    I will defer to Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition. One of it's definitions is: To turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one's life.

    So do we need to repent of our sin or not?

    I think you are creating a crisis where there is none.
    I am stating you can't use Paul's words to nullify the words of Jesus.

    Actually the word repent means to change your mind and agree with God.......at it's root core meaning....

    But I have experienced the transformation that occurs when Jesus leads us to repent. When time after time people tell me I am wrong about the value of repentance, I feel I must defend my position.

    We all try to do that. Paul was a great man but not on the level of Jesus.

    You should learn to read....I never said he was on the level of JESUS....but will note the following...

    a. He was taught by direct revelation from JESUS
    b. Was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write what was written
    c. Preached, taught and penned the word of GOD
    d. Taught the things JESUS wanted to teach but the disciples were not yet ready

    PAUL gave the words of JESUS....get over it...the words he penned were and are the words of GOD himself....end of story!

    The ONLY exception found is when PAUL clearly states he speaks from his own view......maybe once or twice.....!

    I believe most of what Paul wrote was inspired by the Lord, but not this:

    [33] For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,
    [34] the women should keep silence in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says.
    [35] If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.
    [36] What! Did the word of God originate with you, or are you the only ones it has reached? 1 Cor 14:33-36 RSV

    The Savior told us to repent of our sin (Matt 4:17).

    I would repent then.... Keep in mind that Jesus lived and taught under the old covenant. The same covenant that he fulfilled with his death and reserection.
    We now live in a new covenant and under new rules. The apostles taught how we are to live in the new covanent that Jesus established.

    No. Jesus is our Lord. Obey his commandments.

    I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. 6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

    The Gadarene demoniac found no place of argument or contention. He simply grabbed Jesus and wouldn't let go. Such was I, so glad to be found by Him I won't let go. If you're drowning you won't ask for the pedigree of the hand outstretched to you. Oh Lord be merciful to me a sinner!
