Born Again. Beyond the Obvious Rhetoric


Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

In most cases some words and phrases become statements of fashion without incorporating the real meaning and power beyond them. To begin with our very nature once born again is not a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Though this being the case that one should not fear we find that we can resemble nothing close to courageous and bold people. It is then no wonder that in the business, markets, societal standings amongst other things the people is found not to be associated with fearlessness but with other feeble traits. It is naturally important to balance love and fear but it is important to realize that love has no fear. If the light does not turn on then the people will follow a different type of angel of light. We should then not be surprised that certain practices are becoming accepted law.

Customs and traditions may seem like decent things to do but they normally are neither wise nor foolish. But now, after that you have known God, or rather are known of God, we tend to turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, where we desire again to be in bondage to certain customs and traditions? We observe days, and months, and times, and years but understand nothing of their significance. In some cases we spend more money celebrating death more than life events, and we make ourselves slaves to practices that make us poor and more ignorant. We respect meats and drinks as if they are holy or cursed yet we should eat whatever is sold in the meat market, asking no question for conscience’ sake; for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it. Have we forgotten Jesus said that do you not yet understand that whatever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out into the waste-bowl? If you are born again why continue to live in the rhetoric?

It is true that there are many philosophies and many prophets but why be fooled by any of them are we not commanded to test every spirit? There is much vanity but though we walk in the flesh there is power to cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Is it not obvious by now that darkness cannot marry the light, the two cannot co-exist? Perhaps we are living in the rhetoric of the being born again we do not notice. For how long can we be children requiring milk, is it not time to move to meat?

We must try to become mature and start thinking about more than just the basic things we were taught about Christ. We shouldn’t need to keep talking about why we ought to turn from deeds that bring death and why we ought to have faith in God. Heb 6:2 And we shouldn’t need to keep teaching about baptisms or about the laying on of hands or about people being raised from death and the future judgment. There is much cliché and rhetoric in the world but there should be no rhetoric in being born again. You are either born again or you are not, there is no lukewarm in the kingdom of God, for Jesus himself said that he will spit us out if we are lukewarm.
