Then why did Jesus say it would have been better if he had never been born? Are we forgetting Christ the judge? Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Did Esau repent? Hebrews 12:16 lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. 17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. Did Judas repent? Or, as I believe we see played out in court day after day, Judas was sorry he was caught and exposed for a thief and devil when he presented false airs as the most trusted deciple of the twelve, even trusted with their purse. He could no longer play the faithful deciple in public for all the people to take notice of him. Jesus exposed him for what he is, his gig was up. But I see no repentence, only remorse he was caught and exposed just as Esau could not humble himself unto repentance either even with all his tears. I believe Paul, as usual, has a clear voice on this issue and the outcomes of sorrow of Peter and Judas tells the entire story. Yes, both were made sorrowful, but only one repented: II Corinthians 7:For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season. 9 Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
