I don't understand the concept of redemption that well because it seems to me that one goes to church to ask for forgiveness and then goes home to continue their lifestyle, both good and bad habits included. Do you just get "redeemed" every Sunday and then go on sinning?

You'd think redemption would be God's intervention in the very habits you're asking forgiveness for having ... a second chance to start fresh so to speak. But then again, he doesn't override freewill. Prayer & hymns don't seem to avert temptation, nor do they seem to reverse the inertial trend downward.

Good thing the bible says to "forgive 77 times"...
