Tozer on "Repent or Perish"

When God repeats Himself, men do well to sit up and take notice:

Luke 13:3 'I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish'
Luke 13:5 'I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish'
Humans, deceived by the devil and charmed by their own pride and abilities, deny that our world is a rebel province in God's universe. They deny that human society has willfully pulled loose from God's rule and the rest of God's domain.
In fact, they deny that men and women are the creation of God. They deny even that they owe any allegiance to God, their Creator!
The Bible is the record of how God deals with mankind and we can draw but one conclusion: all people are morally obligated to repent and to ask forgiveness of God. Failing to do so, they will perish.
How rare it is in our day to hear of genuine repentance; we live amid a proud, selfish and self-sufficient people, even in our Christian churches there are those who want nothing more than to be known as "respectable church members!"
When repentance is real and faith is genuine, the atoning death of Jesus Christ is effective for pardon and forgiveness and regeneration. AWT

Acts 17:30b-31 "God...now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead."
