I was reading an article on the Highway by RC Sproul called Regeneration Precedes Faith.
In that article I was surprised that he referenced Thomas Aquinas as believing that regeneration precedes faith.
He said that, but he did not quote Aquinas.
Can anyone confirm this?

It seems to be the "Sola" part that Romanists and semi-Pelagian evangellyfish don't get, or more precisely, won't admit, though it is taught throughout Scripture.

They will cheerfully admit that salvation is by Grace, but also by works, hence, not by Grace alone.

That it is by Faith, but also by works; hence not by Faith Alone.

In Christ but not Christ alone . . . must have the (Roman) church also, must have altar calls, must have sinners' prayers, etc., etc.

According to Scripture but not Scripture alone (must have our Traditions); and for the glory of God, yet not the glory of God Alone, for the (Roman) church, or the evangelist, or the "special personal revelation" must get their share of glory also.

Without the Solas, unfortunately, we do not have the biblical Gospel, but, rather, just another man-made religion that cannot save, but can give false assurances to poorly taught or untaught people that they are saved when in fact they are not.
