Excerpt: "The first son underwent a change of mind after his exchange with dad. First of all, he experienced regret. He was struck with a feeling that he had done wrong before God (hopefully) and before his dad (no question there). He was wrong, no question about it. He disobeyed his father. This feeling nagged him until he did something about it. Let us be clear that it is not the mere feeling that comprises repentance. The feeling arises from the conscience, which accuses us when we do wrong things, based on the information that it has built in from God in creation and what it has been taught. There is an objective right and wrong, and there is in us an apprehension of that right and wrong. This should have an effect on us—an actual change of mind and change of direction. If you do not ever have a sense of being conscience-stricken and then doing something about it, then something is terribly wrong with you. This mechanism is a gift of God; it is indispensable for us in that it helps to keep us on the straight and narrow."
