What Does It Mean To Be Born Again by Izuu Erike

INTRODUCTION There are several denominational differences in the body of Christ and in the world in general which raise questions that often culminate into arguments and strife. One such question is: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE BORN AGAIN? In the body of Christ, the effect of this singular question is seen in the following areas: disunity, hatred, strife, jealousy and so on. Several of these outcomes also are no longer hidden but are manifest. Worse still, those who are supposed to be crusaders of peace and harmony have been indirectly used by the devil to propagate chaos in the body of Christ.

Suddenly, I heard a voicethat asked me “Do you see these things?”  Immediately, as if he knew I would want to know which things he was asking about, he gave me this scriptural passage(Matt 24:2): And Jesus said to them, ‘Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down’. At this point, I needed nobody to tell me that the voice was asking concerning the end of age. I took my gaze off the temple of Jerusalem cited in that scripture to this present world. I looked round the continent of Africa; I saw wars and rumors of war.
