Question of the day: is it necessary?
This is another question that was sent to me by my friend Nick. If you’re like me, you will probably form an opinion immediately upon reading the questions. But take a moment and think about it…
Consider such Scripture verses as Mark 16:16, John 1:12, John 3:15-16, 18, 36, and John 6:35, 40, 47.
Here’s the question…
Is it necessary for a person to be repentant in order to obtain salvation? Or is believing simply enough?
Is repentance an immediate bi-product of conviction, or does it come later when the individual can fully understand the depths of sin?
Thoughts? Opinions? Scripture to back up your ideas?
