Read what I quoted if you want the detailed answer. Jesus explained it in those verses.
Throughout the scriptures, when a person truly gets saved they become a new creature in Christ. We were all born of the flesh, but upon getting saved we are now filled with the Holy Spirit which dwells inside of us. Hence we are born again.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Catholics say this happens when an infant is baptized!!!!!!!!! Go figga....

<quoted text>Are Catholics Born Again?
Catholics and Protestants agree that to be saved, you have to be born again. Jesus said so: "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).
When a Catholic says that he has been "born again," he refers to the transformation that God’s grace accomplished in him during baptism. Evangelical Protestants typically mean something quite different when they talk about being "born again."
The Names of the New Birth
Regeneration (being "born again") is the transformation from death to life that occurs in our souls when we first come to God and are justified. He washes us clean of our sins and gives us a new nature, breaking the power of sin over us so that we will no longer be its slaves, but its enemies, who must fight it as part of the Christian life (cf. Rom. 6:1–22; Eph. 6:11–17). To understand the biblical teaching of being born again, we must understand the terms it uses to refer to this event.
The term "born again" may not appear in the Bible. The Greek phrase often translated "born again" (gennatha anothen) occurs twice in the Bible—John 3:3 and 3:7—and there is a question of how it should be translated. The Greek word anothen sometimes can be translated "again," but in the New Testament, it most often means "from above." In the King James Version, the only two times it is translated "again" are in John 3:3 and 3:7; every other time it is given a different rendering.
Another term is "regeneration." When referring to something that occurs in the life of an individual believer, it only appears in Titus 3:5. In other passages, the new birth phenomenon is also described as receiving new life (Rom. 6:4), receiving the circumcision of the heart (Rom. 2:29; Col. 2:11–12), and becoming a "new creation" (2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 6:15).

Garbage.....

Mt 3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

Mr 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Ac 18:8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.

Infants cannot:
A.Confess their sins.
B.Cannot believe.
C.Cannot believe on the Lord.

No, it doesn't explain anything. YOU tell us what it shows. "Hence" we are born again just shows that you PRESUME this is the law.

Better to worry about your standing in the after life; you will die.
Repent or die in your sin to face eternal punishment. Doesn't appear too many are happy here now.
Yeah, I am really sure Jesus and GOD are about how you live this life.

That is the Whole thing about GOD is Life and Life more Abundantly.
Your "YOU are going to Die worry about the Life after this Life"
Is really demonic.

I have read a lot of your comments and I am going to have to go back to what I said at the Beginning of this thread.

What Divides Catholics and Protestants?

Protestants are Daughters of the Beast, and Catholics are the Beast.

That is what divides Protestants from Catholic.

One is the Beast of Revelations (that is Catholic) the other is a daughter of the Beast.

And when dealing with just Catholic and Protestants neither one of you Know GOD.

You are BOTH Evil.

I am pretty sure until like the last 10-20 years the Catholic Church was the Most Richest Organization upon the Earth.

The Oil Companies have Far surpassed the Vatican in the last 15 years or so.

ANd Remember
We have to hate any Country that Nationalizes their Oil and Spends the Money on Bringing Food, Work, Infrastructure, Education, Money, Etc. to their Populace are EVIL AGAINST CAPITALISM and must be HATED

HOW DARE THEY EXPLOIT those National Resources and Help the Infrastructure of their People?
They are Suppose to take a Bribe and Keep their People in Servitude.

How Dare they get Uppity against a Oil Company and think they could build Water pipes, and Roads, etc..

Catholics worship God and His Son, Jesus.
No Catholic worships the virgin Mary. She is, however, honored because she is the mother of the Son of God, Jesus.

The Catholic Church determined the Doctrine of Baptism; this was already in place before the Bible was put together.

Hi Nettiebelle,

I wouldn't word it exactly like that.

Mary is the mother of God, comma, God the Son. That identically same God the Son who died on the cross for the forgiveness of sin and the salvation of all mankind.

God bless you.

God determined the doctrine of Baptism. That's why every single baptism in the New Testament was full water immersion after a person got saved. NO BABY BAPTISMS!!!!! NO SPRINKLE BAPTISMS!!!!

1) Saved.
2) Baptized by full water immersion.

That's just bullshít, Romans. Full immersion baptism isn't described in the New Testament at all.

Do babies have souls?

The Greek word for baptize means Baptizo.

Baptizo:
1. to immerse, submerge;

2. to make whelmed (i.e. fully wet); used only (in the New Testament) of ceremonial ablution, especially (technically) of the ordinance of Christian baptism:

3.--Baptist, baptize, wash.
