“The Lord said repent and believe in the gospel. True repentance does not only entail being sorry for one’s previous sins but also a complete turnaround of one’s soul from darkness to light, from earth to heaven, from oneself to God. Repentance without a complete turnaround is nothing more than playing around with God and with one’s own soul. And we ought not to play games with God. He is merciful to a repentant one but chastises heavily him who refuses to repent or whom repents insincerely or incompletely. When He chastises the wound is deep and He is the only one who can fill it again.”
