So the other day i was at work when i go tinot one ov my favorite topics, religion. i love this topic because people have such strong opinions about it. Well the subject of repenting and asking for forgivness and all came up. One girl said that she believed that she could do whatever she wanted everyday and then ask the lord to forgive and her slate would be clean, and the next day she would do all the same stuff and ask for forgivenss and so on and so forth with no intention of stopping. well i was raised to believe that if you ask for forgiveness you truly have to want to repent and stop the behavoir to be forgiven, for if you have no intention of stopping then you really arent sorry and therefore cannot truly ask for forgivenss. so what is your opinion? do you think that God is ok with you repeating the same sin daily with no intention of stopping and will forgive you regardless, or do you believe that you truly have to repent?

Repenting is about examining your life and choices you make. It only benefits you if your intention is to improve yourself and move in a more loving direction. God isn't fooled so if we aren't serious about making changes and trying to do better I don't think repenting has any meaning, it's just lying.
