I am not sure what sense to make out of your comments.

The Bible indicates we are to die with Christ and then God will raise us up with him to walk a new life (Rom 6:3-5).

How can a dead man die? Is Paul talking nonsense? Perhaps a review of Ephesians 2:1-3 and what "dead" really means there would be helpful.

We DIE with Christ and his cross in our conversion events. There is no way you can get around that except to nullify the Scriptures. Therefore, it seems that the next thing that should happen is that we are raised up new creations with him, that is, new birth, regeneration.
