Now Thomas believes, yet it wasn't by him being regenerated by the Holy Spirit, like you claim,
Where does it say, "yet it wasn't by him being regenerated"?
I don't see that ANYWHERE in the passage.
What this proves is you can put your trust in Jesus and believe in him, without receiving the Holy Spirit first.
This is not a didactic passage, it's a narrative.
So you are wrong and scripture shows you to be wrong. God bless.
Wow, you are truly a legend in your own mind, aren't you?
