Regeneration

"Regeneration is indispensably necessary before any soul can enter Heaven. In order to love spiritual things a man must be made spiritual. The natural man may hear about them, and have a correct idea of the doctrine of them, but he cannot love them (2 Thess. 2:10), nor find his joy in them. None can dwell with God and be eternally happy in His presence until a radical change has been wrought in him a change from sin to holiness; and this change must take place on earth."
~ Arthur Pink, "Regeneration or The New Birth"

This essential doctrine is so twisted in today's Christianity. Most within the 'free will' camp believe they pick Jesus first, then that leads to being regenerated. Why would God need to regenerate you IF you can simply choose to be saved? Others believe regeneration comes through another 'work', such as baptism.

There is so much error in American Christianity. I believe God allows this and sends the strong delusion to all who refuse to love His truth and cling to their error. How we need men like Pink today who would stand against the tidal wave of errors being preached throughout this land!
