Someone asked in my Theology Facebook Group, “If repent is a requirement of salvation, then why doesnt the book of John mention it?”
I said, the book of John says “sin no more.” But read the book of Acts, which was the evangelism of the Apostles, in which they called sinners to “repent.”
If faith is required for salvation, how come the book of John doesn’t use the word “faith”?
If the atonement is required for salvation, how come the book of John doesn’t use the word “atonement?”
If mercy is required for salvation, how come the book of John doesn’t use the word mercy?
See where this faulty logic leads?
Read in the Epistles of John what he said about those who were born of God – that they sinneth not and practice righteousness.

Many verses in the Gospel of John take the sinners repentance for granted.
Jhn 1:43 – The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
Jhn 10:27 – My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Jhn 12:26 – If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
