START BY ANSWERING THIS QUESTION: “HOW MUCH DO YOU HATE YOUR SINS?”
In the Bible Jesus told the story of two men who went to pray. (Luke 18: 9 – 14).One man prayed and said, “God, I thank you that I am not as bad as some other men. I am not a murderer, a thief, or an adulterer. I fast twice a week, and I give to help those less fortunate than me. “
The second man, keeping his head bowed in shame, beat on his chest, (probably wishing he could beat the sinfulness out of his own heart), prayed saying, “God be merciful to me a sinner.”
The second man regretted his sins. He knew that because of his sins, he deserved to go to hell.
