Lecture 8, A Monergistic Birth:
The previous lesson discussed God’s sovereignty in bringing about the new birth. As we examine what Scripture says about the way that God sovereignly works in bringing a person to faith, we encounter the truth that the new birth is not a collaborative effort between God and us. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson will survey several passages that describe the new birth, and he will demonstrate that the new birth is solely the result of God’s initiative and work. In other words, the new birth is a monergistic birth.
