Yes, in spite of his environment, and his parents, and his conversations with God, Cain went bad and chose evil.
A fruit tree without fruit is not much value. Jude 11-16
You are correct, a lot of people, saints included, do not want the punishment that they deserve. Folks try and justify the sins in their life, or, try and minimize their sins with no true repentance, in order to get rid of punishment.
Cain is a warning to the saints and to the sinners.
I appreciate your quote
Repentance means a change of mind and heart toward God concerning sin. When a person realizes that he is a sinner, repents of his sin, it is not a work.. repentance of sin is not a work. A person who loves sin will not trust in Jesus. Only those who realize their sinfulness and its condemnation, and need for deliverance would trust in Jesus as Savior. Jesus said, I did not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance (Mark 2: 17) .
There is no physical effort or physic
That's a very heavy rock to carry, thanks to the Grace of God, we do not have to carry it . When a person hear the gospel of salvation for the first time, can he or she accept Christ, for salvation without realizing they are a sinner. Do you want to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior? Yes I do, just pray and say I believe in Jesus. That it, that easy? I believe a person must realize, that he or she is lost, and that we were born sinners. (Repent means to realize)
My question is you said that repentance of sin is a physical work, so do you believe that the sinner must repent of sin and believe to be saved, or you believe that it does not involve repentance of sin to be saved?
Do you believe that salvation is by works or by grace?
IS REPENTANCE OF SIN A WORK THAT YOU MUST STRIVE FOR?
Thursday, May 14, 2020
According to some modern preachers, that repentance of sin is a work that you must strive for, that in order
Both, with the soul and physically. You have to be alive and breathing. Not by good works, (effort) but we seek to do good works, after we are saved. To please and be obedience, to God. Not to be a busybody pleasing some pastor or man.
WHY REPENTANCE OF SIN IS NOT A WORK
Salvation is not of works, Titus 3:5; 2 Timothy 1:9; Eph. 2:8-9, Romans 11:6.
Salvation is by grace through faith, thus it cannot be mix with works, Eph.2:8, Rom.11:6.
Grace and works cannot go together, Rom.11:6, Rom.4:4
Grace is harmonious with faith, but not with works, Eph.2:8-9, Titus 3:5
Repentance and faith are requisites to salvation, Mark 1:15; Acts 20:21; Heb.6:1
Repentance and faith are commands of the gosp
Why do you think that I do believe the same as them when I do not categorize "repent of sin" as a work whereas he repeatedly emphasize repentance of sin as a work. Secondly, in my evangelism outline I include repentance which I do explain as repentance of sin. Thirdly, I do not practice that repeat after me prayer phrase by phrase. Now why do you think it is the same? Of course there are basic in the gospel presentation that are the same for the believers of salvation by grace. Can't you
A follow up on Question 3. You stated that repent that "repent is an action word" Question No. 5 is:
What kind of action do you mean, an act of the will in the soul of man, or a physical action that requires effort?
