Your thread does not complete the Born again process..please watch the video then we can discuss
Born again is not a process. Born again is an event that takes place in an instant. We are changed by God from dead in sin to alive in Christ.

Sanctification is a life long process of becoming Christ-like and being used as a testimony of what Christ has accomplished in your redemption.

Thank you for your response. :) Blessings.
I wonder who it was that hung around for three years to see when a sleeping snail woke up. Also how many Polar Bears were
checked. It could be a coincidence that those who were happened to be left handed. I wouldn't like to shake hands with one.

That's probably why the header on the site they're linked to , in that section, is labeled, Makes Ya Go Hmmm. ;) As in, hmmmm, that sounds fishy.
Which sounds good to the lefty polar bears. :p

Holy Spirit baptism is the new birth. Titus 3:5 Water baptism cannot save. Ephesians speaks of the quickening by the Holy Spirit.

what does it mean by Born of water?
"born of water" is = to "born of flesh"....


3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

(Jesus is using physical birth as an earthly example to help the spiritually blind nicodemus see His point)

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

(again Nicodemus is unable to understand this spiritual lesson even with an earthly example of birth so he uses his earthly reasoning to question Jesus about being born of flesh two times)

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

(still speaking of brith and trying to relate the two.... born of water = anatomical fluid =born of flesh and born of the Spirit = when God makes His children new)

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

(again further explaining the two births.... born of flesh/born of water = natural birth Spirit = born of God)


7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again......

Jesus said..You MUST be born again..
jesus is talking about FUTURE..not the present situation..
MUST be..
Like the Son must be lifted up
Christ must suffer
The law must be fulfilled.

He is not talking of present situation of man...If you have 42 minutes..watch the video...
