I think most of us will agree it is an INTERNAL event produced by the power of God. We will not all agree in defining what it is or how it is obtained. At this point I will not attempt to prove what I believe it is but I will simply state what I believe and look at your responses: A. General obvious definition: It is the exact reversal of the descriptive characteristics of the unregenerated condition. B. Specific definition: It is the creation of a new inward nature (new heart) that did not come by natural birth but by the power of God. It is effected by immediate and direct revelation of God in the face of Jesus Christ as revealed in the gospel mixed with faith that cleanses the conscience from the guilt of sin and produces inward peace with God.
