How can the Bible say that God had repented?

Amos 7:1-3
1 Thus the Lord Jehovah showed me: and, behold, he formed locusts in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and, lo, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings.
2 And it came to pass that, when they made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord Jehovah, forgive, I beseech thee: how shall Jacob stand? for he is small.
3 Jehovah repented concerning this: It shall not be, saith Jehovah.

This is a striking sentence from the Bible. In many texts, like this one (Amos 7:1-3), we read that “God had repented”. In the majority of times the Bible says that God would bring a punishment on the people, but after He “repented” doing this. This is not saying that God had repented like a human. God knows everything that is going to happen and He can’t be surprised by anything. The fact is that the Bible uses a human language to speak of God. Many texts explain what God have done with words that express the human attitude for that action. In this texts, God promises a punishment for the people if the keep on the sin; when, however, the people repent, God takes the punishment off. He doesn’t do what he would have done, based on the justice, but, because of the people repent, He takes his anger off and He forgives the sin. Therefore, the God’s “repent” means the He changed his attitude toward human’s procedure.

- Other passages in the Bible saying that God had repented: Genesis 6:5-6, Exodus 32:14, 1 Samuel 15:35, 2 Samuel 24:16, 1 Chronicles 21:15 and Jonah 3:10.

How to improve the community

Nowadays, there is a new vision about communities, we can see it comparing these communities with the old ones. We are losing, day by day, the principles of society, where one person needs to live in group. The individualism is growing more and more. Let’s see some examples to understand more this situation: Today, you don’t need to go to the shopping mall to buy something, you can do it on the internet; you don’t need to go out to see your friends and talk to them, you can do it at home.
Another problem of this difference between communities of today and the past is the security, the world is getting more unsafe than ever, so, because of that, it’s better to spend time at home that going out. One problem that we can’t forget is the speed that the things happen. In these days it’s important to do something as quickly as possible. All this principles are totally different from the principles of the old communities.
Let’s go more inside on the situation. In the past the base of the community was the church, and all the community was built around it. The principles were based in the bible (church), where an individual needs to live in group, doing the best as he can to improve this group. Nowadays, the base of the community is the man, the society is being built around the principles and the goals of the man, where we think more on ourselves than the community itself.
So, in my opinion, we may rescue the principles of the old communities and ally them to our lives, in other words, we need to think more in the community than in ourselves, but using the things that we have today (technology for example) to improve the society and help each other to do our community as better as we can
