One thing I would like to State before anyone answers.
I am Not trying to be rude, but I Have to state this: PLEASE have common sense. I am EIGHTEEN. Please do NOT constantly tell me to COMPLETELY STOP SINNING. Do NOT make me feel anymore Fearful or Bad then I feel right now (Even though I haven't commited any horrible sins).
"There is no one righteous; no, not one"... - So PLEASE do Not act like Saints, and tell me to COMPLETELY stop sinning while we are living here on this Earth - PLEASE.
I would like to Simply know what Repenting means.
I know that it means to "turn away" from sins, but why should we Repent when we know that we're just going to constantly sin over and over again?
The reason why I ask is right here (from ChristianLibrary.org) :
"What does Jesus call on us to do to be our friends?1. We must believe that he is the Messiah.I understand that we Should repent, but is there a certain Time to repent? Do we repent before we go to sleep - or do we repent before we Die? Wouldn't it just be a "slap in a face" to Jesus if we repent but just Knowing we're going to Sin yet Again?a. John 8:24 - "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."2. Repent (turn away from) our sins.a. Luke 13:3-53. Confess the name of Christ.a. Matthew 10:324. Be baptized into Christa. Acts 2:38, 22:16"
Please help me - and Please have common sense while answering.
