Default Born again Colin's way

When you have eyes to see the majesty of God's kingdom instead of the things of this world , you have new eyes, when you have ears to hear his glorious voice instead if the voice of man you have new ears. When you have a mouth to praise God instead of man,you have a new mouth, when you have a heart full of truth instead of the deciete of man , you have a new heart, when you put yourself in God's hands instead of the council of man you have new hands, when your thoughts are from wisdom of God and your understanding is of spirit. Then you are born again. Flesh begats Flesh. Spirit begats Spirit. All things are created from Gods word and as you see, you are. If yoiu see the things of this world, it is to this world you belong. If you see the things of the spirit it is the kingdom of heaven that you belong too.

Isn't is true? That they who mind the things of the world are of the world? And who minds the things of the Spirit are of the Spirit? Very nice word; very true. And how many walk around today saying they are God's, yet seem not to perceive the things of his Spirit but of the world and it makes you wonder. Is it that some are just more spiritually grown or is that some believe in God but are not really living "in" him? Yet even a child who "hears" his voice follows, and not another, so it makes you wonder.

"Born again Colin's way." What a scary statement

That was straight from the mind of christ. Bless you!

Very good colin! Only one against you so far! My only criticism would be in support of your one opposer, Linsinbigler. The Title should not have been "Born again Colin's way", but rather, "Born again, God's Way". On the content I am with you.

This is a surprisingly decent treatise on baptism minus the inherent Platonism. Nice job. The title though, truly is frightening.
