What is true repentance?
2011-05-25 08:19:46 UTC Most ordinary people living in the 21st Century probably do not have a clue what the meaning of the word "repentance" is. Some people may think that it means to feel sorry for what you have done, to feel remorse. Although part of true repentance is feeling sorry for an action and feeling remorse, that is not the entire picture, by any means. When you move in to Evangelical Church circles you find that the word repentance has basically been removed from the lingo and replaced with "got saved" which is a much softer and watered down version of the message that Jesus Christ preached. In fact, the first message that Jesus Christ started spreading was not "love your neighbor" or "do not judge" (to the surprise of many), His first message was repentance.http://erikbrewer.wordpress.com/2011/05/25/what-is-true-repentance/
