They Need To Repent Also

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to REPENT” (Acts 17:30).
Some people do not think they need to repent. They are religious people who are in error, but the very people to whom the apostle addressed these words were religious people. In fact, they were more religious than you or I; but it was in ignorance, and as a result, they needed to learn the truth and repent of their idolatry and serve the one true God.
“But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:9). The words of Jesus describe the condition of many today. Their desire to satisfy “self” rather than God has placed them in rebellion against Him, as they make their own religious laws. Of this THEY need to repent.
