There are many, one in particular who holds to the view that one must believe before a person is regenerated. Many say that the view that one must be regenerated before they can believe is false. My question for those who hold to the view that one must believe before he can be regenerated is this; In John 8, Jesus is speaking to a group of Jews. As He was speaking, some of the Jews believed. John 8:30 If you go on reading you will see where Jesus told this same group (Jews who believed) that they would die in their sin. He didn't say they might die in thier sin, He said that they would die. What do you do with these scriptures? Why were the Jews not born again? Could it be because they were not of God? Not His elect?
