When he it comes to salvation for the unbelievers, you cant repent without believing and cant believe without repenting. In regards to justification, repenting is a synonym of believe.
What does LS stand for? Is it limited salvation?
Thanks, I too, was trying to remember what that "LS" meant.Lordship salvation. Here's a good short article on the subject: https://www.gotquestions.org/lordship-salvation.html
1Thes 1:9 For they themselves report about us what kind of a reception we had with you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God,In lay terms, faith is a turning towards, while repentance is a turning away from, thus they are two sides of the same coin. As we truly turn to Jesus Christ we simultaneously turn away from all else that opposes Him. (No man can serve two masters etc). It is a work of God.
Ah yes G3340 and 3341 are better renditions! I will edit the above post. Thanks!Further to those definitions. The noun metánoia (Strongs 3341) and its cognate verb metanoéo (Strongs 3340) are the usual words used in NT Scripture for repentance and repent. It literally means a change of inner mind and attitude and thus refers to a fundamental change of heart. It fits our concept of the true, deep repentance involved in salvation. Metamélomai, on the other hand, means a change of caring or concern. In actual koiné Greek usage, it refers to remorse or a change of mind—but not necessarily a change of heart. It fits our concept of regret. Metanoía/metanoéo are always deep, elemental, intrinsic, fundamental. Metamélomai is often superficial, auxiliary, non-essential.
I hope that helps.
