It is serious, many people are not Christians, who claim to be Christian. If you have not been born again, then you seriously are not a Christian.

You are allowed to lie on behalf of satan.

You must be born again and you are not.

Funny thing, God has had me pray for Liz, he claims her, Native, IseeJesus and yellodog, all are Christians, but not you. You are just lost. Of course, God has you pray for me, you need to give the 10,000 angels strength whom God have given charge over me, because I am a Christian.

So, here is your chance, maybe God will let you in.

What Does It Mean To Be Born Again?

This term first appears in the Bible in John chapter three...

"There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of 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. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again" (John 3:1-7).

To understand this Biblical term, it is necessary to understand that there are TWO BIRTHS. The "first" birth is the PHYSICAL BIRTH when you were born into this world from your mother and father. When the Bible speaks of being "born of water," it is speaking about the physical birth (NOT baptism). The "second" birth is a SPIRITUAL BIRTH, which means to be born of the "Spirit" (God's Holy Spirit). Why does a person need to be born spiritually? What is a "spiritual" birth?

The Bible teaches that man is created in the image of God. God manifests Himself to mankind in the Persons of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Likewise, mankind is composed of a body, soul, and spirit. Our body is the "tent" you could say of the soul and spirit (the body is a temporary dwelling place). Our soul is composed of the heart (to feel), the mind (to think), and the will (to decide).

Our spirit is dead in sin when we are born; that is, we are born void of God. No person is ever born with God. The only exception is the Lord Jesus Christ Who came as God in the flesh (1st Timothy 3:16). Our spirit is dead in trespasses and sin the Bible says...

YOUR SOUL IS DEAD, BECAUSE YOU ARE DEAD TO CHRIST, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.

It is clear that the people who use the thou shall not judge verse are evil and they are spawned from the anti-Christ, they do it to hide their own sin.

It is like if a person says "Murder is a sin", these people, Nettie and Seriously, will pop in and say thou shall not judge. For instance, they will tell people that after James Holmes is convicted, that we are judging him if we say that murdering 12 people was a bad thing. Seriously neither condones or condemns sins, so she leaves the sin option open for her.

Provocative Bible Verses: Judge Not Lest You Be Judged
Posted: April 6, 2009 in forgiveness, loving your neighbor, Uncategorized
Tags: hypocrisy, judge not, judging others, log in your own eye, Matthew 7, Matthew 7:1, Sin
113

It may be the most often quoted and yet most misunderstood verse in the whole Bible. People who have never even cracked open a Bible have heard and quoted this verse.“Do not judge so that you will not be judged” Matthew 7:1

Usually that verse is used like a hammer to immediately stop any discussion about the rightness or wrongness of a persons behavior. Almost invariably if someone claims that a certain action or behavior is wrong, someone will say,“But Jesus said we are not to judge anyone”. The clear implication is that we can never say if some behavior is sin or not because we are not to judge. Sometimes these words are shouted out in anger and rage,“You can’t judge me!”.

What is possibly more amazing than the fact that so many people quote this verse and the concept of not judging, is that so many people could get the real meaning so completely wrong. This is especially true since the context makes it clear what Jesus meant by these words. When Jesus said that we should not judge unless we be judged also, he was not saying that we are to never judge if behavior is sin or not. What he was doing was giving us a caution to make sure that we are willing to be judged by the same standard of judgment. This verse is not a warning against judging an action. It is a warning against self deception and hypocrisy.

Matthew 7 is far from the only place in the Bible about judging others.

Luke 6:37
"Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;
Colossians 3:13
bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
James 4:11-12
Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?

Galatians 5:14
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

All nonsense . I am a born again atheist as I was born one, raised as a Christian and am now an atheist again.

Christians are supposed to judge. Satan and his followers love to twist the "judge not" scripture to keep people enslaved in their sin-infested perverted lifestyles.

Thank God for the REAL Christians that aren't afraid to speak out against sin. If the Word of God says that something is wrong, then it's wrong!

Jesus taught that we are to "Judge Righteous Judgment".(John 7:24)

THIS explains what Christians are supposed to do.

2 peter 1:1-9
To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

Before repentance Believers become aware what they must do to become Christians. Once Christians MOST know fine what to do, for they have repented and baptized, thus obtaining 'LIKE PRECIOUS FAITH'.

All persons whom therefore believe Jesus, having FAITH, are saved by Faith (through faith you are saved) and thus have become Christians and Holy.

To become a Christian we must do what Jesus has done, what the Apostles have done and what all Christians in the days of Jesus and after Jesus' death have done: repent and baptize in Jesus' name.

BORN AGAIN = Baptism, washing away sin and making the new person.

God knows what He is doing when He commands us to behave a certain way, and I will not arbitrarily decide to overrule God's commandments with my own wishes simply because His commandments may be difficult to obey.

God bless you and yours.

1 Corinthians 5:9-13 NIV

9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10 not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. 11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[c] but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside.“Expel the wicked person from among you.”
