Since the gospel is primarily given to the church and to be able to flawlessly define when one was actually regenerated and or converted, the chance that one was actually converted at a particular time, may have been in the context of a church setting, more likely. The fact that one’s eyes were opened at a particular time (most likely outside of the church walls) can be misinterpreted as conversion when in fact, it was most likely regeneration, the person being converted when he was inside the church walls.
