Since "regeneration" is just another word for "new birth" does it not make sense that one is born again after one has died with Christ and is justified? (Rom 6:3-5).

Christ died for our justification and rose again to life. And we are justified by sharing in his death that we might walk a new life. Yet you seem to be teaching that we are raised to life (new birth/regeneration) before we die with Christ and are justified by his blood.

Paul seems to emphatically say we follow the same pattern as Christ.... death... resurrection... we die with him and are justified.... we are raised with him new creations.

But you put the cart before the horse.
