  • I don't know much about Born Again Christian or Angelican. But I do know that Buddhism is not a form of Christianity in any way.

    Basically, Budda is a state of enlightenment which is (as far as I understand it) a sort of god-like state that one can attain. There are thousands of buddas, male and female.

    Wikipedia has a decent page on it.

  • Being born again refers to the experience of accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior and being "born again" into a new life' leaving the "old life" (life without Christ)behind. Being born again does not neccesarliy mean that you've been baptized although most believe that once you have accepted Christ, one of the next steps would be water baptism. Different religions differ slightly on that particular issue.

  • Heyyyy, I am a Born Again Christian...it means that you have acknowledged that He is Lord, He died, rose on the 3rd day, and have asked Him to come into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior. You are now a new creation, as someone else stated, you should see if you can go through the water baptism next. Also, there is more that Jesus has in store for you, you should seek for the Holy Ghost too! Being a Born Again Christian is the BEST thing that ever happened to me. I am no longer a dead man walking :)

  • I'm a Catholic-Christian that is Born-Again. Being Born Again has different meaning for different Christians. For me as a Catholic Christian being born again means being baptized. Christ said that to be born again means be be born of water and Spirit (John Chapter 3). Water and Spirit = Baptism. For other Christians being born again can be something different as the other moms here have already express to you. If someone is Anglican then they ARE christian, it just means they are members of the Church of England also known as the Anglican Church. Buddhist are NOT Christians.

  • BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACCEPTED THE GIFT FROM JESUS OF HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS.

    ANGLICAN: IT IS A DENOMINATION AMONG THE CHRISTIAN CHURCHES. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT DENOMINATIONS. HOWEVER MOST OF THEM AGREE ON THE LARGER ISSUES IT IS THE SMALLER POINTS THAT THEY DIFFER ON.
