    "Lets try to clear some things up. No one is a Christian because they say they are. Every Christian has to grow in Spirit until they become born again. And that cant happen until they go through all the steps of being born again."

    Your premise is incorrect. You do not need to grow in the Spirit to be born again. You receive the Spirit when "born again" and grow from their. There are really no steps. A man realizes his depravity and need for God. At that point he comes to God and repents of his sin is is born from above.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    I know you would like it that way but lets look at the evidence.

    [Jhn 3:3, 5–7
    [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." ...
    [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.
    [6] "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
    [7] "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'

    Something has to be crucified in order to be born again. And to walk in the Spirit.

    [Gal 5:24–25
    [24] And those [who are] Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    [25] If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

    You quoted the verses. Now interpret them properly and live by them.

    lol I know. I'm starting to feel like Paul or Jesus or one of the other apostles. Have you noticed the truth gets banned, but deception flocks together. Just like in scripture.

    What rules? Is one of the rules to not post the revelations of Jesus Christ? That seems to be all I could be guilty of.

    I wonder how many people in here get convicted by reading the revelations of Jesus Christ. You do know that is Gods Word . They have tried to kill the messenger for years. From Jesus until now. You have the same rights that I do. Just prove one of these revelation wrong. I have been posting them for 30 years and no one has ever been able to prove one of them wrong. But yet many get mad at me for posting them. That doesnt make any sense.

    And no, you're guilty of a few different things.

    Just because you're right in some areas doesn't make everything you say correct.

    Try not to be so arrogant.

    Well help me out and share them with me. I have heard some really silly reasons in the past. But God keeps sending me back here to show you people the truth.
