    What does it mean to sin?

    1 John 2:3-5 (KJV) 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 1 John 3:4 (KJV) 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 1 John 3:8 (KJV) 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
  2. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (KJV) 24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. Philippians 2:16 (KJV) Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Philippians 3:14 (KJV) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 4:7-8 (KJV) 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Hebrews 12:1 (KJV) 1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, James 1:12 (KJV) 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Revelation 3:11 (KJV) 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

    So are all those who died under the law of Moses dead and not saved ? About Jesus Jesus was of the seed of Abraham and David, so he was human, in the likeness of sinful flesh. Some say he was tempted in all points as we are, so he must had a sin nature to be tempted. If the sin nature doctrine is true - Jesus was a spotted lamb.

    Just thinking The topic is can a person stop sinning I have read its no, but when you get to heaven and have a new body, you no longer will sin because you won't have the sin nature body. Here is the thinking part. What cause the fallen angels to fall in their heavenly body ? So how will our heavenly body keep us from falling ?

    About willful sin. Written to the believers Hebrews 10:26 (KJV) 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, Hebrews 6:4-6 (KJV) 4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. This is dangerous, what if we are not willing to make an effort do that which right . If our faith brings grace, what if our faith becomes dead ? Is there any scriptures in the bible that show we can lose grace ? So it is best to repent and change. What if we repent and no intention to change, will God forgive us ?

    If we don't remember what we were delivered from how can we praise him for that ? I do not think he will erase our memories. Thank you for your concern bro.

    It was said But even Paul said he had not attained perfection but he pressed on to the high calling of Jesus. We will never be perfect as He is until we get to heaven. But Paul did make mentioned that someone was perfect. Phil.3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Hebrews 13:20-21 (KJV) 20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV) 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Seem like we need to be perfect(blameless) at the coming of our Lord. It Would take a miracle from God for us if we could become sinless in this life, it would really take the Almighty God's power to do this. Can he do it ? Woe ! Is Satan stronger tempting our flesh than God giving us the victory over the flesh ? huumm

    Does sin and repent , sin and repent, sin and repent, sin and repent does it change us. Didn't Jesus come to fix the problem of sin and repent ? not just look the other way. What is sin ? Where does it come from ? Why does it happen ? Jesus said "What come from the heart defiles the man" Matthew 15:18-19 (KJV) 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) 7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he 2 Corinthians 7:1 (KJV) 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. James 4:8 (KJV) 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 1 John 1:9 (KJV) 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. How does the cleansing work on our heart ? Ephesians 5:26 (KJV) 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, Forgiveness of our sins or washing our sin away doesn't change us . We are what we are until we are changed. Jesus can do that if we want to change. Matthew 5:8 (KJV) 8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

    How could God condemned some of his NT church people if they become not accountable for their sins. He chastise Heb. 12 and tell them to repent or else. Example Rev. 2 and 3

    Was Paul talking about when he was the in flesh or in the spirit, read it carefully. The law was weak for the flesh. Did he say he was now in the spiritual in next chapter not in the flesh. So he was weak and in sin under the law before he found Jesus for his help to overcome sin. As for 1John you must keep asking for giveness. Jesus will keep washing your heart with his words so we will have a righteous heart that will stop you from sinning anymore against him.

    Trying not to...That does not change anything about what the bible talk abou perfection or about overcoming the flesh. Sin is still sin and it doesn't change the death penalty. If we sin against God we are contrary to his spirit.

    Those are sinful stuff that is not allowed in our life. Can't take that kind of stuff to heaven with us, from what I read in the bible.

    Under the OT before Jesus came the OT saints had laws. OT Saints were charged for their own sins they committed. They had a choice to do right but they were weak in the flesh. No power in the laws to live above sin. Till Jesus came. They went to the grave because they came short of the promise, as mentioned in Hebrews 11. The death penalty was passed on same as Adam. We sin we die as Adam did. OT Saints had a resurrection coming for them. Adam didn't have a sin nature yet he broke the law of God because of his own free will desire. So can we now thru Jesus Christ control our desire in our heart ? If not, what did Jesus do that made it different from the OT saints, he gave us power so we can become perfect, the Mosaic Law couldn't do this. Heb. 10:1

    How much sin can a person have and still make ? If the Lord is taking our heart to heaven and I am still a sinner , I will also be a sinner in heaven. How pure does a heart has to be before it goes to heaven ? So does all good sinners go to heaven ? Is God saying "oh do the best you can I will fix it up here" I thought that is why God sent Jesus to fix it when he came down here to help us get the victory over a sinful life. He also gave us power through the Holy Spirit to overcome. For most believers, sinners goes to heaven, because they never met anybody living above sin, so that is why it must be so.
