    What is your definition of repentance?

    Feeling sorry for what you did? Or a change of mindset that gives even the least bit of a room for God to work through you?

    Don't get dogmatic.

    Repentance means accept Jesus as your savior and lead a life as outlined by Jesus.  Take a U turn from the way you lived earlier(sinful life) and lead a godly life.

    My definition of repentance is to recognize my offense and feel GENUINELY sorry for what I have done - and not to repeat it.

      This is my understanding, too, as the original text includes the sense of realizing one's wrong and turning away from it (i.e., not do it anymore.)
