The concept of a spiritual birth has confused many. The Bible consistently compares Christians to already-born children or adults, not fetuses.
Being born again signifies a new spiritual beginning at the beginning of our conversion. We are not yet complete, though; we must go on to perfection.
Baptism and being born again were already understood by the Jews, but the traditions had evidently blinded people to some additional spiritual nuances.
The Bible describes many men, but one of the most important is the new man, a creative effort of renewing our minds in cooperation with God.
The gestation or fetus analogy does not adequately depict the sanctification process in which there has to be volition, judgment, and conscious choice.
God has singled each one of us out individually, calling us, gifting us with capabilities, and preparing us for eternal life as members of His family.
We cannot have peace on a grand scale until we make peace with those closest to us. Without loving our brother, it is impossible to take on God's image.
