    Can a orthodox or catholic be a born again Christian?
    I think they can if they have a personal relationship with christ and are born out of water and spirit. I have friends who are in free church and they told me a Catholic can be a christian if he has a personal relationship with christ. But not all catholics are christians. And we talked about the Pope and my friend said he is not sure if he is a christian I mean the Pope but that a Catholic can be christian.

    Catholics are born of spirits. Usually scotch and water.

    Does anyone know the difference between a Catholic and a Baptist?

    It depends on what you mean by Orthodox. There are Jewish Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, etc.

    I've always wondered - If you're "born again", does that mean you get to vote twice?

    That's one difference. The main difference is a Catholic will speak to you in a liquor store.

    Of course, anyone can believe any theological system they want. Even if an organization banned them from that religion, it can't change ones personal relationship with God.

    Yes. And Baptists will not speak to you in the porn store.

    Christian Orthodox. Greek, Russian, Serbian etc. Not jewish. Im Serbian-Orthodox but I accepted Jesus as my saviour. I went to free church, they introduced me to their circle and online I did a bible Course. Part of that Bible Course was to say a Prayer that Jesus Christ Comes into your life. Also I have Friends who are in free church, I read bible etc.
