BUTLER COUNTY
Illustration: BUTLER COUNTY - A 16-year-old teen has been sent to a rehabilitation program for setting fire to Middletown church and vandalizing a gas station last winter. The boy pleaded true — the equivalent of guilty in adult court — to vandalism and arson for starting the Jan. 22 [2017] fire on Tytus Avenue First Church of God and vandalizing a Middletown gas station before the church fire. Judge Ronald Craft stayed a sentence for the teen to the Ohio Department of Youth Services, if he successfully completes a program at the Butler County Juvenile Rehabilitation Center, which is a medium-security facility. He was also ordered to pay restitution to the church of $1,000 and $605 for the gas station. The judge said the church congregation has insurance to pay for the rebuilding of the church, minus the $1,000. Before the sentence was handed down, the teen offered an apology for his actions.

Response -

Faith
Faith is not believing in something you can’t prove, as so many people define it. It is, biblically speaking, reliance. A rock-solid, truth-grounded, promise-founded trust in the risen Jesus to save you from sin.

Repentance -
Repentance
If faith is turning to Jesus and relying on him for salvation, repentance is the flip side of that coin. It is turning away from sin, hating it, and resolving by God’s strength to forsake it, even as we turn to him in faith. [Gilbert, G. (2010). What Is the Gospel? (p. 79). Wheaton, IL: Crossway.]

Gilbert, G. (2010). What Is the Gospel? (p. 79). Wheaton, IL: Crossway.
The difference between an unconverted and a converted man is not that the one has sins and the other has none; but that the one takes part with his cherished sins against a dreaded God, and the other takes part with a reconciled God against his hated sins.
