Repentance is an active thing, not passive and automatic.
It becomes active after it has been first given and caused by God Acts 5:31

31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Acts 11:18

18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

2 Tim 2:25-26

25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

See, they are active in recovering themselves after God gives them repentance.

Thats how the prodigal son recovered himself, God gave him repentance, a change of mind.

The Parable is designed to exalt the Saviour in saving sinners.

From Matthew 13 (NKJV);
13 On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
The Purpose of Parables
10 And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”

11 He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the [a]mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:
‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand,
And seeing you will see and not perceive;
15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I [b]should heal them.’

16 But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; 17 for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
The Parable of the Sower Explained
18 “Therefore hear the parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 20 But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. 23 But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
salut l'ami 😊. Hi friend.
This is a nice scripture could you give clarity as to why you've posted it, so we can study your interpretation of this scripture.

I don't want to cause division between Oyster and ourselves but it wasn't so long ago we had a member here called FrankSophia who was banned and shared the same sentiments as oyster
you are soooo confused, it is you who is causing division. Oyster is a valued member, a pillar on this forum here he is truthful and what he says is in alingment with scripture.

not at all i was refering to something else, I asked Frank what was the true Gospel, he refused to acknowledge Its about God saves and replied back with the true Gospel is about maintaining salvation, which is not issue it's what else he believed that concerned me.

I do not condemn you never wrote that, i just note that you are confused about scripture, as for answering question please do give people time, i am not here on this forum all the time.

The title of your opening post is untrue, you can lose your salvation here is an example in french; since you know french and want to learn;

Eze 28:11 La parole de l'Éternel me fut adressée, en ces mots:
Eze 28:12 Fils de l'homme, Prononce une complainte sur le roi de Tyr! Tu lui diras: Ainsi parle le Seigneur, l'Éternel: Tu mettais le sceau à la perfection, Tu étais plein de sagesse, parfait en beauté.
Eze 28:13 Tu étais en Éden, le jardin de Dieu; Tu étais couvert de toute espèce de pierres précieuses, De sardoine, de topaze, de diamant, De chrysolithe, d'onyx, de jaspe, De saphir, d'escarboucle, d'émeraude, et d'or; Tes tambourins et tes flûtes étaient à ton service, Préparés pour le jour où tu fus créé.
Eze 28:14 Tu étais un chérubin protecteur, aux ailes déployées; Je t'avais placé et tu étais sur la sainte montagne de Dieu; Tu marchais au milieu des pierres étincelantes.
Eze 28:15 Tu as été intègre dans tes voies, Depuis le jour où tu fus créé Jusqu'à celui où l'iniquité a été trouvée chez toi.
Eze 28:16 Par la grandeur de ton commerce Tu as été rempli de violence, et tu as péché; Je te précipite de la montagne de Dieu, Et je te fais disparaître, chérubin protecteur, Du milieu des pierres étincelantes.
Eze 28:17 Ton coeur s'est élevé à cause de ta beauté, Tu as corrompu ta sagesse par ton éclat; Je te jette par terre, Je te livre en spectacle aux rois.
Eze 28:18 Par la multitude de tes iniquités, Par l'injustice de ton commerce, Tu as profané tes sanctuaires; Je fais sortir du milieu de toi un feu qui te dévore, Je te réduis en cendre sur la terre, Aux yeux de tous ceux qui te regardent.
Eze 28:19 Tous ceux qui te connaissent parmi les peuples Sont dans la stupeur à cause de toi; Tu es réduit au néant, tu ne seras plus à jamais!
