"Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!" Matthew 3:2
|SERMONS, ESSAYS AND OPINIONS|
Repentence is a sincere realization of past and present wrongs with a promise to no longer continue to commit those wrongs. In the Bible, we are told to that be saved we need to repent of our sins. In some denominations, such as the Eastern Orthodox, this act is only deemed the beginning of repentance. Repentence in such traditions is considered a life-long process of turning away from all sin (sometimes poetically referred to as "the world" or "the flesh") and towards God.
