Part 3.Peter2:
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

Part 1. Romans 6:Read the whole Ch.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
1Tim 5:20 Them that sin REBUKE before all, that others also may FEAR.
NO WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT SAY"HATE THE SIN BUT LOVE THE SINNER!

Part 2.,1John3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins, and in him is no sin.
6 WHOSOEVER abideth in him sinneth NOT: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither KNOWN him.
7 Little children, LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU: he that doeth righteousness IS righteous, even as HE IS righteous.
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.

Romans 7:15- "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do,I do not do; but what I hate, I do." See, even Paul had trouble with sin. If such a one as he sinned, why would we not? God knows we're going to sin, so He gave us a way of repentance through Christ. He'll forgive us MORE that seventy times seven.

Although we are human, and have sin, God wants us to make an effort to stop sinning. Repentance means to turn away from sin. We are all made of three parts: body, soul (mind, will, emotions), and spirit. When you got saved, your spirit got saved. Try asking God to save and santify your body, and your soul (mind, will, emotions), and to take away the desire to sin.

Consider your words-"we were born in sin..." That alone answers your question. We're born imperfect and will never be perfect as long as we're on this earth. Just remember to hate the sin but love the sinner (this includes yourself).

Read the book of Romans!!!!!!!!!!!!!infact read your bible will be a good start.

The answer to your question is found in Romans, chapter 6 (the whole chapter.) The nation of Israel made the mistake in the O.T. of what is known as the cycle of sin.
They would sin, give a form of repentance, only to committ the same sin again. What happened was, they didn't really repent - they were only sorry they got caught in their sin. Be sure to read Romans chapter 6. Don't be like Israel of the O.T.

The works of the flesh are manefest which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanliness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emmulation, wrath, strife, sedition, harrasees, envyings, murder, drunkenness, revelings and such like; of the which I tell you before as I have also told you in timepast that those which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Gal 5:19-21.

Bruce, if Paul's struggle with sin was before his salvation, why did he not use the past tense when writing? Why does he not say "I did not understand.." or "What I wanted to do, I did not do"...etc. He was speaking of himself right then and there. There is always the struggle. Do you not struggle, my friend? Do you not find yourself falling for the tricks and lies of the enemy? I do. Even knowing Who my strength is, I fall. If you don't, then you must be an extraordinary person.

Ann,
I did not take you to mean that.

Apparently I was not too clear about what I was saying either. I was not agreeing that Paul continued to struggle with sin. Just the opposite. He concludes his thought with the triumphant I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Christ WE ARE FREE from the law of sin and death. 8:2. His struggle with sin was BEFORE his salvation
---Bruce5656 on 7/5/05


Bruce, if you took my reply to mean we can continue on sinning because we'll be forgiven, then it was taken wrong, and I apologize for misleading. What I mean is, if such a man of God as Paul, who saw Christ face to face, struggled with sin, then why should we, who may be lesser in faith & knowledge than he, think we won't be tempted & misled. Of course, we have to rely on Him constantly to keep our thoughts & actions holy.

Christians sin because we live in a body that has not been regenerated yet, which still has to exist in a sinful, fallen world. But, the good news is our spirits have been regenerated because we have Christ's nature living in us. The best way to deal with our tendency to sin is to renew our minds with God's Word-the Bible. When we use God's standards to replace our old negative, sinful thought patterns, we will make better choices and sin less often.

PART ONE:
Ann,
As Eloy indicated, you need to read the context. Keep reading to the end of the chapter where, in keeping with v.15 Paul laments Romans 7:24, "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" His own answer? 25, "I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the

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

Even if Paul did continue to struggle with sin, his experience would not justify our doing so. I Cor. 10:13

When Jesus died on the cross He sent the Holy Spirit to us.This means that if we accept we're a sinner and ask Jesus into our heart we'll be annointed by the Holy Spirit.Does this mean we'll never again sin?No!We're in the flesh.This does not give you the right to sin because you know it'll be forgiven! If you know it's wrong, then don't do it! If you aren't sure pray! If you sin, repent and don't do it again! Jesus didn't die to give us a get out of sin free card, He died so that we might have life!
---zoe5647 on 7/5/05


What I feel Ann left out is that you MUST resist sin with ALL OF YOU.

If you have the Holy Spirit you can win!
Pray daily and you'll change your heart and better be able to stand in the face of temptation.
---Pharisee on 7/5/05


You must get born-again into Christ. Sin-supporters should not corrupt scripture, but keep verses in context by quoting the whole passage. Paul said he did not continue to sin after his salvation. Please read Romans chapter 6. Do we continue sinning after obtaining salvation? "God forbid, How will we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? For the law of the Spirit of the life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death." Romans 6:2; 8:2. Please read I John chapter 3.
