Two Minute Apologetics
In a strange way, sharing what we love with someone else makes it fresh for us again. Makes me want to go out there, and do this. We are loved by God. Here we see named some of the women who were at the Crucifixion. The only reason, for example, abortion is legal in our country today, is because Catholics allow it to be. But he invited me to his friends party and we spent time together in person for the first time.
The final authority here is the Church. Protestants have as their sole rule of faith the written Word of God, which we find in Sacred Scripture. It explains alot of what has gone wrong in my past relationships. This has eventually ended the Union in divorce. Conversely, if your mood is great, it will shine through all of your other great qualities and you will shine brightly and attract love from every angle.
Is that necessarily a bad thing? To believe that the only things that happened to and around Jesus during His passion are the things recorded in the Bible, is to leave a whole lot of gaps in the story. So, are we necessarily wrong to believe Veronica wiped Jesus' face, just because the Bible says nothing about it? I would simply ask her if she believes that everything that happened to Jesus during His Passion is recorded in the Bible? If she says, "Yes," then go through one of the accounts of the Passion and ask her why it only takes a few minutes to read about every single thing that happened to Jesus in a period of time that is somewhere around hours long.
She pretty much has to say yes, that it is a "possibility. If she says, "Yes," it could have happened, then simply tell her that it is not an article of the Catholic Faith that it did indeed happen. But, based upon the best information we have, we believe this yr. Therefore, we use this tradition as a point of meditation and prayer. It's just that simple. One doesn't have to believe that Veronica wiped the face of Christ in order to be Catholic.
And, if she didn't wipe His face, that still doesn't nullify the prayers we pray at that particular station of the cross. God knows our intent and our hearts and He uses our prayers regardless of whether Veronica actually wiped the face of Christ or not. With someone who believes in salvation by faith alone, I take them to this verse and simply ask: And I point out to them that this verse is drawing a parallel between the body and the spirit on the one hand, and faith and works on the other hand.
Faith is analogous to the body, and works are analogous to the spirit. The verse clearly expresses a simple truth, both body and spirit are necessary in order to have life - physical life. So, and I make sure to emphasize this point, for the analogy to hold, both faith and works are necessary to have life - spiritual life.
Which means the Protestant dogma of salvation by faith alone - Sola Fide - is one that will not lead to life. As the body alone, without the spirit, is dead, so faith alone, without works, is dead - as Scripture explicitly states in James 2: And dead faith does not lead to salvation.
If you hear that argument, then simply take their interpretation and try to plug it into this verse. In order to fix the analogy, we have to change the verse yet again: By plugging in a sola fide interpretation, the verse becomes nonsensical. Are the bodies down at the morgue not really bodies? Of course they are! But they are dead bodies - without life. Just so, faith without works is really faith, but it is dead faith - without life.
In other words, there is no such thing as salvation by faith alone - works are necessary to complete faith James 2: Another way you could read James 2: Faith and works are both necessary for spiritual life, just as body and spirit are both necessary for physical life.
The Gentiles were pagan and they worshipped numerous gods. Sacrifice was not being offered to the Lord God in all the nations. First of all, this verse is referring to the worship of God, which is the context within which sacrifices, or offerings, are made to God in Scripture.
How many churches do you know of that offer incense at any of their worship services? In other words, this verse from Malachi is telling us that from the rising of the sun to its setting all day long some sort of worship service will be taking place among the nations the Gentiles in which they offer incense and the only pure offering that has ever been made - Jesus Christ.
What type of worship service do you know of that takes place in all the nations, all day long every hour on the hour , where the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross is continually offered to God? Again, this is a description of the Mass where we participate in the body and blood of the sacrifice - Jesus Christ - by eating what has been sacrificed - Jesus Christ. So, it is very clear, from Scripture, that the worship of God involves incense and a pure offering, or sacrifice.
And, in New Testament and Old, we see the actions of the Mass described exactly as we experience them in the Catholic Church today. The Mass involves a sacrifice, the once for all - all time and all people - sacrifice of Jesus Christ. I will continue this discussion in my next article by looking at the Letter to the Hebrews. Last week I talked about the Mass as sacrifice as seen in Malachi 1: This week I want to talk about how the Letter to the Hebrews reaffirms the notion of the Mass being a sacrifice.
What does the Bible tell us is the function of the high priest? Now, how long is Jesus to be a high priest? So, if Jesus is going to be our high priest forever, then He needs some sacrifice to offer on our behalf forever, as it says in Heb 8: What does Jesus offer?
By reading Hebrews chapters 4 through 10, it becomes very apparent that the Old Covenant offerings of animals were merely a prelude to the pure offering Malachi 1: The offering of the high priests of old in the earthly Holy of Holies, was merely a dress rehearsal for the offering of the eternal high priest in the true Holy of Holies in Heaven.
What happens at the Mass, is the priest, acting in the person of Christ, offers to the Father that same offering that Christ offers in Heaven. One last thought, relating to the use of incense at Mass.
In some of the various Protestant and Evangelical congregations, their belief regarding communion is very close to what Catholics believe. However, only a priest ordained by a bishop who has authentic apostolic authority can effect the change of bread and wine into the real body, blood, soul, and divinity of Christ. Which means that these congregations, even though they believe they are receiving the Real Presence, are not actually doing so.
They are receiving a piece of bread and some wine. In most of the Protestant, Evangelical, and non-denominational congregations, however, not only do they not have a validly ordained priest, but they also do not even believe in the Real Presence. Their communion service is meant to be merely a symbol.
The question is, does that make it okay for Catholics to receive? No, it does not. In the Catholic Church, we believe the reception of Communion is the sign and symbol of union - union between Christ and those who receive Him, and union between all those who receive Christ in this sacrament.
In a marriage, the physical union of husband and wife is the sign and the symbol of union between the two. If there is no union - no lifelong commitment - then the sign of union should not take place. Which means sex outside of marriage is a lie - you are saying with your bodies that a union exists, that a commitment has been made, when no such union actually exists. Just so, it is a lie for someone who is not Catholic to receive Communion in the Catholic Church, when there is first no union with the Catholic Church.
When you receive Communion in the Catholic Church, you are saying with your body that you are in union with the Church and that you believe as we believe. And not just in regard to the Real Presence, but also in regard to the Pope, to Mary, to the other Sacraments, to the Communion of Saints, the priesthood, salvation, and so on. If there is no union, there should be no Communion.
The same holds when you receive communion in a non-Catholic faith tradition. You are saying, with your body, that you believe as they believe. You are telling everyone present that there is essentially no difference between what they believe about communion and what you, as a Catholic, believe about Communion. You are telling a lie with your body.
The Church teaches, as God clearly states in John 3, that Baptism is necessary for salvation. The Church believes that God wants all men to be saved, and therefore gives all men the opportunity for salvation.
The "ordinary" means of salvation is through the Sacraments beginning with Baptism given to us by God through His Church. But, the Church holds out the possibility that there is some "extraordinary" means of salvation known only unto God, by which those who are not physically baptized may still receive the grace of salvation through Christ Jesus. Paul says in Rom 2, when speaking about those who have not the law, " The Church teaches that non-Christians who are invincibly ignorant of the truths about Jesus Christ and His Church, "may" be saved.
In other words, it is possible for them to be saved, if they are indeed righteous, if they have never been told about Jesus, and had no way of finding out about Him and thereby believing in Him. If, however, they have been exposed to Christ, and know something of the claims of Christianity, yet have either rejected those claims or not investigated those claims willful ignorance , then they may indeed have a difficult time come Judgment Day.
This is why it is so incumbent upon us, as Catholics, to do all in our power to bring Christ to the world, to bring Truth to the world. The best chance any person has to be with God in Heaven for all of eternity is to be a Catholic who is devout, regularly receives the Sacraments, and does all in their power to be holy.
It is difficult enough to be holy with all the graces available to us as Catholics, how much more difficult for those who do not have Baptism, who do not regularly go to Confession, and who do not regularly receive the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist!
Therefore, we cannot simply sit back and say, "Well, these are good people, surely God will take them to Heaven even though they are not Christian. By our Baptism we are all called to evangelize. If it's not something we are comfortable doing, then we need to pray to God to give us the strength and the wisdom to get out there and do it anyway. The lives of souls are at stake.
No one can say whether or not someone will end up in Hell, that is a judgment reserved for God alone. However, one can indeed say that getting to Heaven is not an easy thing and that we need all the graces possible in order to persevere in holiness to the end, and that the greatest graces available to us are found in and through the Sacraments.
Therefore, one can conclude that those outside of the Sacraments have the odds stacked against them. The first of these is Matthew He who is able to receive this, let him receive it. He is referring to those who live a celibate life in order to better serve the kingdom of heaven. Who do we know who fulfills these words of Christ?
Who do we know that has taken a vow of celibacy - who has made themselves eunuchs - for the sake of the kingdom of heaven? No, no, and no. No slight intended to the aforementioned ministers, but Catholic priests are the only ones I know of who fulfill these particular words of Jesus.
Here in Matthew So, the discipline of priestly celibacy - and it is a discipline, not a doctrine - is indeed biblical. Now, the other Scripture passage I mentioned in support of priestly celibacy is 1 Corinthians 7: The unmarried man is anxious about the affairs of the Lord, how to please the Lord, but the married man is anxious about worldly affairs, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided.
Paul is telling us that one can best serve the Lord, and His people, by remaining unmarried. Not to say that you cannot serve the Lord while married, but rather to say that you can be more single-minded in serving the Lord if unmarried. It is simply a matter of common sense that when a person is single, they have more time to be about the affairs of the Lord then they do when they are married, and certainly when they are married and have children.
The married man is indeed anxious, as Paul says, about worldly affairs and his interests are indeed divided. So, in 1 Corinthians 7, we have another passage from the Bible that supports the practice of priestly celibacy. It is also worth noting that a life of celibacy - priestly or otherwise - is a sign pointing to the hereafter.
As it says in Matthew What does the word "apologetics" mean? The word "apologetics" is derived from the ancient Greek word apologia, which means, an apology.
Not an apology in the modern sense of the word - which is to say you're sorry for something. But rather, an apology in the ancient sense of the word - which is to make a reasoned defense of something or someone. In ancient times, the word apology referred to the case a lawyer would make on behalf of his client. Are there any basic rules for doing apologetics? We need to always keep in mind 1 Ptr 3: So, how can we "always be prepared" to make a defense of our Faith?
Anything else we need to know about apologetics before we start engaging in it? A few more basics about apologetics before we move into specific apologetics topics: As Catholics, do we have to accept everything the Church teaches? If you want to call yourself Catholic, but you want to pick and choose for yourself which of the Church's teachings to accept and which to reject, you give everyone else who calls themselves Catholic the right to do the same thing.
I had a friend ask me why Catholics have Crucifixes in our churches Why do we keep Him on the cross? First of all, you would want to check out 1st Corinthians, chapter 1, verse Doesn't he know Jesus has been raised from the dead? Of course he does! But, he knows that it is through the power of the crucified Christ on the cross that the bonds of sin and death are broken. As Paul says in verse 24, Christ crucified is the "power of God".
I had a theology professor who told me that Adam and Eve were just myths, and that the rest of Genesis was all just legends The Church has always taught that Adam and Eve were real people and were the first human beings from whom all other human beings are descended. They had to be real for that to happen. Adam and Eve are not myths. Genesis does not contain myth or legend. That is Church teaching. Challenge anyone, who teaches differently, to produce their sources from a magisterial document.
They cannot do it. They can, however, produce countless books and articles by "theologians". A friend of mine said that his church takes the Bible literally, but that the Catholic Church doesn't Actually, there is no truth to that, whatsoever.
Catholics interpret the Bible in a "literal" sense, while many fundamentalists, Evangelicals, and others interpret the Bible in a literalist sense. Literal, or Catholic, interpretation vs. How should I respond to someone who asks me if I've been saved, or born again?
Answer with a resounding, "Yes! I have a friend who says that Baptism is a symbolic act and that it has nothing to do with salvation By showing them what the Bible says. First, nowhere does the Bible say that Baptism is merely a "symbolic" act Second, let's see what the Bible does say about Baptism: Why do Catholics confess their sins to a priest, rather than going directly to God? Well, the quick answer is because that's the way God wants us to do it. A friend of mine has been reading the "Left Behind" books that have all of this stuff about the "Rapture" in them The "Rapture" refers to a passage in First Thessalonians, chapter 4, which talks about Christians being "caught up" in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
Many Christians believe, and the "Left Behind" books promote, that this being "caught up" to meet the Lord will occur before the Great Tribulation which is headed our way in the near future. Christians will simply vanish, meet Jesus somewhere in the air, and then return with Him to Heaven to await the end of time But notice, in verse 17, Paul says that " The Bible clearly says that Jesus had brothers and sisters, but the Catholic Church teaches that Mary was a perpetual virgin An example of this can be seen in Gen My Protestant friends say that their church goes by the Bible Alone, but that the Catholic Church has added a lot of man-made traditions to the Word of God No, it is not true.
Protestants have as their sole rule of faith the written Word of God, which we find in Sacred Scripture. And listen to what Paul says about "tradition": In 1 Timothy it says that Jesus is our sole mediator, yet we pray to Mary and the Saints.
Is that going against the Bible? Therefore, praying to the saints goes against the Bible because you are making them mediators between God and man, you are diminishing Jesus' role as the sole mediator!
No, it's not and let's see why not. The Bible says to call no man Father, so why do we call our priests "Father"? In other words, if you interpret this passage to say, absolutely, that no man is to be called father, you cannot distinguish between calling a priest, father, and calling the man who is married to your mother, father. Why do Catholics call Mary the Queen of Heaven? Doesn't God rebuke the Israelites in the O. Should we not refer to Mary with that title, therefore, since it is the title of a false goddess?
However, just because God rebuked them for worshipping the false queen of heaven, doesn't mean that we cannot pay honor to the true Queen of Heaven In Romans, chapter 3, it says that none is righteous and that all have sinned, but the Catholic Church teaches that Mary is without sin Romans 3, verse 10 says, " If absolutely no one is righteous, then who is James talking about?
Luke chapter 1 says that Elizabeth and Zechariah were righteous before God. If absolutely no one is righteous, then how can that be? Is Scripture contradicting itself? No, the folks who interpret Romans as saying absolutely, without exception, no one is righteous, are misinterpreting that passage.
They are failing to realize that the key to understanding Romans 3: Why do Protestants not believe John 6 when it says that Jesus' flesh is real food and that His blood is real drink? How do you answer that? The Catholic Church does not now, nor has it ever, taught a doctrine of salvation by works How do I respond to someone who believes that only the "chosen" ones are saved?
A Baptist friend of mine asked me where in the Bible does it use the word Pope or say anything about the Pope? For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you Note then the kindness and the severity of God: Once saved always saved? I need some help. Sometimes when I share my Catholic faith with people, they mention to me that Catholics like to drink alcohol and how wrong that is.
How do I respond to this? I would ask them to tell you where in the Scriptures does it say anything about drinking alcohol being wrong? It says getting drunk is wrong, but it doesn't say merely drinking is wrong. In fact, it tells us just the opposite: I heard criticism about the luxuriousness of the Vatican and St.
Peter's, while there are so many poor people. Where did the money come from to build these things? How much of parish money goes "to the Pope"? Can you please give me some defense of this line of questioning?
First of all, if someone is critical of the Vatican, are they also critical of the Temple of Solomon 1 Kings 6? By all accounts, the Temple of Solomon would have made the Vatican look rather poor by comparison.
Should the Israelites not have built the Temple of Solomon? Should they have used all the resources that went into it to feed the poor instead? I was in a religious discussion today and was asked why our commandments are different than the Protestant version.
Our 10 Commandments do not differ from the Protestant version in content, there is simply a difference in how they are organized. The Protestants first two commandments are: And, their last commandment is simply: Thou shalt not covet. The Catholic Church does, in a sense, make an altar call at every Mass. When people approach the altar to receive Communion, they are indeed accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, as they accept His body and blood into their bodies.
Jesus says in John 6, verse 51 and following, that unless you eat His flesh and drink His blood, you have no life in you. If you eat His flesh and drink His blood, you will have eternal life He says, and He will raise you up at the last day.
First, ask your father-in-law if he agrees with the statement that one must be a member of the Body of Christ in order to be saved. As a Methodist, he should say that he agrees. Did Mary have other children besides Jesus? The Church teaches that Mary was a perpetual virgin. How would you respond to that? I would respond by showing that Jerusalem actually fits the description of the harlot of Babylon, while the Catholic Church does not.
Because the relationship between God and Israel was often described in marital terms. Therefore, when Israel would worship false gods, she was described as a harlot. You have loved a harlot's hire upon all threshing floors.
Some may say, "Well, of course the beast is Rome - the city on seven hills - but, the harlot is the city within the city, Vatican City, where the Catholic Church is headquartered. When John wrote Revelation, he spoke of the harlot in the present tense: IS the great city which HAS dominion over the kings of the earth.
Catholics say that faith and works are necessary for salvation and that one has to be baptized in order to be saved; yet, the Good Thief did no works and was not baptized, and still Jesus told him he would be in paradise. I have a question for you that my son asked. In the Creed we read: At what time does this judging occur?
Directly after death or at a later time? There is a particular judgment at the moment of death, and there will be a general judgment at the end of time.
There is a fascinating parallel between chapter 1 of Luke and 2 Sam, chapter 6: I have an Evangelical friend at work who claims that the Catholic belief in Purgatory is not scriptural. What should I say to him? My brother-in-law lives in [up-state] New York. His parish priest conducts "general confessions" and gives general absolution.
Now my brother-in-law believes that he no one needs to go to private confession. Please help me to respond to this. I was taught from other Christian churches that baptism must be by immersion, but the Catholics sprinkle.
I see nowhere in the Bible that I can find where it specifically states there is a certain way to be baptized, just that is says "by water". Can you tell me if there is any material on the matter or is that an "open to interpretation" thing? We are homeschoolers who have a very good friend who's a "Bible-Only" Christian. I try my best to be polite, explaining the best I can about what Catholic-Christians believe.
During Lent, I took her to the Stations of the Cross at our parish, since her church "didn't do much before Easter. However, when we got in the car, she questioned me on Veronica - saying she is not in the Bible and so on.
How should I respond about Veronica? Do you have any more questions along those same lines? Where in the Bible does it say anything about the Mass and the notion of it being a sacrifice?
At some of these a communion service is offered. I have been told that communion by someone other then an ordained priest, from the lineage of Peter, is not communion and there is no problem. It is just a symbol and not a real communion. What is the ruling on taking communion at these services? I have seen a good number of non-Christians living a righteous life. Will they not enter the Kingdom of God? Where in the Bible does it say anything about priestly celibacy?
I have a friend who says that the Catholic Church is going contrary to the Bible by requiring celibacy for its priests. I want to answer that question by first using Scripture and then by using some common sense.
To demonstrate the very scriptural nature of the doctrine of Purgatory, I want to first establish some Catholic scriptural principles. I will start in the Old Testament. In 2 Sam David realizes he has sinned. Yet, David receives punishment for his sin after he has been forgiven - his child dies.
Catholic Scriptural Principle 1 — there is the possibility of punishment for sin even after one has received forgiveness. Catholic Scriptural Principle 2 — nothing unclean - nothing, in other words, with the stain of sin - will enter Heaven. If the work which any man has built on the foundation [Jesus Christ] survives, he will receive a reward. It must be somewhere else. There is the possibility of punishment for sin even after one has received forgiveness.
Nothing with the stain of sin will enter Heaven. And there is a place besides Heaven or Hell where you can suffer loss, yet still be saved, but only as through fire. Catholic teaching on Purgatory is indeed scriptural. Now, what about the common sense perspective on Purgatory that I mentioned earlier?
Well, think about this: Are you perfect right now? Do you have any attachment to sin? Do you ever get sick? I have asked a whole lot of people that question and I have never had anyone say to me that, yes, they are perfect. Would you be perfect in Heaven? Yes, you would be. You would be perfectly united to the Body of Christ, no more sin, no more pain, no more anguish, no more illness. Your soul would be free from sin and your body - after the Resurrection of the Dead - would be in its glorified state.
You would be perfect in Heaven. Well, think about that. You die imperfect; but you enter Heaven perfect. How did that happen? There was some process by which the spirit of the just was made perfect. This week I am going to start a series on Apostolic Authority and the Pope. I want to answer some questions such as: Who is the Pope? What is Apostolic Authority?
Why is either important to us as Catholics? I want to start off by laying down some fundamental principles about the Church. Some Catholic biblical principles. Before we can properly understand the nature of Apostolic Authority and the role of the Pope, we need to understand the nature and role of the Church. The first principle I want to mention is that Jesus founded one Church. As Jesus says in Mt He used the word church.
The second principle is that Jesus established an authoritative Church. A Church which can speak authoritatively regarding truth. To know the truth, then, is critical for us as Christians. To be saved, to reach Heaven, we need to know the truth! So, where do we find this truth? Where do we, as Christians, look for the truth. Well, for the Christian, what is the pillar and bulwark of the truth?
The pillar and bulwark of the truth is the Bible, right? The Bible itself tells us that the pillar and bulwark of the truth is what? The pillar and bulwark of the truth is the Church! Paul says that the Church, not Scripture, is the pillar and bulwark of the truth. So, 1 Tim 3: In other words, when you go looking for truth, look to the Church. And, in order to decide on matters of truth, in order to fulfill its role as the pillar and bulwark of truth, the Church has to have - authority!
If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But, if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Notice very carefully what this passage does not say! It does not say that we should consult Scripture to decide the dispute.
It says to tell it to the Church. The final authority here is the Church. See how it says that if he refuses to listen even to the Church!
Here, we see Scripture very plainly telling us that the Church is indeed a church with authority. If the Church is to speak authoritatively to the world on faith and morals, it has to have authority! For many non-Catholic Christians, however, the Church does not have authority. For them, the Church is this invisible entity made up of all true believers, regardless of what denomination they are in.
The various churches, or denominations, here on Earth, such as: But, they are not THE church. This idea of the church being invisible precludes the church from having any real authority. After all, if the church is invisible, how can it make authoritative decisions on matters in the visible world?
For the Catholic Christian, however, we believe that the Church is both visible and invisible The Church is the Body of Christ Eph 1: The Church is the fullness of Christ Eph 5: Jesus, the head of the Body, has both body and soul, he has a physical dimension and a spiritual dimension. So, it only makes sense that the Church, which is His body, has both body and soul, that it has both a physical dimension as well as a spiritual dimension.
So, to say that the Church is merely spiritual, that it is the invisible unity of all believers, that it has a soul but not a body, doesn't make good scriptural sense. In John 17, Jesus prays to the Father at the Last Supper in these words, "The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them [Jesus' followers], that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and thou in me that they may become perfectly one so that the world may know that thou hast sent me The unity that Jesus is talking about here cannot be an invisible unity of all believers, it has to be a visible unity if the world is to see it and know about it.
The Church has to be a visible Church! And listen to what Scripture has to say about the visible unity to be found within the Church: Does God the Father believe, for example, in infant baptism, but God the Son does not?
To sum up what I have said so far: You laughed about it and got totally embarrassed, but it felt good to have a special someone. Then you hit high school. His voice broke, her body changed. Suddenly, they were hot. But being an adult seems so far away. On the one hand, your body is telling you it is totally ready to hit the relationship market, or at least to experiment a little. On the other hand, the land of serious relationships feels like it is a loooong way away. We are loved by God.
Loved so much that God sent Jesus to save us, even when we were his enemies. If we are followers of Jesus, that means we are a new creation in him.
God is central to our whole lives. Even our relationship lives. Or am I trying to get into stuff that I want to hide from him? Do they drink, smoke, use drugs? This kind of "first impression" information is very helpful as you think about who you will or won't consider dating. How well do I know them? It always makes sense to go out with someone you've known for a while rather than a stranger. Do they treat others with respect? Ever been around a girl who can't do anything but put down her boyfriend?
Ever spent time with a guy who likes to brag about how far he got on his last date? Not exactly the kind of people you want to trust with your self-image or your reputation. Do our values clash? Are the things most important to you also important to them?
Are you headed in the same general direction in life? You value good grades and plan to attend college; your potential date regularly cuts classes and has no plans for life after graduation.

He told me he walked into the bar and saw me wearing an Astros shirt and surrounded by 10 guys, and there was no way he was leaving without talking to me. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that one should not make a declaration that Jesus is their Lord and Savior - we need to constantly proclaim our faith in Jesus Christ - but the Bible does not say that one is "born again" by making such a verbal declaration of acceptance of Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.
