Repentance and Forgiveness Reversed in Thinking by Most People — A Quote by Brennan Manning in “The Ragamuffin Gospel”

“Repentance is not what we do in order to earn forgiveness; it is what we do because we have been forgiven… It serves as an expression of gratitude rather than an effort to earn forgiveness. Thus the sequence of forgiveness and then repentance… is crucial for understanding the gospel of grace.”

–Brennan Manning, “The Ragamuffin Gospel”, p. 74
