This not really a question, but if you want to comment go ahead.?
We all must be born again in order to get to heaven, which means we must be saved. Romans 10:9-10, Also in order for us to get to God we must first go through Jesus, believe he is the son of God, he died on the cross for our sins. This way is the only way, and its the best and good way.

Don't believe it. Paul wrote that. He was an egomaniac.

Heaven? What or where is that? Heaven or Hell is what we make of our lives here on Earth - there is no such physical place as Heaven or Hell. IF there is a God, aren't we ALL the children of God? If we aren't, then what are we? The teachings of Jesus are the same - reworded in some instances - as those taught by many of the Eastern religions such as Buddhism, so who's to say the philosophers who founded those religions weren't right?
Something to remember, Jesus was a teacher. His followers called him "rabbi" which means "teacher." It doesn't mean "son of God" since everyone falls into that category (making the assumption again, that there is such a person as God). Jesus was a Jew - not a born-again,Bible-thumping Christian since there was no such thing as a "Christian" until after he died and the Christianity cult grew up around him.
Jesus said to worship his Father - who is in each of us - and not him. Yet, what happened? People worship him - a Jewish rabbi and not his Father, the God figure. As a result, with the exception of Judaism, all religions are flawed because of whom they worship. How many prayers have you heard in a church that start out "Our father...." or "Dear God?" They all start out praying TO Jesus which is not what he taught.

I have a question If when you get saved you are filled with the Holy Spirit and the Spirit was given to man after the crusifiction, and Jesus told Necodemus he must be born again then was Jesus refering to Nicodemus's FUTURE OR WHAT.
MAYBE BEING BORN AGAIN IS A CONTEXT TEASER.

I believe that works for Christians and if that is what you believe, then God Bless. Muslims, Jews... they all get to Heaven through different means. I guess I believe in the Buddhist belief of, "One summit, many paths."

The Savior taught us that all men and women must be born again. Nicodemus, one of the rulers among the Jews, came surreptitiously to the Savior by night and said, “Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Nicodemus was bewildered and asked: “How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?”
Jesus explained that He was talking about being born spiritually. He said:
“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Our first birth takes place when we are born into mortality. Our second birth begins when we are baptized by water by one holding the priesthood of God and is completed when we are confirmed, and “then cometh a remission of [our] sins by fire and by the Holy Ghost.”Source(s): James E. Faust, “Born Again,” Ensign, May 2001, 54

Every set of beliefs or religion has it's basic concepts and it's misconceptions. Your spiritual connection with the Divine is the most intimate personal relationship you will ever have. No one knows what path best expresses your own unique connection with a Higher Power, not ministers, not priests, not psychics, not your family, not your soul-mate, and not me

as far as I am concerned this is fine, however GOD is to big to be in only one place and there are many ways to get to ones destination. one can walk, ride a bike, a motorcycle, take a ca, a train, a plane, etc. and still get to where one wants to go.

Why don't you think before saying something that stupid. You just condemned 80+% of the worlds population to hell.
