“Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” John 3:7
Jesus told one of the most religious men of his day named Nicodemus that he must be BORN AGAIN (John 3:3). This being born again is generally known as the NEW BIRTH (John 3:1-8). It is the only doorway into the kingdom of God, the only escape from the wrath of God soon to come, the strait gate and the narrow way that leads to life which very few find (Matthew 7:13,14). The new birth is the only cure for man’s sinful nature and lusts. It is the only solution the sinner needs; the single dose therapy that can keep him out of hell; and whoever keeps this all-important truth from men is an enemy of their soul, and any preacher or author who corrupts the doctrine of the new birth is to be dreaded as a deadly cancer.

Some preach that the NEW BIRTH is water baptism, others say it is Holy Ghost baptism and speaking in tongues, and others say it is “making a decision for Jesus” and praying the sinner’s prayer. All of these man-made opinions mentioned fall short of what the bible calls the NEW BIRTH. Continue reading
