MARKS OF TRUE REPENTANCE (PART 2)

Dr Ben Hooman

Charles Hodge, who was a professor of theology at Princeton, made a very striking statement. Writing on the passage in Corinthians he writes, 

“It is a great mistake to suppose that the natural tendency of pain and sorrow is towards the good. A great mistake to think that it naturally moves into a good direction. 

The natural tendency to pain and sorrow rather is to excite rebellion against God and all evil feelings. It is only when these are sanctified, and that by the Holy Spirit to bring into exercise patience and faith in the sufferer, that they then bring forth the good fruit of righteousness”.
