Does Rebirth Exist?

Sacred Scripture test­i­fies that CHRIST has risen. It test­i­fies that JESUS CHRIST on the Cross af­firmed to the rob­ber on His right: “Amen, I say to you, this day you shall be with me in para­dise!” (Luke 23,43) He, how­ever, was a rob­ber. But due to his re­pent­ance and his faith in CHRIST, he ob­tained for­give­ness through the Blood of CHRIST. Surely, there­fore, the much-de­bated sub­ject of “re­birth” is swept aside. Because the rob­ber on the right was a high­way­man and, as a res­ult, ac­cord­ing to the teach­ing of re­birth, had not nearly at­tained his pur­ity in or­der not to be forced to be born again one more time.

With this an ap­pro­pri­ate Bible verse of Apostle Paul, Hebrews 9,27: “All people are destined to die; but they die only once, and after that comes judge­ment.”

What does “re­birth” in Christianity mean?
There are people who say that the first Christians be­lieved in re­birth un­til ap­prox­im­ately Constantine. That is a great er­ror be­cause these first Christians meant by re­birth some­thing quite dif­fer­ent, much higher. They saw in Baptism the spir­itual re­birth to be a new hu­man be­ing in CHRIST. Through Baptism they were born again to child­ship to GOD, to eternal life.

JESUS in Conversation with Nicodemus

John 3,1ff: “Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a mem­ber of the Jewish rul­ing coun­cil. He came to Jesus at night and said: ‘Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could per­form the mir­acles you are do­ing if God were not with him.’ Jesus replied: ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can see the king­dom of God un­less they are born again.’ Nicodemus asked him: ‘How can someone be born again when they are old? Surely, they can­not enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!’ Jesus answered: ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the king­dom of God un­less they are born of wa­ter and the Holy Spirit. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; but that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. You should not be sur­prised at my say­ing: you must be born again. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you can­not tell where it comes from or where it is go­ing. So it is with every­one born of the Spirit.’”

Whoever be­lieves these words of JESUS will never be­lieve in a re­birth into an­other body nor will he sym­path­ise with this the­ory be­cause the words of JESUS have ever­last­ing value, which I can­not say of all those scrib­blers. Still, how many false doc­trines are offered all around in books in or­der to turn people away from the sole aim, that is to be­lieve in the true GOD, in His words in the Bible, in His teach­ing ad­dressed to us men. How ser­i­ous are the con­sequences when a per­son be­lieves in re­birth and no longer goes out his way to live a GOD-pleas­ing life be­cause he thinks: “Surely, I can make up for it in the next life …” Besides, I ask: who in­deed of these scrib­blers would give his life for men in or­der to save them? CHRIST has done so for us men. – JESUS CHRIST need not have come to re­deem us if man were able to do so him­self.
