An elder once said that a key thing they are trying to determine in a judicial committee is if the offender's "repentance level" matches the seriousness of their sin. For example if they committed fornication that is a serious sin (an 8 or 9). They want to see the offender showing a repentance level of 8 or 9. (crying, sobbing, very distraught)
All of the above is quoted from what the elder said.
This isn't found in the Pay Attention to Yourselves book, but I have heard it before. It doesn't really make sense to me, what are your thoughts?
