Question Concerning Being Born Again


The following is an email I received.I believe that there are many others with the same question but who will never email or ask anyone.

Sent: Wed, 27 Aug
Subject: I would like more information

Hello:
I would appreciate more detailed information on what a born again
Christian means, and just how this is a religion, and what source of information this is based on- maybe you will think this rather crude, however I would appreciate more details about this
and I thank you in advance---- (name withheld)

My reply.
Dear *******,
I don't consider your questions crude. They are questions that are asked - or wondered about- by many people. Myself included, not very long ago.
My source of information is the Bible, the true word of God. I know that the Bible is the true work of God from studying it and because the Holy Spirit has confirmed it to me.

Born again Christian:
We are considered 'dead' in sin because of our disobedience to God's commands- not able to enter into the Kindom of God because of our sinful nature. When we come to a point that we want to change the habits of a lifetime and we admit that the way we live and think is wrong, we make the choice to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. His sacrifice on the cross was the price for our sin. He rose from the grave to prove His power over death and sin. We ask Him into our heart and when we truly accept Him and believe in Him, the Holy Spirit makes His home in us.
We are given a new life. Created in us are new emotions, a new attitude of mind, a new power of mind -- a new person. The Holy Spirit guides us into right living. I consider belief in these facts and living according to them a religion.

(Being born physically makes you physically alive and places you in your parent's family. Being born of God makes you spiritually alive and puts you in God's family. Being in God's family is eternal life.)

Some of the verses in the Bible that deal with this are:
John 3:16, John 1:12-13, 1 John 3:9, Romans 7:4
