False Repentance As Continued Idolatry
Purpose: The call to return to the LORD is given lip service by a people of false
and fleeting loyalty.
- The Restoration of the Truly Repentant (Hosea 6:1-3)
- The Ruse of False Repentance (Hosea 4:4-6)
- The Reality of Ultimate Rebellion (Hosea 6:7-11a)
God knows our hearts and will not be fooled by false repentance.
For the truly repentant, there is the promise in Christ of restoration and resurrection.
