On Regeneration

First of all, Blessed Reformation Day to all my readers. In line with Paul Washer's recent sermon entitled Ten Indictments, I was thinking an article on Regeneration would be good. Here is a good article on Regeneration by J.I. Packer.

As the Evangelical Arminian Charles Wesley sings also, in one of those rare moments inconsistent with his professed theology:

Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray—
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

Charles Wesley was not (especially later in life) anything like a consistent arminian. John argued with him over it, I believe.

Jonathan:

I wouldn't be surprised. Evangelical Arminianism is one big system of inconsistency.
