1st John Series • 9. Tadpoles and Frogs – 1st John 3:4-10 The nature of man without God is dead in sin and serves only sin. An unregenerate person is “committed” to sinning.

Jesus is saying, “This is what I do.”
I challenge those that claim to have the power or means to cause the new birth to raise themselves from the dead three days later! Oh wait, they can't hear me!
