But only one is genuine Christianity, only one is genuine salvation. Romans chapters 3 & 4 make it clear, salvation is by faith alone.
Category 1: Resting in the finished work of Christ by faith alone.
Category 2: Repentance of sins plus faith in Christ.
Repentance of sins, (turning from sins) is in every case works… Jonah 3.10, “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and did it not.” And adding human works to faith for salvation is no salvation at all, it is only pride.
Only category 1 is salvation.
When salvation has happened, then the fruits of the Spirit are manifest in a saint that are actually wrought of God.
You’ve never heard me as a Christian endorse living in a bunch of sin, sin is bad, get away from it. But we all are plagued with many sins.
“Repentance” as it relates to salvation, is to turn from unbelief, to believing on Christ exclusively for salvation.
All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
“Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” Romans 3.28
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Romans 4.5
