When I got saved I don't know wether I knew that I am a sinner or wether I only knew that I had sinned. Does this matter? I mean what happens if you don't really understand what being a sinner means, if you don't have this revelation yet, but when you know that you have sinned? In order to get saved do you have to understand that your nature is sinful and that you're carnal and all that? I don't think I had this. Understanding what being carnal means and what the flesh is and all this stuff came much later in my case. The stuff which Paul described in Romans 7 for example. I didn't know this when I got saved. In order to realize how sinful you are you first of all have to be sensitive to sin and you're not very sensitive to sin when you become saved, are you? In my case I simply knew that I had sinned because I had done things which were clearly not correct. To know this I didn't have to be very sensitive to sin.
