Before talking about regeneration, we have to remember the importance of generation. Out of the five points of Calvinism, three of them have to do with the decrees of God. “Total depravity” has to do with this morning’s newspaper (the record of man in the past), and is not one of the secret things hidden from us. The sin of man is revealed to us, and if we believe the Scriptures, can actually be seen by us. So the place to start in understanding regeneration would not be those passages which talk about regeneration (or even apostasy), but those passages which speak about the generation of unbelieving covenant members. Regeneration cannot be understood apart from generation.
