More about repentance

Does repentance mean to change your mind or to turn from sin? 

More thoughts on repentance from dead works as an essential part of the gospel and one of the elementary teachings of Yeshua. Evangelism is not like making toast. Discipleship and evangelism entail an ongoing process. This teaching includes excerpts from a blog in which an Evangelical pastor explains why he does not preach repentance.

The Evangelical Gospel can be reduced to "Jesus died to save you from your sins. Believe in him for the forgiveness of sins and you will go to heaven when you die." This sermon introduces the Six Elementary Teachings of Messiah with a look at Evangelicalism, our Evangelical roots, and the problems with the Evangelical Gospel, citing Scot McKnight's book The King Jesus Gospel.

The Torah portion called Ki Tetze begins with the words, "When you go out to battle against your enemies." In this Sabbath teaching, Pastor Lancaster homiletically applies these words to the obligation to battle against the evil inclination, particularly in the area of sexual purity. The discussion turns to consider our strategy in the battle against the broader culture's new sexual standards and how we as disciples of Yeshua of Nazareth should respond. 
 

A man goes to the doctor to get some test results. As he sits in the doctors office he sees that there are three folders on the doctor’s desk. One is labeled Good News. Another is labeled Bad News. And yet another is labeled Bad News and Good News.
