What do you make from the following that I came across:
"The original Greek text uses the word metanoia, from metanous, meta, together with, and nous, mind. From Is 55:8-11 it is clear that this word suggests to co-know with God! It is my mind intertwined with my Maker! So every time you read the word repentance, scratch it out and write, co- know with God (think what God thinks about me! Jesus is God's mind made up about me!"
There is also a Youtube video called "Fun with repentance" by John Crowder that was very thought provoking ! if you wish, you can find it here - he reads from a letter that Martin Luther King wrote to a friend about this "revelation"
