1 John 3:9 (New International Version) 9No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. 1 John 3:9 (New American Standard Bible) 9No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. At what point is it that we are practicing sin or even continuing to sin? I don't believe maturity comes when we believe a certain belief system that some think is right. Maturity is when this happens Hebrews 6 1Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death,[Or from useless rituals] and of faith in God, 2instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3And God permitting, we will do so. We should be past continue repenting to a point it is nothing but a useless ritual and relaying down the foundation of faith in God, you should have it. Instruction on how to baptize, about the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment you should know how and it. Someone who is mature shouldn't be relaying down the foundation have faith in God because he doesn't have to concerned about it any more or is that he should be just doing it? If he doesn't have to concerned about faith in God why does the writer of Hebrew say this earlier? Hebrews 3: 12See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. 14We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
