Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

Hi Homer, Actually it does support my view. The word γενναω (gennaō)="beget" is the verbal form and γενεσις (genesis)="begetting" is the nominal (noun) form of the same word. The English word "generate" is derived from this word. The nominal form is usually translated as "regeneration." As I underst...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

There are two distinct words for "born" and "begotten." The word for "born" or "give birth" is "τικτω" (tiktō) whereas the word for "begotten" or "conceive" is "γενναω" (gennaō). Here are some examples of each: And she will bring forth (tiktō) a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will sa...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

If we compare the life of a Christian to being begotten and in the womb it seems to me to indicate an entirely passive state of complete ignorance. I don't understand either your meaning here or your reasoning. Firstly, I didn't compare the life of a Christian to being begotten. I compared the begi...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

Thanks Graeme, I see now what you were getting at in your reference to Phil 1:6. As I understand it, the Lord began a good work in us, but then continues that work of salvation from sin in us until it will have been completed at the day of Jesus Christ. Salvation is a life-long process. If our salva...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

I was looking at Phil 1:6-7 recently because I was confused about some translations which use the word 'until' the day of Christ Jesus, not 'at the day..'. In many, if not all othe uses of the word 'epi' there seems to be an indication of a time separation between the two events. If so then the com...

Re: Born Again or Begotten Again?

Seballius, you asked: If you think it right says - “you must be begotten again”, how does that differ from being born again? Consider your physical begetting and birth. You were begotten when the sperm entered the egg. You were born, after you spent 9 months growing in your mother's womb. Spirituall...

Re: Are You a Unitrinian?

Later, I found that I could download one of the free addresses to the graduates of the Unitrinian School of Personal Harmonizing. In reading this I discovered that Unitrinian purpose was to develop a strategy of spirit-soul-body harmonization. The school does not appear to be Christian, and by “spir...

Born Again or Begotten Again?

Born Again or Begotten Again? There is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour who is the Anointed, the Lord. (Luke 2:11) The word in this verse correctly translated as “born” is “ετεχθη” the aorist passive indicative of the verb “τικτω” (I bear). But there is another word that is trans...

Re: Abe Lincoln on the Bible

When his son died, Lincoln reportedly said, "May God live in all. He was too good for this earth. The good Lord has called him home. I know that he is much better off in Heaven." By the way, Abe Lincoln and Charles Darwin were both born on the same day in the same year. I also was born in the same m...

Re: John 8:58

I think I answered that in the final three sentences of my post: One who was called "Yahweh" was in heaven. The other was the One on earth who had been talking with Abraham. Through the power of the One in heaven, the One on earth was able to rain sulfur and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah . The One was ...
