For example, both Catholics and evangelicals use the term “born again,” but their meanings are diametrically opposed. The Catholic is “born again” when baptized as an infant; the evangelical, through personal faith in Christ. Thus to say that they both believe in being born again is misleading. Both agree that Christ died for their sins, was buried, and rose from the dead the third day and is coming back again. Yet to each the meaning of Christ’s death and how its benefits are received is so different that millions of evangelicals were willing to die throughout the centuries rather than to embrace the Roman Catholic interpretation. And their Catholic persecutors were likewise convinced that the difference was so great as to warrant the death of those holding evangelical views.
