The condemnation and abhorrence of one's own sins, trusting in God, as his own Redeemer. True repentance or contrition springs up from a sense of the outrage which sin commits against the love of God, believing in God, the Forgiver of sins. It includes sorrow for sin committed, confession of guilt, and intention to make amends.
