The usual biblical word describing the “no” we say to the world’s lies and the yes we say to God’s truth is repentance...
Repentance is not an emotion. It is not feeling sorry for your sins. It
is a decision. It is deciding that you have been wrong in supposing
that you could manage your own life and be your own god; it is deciding
that you were wrong in thinking that you had, or could get, the
strength, education and training to make it on your own; it is deciding
that you have been told a pack of lies about yourself and your neighbor
and your world. And it is deciding that God in Jesus Christ is telling
you the truth.
