"The recognition that there are healthy and unhealthy forms of repentance is both common sense and biblical (2 Corinthians 7:8-13). On this everyone agrees; secular and sacred. The difficulty is in discerning disingenuous repentance. Mature and discerning people can witness the same conversation and walk away with distinctly different impressions about whether a given expression... Continue Reading →

There is a large following of people who identify themselves as Christian but do not follow the path of Jesus. Instead they enslave the weak and poor and call it ‘christian’.
