hey all. at it again. sorry. --- just some questions here to try and clear some stuff up... is repentance a work? or is repentance a response? do we deserve God's forgiveness? no. God gives us the ability to repent - and God fogives us. we do not merit to deserve God's forgiveness do we? what do you think? --- also: why would repentance be mentioned along with faith (repentant faith) at least thirty times in the new testament if repentance wasn't needed for salvation? --- so my question: is repentance a work? have you got scripture to support your answer? --- im just trying to clear some stuff up here.
