There are some fundamentals that are being perverted. 1. Sin spiritually separates a person from God - this is a fundamental truth 2. God IS life and God IS Light - this is a fundamental truth 3. The bare essence of salvation is restoration to spiritual union with God that which has been spiritually separated by sin. 4. The New birth/quickened/regeneration is fundementally the restoration to spiritual union with God that which has been spiritually separated from God. True salvation is defined by these bare essential fundamentals of the problem of sin in man since the fall to the present whereby spiritual separation is restored to spiritual union with God. Any FALLEN human being since Adam can only be restored to fellowship with God by spiritual union or else they remain spiritually separated from God and thus under the wrath of God.
