I was recently reading the infamous James White/Dave Hunt book on Debating Calvinism. When I came to the chapter about regeneration before salvation, Hunt brought up a point about OT saints believing without any enablement of the Holy Spirit. OT saints were not saved by obeying laws necessarily, they were saved by believing in a coming Messiah, and the practice of the law was their exercise of that faith. "Abraham believed and it was counted unto him as righteousness." James White never addresses this point in his rebutals. Is there any proof that the OT saints had to be elected or re-generated prior to their believing?? Or are the elect only the NT saints. Even if that is true, the human depravity has not changed between OT and NT, so that would mean that OT saints had to be regenerated by the Spirit and then they could believe.
