Category: Repentence

It’s an interesting fact that the Gospel of John, which claims to be written that the one reading it “might believe”, never once employs the word “repentance”. After all, many professing Christians will argue that it is impossible for anyone to be saved without true genuine repentance. And I agree, but first we must ask, “What exactly is repentance?
“Changed mind equals changed life.” I’ve heard that line, or some variation, many times. They will say that “repentance” is all about turning one’s life around for salvation or promising to turn one’s life around after salvation. “It’s a change in motives,” they say.
