2021 Annual Meeting. Elder Ben Winslett rightly divides the difference between regeneration and conversion in scripture. Regeneration is solely by the power and work of the Holy Spirit upon the heart of the sinner apart from any means of man or the gospel. Our theology of regeneration must be the same for every single child of God, not different means of the new birth for different people. Then, after regeneration, we must be converted on a regular basis, turning from our own desires to serve the true and living God.
