Jesus said- "unless you are born again, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven". Coming to Mother Theresa, was she a traditional Christian or a Born Again believer ? I have great respect for her for the works she did for the down trodden in my country. This discussion is only for some clarity. Lets be open without bias while discussing.

Mother Teresa was born and brought up a Catholic in Albania. Although she would, of course, have fully acknowledged the words of Jesus, she would not have described herself as a "Born-Again Christian" because that generally refers to a particular charismatic style of Christianity. Catholics, perhaps, would consider confirmation as being the significant time of being 'born again'. You can read an outline of her life here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Teresa

I stand corrected. It seems that baptism rather than confirmation represents 'spiritual rebirth' in the Catholic (and Anglican) churches. Read here what the term "Born-Again Christian commonly refers to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Born_again_%28Christianity%29
