

Luke 10:18

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

  1. fallen angels

Luke 10:17

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

  1. Unsaved humans and workers of iniquity.

Rev. 20:15

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

C. Not perfect enough to go to church yet or to be saved yet. (still doing drugs or whatever)
Answer

Mark 2:17

When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Jesus did not come to save the righteous. He came to save sinners. If we were already perfect, we would not need a Saviour. We need a saviour because we all have sinned. Christians are not perfect people. You very well know that. It is only through the power of The Holy Spirit that you can defeat sin and overcome your problems. If you wait until you become perfect before you go to church or before you submit to God, then you will never make it to the Kingdom of God. You should take a first step. David, Noah, Moses and Paul were not perfect men. They had sin in their lives! But their lifestyle was for God.

D. Don't want to stop having fun.
Answer

Amusement parks are not sin. Bowling, camping, skiing, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming and sports are not sin. You don't have to get drunk or do drugs to have fun.

E. Because of the bad examples of Christians, hypocrites.
Answer

You are forgetting of all the examples of unsaved people. Stealing, murders, rapes, etc. But does their example prevent you from being unsaved like they are? This is really a very poor cop-out. Christians are not perfect people. Just because Christians you know are not living 100% perfect or don't fit your belief of what a Christian should be, should not prevent you from becoming a true follower of Jesus Christ yourself.

F. Because Christians judge me. They think they are better than me.
Answer

Doesn't that statement mean that you are judging them? You have made a judgment against them. You are just as guilty as they are. A lot of time people assume someone is prideful when actually they are showing confidence or boldness. If that person truly is guilty of pride or judging you, then aren't they subject to God? Christians are not perfect people. They are trying to live right. They are trying to live a better life. That doesn't mean they won't make mistakes. It doesn't mean they won't have troubles or worries. A Christian life is not a easy road. But it sure is a road worth traveling!

Matt. 7:13-14

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate, for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
