“I can’t be ‘born again,’ I’m Catholic!” Those words tore through my heart as I heard a young woman speak them. “That’s what my father told me,” she said. How unfortunate for those caught in any type of denominational hell in total ignorance of the Scriptures. It doesn’t matter if you were born into a family where everyone is Presbyterian, Catholic, or any other denomination of Christianity. Jesus is the “CHRIST” they ALL look to! The Bible clearly says that anyone who is not “born again,” (meaning that they acknowledge their sinfulness and accept Jesus as their Lord), will NEVER see the kingdom of heaven! That means Catholic, Baptist, or otherwise. My answer to my young friend is one I’ve given five hundred times if I’ve given it once! “There is not a true Christian in the world who’s not a ‘born again’ Christian.” Anything else would be illegitimate.
“In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.'” John 3:3
