One of modern Christianity’s most shocking proposals is that one can cling to Christ with one hand and sin with the other. In short, repentance is no longer considered necessary. Along with sin, hell, fire, and brimstone, repentance has been banished to the heap of dry doctrines—seldom taught and therefore misunderstood.
Yet according to Scripture, repentance is vital not only for salvation, but also for maturing in Christ and becoming the effective believer He wants you to be.
In The Test of True Repentance, John MacArthur clarifies the importance of repentance in salvation and daily life. This study, based on the message of John the Baptist—one of Scripture’s most intriguing characters—offers you foundational instruction if you’re a new Christian and important reminders if you’re a veteran believer.
