It's the other way around.
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
Indeed it is so plain and simple
Yet they will not believe
Faith precedes life
I wouldn't know and I'm not Matt.
Where did I say you can have the spirit without faith?
Neither of those is in opposition of my view.
What I said is not refuted by any scripture you post. God draws, grants faith and causes rebirth.
Your first problem is the text of 1Co 2:14
it speaks of those who have the spirit
1 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV2011)
14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
Unbelievers do not have the spirit
one must believe before one can receive the the Spirit
you did not address the verses showing that
your second problem
you stated they cannot believe without regeneration
that is contrary to the verses I posted and you still gave not addressed
extolling your understanding of 1Co 2:14 or your theology is not dealing with them
that just brings up additional problems with your theologyu
your third problem is you have not demonstrated any irresistible grace which effectually causes faith
men are drawn by the word
They may believe or not believe
If they believe they are regenerated
James 1:18; 1Co 4:15; 1Pe 1:23
also proving faith comes before regeneration
which also you do not address
