Repentance and faith

Charles H. Spurgeon describes repentance and faith:

Repentance and faith must go together to complete each other. I compare them to a door and its post. Repentance is the door which shuts out sin,but faith is the post on which its hinges are fixed. A door without a doorpost to hang on is not a door at all, while a doorpost without the door hanging on it is of no value whatever. What God hath joined together let no man put asunder, and these two he has made inseparable--repentance and faith.

Great quote! There is a great deal of confusion in regards to the relationship between repentance and saving faith, to the point where men who preach repentance and faith are often accused of preaching a "false gospel", or a salvation that depends on a "work" (repentance) as opposed to faith in Christ alone.
