"Born again!". It's a familiar term that's been done to death in recent times. If you google it you come up with all sorts of things from movies to songs, albums to books, and of course the Abba tribute band Bjorn Again. Born again is a hair product, a beauty mask, a motorbike restoration business and a fashion show. It's an American activist group and a comic book. Right here in Melbourne you can even cover your concrete slab with "Born again floors." Born again is an Elvis impersonator in Sydney, and rapper Snoop Dog said he was born again after visiting a Rastafarian Temple in Jamaica earlier this year where a High Priest told him, 'You are the light; you are the lion.' He now refers to himself as “ Snoop Lion” . I kid you not.
Christians are accused of being too focused on getting converts and likened to telemarketers according to research conducted by David Kinnaman for the Barna Foundation.
While it horrifies me to think that Christians are seen to pester, in response to this criticism I would say, “Yes, I am out to convert people to Jesus because I believe He is the way and the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him” (See John 14:6).
