They That Were Born Of God

John chapter 1 contains a statement many believers use to teach a concept known as “decisional regeneration.” Specifically, the phrase that those who received Jesus as the Messiah were given power to become the sons of God. However, in the sentence following this statement, John insists that those who received Him did so because they were born, not of blood, their will, or any other human’s will, but of God. How do we reconcile these two statement? Does the reception of Christ cause the new birth, Or rather, does the new birth enable the reception of Christ? Join us for this message in our series on Sovereign Grace statements from John’s gospel for the answer to this question.

Born from Above

One of the most clear and instructive passages concerning the new birth is found in a conversation between the Lord Jesus Christ and a man named Nicodemus in John chapter 3. In this teaching of Christ, we learn that without the new birth, also called quickening or regeneration, a person is unable to see the Kingdom of God. Also, it is revealed and that God is sovereign in this vital phase of salvation. Join us for this study in our continuing series on Sovereign Grace statements from John’s gospel.

Examples of Regeneration

Whatever one believes about any Bible doctrine, the stories of the Bible ought to corroborate their views – if those views are correct. In other words, Bible theology should be demonstrated in Bible accounts. In this broadcast, we consider some obvious and notable examples of the new birth. As we do, ask yourself the question: Does my teaching on regeneration line up with these examples?

Beware This Leaven

Borrowing from a warning Jesus’ issued about the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees, Ben Winslett warns against a concept popular among some conservative evangelicals that many times leads to either to pride or discouragement: Lordship salvation.
