Paul Washer Quote :

"In modern day evangelism, this precious doctrine [of regeneration] has been reduced to nothing more than a human decision to raise one's hand, walk an aisle, or pray a 'sinner's prayer.' As a result, the majority of Americans [and in the UK] believe that they've been 'born again' even though their thoughts, words, and deeds are a continual contradiction to the nature and will of God."
~Paul Washer

Great quote...there must be evidence God has done a supernatural work in the sinner, and continues to work until we go home. Sadly, when this is mentioned, most confuse it with legalism. To be born again is 1. not possible by man 2. not understand by most
There are multitudes of men who claim to be pastors/preachers that will be held accountable for the man-made methods they concocted to coerce the unregenerate and then popishly declare them saved. I am guessing there will be more 'religious' people in hell than there will be atheists!

I'll try to quote Eph. 2:8-9: For by walking an aisle or raising a hand are ye saved, through saying the right prayer, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of the preacher. Not of works (except for the works of walking an aisle, raising a hand, or saying a formulaic prayer) lest any man should boast.

Sometimes, imagining what the Scripture would have to say to match what people are teaching helps highlights the errors.
