“Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.” (1 Peter 1:2)
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
It is the effect of regeneration to follow Christ, exhibit holiness, walk after the Spirit, be obedient, be servants of righteousness, servants of God, walk in His statutes, and believe to final salvation. In Hardshell language, this would mean that discipleship is produced when they become sons. As we heard another analyze correctly, to say that it is not a definite effect of regeneration portrays a God who sort of taps His people on the shoulder in regeneration and says "I'll see you on the day of the resurrection!", leaving their present life to be determined by Pelagian free-will.
An utterly destructive passage on this novel grid is Jesus's statement in Luke 8:19-21:
"Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it."
Here our Lord announces the spiritual family is the same as those who hear the word of God and do it. He weds together spiritual relationship with being hearers and doers of the word, or in other terms, sonship with discipleship. His "mother" and "brethren" are gospel converts!
And again in Matthew 12:50:
And of course any verse which says there is no salvation outside of Christianity utterly razes such an idea to the ground:
"Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."(2 John 9)
My hope is that those who overlay the scriptures with this grid will come to see it as an error, and come to see that regeneration produces discipleship. To be a son is to be a follower of Christ.
