“Peter’s Passionate Preaching”
Acts Series – Part 3
Acts 2:14-41

“False repentance dreads the consequences of sin; true repentance dreads sin itself.” Albert Barnes

“True repentance hates sin for what it is – an affront to God. Knowing that sin is evil and that God hates it motivates the truly repentant person to forsake it. Genuine repentance thus forsakes sin and turns in total commitment to Jesus Christ.” John MacArthur, Jr.
