- Jesus, Circa 30 AD
being "Christian" means a lot of different things to a lot of different
people. Jesus told us in John Chapter 3, "You must be Born again." It
doesn't sound like an option. The problem is that many people are not
sure what that means. I have stopped asking people if they are
Christians and started asking of they are born again. Those that
are will usually know it in no uncertain terms, because a person is not
born again by accident or unknowingly. Salvation, at least our
entrance into salvation, happens in a moment of time and the person
receiving salvation is an active participant. In this section you
will find some resources that will help you know for sure you've been

why so many people have a hard time understanding and accepting
God's free gift of salvation.
There is a God, I'm Pretty sure He Doesn't Like Me! Now
What? By Steve Highlander
The World places value on
people based on their performance. The better a person
performs the more money they make and respect they get. Because
our performance is pretty dismal when it comes to sin, we
