Godly parents cannot convert their children
(Mary Winslow, "Life in Jesus")
"We were born with an evil nature, and
we were under God's wrath." Ephes. 2:3
"You must be born again." John 3:7
Godly parents cannot convert their children.
God alone can do this. But they can lead them
to Jesus, and bring them up in the fear of the
Lord. And when they have done this, they have
done all they can do; for the Holy Spirit alone
can change the heart. They must be born again.
Christ has said it. It is not a change of sentiment,
nor an outward reformation of life; it is a new
heart implanted by the Holy Spirit.
"They are reborn! This is not a physical birth
resulting from human passion or plan--this
rebirth comes from God." John 1:13
