or she is born in sin. Oh no. The born again experience happens at a later date by the person being convicted of the Holy Spirit after hearing the Word of Truth which is the Gospel or the Holy Bible! The Holy Bible states in John 3:1-7,
"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 AGAIN 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."
In verse five Jesus says that except a man be born of "WATER" and of the "SPIRIT" he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. Now when JESUS refers to "WATER" He is referring to the Holy Bible, which is able to cleanse us spiritually through belief in the Gospel which is the Holy Bible or the Word of God and the message that Jesus gave in John 3:16 which states,
"FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM, SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE."
That is the message of the entire Holy Bible and the message of salvation in a nutshell and by the way what being "born again" is all about. Being "born again" is about believing what John 3:16 states. Being born again is believing on the "Son" who is Jesus. Believing that "Jesus is God" and that Jesus is the Saviour of the whole world. Believing that Jesus came to earth, was crucified and spilled His pure, precious and Holy BLOOD as "the" sacrifice for your sins, was buried and on the third day rose from that borrowed tomb, conquering sin, death, and Hell on your behalf, thereby purchasing your salvation. Now that is what is meant by being "born again"!
Also in verse six Jesus says that which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. As I said at the beginning of this question, when a person is born physically he or she is not born spiritually at the same time he or she is born physically. The born again experience happens at a latter date. Jesus says that which is born of the flesh is flesh. We are all born of the flesh at birth, and the born again experience takes place at a later date when that person is born of the Spirit (HOLY GHOST) since that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. At that time is when a person becomes a citizen of Heaven since our citizenship is in Heaven when we are born of the Spirit, the precious Holy Ghost!
The Holy Bible states in 1 John 5:11-12,
"AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON.
HE THAT HATH THE SON HATH LIFE: AND HE THAT HATH NOT THE SON OF GOD HATH NOT LIFE."
A person has the "SON OF GOD" through just believing, not doing or working or by good works or joining a church or church membership or by being a good moral person or signing the church register or by traditions or by rituals or by baptism or giving money or confessing your sins to a priest whether Catholic or otherwise or wearing a cross or anything else but only by just "BELIEVING". Now that is something that a little child can even do!
To believe on the Son who is Jesus and what Jesus has already done by His Holy Sacrifice on the
