RichardAnna Boyce the nature of faith requires two things: 1. a turning away from sin, which is repentance, and, 2. a turning to God, which is obexience.

Without either attitude/action, faith is not real, it is not saving.

That is not to suggest that either repentance or obedience are meritorious or conditions, in themselves, for salvation; only to say they both together make up what is true, saving faith.
