I think the thing about prevenient grace is that it's always there --
from eternity it is prevenient. The change is in the consciousness of
this grace within the recipient and its efficacy.
I also think the quotation provided by Prof. McColley needs to be
qualified. Remember the image of the scattered body of truth
continually being gathered together in Milton's _Areopagitica_.
Regeneration isn't perfection: there is always growth.
