“I don’t repent to be forgiven, I repent because I have been forgiven”.

So Ray doesn’t get down on his knees and ask God for forgiveness because he already knows that Jesus paid the price for his sins and that he is already forgiven. Ray’s sins were forgiven before they are committed.
Yes, we are living under Grace. But don’t we have to examine our conscience, tell God the Father our sins, ask for His forgiveness, say sorry and repent, in the name of Jesus? I try my best to do this.
I think Ray is missing something.
