Repent! Why Many Christians Totally Misunderstand Repentance

Do you cringe whenever you hear someone yell “Repent!”? The word “repent” isn’t supposed to make you feel guilty or shameful. That’s a misuse of the word. Repent means “change your mind.” Jesus wants us to change our mind about God. We generally think that God loves us and hates our enemies. When we think this way, we need to repent, because God loves all people. And calls us to love all people, too.
