you have heard the tv shows where the preacher is yelling you got to repent and come to jesus ..
Why is it tv shows always put the cart before the horse .. I think this way they can just forget about Jesus .
yet one cant have true repentance untill one knows Jesus perfect life and innocent death is assurance that they allready have been forgiven
2000 years before we now feel sorry for our sin and ask forgivness or promise God never to do it again .
Jesus had already won that forgivness for us ..
we are to trust only in Jesus that his work alone was sufficent Not any act of our feeling sorry or our promises or even our asking of God
For our forgiveness
With OUT FAITH IN JESUS For full and free forgivness of sin THAT HE ALREADY HAS WON FOR US..
REPENTANCE IS JUST A JUDAS STYLE
OF REPENTANCE ..
just feeling sorry for sin never wanting to do it again .. trying to make up for it by what we do .. giving the blood money back
that's commiting spirtual suicide. That TYPE of repentance has no faith in Jesus ALONE ,, for full and free forgivnes of sin..
Faith or Observance of the Law
1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?
