    I sin every day. If not by commission, then by ommission...

    I am a sinner saved by grace, but nevertheless, still a sinner.

    If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    I considered posting that verse if anyone proclaimed they were sin free. Maybe I am misunderstanding, but some BBers seem to walk a fine line. They say outright they do not sin, almost proclaiming if you are born again then you can't continue to sin. Or continue in sin, not sure of the difference. Yet somehow they backtrack into "labeling" what I consider sin as something else.
    Maybe I am not making sense, oh well. I am not perfect either.
    It is refreshing to see so many acknowledge they do sin :)


    Blessings,

    Joe

    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    1 John 1:8

    God knew we would sin. That's why He gave us I John 1:9.

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    As far as I know there was only one person who never sinned and His name is NOT ┬žue...

    Actually, I have a divine revelation that people with only three letters in their first name are automatically forgiven by god for each and every sin committed :thumbs:

    I voted no...

    Ro 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

    Your quote has nothing to do with sinning. Rather, the condemnation that sin brings. That, Christ has freed us from. But, as long as we are in these fleshly tents, we will sin. Our glorification is our only escape from this fact.

    What is Sin? It is usually defined as transgression against God or transgression against the law (1 Jn 3:4). Are we under the law? If not, how do we transgress something we are not under?

    Ro 4:15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.

    Heb 7:11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
    12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
    13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
    14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
    15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
    16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
    17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
    18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
    20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
    21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)
    22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
    23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
    24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
    25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
    26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
    27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
    28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

    Yes, I have sinned (Rom 3:23, 1 Jn 1:10) but I am now dead to sin and live under grace;

    Ro 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

    I think everyone sins. "If we say we have no sin, we decieve ourselves and the truth is not in us."

    I think you have confused God's Law with The Law. God's Law is written on our hearts in our conscience...The Law was handed down to the Israelites. In Genesis, men knew what sin was well before the mosaic law. Satan was correct in telling Eve that if she ate from the tree, she would be like God in knowing good from evil. Every human since knows good from evil (Gods Law) instinctively.
