Title: Except Ye Repent

Introduction: We have all seen the signs that say “Repent or perish” or “Repent, the end is near!” We’ve also seen caricatures of those who carry such signs in cartoons. The picture usually includes a man wearing a ragged robe and an even more ragged beard. If the world uses the word repent at all, they usually use it to mock. And yet our Saviour says, “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
