Bible’s definition of ‘born again’ is different from American culture’s – Tim Keller

The Bible does not define “born again” the same way that most Americans think of the term, according to notable Presbyterian pastor and author Timothy Keller.

Keller gave a speech on Monday at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference, held in Indianapolis, Indiana, and centered on the theme of “Conversations with Jesus.”

For his message, Keller focused on John 3:1-16, in which a prominent Pharisee named Nicodemus met with Jesus and learned that he must be born again to enter Heaven.

Keller noted that for most Americans, hearing that someone is a “born again Christian” will make them think of a specific “type of person.”

3 Reasons Why Jesus Is Enough

“You don’t realize Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have.”

– Tim Keller

DEAD IN OUR SINS

One reason we need Christ, even for those who don’t realize it, is that “you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses” (Col. 2:13). We were DOA. We had no pulse. We had earned our wages, and that was death (Rom. 6:23a). But God “made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved” (Eph. 2:5). Today, those who are not saved are like the series “The Walking Dead,” but they don’t know they’re dead. However, Paul addresses those who’ve been born again, writing, “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1).  It was like a wakeup call: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you” (Eph. 5:14).
