Remorse vs. Repentance

Really interesting study this evening, looking at Revelation 17-19

Some notes/thoughts:
The subtle temptations of Babylon seeking to seduce us. We should be seduced by the Bridegroom, not Babylon.
What does it mean to come out of Babylon? To reject the subtle, mundane temptations and not to forget that we are in a spiritual war.
There is a distinction between remorse (passive) and repentance. Repentance is an active thing – do we stop, turn round, actively flee?
How do we reject Babylon? Reading the Bible, being immersed in His word, understanding our inheritance – we are bought with a price – we are not our own.
