Here we have compiled a collection of Biblical and Christian quotes on the topic of repentance.
Fear-based repentance makes us hate ourselves. Joy-based repentance makes us hate the sin.
When a person is drowning, he often in panic makes it difficult for the person trying to save him. So he is made to surrender to the help by dunking him under the water until he gives up fighting. In this same manner Christ wants us to surrender.
If we insist on keeping hell (or even earth), we shall not see heaven; if we accept heaven, we shall not be able to retain even the smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell.
Deathbed repentance is like burning the candle of life in the service of the devil and then blowing the smoke in God’s face.
Another proof of the conquest of a soul for Christ will be found in a real change of life. If the man does not live differently from what he did before, both at home and abroad, his repentance needs to be repented of and his conversion is a fiction.
