Repent doesn't mean turning away from your sins. Repent means changing your believe to put your faith in God and in time the change will come. Because is not about your works, is about your faith.
If you don't believe in Jesus Christ as your saviour, and as the Son of God, repent! And start believing it.
In the Bible there is no reference of repentance put in a context of turning away from your sins. I dare you looking for that. Of course I only read the KJV original version, the only one by royal decrete to be printed and accessible for the common man. Any other version falls into corruption of the Word. Actually in 36 verses God repented. Not us. God himself repented. Because he had a change of heart.
Sin and temptation will always surround us. Because is part of the perversion of the evil in this world. This doesn't mean that you should keep sinning regardless either. Remember that Jehova is not of the world. Sin without repentance will condemn you. As you repent the shield of Jesus will protect you from sin more and more.
The Word of God is not confusing. Is clear and simple. The confusion was created by the perversion of this world.
To those of you that fight against your sins, and carry with their consequences without believing in God, Repent! Believe that Jehova will give you the strength you need to carry with your cross. If you fall, repent and embrace the Lord to keep you save. But as long as you have God in your heart, and as long as you commune with him through the Holly Spirit by praying, anywhere and anytime, hopefully every day, then trust in his Gift to you, provided by his Son, Jesus Christ.
Because only through the Son you get to know the Father.
