Getting called on the carpet, dressed down, or otherwise chewed out in a severe manner. Usually used in conjunction with "meetin'" (meeting)
He was late one too many times, so the old man dragged him in the office for a "come to jesus meetin'".
Used in the film "Flight of the Intruder" in the court-martial scene. To not necessarily use religion and tell the truth. Repentance, but without religious overtone.
from "Flight of the Imtruder":
"I hope you realize that now is the time to come to Jesus." Meaning that if the aircrew being court-martialed spilled their guts off the record before the proceeding started, they might stand a better chance of a favorable opinion. Could somewhat be compared to plea bargaining.
Command usually shouted from the pulpit at an evangelical Christian revival.
"Those who are sinners and want to be saved, Come to Jesus! He will save you, just Come to Jesus!"
v. To acquire Christianity as one's religion
"Yeah, Christina was such a sinner 'til she came to Jesus."
when a religious person realizes a non-religious (or religious) person is in need of God's love and help, they say this to tell them to come over to christianity (or to re-find God).
Also could be something said in the bed, if ya know what I mean ...
1. James, you suicide! Come to Jesus!
2. Oh, baby, come to Jesus, COME TO JESUS!
When a person masturbates in front of a picture of jesus.
"Where'd Billy go?"
"I just saw him walking into the bathroom with a joho book, guess he's gonna come to jesus."
