All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. Romans 3:23 After a person is saved, is that person still a sinner? If so, how can a person who is indwelt by the Holy Spirit still be a sinner? Is the state of being a sinner separate from the act of sinning? Or are they one and the same? Also, remember Paul said " sinner of whom I am chief." Speaking in present tense, not past. If our sins are washed by the Blood, are we still sinners? Is a child of the King still a sinner? How can a person be a saint and a sinner at the same time? Isn't that contradictory? If we WERE dead in our trespasses and sins, but have been "quickened" by His Spirit, are we still sinners? If we are dead, buried, and resurrected with Christ, are we still sinners? Justification and sanctification - the difference? Thoughts?
