Fear of God Devotional: A Story of False Repentance

What is an example of false repentance?

Curt Daniels explains in this video that about 18 years ago, a man came and showed up and said that he had sinned in his past and he was sorry. There were many tears shed. Curt told him that you need to go back, repent, and face the consequences of his sin.

But instead of showing characteristics of true repentance, this man went right back immediately to the same sin that he said he was repenting of. This is an example of what appears to be false repentance – an individual returning to the sin that he allegedly repented of. 

Proverbs 26:11 (NKJV) – “As a dog returns to his own vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.”
