Forgive me for my ignorance but I keep seeing this here all the time and I don’t have a clue what it means …
The American Christian “born again” thing is a huge scam.
Born again Christians repent from their Sinful Babylon religions and follow the Judean Holy Days. All of your typical “born again” Nimrod Christians are still in their Sinful Babylon ways. Yes, they might have stopped drinking or beating their wife and became a better person but it is not good works that saves a man. It is repenting from their Babylon false religion ways and no Nimrod born again has done that. You have to be truly born again in God´s ways not Nimrod´s
I offer you my answer in earnest, and without any disrespect for those who disagree. Here’s the simple truth: in His earthly life, Jesus Christ, the son of God, said that in order to go to heaven, we must be “born again.” Taken in context of His other teachings, it means that at some point in life, those who will go to heaven one day (a.k.a. those who are “saved”) realize that the secular “me first” lifestyle is wrong, and contrary to Jesus teachings, as is the worship of anyone other than the Trinity of the Bible (God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit). When we give up sinful ways (those against Biblical teachings) it’s as if the person that constantly lived in those ways “died” spiritually. In acknowledging our sin and asking God’s forgiveness, we are born into a new life of Christianity, thus we’re “born again.” It doesn’t mean we don’t sin, it means that we try to live a life that honors Christ, and that we ask for and accept his sacrifice as our forgiveness for sin.
Being “born again” means to be baptised. Your relationship with Jesus is how much time you spend with Him. Keep Jesus in your life at all times. Pray the Rosary which is praying the Gospel. Which will strengthen your relationship with Jesus
John 3:3,5 – Jesus says, “Truly, truly, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” When Jesus said “water and the Spirit,” He was referring to baptism (which requires the use of water, and the work of the Spirit).
is done FOR the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38)
is done to SAVE us (1Peter 3:21, Acts 2:40, Mark 16:16)
Is done to WASH AWAY OUR SINS (Acts 22:16)
is done to be REBORN to new life (John 3:5, Romans 6:3-6)
is done to CLOTHE ourselves with Christ (Gal 3:26-27)
is done so that GOD will RESURRECT us from death (Colossians 2:12, Romans 6:3-6)
is done as a REQUIRMENT to enter heaven (John 3:5, Mark 16:16)
is done to put us INTO CHRIST (Romans 6:3-6, Galatians 3:26-27, 1Corinthians 12:13)
Peter explained what happens at baptism when he said, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38). But he did not restrict this teaching to adults. He added, “For the promise is to you and to your children and to all that are far off, every one whom the Lord our God calls to him” (2:39). We also read: “Rise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on his name” (Acts 22:16). These commands are universal, not restricted to adults. Further, these commands make clear the necessary connection between baptism and salvation, a
connection explicitly stated in 1 Peter 3:21: “Baptism . . . now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a clear conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
It is a mis-translation that should read “You must be born from above”.
A good example of this is in the Book of Jude. The Angelic beings who
bypassed being born of woman into the flesh but who instead defied God and came to Earth and seduced women instead of being born of
woman. You must be born from above means that you must have
your soul and spirit conceived of God thru the womb of woman to come
to the Earth in this Age. Before this flesh age, they could come here
but after man was made flesh, it was taboo. Those Angels are held
for death at the 7th trump when the true Christ returns and they have
no possibility of redemption.
When you hear people saying “are you born again”? What they mean
is are you a Believer. But as I have stated here, it really means more
It means that you are water Baptized and have decided to accept the christian faith….thus you are no longer of the world but of the spirit of Christ….
Also when you are quoting something in written language it should be:
What does “Born Again Christian” mean?
No offense……hope i helped.
Jesus said that in order to go to heaven,one has to have a new birth.John chapter three best explains this new birth.When anyone trusts Jesus Christ as their Savior,his Spirit will indwell your heart.You will become a new creature in Christ.
When people label themselves that …that’s a big fundie alert. Generally it means that they are brainwashed sheep who believe that they and other members of their particular herd are the only ones worthy of salvation and are intolerant of anyone who is different. They also believe that however they interpret the Bible is correct and that science is bad. They think they speak for G-d, who they believe is a vengeful and angry sadist.
It means to ask Jesus into your heart and to forgive your “sins”. Only fundies subsrcibe to such nonsense. Most Christians do not believe in the “saved” ideology.
Being “born-again” of the Holy Spirit, which is essential for salvation. See John chapter 3.
Hello Dear Heart, Join an Old Man as a Child of God, a Born Again Christian,
All “christians”, “of”, subject to, ‘religions”, which God hates, are “of”, subject to, Satan. The Old Devil. These are the “ism” “christians” and other pagans such as Mormon-ism, Catholic-ism, Jehovah Witness-ism, Zion-ism, Social-ism, Juda-ism, Commun-ism, Talmud-ism, [Jew of Judaism bible] Hindu-ism, Buhda-ism, Secular-ism, Liberal-ism, human-ism, etc. Ops! Let’s not forget Affirmative Action-ism, a bad “religion” of the “foolish”, sinners, looking for a free ride. Mostly democracts. Only the Born Again Christian is a Son, Child of God, and “of”, subject to, the Perfect Religion, synonomous to the Father, God. In Book of St. James. One must accept Jesus as his Lord, Savior, and Redeemer, from all sin and evil living. The B-A Christian can claim the blessings bought and paid for with Jesus’ blood, laying at the foot of the Old Rugged Cross at Calvary. John 3:16, “who-so-ever beleiveth, shall not parish but have every lasting [eternal life with Jesus/God] Life ” with the Master. When one accepts Jesus, as Lord, then he is connected to God. Forever! Then, when one has God’s ear, through His Son, you will repent for all your bad stuff. That includes the ones Momma didn’t catch you at and put a board on your butt. As you can see, it is easy to become a Born-Again-Christian, “in the image” of our Lord Jesus. He loved you, me, the world so much that He suffered and died, shed His blood, for all men on the Cross at Calvary.. You must also beleive that He died on the cross and was resurrected in 3 days, and returned to His Father in Heaven, where only the Born-Again Christian will spend eternity. Any other “christian”, pagan, cultist, atheist, none beleivers, will spend eternity on Satan’s big BBQ Pit. That’s in hell. No ice cubes! And, I tell you! Texas don’t have a BBQ Pit as big as Satan’s. All, none, B-A Christians are “sons of the devil”.
….And, the walk with Christ can be a bit bothersome, even painful, especially when you have to give up most of your “FUN’, for ” Joy,” in the Love of Jesus in your daily life. Being a Christian has it’s advantages. Christians don’t waste their time hanging out at the Mall googling nasty old boyz. They don’t waste their money on Pot, Cigs, wine, beer and bad women. And, this way, you have a few dollars to share with God and the church. And, still have plenty left over. But, you have to get that boy freind saved, straighten out, or trash him. But, it is pretty good being a B-A Christian who spends a short time on earth fighting the devil every day, and then forever and ever spending Eternity in Heaven as a “king”, “god”, preist”, Son of God, a “joint heir ” to the Throne of God, and a Brother to the First Son of God, Jesus, the King of Kings, the Alfa and Omega, the Prince of Peace. And, since you will be ” in His image “, you will be all of these exciting things too. Just think. A Child of Royality, Son of God, and Brother to the King. A Prince. Plus, at the End of the Evil world, the New World Order, you will return, after being raptured into the heaven unexpectedly, with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords to do battle agasinst the Anti-Christ, the devil in the flesh of a man, as God was in the flesh of a Man called Jesus. We , the Elect, Saints, Born Again Christians, will come to earth with Jesus to put an end to all the evil in the world, defeat Satan, the anti-christ, and all the none-born-again “christians”, atheist, cultist, gnostics, and pagans. This is the Battle of Armageddon, and you, a B-A Christian, I ,and the rest of the Christians will pertisapate in the destruction of all evil in the world and the anti-Christ. Jesus will bring in a new city of Jerusalem, 1500 square miles, like a “green jewell, “out of the heavens”, , where He, you and I shall live with Him eternally….. Satan, the devil, will be chained up for one thousand years. Anddddddddddd,,,you can read the rest of the story yourself.
Ask Jesus to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior. He is waiting to purify your Spirit and turn you over to Father God who will always love you as He is your Father and , you, His Child. That is, if you let Him by accepting Jesus as your King .Come on in. The Glory of God is wonderful!
I hope to meet you in Heaven some day. It would be great to have you as a Brother in Christ instead of an unsaved enemy.
maybe as a grandchild of this cranky old man who loves Jesus.
Jesus is Lord,
