Re: Woman admitted she lied on the stand

If you truly repent,  you must try as much as possible ,to make ammends for sins against God and neighbor.

 

It's more than just saying I'm sorry ,to yourself.  You must try to undo the wrong you have done

True repentence comes from the heart. Faith without works is dead.

@JaxsMom

 

....not to stray too far off topic but I don't believe she nor the others involved are going anywhere after they die.

 

What has been reported is the person made a confession in belief she will be forgiven but it does not mention anything about feeling sorrow for the victim.

Re: Woman admitted she lied on the stand

Can this hideous episode in our history possibly get any more hideous?  Yes..if we forget about it.

And as far as the Liar goes she should worry about where she's going! Has she apologised or does she feel remorse? It appears she's only concerned with herself!


 


 

It makes me absolutely sick to my stomach that the ONLY reason she finally told the truth is for her own vile, selfish reasons.    From what I read, that was her motivation. period.   I didn't read anything about any apology, just about her wanting to relieve herself of this lie.  The rest of what I have to say cannot be said here.  Smiley Mad


It goes hand in hand with believing that you will go to hell when you die if you don't confess and repent and nowhere does it say repentance has to be public. You can't separate the actions from the motivation and the beliefs that inspire them IMO.

I agree with you in her case, but not everyone of faith believes that way.

@skylark but we can't forget about it, especially when the world is now learning that because of a lie, a boy was murdered  so savagely.

Re: Woman admitted she lied on the stand

I think @skylark meant it would be even more hideous if people DID forget.

 

I hope she did.
