Remorse, tears, changed behaviour, pledges to comply, and expressions of guilt and sorrow are all part of the human apparatus for dealing with God’s surprising and free offer to the Jewish people and the world.
The popular and passionately declared explanations of repentance and the life that follows the saving gift of faith are woefully grace-free and thankless.
A lot of wrecked ship litter the landscape of the spiritual quest. There are among the thousands of mega church members a mere handful of the elect; one in four to be precise. For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
