Anyway, he left me a comment on my post "Defending the gospel: No confession required." In it he says that we must do works for salvation, Christ did not do all of the work for us, according to him. Now he has written his own post on the "sinners prayer". Here it is below in red font.
"SINNER'S PRAYER" by steve finnell
Now let's consider the error of this teaching by Mr. Finnell. "There are those who advance the position that, by saying, the Sinner's Prayer your sins will be forgiven and you will be added to the Lord's church. The question remains, can saying a prayer save anyone? "
 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;
 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
When most people refer to calling upon the name of the Lord for salvation, they are not talking about uttering words that will magically grant salvation if you say it just right. When people say "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved", they are referring to calling upon God from the heart as we saw in Acts 10 and 15.
We are not appointed unto God's wrath on the Jews (Rom. 5:9, 1 Thes. 1:10, 1 Thes. 5:9) and we have a rapture that was a mystery committed to Paul (1 Cor. 15:51, 1 Thes. 4:15). Therefore the confession before men that we see in Matthew 10:32 is in a different dispensational setting with a different gospel--that has no effect on this age we are living in now.
So Mr. Finnell has a "straw man argument" when he asks the question, "Can prayer save anyone"...because prayer is not what we believe saves someone and it is not how we receive Christ. We receive Christ by believing, not by praying. John 1:11-13 "He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
