I did not respond until after regeneration, just like all others who are regenerated by the Spirit. See, still nothing special about me.
Yes. You have made yourself "special" by claiming regeneration for yourself and excluding others that are just like you.
And as long as he is unregenerate he responds in the negative.
You're presenting a scenario contrary to fact. Seeking God is not negative. The fool has said in his heart there is no God. Those that seek God are not fools.
The Calvinist position has always been that those seek.... FIND....
Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
The Calvinist have always trumpeted. There are NONE that seek after God.
