John 3:3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
It is clear from this passage that one must be born again to be saved and to even see the kingdom of God. If he can be saved without being born again, then this passage is in error. In verse 5 Jesus said, “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Therefore, God must perform a spiritual work on a sinner in order for him to be saved (justified). From John 3 we can conclude the following:
1) Being born again (regeneration) is applied by God and men do not know from where it comes or where it goes.
2) One must be born again to see the kingdom of God.
3) One must be born again to be saved (justified)
Does anyone disagree?
Next we will look at the effects and power of regeneration.
