Ewen's question

Hi Ewen
You wrote, "

How do you believe you are born again?

This is a very fundamental and serious question. It's useful to ponder in what context this term is used and how we should interpret things in thiese days.

I believe Y'shua used it to communicate the central issue of people who follow God...their faith. We are to demonstrate and live in faith to be born again. Specifically faith in a person and in the one-off actions of that person.

Being born again (read John 3) is the term Y'shua used to teach us to trust Him as the only way to heaven, as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so he (Y'shua) would be lifted up on the cross. And that whoever puts their faith in that action of God would be born again.

John 3:16 is the most famous and oft-quoted text in the Bible. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son so that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

That sums up being born again Ewen and I hope this helps you and others.

All the best
