Question for Calvinists: Was Balaam Regenerate?
The reason I ask is that Calvinists frequently quote 1 Corinthians 2:14
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
They use this verse to argue that a man cannot receive spiritual truth until he is regenerate.
It seems clear that Balaam did in fact receive things of the Spirit of God and was able to know them. He understands that he cannot curse Israel outside of God's will and receives several prophesies.
So would Calvinists understand Balaam to be a regenerate man? I would really like to know.
