- Most proverbs are general truths, and should not be treated like promises; they can have exceptions. (e.g. Prov 22:6)
- Some proverbs teach gospel truths which are universally true; there are no exceptions (Prov 28:13; Psa 32:1-5: 1 John 1;8-9).
- Repentance doesn’t not make us no longer sinners.
- We repent and believe unto salvation at our conversion; then repeatedly through the Christian life.
