John 3:3 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. In a discussion a friend told me that this scripture means literally that the kingdom of God is invisible to those who are not born again. I think most folks would initially take it to mean that those who are not born again cannot go there as in "I'll never see Paris", but of course I realize this is an English idiom that probably would not be meaningful in another language. Here is a possibly parallel verse: Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: So is my friend right? Is the kingdom of God invisible to those who are not born again? If so, what does this mean?
