According to Some Roman Catholic Apologists, Being a Born Again Christian is Unbiblical

I am always amazed with how many people still continue to choose to follow the Pope blindly while condemning the blind followers of a pastor at the same time.  If they really claim to belong to the true church, do they know what Jesus told Nicodemus?  They are always speaking ill of born again Christians but do they really realize the Bible says you must be born again?

John 3:3-8 of the Good News Bible even says:

Jesus answered, "I am telling you the truth: no one can see the Kingdom of God without being born again."  "How can a grown man be born again?" Nicodemus asked. "He certainly cannot enter his mother's womb and be born a second time!"  "I am telling you the truth," replied Jesus, "that no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.  A person is born physically of human parents, but is born spiritually of the Spirit.  Do not be surprised because I tell you that you must all be born again.  The wind blows wherever it wishes; you hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. It is like that with everyone who is born of the Spirit."

I am so amazed at how some Roman Catholic apologists can memorize Scriptures and quote it faster than some born again Christians but they do not even know the full context and meaning of the Scriptures.  Some may appeal to the Greek but only for their convenience like they mistake "ekklesia kath'oles" in Acts 9:31 to justify their existence but do they know the full meaning and context of it?  The same goes when some Catholics tend to say that being a born again Christian means to be a heretic, a "burn again" Christian or insert any cuss words beginning with a "b" they can think of just to derail the born again Christianity movement.  I am amazed to how such people can be so arrogant to claim that faith is not enough and that to be guaranteed salvation, you must keep doing good works but many of them really live like they have a license to sin.  Worse. many of them keep quoting verses that tend to go against their favor because either they do not fully understand context or they are just too lazy to actually go beyond memorizing Scriptures.

What is so ironic is that even approved Roman Catholic translations tell them, "You must be born again."  Being born again is not about receiving the sacrament of baptism as an infant or receiving it through baptism as an adult or receiving it through "confirmation" by the Roman Catholic bishop.  They say that those former Roman Catholics who became born again Christians were just "misled" and "misinformed" by the lies of "burn again Christians".  Then again, they should tell that to the priests and nuns who left the Roman Catholic system after reading the Bible.  Those "born again Christians" who became Roman Catholics are what 1 John 2:19 says and I will quote again from the Good News Bible saying, "These people really did not belong to our fellowship, and that is why they left us; if they had belonged to our fellowship, they would have stayed with us.  But they left so that it might be clear that none of them really belonged to us."

To become a born again Christian is not just merely jumping from one denomination to another.  Anybody can join into a denomination of born again Christians but one is not truly born again.  To be born again of the Holy Spirit involves repentance of one's sinfulness.  What does it mean to repent of one's sins?  It does not mean forsaking your sin but rather it is a change of mind towards one's sins seeing them as offensive before God, that Jesus Christ is Lord of all and that there is nothing you can do to merit that salvation.  Today, many people confuse repentance of one's sinfulness to works salvation without realizing that Luke 24:47 says that repentance and remission of sins is part of the Gospel.  It does not mean just praying a sinner's prayer repeat after me evangelism without any proper conviction of sin.  Some do get saved in a sinner's prayer evangelism because the preaching was really convicting them of their sinfulness resulting to genuine repentance.  But the prayer alone does not save because many people say the sinner's prayer without true repentance leading to yet another false conversion.

When one reads the secret history of the Roman Catholic church or the secret history of the Jesuits, the war against born again Christians was never a pretty picture.  During the Dark Ages, the Roman Catholic church attacked pre-Reformation born again Christians.  When the Protestant Reformation was ignited launching the truth of Five Solas then more bloody persecutions came.  To call the whole incident a "misunderstanding" and a "misencounter" rather than a massacre has always been the common tactic.  Some Roman Catholic apologists even say, "Well they deserved it." which inadvertently has them confessing their hateful activities.  The murder of Calvinists on St. Bartholomew's Day, the murder of the Waldenses and all those activities done against born again Christians are something the Vatican does not want the public to know.  That is why any Roman Catholic priest or nun that leaves the system to become a born again Christian might as well be labeled as "merely misinformed to be mislead by those idiots called born again Christians".

After all, Roman Catholics just follow the Pope blindly.  When Pope Francis said all the unbiblical nonsense like that there is salvation outside of Christ, Jews can be saved without receiving Jesus, that atheists can enter Heaven if they do enough good and that having a personal relationship with Jesus is not biblical and a dangerous theology then I am not surprised some Roman Catholic apologists dare say that being a born again Christian is unbiblical.  It would be very important to pray for these people, love them, do good to them and the call of born again Christianity has been this in Romans 12:19-21 saying:

"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.  Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good."

It's Not Okay to Be Blindly Loyal to the Pope and His Army of Pharisees

Some rabid Roman Catholics keep sensationalizing the sins of fraud pastors (as if true born again Christians ever support them) while they keep hiding the sins of their priests or Pharisees. They also say that born again Christians are blindly loyal to the pastor never mind that they are blindly loyal to the Pope and his Pharisees. Blind loyalty towards a a prosperity gospel pastor, a so-called successor of a so-called last messenger or any quack preacher is no different than blind loyalty towards the Pope and his Pharisees. Worse, Roman Catholics believe that their Pharisees are instruments in saving their souls or that the Pope supposedly holds salvation in his hands never mind all the priestly scandals are telling them otherwise.

I could remember how often Bible reading is discouraged (and yet some of these rabid Roman Catholics tell me I should read the Bible and I can't get wrong with it) because it could drive me crazy from reading it. Some Roman Catholics I've met &quo…

The Error of Comparing Protestantism to New Atheism

The amazing blindness of Catholic.com is too amazing isn't it? I just read an article written yesterday which compares Protestantism to New Atheism. As much as the article is written as professionally as possible in contrast to some self-proclaimed apologists I've had a lot of useless arguments with but I'd like to give a friendly rebuke to the writer Karlo Broussard. It's my sincere prayer that Broussard will see the truth from the pages of the Scripture. 
The writer commits the fallacy of categorical error. He compares Sola Scriptura with Richard Dawkins' views on science. Here's one of the statements that really should be considered a categorical error:
Just as science is the only tool Dawkins and company are willing to use to arrive at knowledge of the natural truth, Protestants use only the Bible for determining what is revealed truth. And as many modern atheists reject anything that science cannot detect, so too do Protestants reject any teaching that is…

Don't Even Think About Legalizing Prostitution or Sex Trade

There's some people who seek to legalize prostitution. Some "rational" atheists are already talking about prostitution should be legalized so it could be controlled by the government. The claim that "studies" show that prohibition doesn't work is a lie straight from the pits of Hell. The Israelites were doing sin not because God forbade it but because they were disobedient and the rulers did nothing to prevent those sins. It's not surprising is that the same people who seek to legalize prostitution also want to legalize narcotics and hard liquor all in the name of "succeeding in the war against them".

The logic behind legalizing prostitution is that so the government can control them and tax them. But the problem with the quest to legalize prostitution is that it encourages the sin rather than discourage it. The problem is not the war against prostitution but ignoring Ecclesiastes 8:11. Do you know why the war against prostitution isn't wo…

The Quest For "Unlimited Human Progress" is Really Destroying the Environment

Every time I read from the news of nature's decline due to pollution, how food supply can soon drop anytime, how plant and animal deaths are massively happening I can't help but blame it on one factor: SIN. Yes, sin and most people think it's a fantasy word. It wasn't just a fantasy word that kicked Adam and Eve out of Eden and cursed the Earth with all its imperfections. Sin brought disease and destruction to mankind. Unfortunately, man is to blame for the wanton destruction of the environment all in the name of "unlimited human progress".

You can't divorce science from the Creator and that's a fact. Yet you have people who want to benefit from science without considering the Creator. Christian scientists were conservative because they were aware of one truth that science without ethics is meaningless. I'd like to expand it to say that studying creation without the Creator is absolutely stupid. People can claim that removing God is the key to &qu…

Politically Correct Organizations Need to Take the Beam Out of Their Own Eye First

Politically correct organizations meddling in worldwide affairs is not anything new. Whether it's the Vatican, the European Union, the United Nations, Human Rights Watch and any organization driven by political correctness (and not all of them are Illuminati or Jesuit ran but they're all still dupes of Satan and most of them don't even know it) it's always a problem that they are indeed meddling. While meddling isn't inherently wrong but here's some problems with politically correct organizations:
They only meddle when it's convenient for them as they are guilty of both selective outrage and selective justice.They meddle in the affairs of others without considering their own yard first.They meddle like as if they own the world.
It's stupid how political correctness demands Christians not to judge others but they end up failing to judge themselves. They are always taking "Judge not and you will not be judged." out of context without knowing wha…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

Why This Ministry DOES NOT Support the Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church is a so-called Baptist institution founded by Fred Phelps who is a lawyer and a theologian. Is it your average Baptist assembly or is this another of Satan's brain children? I would like to present my stand why this ministry does not support the Westboro Baptist Church and why as a Baptist, I do not support them either:
The founder Fred Phelps who serves as its pastor. I do find it disturbing he says that he supports sound doctrine of good Christian preachers of the past like John Calvin and Charles Haddon Spurgeon but his doctrine is not sound at all. His preaching is definitely not balanced. While I do appreciate him attacking the Great Whore of Revelation, apostasy, ecumenism, homosexuality, abortion, pornography and a lot of sins however he is no better than the Roman Catholic institution which he frequently criticizes. Although he claims to be a Calvinist and a Spurgeon fan, however many of those who are Calvinist preachers like Paul Washer, John …
