6. Regenerated and Reformation:


Regenerated = new state in which man acts from good through truth from ("salvation") the Lord.
Reformation = state prior to regeneration in which truths are implanted through a man's faith while he battles his evils from fear of the Lord or religion. When these truths of faith are loved and done, they are conjoined to good ("heavenly marriage") and the man is regenerated.
Loving and doing truths of faith allows the man's will to receive the Lord's food and, to the extent this occurs, the man's understanding is opened to heaven ("angelic wisdom").
