REPENTING OF YOUR SINS FOR SALVATION IS A FALSE GOSPEL
No where in the bible does it say repent of your sins , turn from your sins or be sorry for your sins to be saved or to prove you are saved
There is a great amount of confusion today about the issue of repentance and its relationship with how to be saved . The problem has to do with the meaning of repentance
🔴FALSE MEANING OF REPENTANCE
The English Dictionary meaning is turning from sin or being sorry for sin or willing to turn from sin
Unfortunately most people automatically read this false definition into the bible and come up with a false way of salvation
These false definitions are a form of self effort and when applied to the bible creat a works based gospel
🔴TRUE BIBLICAL MEANING OF REPENTANCE
In the New Testament the primary Greek word is Metanoia. Meta to change , noia the mind . It means to change the mind .
Every time the word repent is used in the bible when referring to salvation it is Metanoia.
When God tells an unsaved person to repent He means for that person to change his mind about the way of salvation and believe / trust in Jesus as the only way to heaven
🔴The 3 Books of the bible that are focused on salvation more than any of the others are John , Romans and Galatians
The Gospel of John the book written for the purpose of leading people to salvation never uses the word repent . However John uses the word faith / believe 98 times
Romans uses repent twice but are 2 different Greek words , yet faith / believe is used 39 times
The book of Galatians never uses the word repent. Yet it is the book that strongly defends and explains the gospel of grace through faith alone
🔴If the word repentance means turning from sin a problem arises as in the Old Testament we see many verses that say God repented . This would mean we have a God who frequently turns from his sins. This makes no sense as God has no sins to turn from. This fact should sound alarm bells in the mind of any bible believing Christian about the meaning of repentance
Many verses are wrongly picked out of the bible with the word repent and miss quoted using the false dictionary meaning to say repent of your sins which is cherry picking out of context . Remember the biblical meaning is change of mind .These verses include
Matthew 3:2 / 3:9
Acts 19:4 / 20:21/2:38/17:30/17:23
Mark 1:15
Luke 13:1
2 Corinthians 7:8/7:9/7:10
Rom 2:4
For explanation of these verses in context please read the following link under heading “ application of Repentance “
If you add repent of your sins to your gospel message you are preaching a false gospel and denying the biblical meaning .
Yes we should sin less as believers but that is a sanctification issue and never a salvation issue
