Born again and regeneration are terms that are oftentimes closely intertwined in use. But are they the same ? Is the new birth the same as regeneration ? If yes, why ? If no, why not ? Please provide Scriptures for your answers. I am seeking to learn, not to argue or debate, though it might sound that way to many here. You may quote Spurgeon, Arminius, Aquinas, Wesley, even your pastor, but let their quotes be based on Scriptures they have studied. Thank you all.
