Confession is saying something.
Repentance is doing something.
There is a great need for repentance that is driven, not by a fear of hell, but a Passion for Him.

    Jimmy Pearson RichardAnna Boyce have yall NOT repented when getting saved? I am yet to meet a person who did not repent upon salvation … Peter Vandever Joe Absher Acts 11:18 KJV — When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

    2 Timothy 3:13 KJV — But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

    I don’t know why people fight repentance.

    Repentance is a gift from God . Jesus preached repentance and faith but these rebels defy scripture and sound doctrine . they are deceived by sin and pride and vain imaginations . Lyndsey Dunn may have something to add to this too

      Troy Day from 2 Cor. 7:9 I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. 10 For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death. 11 For behold what earnestness this very thing, this godly sorrow, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter.” NASB
      May we sorrow over the things that cause our Lord and Savior to sorrow.

      Troy Day the above scripture says true sorrow, God’s kind will bring repentance. Thought that stood out.

      Troy Day Grace is grace – and its is amazing grace. The tension between grace and license goes back to Paul, won’t be solved by man in this age, mho. Its a work of Holy Spirit.

    Acts 11:18 Repentance unto life here references a POST-BELIEF experience related to the pouring out of the Holy Spirit on, and dwelling in, BELIEVING GENTILES.

    The bestowal of the Holy Spirit on the Gentiles furnishes the key to the phrase “repentance unto life”. The narrative complements Peter’s message to the Jewish worshipers at Pentecost (cf. Acts 2). On that occasion his Jewish audience required repentance and water baptism as conditions for both the reception of the Holy Spirit and the forgiveness of sins—national reconciliation and personal restoration to fellowship with God. These requirements related to fellowship with God rather than to the reception of eternal life—a gift conditioned only on belief in Jesus as Savior.

    Repentance unto life here references a post-belief experience related to the pouring out of the Holy Spirit on, and dwelling in, believing Gentiles. Zealous Jewish believers would know about OT Gentiles who believed in Messiah and received justification from God (Rahab, Ruth, and others). Most importantly, they would have primarily associated repentance with the nation of Israel’s experience of fellowship with God.

    These Gentiles had entered the sphere of true life and blessing immediately after they placed simple faith in Jesus—rather than either through the experience of a proselyte (i.e., converting to Judaism) or the conditions placed on the wicked generation nationally charged with the crucifixion of the Messiah (repentance and baptism). They now had the privilege of enjoying enablement for the Christian life and its attendant blessings through the ministry of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

    repentance that leads to life.” SURE dont sound like post-believe in Acts 11 18 It straight forward says that it LEADS so it must be PRE-belief plain and simple as Jesus said it himself
