I usually do not read all the threads and post...don't have time. But I noticed this question was brought up. What does it mean to be born again? Since the thread took a turn down a rabbit hole. I thought I would try to keep it on track. Here is my post. Being born again has nothing to do with works or our behavior. It has to do with God coming to LIVE IN us. Being FILLED with the Holy Spirit. When Jesus told Nicodemous he must be born again he meant he must have a new nature...his spirit was dead, he and all of us are born spiritualy dead and only God make his spirit alive again, by faith in Christ.
