While you explain in detail and truthfully what the term " born again " is all about, which is good; an additional comment must be made. The term also means being sure or certain about your faith.

I remember when I listen to the Rev. Billy Graham and now his son Franklin, when they preach at services that they preside, often mention is made that one do all the right things, be baptized, confirmed, and a member of a church, they state the importance of being certain of one's faith in Christ. This is admirable because it renews the commitment via the sacrement of baptism, all the more important.
