SERMON TOPIC: Born Again
Speaker: Graham Sahling
Date: 11 April 2009
Topic Groups: BORN AGAIN, SALVATION
Sermon synopsis: One of the most controversial subjects in Christian circles in this modern age is the New Testament teaching, introduced by Jesus Christ, of the new birth or the “Born again experience.”
Jesus chose to clarify this indisputable argument by revealing its true spiritual meaning and application to a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a religious teacher of the Jews, thus proving that the born again experience is not a concept that can be bestowed onto a person by any religious organisation or church and that it did not have its origin through man’s invention, but is a Spiritual requirement of God, performed by the Holy Spirit, to completely restore the sinful nature of man inherited from Adam, deal with the judgment that it deserves, and create in him a new nature acceptable to God.
