Regeneration and conversion

"Regeneration and conversion are not the same thing. Regeneration is God giving life. Conversion is the regenerated man turning to God and obeying Him. Baptism is part of conversion."
-- Michael J. Hanschen New Covenant Christian Forum, Mon, 27 Aug 2007

Agree or disagree?

I disagree. Regeneration is conversion. The bible writers equated them, so did the great puritan Calvinistic writers, and our Baptist forefathers.

Baptism is not a part of conversion. No more than is eating the Lord's Supper.

God bless,

Bro. Garrett, thanks for stopping by again. I apologize for being so long in responding. I intended to but forgot about this post. I hope you might notice this.

Would you mind pointing out some Bible verses you feel equate regeneration and converion? Thanks.
