Unearthing the surpassing riches of Christ

“Conversion is rightly defined as a turn

“Conversion is rightly defined as a turning to a new direction, and in that definition, repentance is understood as turning from sin in order to turn to Christ. Clearly, repentance and faith are complementary ideas—there can be authentic faith without repentance, and repentance without faith is simply regret, or perhaps sorrow that we are reaping some of the unpleasant consequences of our selfish actions and attitudes.” (Smallman, Stephen. What Is True Conversion? Basics of the Reformed Faith. Phillipsburg, NJ: P & R Pub, 2005, 21)
