Nowhere in the Bible does it say to repent of one’s sins. It says one must repent.
Repent means to have a change of mind – in this current dispensation of the grace of God, it means to turn from unbelief to belief in the gospel (good news), how that Christ died for your sins, was buried and rose again on the third day.
If you don’t believe this, you are calling God a liar – read 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, where he presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ and says that if you receive it (believe it), you are saved. It doesn’t say to add anything else onto it in order for your eternal soul to be saved and justified in the eyes of God.
Those who don’t believe the gospel and thus preach another gospel are accursed – not my words, but God’s words in the Bible :
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
The gospel is a free gift, one cannot work or earn a gift – it is given to you for free, at no charge.
Naysayers have to go to Israel’s doctrine to back up their error. The Apostle Paul was made, chosen to be the Chief Steward to dispense a mystery that was revealed to him apart from the 12 Apostles.
Why was the Apostle Paul saying that those who preach the wrong gospel are accursed? Because the Galatians were adding works (the weak and beggarly elements of the law) to Paul’s gospel – which makes it another gospel, which isn’t another – why? Because Israel’s gospel is one of faith + works (performance based) which is different to Paul’s gospel = faith alone is Christ’s finished work + His resurrection alone. Anything you add onto Paul’s “my gospel” makes it another gospel, because Paul’s gospel is faith without works – without having to do anything in your flesh like walk the aisle, pray, confess with your mouth, change your lifestyle, be “good”, etc.
Those clothed in their own righteousness will always seek ways of trying to “do something” in order to seek their own righteousness in order to appease God – Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross + His resurrection aren’t enough for these types.
What they do not realise is that when one believes the gospel, God’s righteousness is imputed to you. So if you have God’s righteousness, why are you going about trying to gain righteousness by way of your flesh in order to be saved?
The Apostle Paul calls those who maintain one has to “repent of one’s sins”, “change one’s lifestyle in order to be accepted of God, Satan’s minister’s of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
2 Corinthians 11:14-15
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Their end is Revelation 20 – the white throne judgment and the Lake of Fire if they do not believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ alone for their salvation. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
It’s not the pubs, night clubs and the like where one is in danger of hell fire – it’s those so-called Pastors standing behind the pulpits of institutionalized, mainline, denominational Christianity, the majority of which are unsaved Pentecostals who follow Hebrew doctrine which isn’t applicable in this current dispensation.
