Hi Guys

Interesting page.

Just a question on your eight steps of repentance. What if you committed a sin you weren’t aware of how would you go through all of the 8 steps?  if I have done a sin I am not aware of does that mean I have not completed proper repentance?

Regards

Paul

Paul, it’s not about dotting all the “I’s” and crossing all the “t’s”. It’s all about motive and attitude. If you seek the Lord to do His will, He’ll surely cause you to know all you need to know. He’ll convict you of any sin and give you the gift of repentance to turn from it.

Believe and obey; it’s for your life, His Eternal Life He gives to those who believe on Him. Jesus Christ is Lord.

Paul, Paul Cohen here. You have the cart in front of the horse. Those 8 elements follow the repentance that comes from God. In other words, when those elements are present, we know that God is doing a miraculous work of salvation in the person. And when any of those elements are absent, we know that God isn’t doing the work. 

And, O man, the one judging those who do such things, and practice them, do you think this, that you shall escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, and the forbearance and long-suffering, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?” (Romans 2:3-4 MKJV)

“When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, ‘Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life!’” 

(Acts 11:18 WEB)

On December 21, 2022 a website visitor, Marcin, left the following comment in response to this letter: 3 days later, an “alek” replied to Marcin: After a few questions regarding the identify of Alek we received a comment from a website visitor named Amber, fessing up to the fake profile and explaining her situation and problem with Marcin: Marcin responded: Marcin prepared this response for Amber and sent it to Victor to determine if it was appropriate to share publicly: From: Marcin S Sent: December 25, 2022 6:03 AM To: Victor Hafichuk Amber, Yes, my picture is me from two years ago or so. The facts you provided are mostly true, apart from you having that dream from God. And I assume March 2021 refers to my repentance at that time, though that was a checklist repentance, a work of the flesh, and not godly repentance. Anyway, I asked about your picture because the person in the picture, and your name, do not match. See the source for the picture: https://collive.com/no-were-not-amish/ I'm also skeptical that you came here from harvesthaven.com, though I don't have proof for my suspicions. But if you did, how did you come across harvesthaven.com? Now, you know I don't like playing games, Amber, so cutting to the chase. You say I'm hiding behind false righteousness, but that's what I'm trying to leave behind. I know now that I'm a sinner, who cannot do anything good or right. But, during my time with you, I definitely...
