"Many claim to be christians,but only those who have been saved are."<quoted text>
We are born with a sin nature, you can see it in any small child, that thinks they are in trouble, and will lie to get out of it, yet they will usualy confess quickly, since they have not hardened themselves yet.
I believe God knows where all things are, but wants us to believe by faith.
I didn't set it up that way -He did, but remember many seen the tablets, just like those who seen the works Jesus did, but did not believe.
Jesus said we must be born again. He said this to a very "good " person, who was a religious ruler, but didn't "know " God.
Many claim to be christians,but only those who have been saved are.
Many polls that are taken ask people what religion they are, and from the choices they are given, they usualy say christian.
When a person is born again, it is a spiritual transformation -Not just saying a prayer, or joining a church, or filling out a card.
It is a true spiritual experience, that takes a sinful person, and makes them a child of God.
They have accepted the free gift from God, by faith.
The worse the person is, that larger the transfornation is.
I think most of the Christians on here are not "born again" so are they not "real" Christians?
