Regeneration vs. Faith

Last post I asked the question "Which comes first, Regeneneration or Faith?" There were some differing answers so I thought I'd explain:

All men, women and children born into this world are dead in sin and incapable of doing anything to merit their salvation. If we are going to be saved, it is God who must save us. We have no power to have faith in him. Regeneration is first and after God works in us - Faith is the reward. It isn't something we choose it is something that is given to us.

Kinda going along with this... another question:
What is your view on altar calls?

I did talk to Grace and I'll prolly call you tonight or tomorrow. I'm at the Ray's right now, though...so we'll see. Anyways, very good post. Did you write that? It sounds very smart. ;-) And my views on alter calls...hmm...well I don't think they're sinful or anything, but I don't think they're nessicary.

I'll prolly see you tomorrow. Love you!

Well... I got the answer itself out of a book, but I tried to rephrase it more into my own words.
Anyway I'm so excited for tonight and tomorrow!!!! :)
Love you!

Hey Ellie,

How are ya? Thanks so much for the birthday gift. I love it!!

Alter calls: I haven't really thought about it, but I'd have to say that generally speaking they are not wrong, but I think they can generate too much emotion. Which is wrong in a worship service.

I love your post deary!! and you too!! ~Lizzy
