Q. I am the only Born Again Christian in a Catholic family. My husband and family believe in Jesus Christ and believe that He died, rose again, and is resurrected. They don’t believe in being Born Again. My husband says as a Catholic you are born again at baptism when you are a baby. I know that this is definitely not true. My question is – even though they believe in Jesus Christ will they still be taken with me in the Rapture. I’ve tried several times to talk with them about this, but they just don’t get it. Please, can you give me some scriptures and some advice on this matter
A. Being born again means you admit you’re a sinner in need of a savior, believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose again, and ask Him to be your savior. Obviously an infant cannot do that, but anyone old enough to understand what this means can, and will be born again upon doing it whether they’re Catholic or not.
Jesus said no one can enter the Kingdom unless they’re born again (John 3:3) so as long as your family members meet this requirement they’ll be taken in the Rapture Matt. 7:7-8, John 1:12, John 3:16, Romans 10:9, Romans 10:13, 1 Cor. 15:1-4, Colossians 2:13-14, are some of the many examples in Scripture you can use as discussion points on the topic of how one becomes saved (born again).
