But Charles Finney was unwilling to let Christians rest in the promise of "no condemnation," and he ridiculed the idea of security in Christ as a notion. Regeneration is not the old life made better, but a new life implanted. True Salvation is received through distrust (a firm belief in God) and repentance (turning from sin to God). Repentance is a stage in Christian salvation where the believer turns away from sin. As a distinct stage in the ordo salutis its position is disputed, with some theological traditions arguing it occurs prior to faith and the Reformed theological tradition arguing it occurs after faith. In Roman Catholic theology repentance is part of the larger.

Conversion occurs when sinners turn to God in repentance and faith for salvation.

Repentance and faith are the fruit of regeneration, which is the tree. by John Murray. REGENERATION is inseparable from its effects and one of the effects is faith. Without regeneration it is morally and spiritually impossible for a person to believe in Christ, but when a person is regenerated it is morally and spiritually impossible for that person not to believe.

In Scripture the agency with which regeneration is specially connected is the Divine "word" (compare 1Pe ). Without living faith, in those capable of its exercise, the outward rite can avail nothing.
