  • Pokajanje - Promjena Razmišljanja

    Bez obzira na stoljeća zlouporabe Hrvatske riječi, kada idemo k izvornom Grčkom, mi vidimo da pokajanje (Grčki: metanoia) znači “promjena razmišljanja.” O čemu stoga moramo promijeniti razmišljanje? Zašto Biblija kaže da je čovječanstvo u neopravdanom stanju? U Starozavjetnim vremenima, Bog je dao Izraelu skup pravila nazvanih Savez Zakona. Što je bila svrha toga? Kako je to bilo povezano s grijehom? I zašto je Bog dao savez Zakona ako je znao da će biti Novi Savez?

  • Repentance - A Change of Mind

    Disregarding centuries of misuse of the English word, when we go to the original Greek, we see that repentance (Greek: metanoia) means 'a change of mind'. So what is it that we need to change our minds about? Why does the Bible say mankind is in an unjustified state? In Old Testament times, God gave Israel a set of rules called the Law Covenant. What was the deal there? How is that related to sin? And why did God provide the Law covenant (the Old Testament) if he knew there would be a New Testament?
