What is “Born Again?

Open your mind and heart read the following and try to apply it to today’s modern priest, preachers, pastors
and
Evangelical Christians that take and do not give?
John 3:3
John Chapter 3
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.
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?
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.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit
In other words a person born again must always strive to be like Jesus Christ.
Do as he did not as you do!
THE REBIRTH OF THE “BORN AGAIN” MOVEMENT
Dr Paul Graunke
The election of a “born-again” Christian president has focused attention on the most significant movement among American Protestants.
It has also tempted Evangelicals to become involved with the election of candidates as well as the election to grace.
President Jimmy Carter unabashedly confesses that he is one.
So do Senator Mark O. Hatfield of Oregon and Congressman John B. Anderson of Illinois.

Charles Colson, former aide to Richard Nixon,
has written a best-selling autobiography recounting how he became one.
Eldridge Cleaver, onetime Black Panther leader, returned to the United States to face trial on assault charges as the result of an experience that made him one.
What these individuals
and perhaps 40 million more Americans and additional millions worldwide
profess to be are “born-again” or evangelical Christians.
The terms “born again” and “evangelical” are used interchangeably to describe these Christians because of the two salient aspects of their faith.
They share in common a highly subjective “born-again” experience, a turning point in their lives when they committed themselves to Christ.
And they believe in evangelism, the proclaiming of the redemptive message of Jesus’ life, teaching and atoning death
the “good news” (called euaggelion in the Greek New Testament and later dubbed gospel by the Anglo-Saxons).
Previous to the 1976 presidential election, evangelical Christianity had been growing quietly but impressively for over a decade
often at the expense of played out, mainline churches.
Indeed, some Evangelicals had been contending for several years that they represented the silent and overlooked majority of Protestants.
But not until the presidential campaign of Jimmy Carter did a “great awakening” occur among the media as they focused on Evangelicals and discovered their numbers and influence.

So!
What is
“Born Again?
Yes
You are correct
I am a lousy

Christian
However

I am learning how to follow our Lord!
In other words a person born again must always strive to be like Jesus Christ.

Do as he did not as you do!
President Jimmy Carter
Fake Born Again?
President Donald Trump
Fake Born Again
Every modern person calling themselves a “born-again Christian,”

While
Continuing on as the judge of others instead of preaching Jesus Christ!
