We went to Wheaton and Chicago in July for Maria's wedding and visited uncle Matt!
NICODEMUS WAS CONFUSED BY STEVE FINNELL John 3:5 Jesus answered. "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. (NKJV) Those who deny that Jesus was talking about water baptism present two conflicting possibilities. 1. That Jesus was referring to amniotic when He mentioned water. and 2. That Jesus was saying that water was referring to the Holy Spirit.1.Did Jesus really mean that a qualification to enter the kingdom of God was you must be born of amniotic fluid?2. To say that water is synonymous with the Holy Spirit, then John 3:5 would be translated as such. Unless one is born of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of God. There is no Bible translation that translates it that way. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (NKJV)Jesus said you must be born again. Being born of amniotic fluid is being born the first time. It is not being born again. Natural childbirth is not a requirement to enter the kingdom of God.When Jesus said you must be born of water He clearly meant water baptism.When Jesus said you must be born of Spirit He certainly meant the Holy Spirit.Nicodemus was confused about being born again, he was not confused about being born the first time.Being born of water is a requirement to enter the kingdom of God. That is an undeniable fact.YOU ARE INVITED TO FOLLOW MY BLOG. http://steve-finnell.blogspot.com
