I have always struggled with the idea of repentance. Not knowing what is truly means and also being scared of it for some reason or another. I tend to avoid it because I don't understand it totally in either Biblical or experiential terms.
This quote better helped me rap my mind around why repentance is not only necessary but a vital component to a follower's growth as we strive to become more like Jesus.
"Repentance means turning away from darkness to light. We must name and accept our sin, understand that it remains within us, and use it as a spur to another kind of existence." Chris Hedges
This quote was taken from Hedges book called Losing Moses on the Freeway. I encourage anyone who is interested, intrigued, confused, or ignorant of the 10 Commandments application to society NOW they should pick up this book.
My name is David. I just moved to Chicago to attend seminary. I don't want to be a pastor. I just love studying and wrestling with theological questions and concepts.
Here I muse and wrestle with my life.
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy"
When Hinkle was built in 1928 it was the largest basketball arena in the world. Today, it may no longer be the biggest stadium but for what it lacks in size it makes up with 81 years of Hoosier basketball character
