How many births?

Millions of people are thought to have said the sinner’s prayer but where are they? Evangelist Billy Graham used to lead responders in a cry for salvation and urge those who call on the Lord’s name to show up at a local church “this weekend”.

There had to be a short circuit or a veritable disconnect between the Saviour and people who say a prayer. There is no such road to salvation. One must believe a particular thing and confess it (publicly). I am confident that the number of people who are salt and light is way below the number of baptisms and way below the number of enrolled members. The quality of life and teaching in most countries is simply not up to snuff. That makes the reports of the born-again experience disturbingly deceptive and abominable.

Since Christ is God “country” is a poor partner when it is not the brother-neighbour.
