Jesus proclaimed to Nicodemus that being born again was not an option, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again”(John 3:3).Nicomemus responded, “How can this be?” Today, people still respond this way.
There is the idea all across the land that Christianity simply consists of people trying to be as good as they can be. This might be called “liberal Christianity.” Liberal Christianity is alive and well in the mainstream media and in our culture. Jesus still looks any people straight in the eye and says, “You must be born again” (John 3:7). This is a message that will not be allowed to receive air time in our popular media today, but the message still stands. This is THE evangelical message.
