    Does God always regenerate people in response to their hearing gospel preaching? Or might he regenerate someone and leave him 'in the dark' for a while, so to speak, before a preacher brings the good news?

    John the Baptist was regenerated in the womb. He obviously could not exercise faith until much later.

    heh...yeah that's true...wonder why that slipped my mind...

    But do you think John's case was 'special' or is that how God normally acts?

    Only reason why i say John's case might be special is cos wasn't it prophercied(spelling!) that he would be regenerated in the womb?
