On the other side of repentance

*

There is no possibility of averting the collapse of the West without explicit repentance: we can only be saved by repentance.

*

But then, after repentance, what would we need actually to do? What specific things?

Ah - that we don't know - that is on the other side of repentance.

Only if we repent will we find out what we need to do.

*

(There is no point at all making plans about it now. The plans we could make on this side of repentance could only be bad plans.) 

*

But if we must repent, what must be repented?

If it is merely that we repent our soft-heartedness or irrationality then we will get cruel secular fascism, nothing better.

But if we repent our sin - that is to say our worldly, materialistic, secular hedonism; which is the state of being turned-away from God and towards our own gratification - then we may eventually get something much better than what we will lose.
