Faith before regeneration is impossible



Oh my gosh.......sooooooo many words. And the few I wrote in the OP contradicts them all........because you have the order reversed.

And you simply fail to realize that all your many verses of scripture apply to children of God and NOT children of men. Applying all your verses to God's children eliminates any and all contrdictins with Divine Truth. Applying the passages to children of men CREATES YOUR CONTRADICTION WITH SCRIPTURE (and I am not yelling just emphasizing).
Was that supposed to be a serious comment

You addressed nothing at all

and your comment does not even make sense

The spiritually dead are not the children of God

and the argument being addressed concerned the meaning of dead which you have done nothing at all to prove

see below

Part 2

You assume dead like Lazarus but the bible never associates the story about Lazarus with soteriology

On the other hand is the prodigal son

He was dead separated from the Father

Luke 15:24 (KJV)
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

Reunion with the father is making alive of the son who was dead

corresponding to lost and found

The church at Sardis was dead and told to repent

Revelation 3:1 (KJV)
1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Eph 2 after speaking of being dead in trespass goes on to expound

Ephesians 2:11-13 (KJV)
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in with the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

spiritual death is separation from God due to rebellion

being made alive is being made nigh

Other than that trust is not ascertained by what one wants but what the word of God says

You have many verses you need to deal with which are contrary to your beliefs
