The social networking market is huge. The biggest social networking site right now is facebook. It is free, easy, fun, it's great. I love it. I had a facebook account for years now and use it mostly for networking purposes. I use facebook, twitter, hi 5, and myspace. I use them all and met new people through them. One day I was on sending friends request to help build my page up. As I was sending I would evaluate them and noticed that 90% of my friends all say they are christian. Not many of them mention if they are BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS. A CHRISTIAN and a BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN are two different things.
The term BORN AGAIN is first mentioned in JOHN 3:1-7
"There was a man named NICODEMUS ( Ruler of the Jews). Jesus came that night to them and overheard someone saying RABBI, YOU MUST BE FROM GOD. NO MAN CAN PERFORM THESE MIRACLES BUT GOD and Jesus Replied VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO YOU. EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN HE CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD. NICODEMUS asked JESUS HOW CAN A MAN BE BORN AGAIN IF HE IS OLD? Jesus replied VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE. EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN OF WATER AND SPIRIT HE CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE FLESH IS FLESH; AND THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN
In the entire passage GOD was saying it takes more than doing the right things, going to church, or singing on the praise and worship team to please him. When I saw on facebook how many people are saying they are Christians and posting that they are in church daily it makes many think they are heaven bound. Many in this world are deceived thinking that is it but it's not. In MATTHEW 7:23 it says Depart from me, I never knew you. In John chapter 3; it's explained.
If you are not BORN AGAIN GOD does not know you
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
