Key Text: Jonah 3:4-10

Description:  Theologians talk about two types of repentance: attrition and contritionAttrition is false repentance and usually is only a change in outward actions with no change in heart.  While contrition is a change in outward actions driven from a change in the heart.  Contrition is heart-felt sorrow over sin.  In this sermon we will look at examples of both attrition and contrition from the way that Jonah reacted to God’s word compared to the reaction of the Ninevites.
