I have a question for those who consider themselves to be Calvinists, it has been on my mind for some time. Now, if I understand Calvinism correctly, men are sinners and can only do evil, and they have no desire or will to do things that please God. According to Calvinism, God must regenerate a lost person to believe. This also works an effect upon the will. Now my question. Could some of you Calvinists tell of the time you were regenerated please? I mean, this sounds like a dramatic change that a person would surely notice. Did you absolutely hate God and all his ways and then suddenly turned 180 degrees and loved God? Did it happen in a moment or over time? What were the circumstances when this change happened to you? If you can remember when this happened to you, could you please give at least a little detail? I have been very curious about this for some time. I did not write this so that I can attack Calvinism, I've done that numerous times on other threads. I am sure some of that will take place by myself and others, but I ask this because I am sincerely curious about if Calvinist's noticed a sudden and abrupt change in their beliefs and attitudes. I hope some will respond.
