This episode is all about that doctrine of repentance. First, Joy talks us through how to determine when, how, or if repentance has to take place in an interpersonal relationship between us and another believer. Did this person sin against us? When do we forbear and when do we confront? Then we talk about the root of the word repentance, and what it should look like in a believer’s life. How can repentance be both a command and a gift from God? There’s a lot to dig through here, so buckle up!
We are aware that a lot of discussion has gone on lately regarding national repentance. This episode is not a response to that discussion. We understand that there is a small portion of our listeners who will assume we are taking a shot at Thabiti Anyabwile and his post-MLK50 commentary but honestly….how could we? We haven’t even laid the groundwork for what repentance is and what it requires of us in so many of our evangelical corners. Although we touch oh-so-briefly on the concept of “national repentance”, to tackle such a topic well or fully would demand its own episode. We do believe that national repentance is a Biblical concept, and our nation is very much in need of it in more than just one area. Maybe we will delve in to that worthwhile discussion at some point!
