Eric,
It possible to live without sinning according to the Bible
Disobeying God is sinning. God wants people to obey him and to walk in his will. His will is given as commandments. In Mathew 28:18-20, we see that his commandments are given as the gospel of Jesus Christ to obey. His people will obey and the rebellious people will not obey. There is reward for obeying and punishment for disobeying. "2Thes 1:8 In FLAMING FIRE taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that OBEY NOT THE GOSPEL of our Lord Jesus Christ: Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."

It is true that Paul unequivocally taught Christians that if they sow to please the sinful natures, they will reap destruction as opposed to eternal life.

Galatians 6:8 says "For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life."

This is what true sanctification is all about.
---Anne on 2/7/09


Romans 6:16: "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? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness."
Santification comes from shunning evil by endeavoring to serve righteousness.

Nana, We are set free, free from the slavery of sin. Then you said:

"First, these are two different things, the saints and the faithful, thus not all are saints. If the Cross set man "free from sin" , then , Paul was not aware of that revelation judging by his Gospel say, as in Ephesians 5.
---Nana on 2/3/09"

Saints and the faithful are the same people. The reason you are mistaken is that we didn't become sinless, we are free from the slavery of sin we use to be in. Our hearts have been changed, and a new disposition has accured. We are a new creation, created in Christ Jesus. We are justified, being sanctified, and will be glorified when we get new sinless bodies prepared for eternity with Christ.
---MarkV. on 2/4/09


"Our identity is saint. Flesh and blood will always do things sinful, BUT, Are we not set free from sin through the Cross?"

Somebody else may benefit (not you duane, mima and markv) from reading Ephesians which is addressed to "the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus". First, these are two different things, the saints and the faithful, thus not all are saints. If the Cross set man "free from sin" , then , Paul was not aware of that revelation judging by his Gospel say, as in Ephesians 5.

Let us remind ourselves of this scripture 1 first John 1:8 ,"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." This Scripture would seem to imply that sin is impossible to escape from as long as we are in our natural bodies. Forgiveness for sin is freely provided. But as the scripture states we must be careful not to deceive ourselves and believe we are sinless while in our fleshly bodies.
---mima on 2/3/09

Forgiveness for sin is provided,"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."v9, which you fail to quote!
---Ruben on 2/3/09


-duane I completely agree with your post on this question.
---mima on 2/3/09


Yes, all HAVE sinned. BUT wait! Were we not born again? Does the new creation sin? Who are we? Saints or sinners? Our identity is saint. Flesh and blood will always do things sinful, BUT, Are we not set free from sin through the Cross? Thats why we needed the Cross and thats why we needed a new life.
Thats why we can have salvation. All we have to do is believe in HIM.

When Jesus makes a statement like, "go and sin no more" nothing else can be expected of Him. Jesus will never tell someone go and sin a little, or a lot. He will never go against His very nature of holiness, for He is God who hates sin, and died for the sin of those who place their faith in Him and His works.
---MarkV. on 2/3/09


Can you come up with more ideas and thoughts, on this subject, Anne and I, are doing our best to be faithful, and write the truth, your help would be wonderful.
---TRU-DOG on 1/31/09

Sure. Let's see......

Jesus came to save us FROM our sin - not IN our sin!

God hates sin, but man loves it. If you love someone, you will at least try to stop doing what they hate!

If God could merely legislate that our sin no longer mattered, then Jesus need not have suffered and died on our behalf!

Satan is the father of sin. Are you his child?
---jerry6593 on 2/3/09


"In these two verses (John 5:14, John 8:11) Jesus told two people to go and sin no more. Would the Lord tell someone to do something that was impossible? No."
-------------------------------------------
I don't think we should take it out of context. He was encouraging them to stop their particular sin of a sexual or adultery nature. Yes, we can repent of one particular sin and never do it again, but I don't think it is possible to stop all possible sins from happening. Eventually we are bound to fail in some other fashon - even if it is a sin of ommission.
---obewan on 2/3/09


Suzie,
Also 1 Corinthians, chapter 10:13.
---Nana on 2/2/09


- Is it possible To Not Sin - Yes.

In these two verses (John 5:14, John 8:11) Jesus told two people to go and sin no more. Would the Lord tell someone to do something that was impossible? No.

Be Perfect: (2 Cor 13:11, Phillipians 3:15, 2 Tim 3:17, James 1:4)
Be Holy: Lev 11:44-45, Ephesians 1:4, 5:27, Rev 22:11)

Lev 11:45
For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt,
to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

Why would God require them to be holy under an imperfect system (animal sacrifices) and now not require people to be holy with His Holy Spirit available to us?
---Suzie on 2/2/09


MIC: "Frances...People in the dark ages worshipped anything that crawled gave light or Pleasure.They did not know better after the coming of Jesus the advancement in the world happened with leaps and Bounds.The idols of yesterday are "not" the idols of to day..."

On the contrary, people are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. They love, they hate, they worship the same things. Man has worshipped idols for over six thousand years and they will continue to worship idols unitl the return of Jesus. They have their stone idols, their wooden idols, their metal idols. They worship one or more of the created things (as the Wiccas do) but not the creator. Yes, the idols of yesterday are the same idols today.

As for "works"...

Faith does not follow works, but works surely follow faith. For it's written that faith without works is dead faith.

As for "being possible not to sin"...

Yes, it is possible. With God, all things are possible. If Jesus can do it so can people for he fullfilled the law.

As for "attending a church"...

How can you belong to a church when we ARE the church? Denominational (and so-called non-denominational) churches (having their own traditions, ways of living, and interpretations of the bible) are a creation of Satan.
---Steveng on 2/2/09


Mark V.~ I don't agree with many Calvinist teachings as being in accordance to the Bible, so I do not follow the 'Westminster Confessions.' Thank you anyways.

The teachings of John Wesley make the most Biblical sense to me, but thank you for sharing.
---Anne on 2/2/09


Anne,2: The Westmister Confessions of faith acknowledges that there is such a thing as false assurance. And this false assurance is derived from an incorrect view of salvation or an incorrect assumption about one's personal faith. But that false assurance is not for genuine born again believers. That is why when I answer concerning believers I try to add, "Truely born again" or "genuine believers" so that others don't misunderstand and get confuse. The Apostle Paul calls us to purse assurance with diligence, it is assurance of our election, which translates into an assurance of our salvation. Paul exhort us to the extend, "If you do these things" He says, "You will never stumble"
---MarkV. on 2/2/09


Caleb Burge, says: "If the sentiment be, that Christ's righteousness is transferred to the believer so as to become his righteousness, it is believed to be utterly, without foundation, Righteousness, as well as sin, must be entirely a personal thing, in such a sense that it cannot be transferred... Essentially it consists in his love to God and other beings, and is as unalienably his, as is any attribute of his nature. Is it even possible that the actions which Christ performed while here on earth, in which his righteousness in part consists, should be so transferred from him to believers as to become actions which they have performed?"

Alan~ Of course he is criticized since he is one of the few in this wicked lying day that is actually striving to be faithful to the entire word of God, and not just bits and pieces of His Word. Jesus was highly ridiculed as well, but it did not stop Him from proclaiming the entire word of God, and refusing to live a lie.

Alan, I believe from what I read from you, that you are not someone who is easily brainwashed by deceptions of man. Please seek this out carefully before drawing a quick conclusion. Thanks. You will see this man is not hiding the truth of God, or twisting it.

Mark V.~ I know you have your views, and I know you are a considerate person. I don't really know how to explain any further to you, since your heart is very set in a certain way.

I believe in reading the word of God in it's entirety, and not just pieces and bits as is so popular to do in churches of our day. Many churches are to blame for the state of the world today since they are cowardly and not teaching all the truths of God's word. They want to 'man pleasers,' and not 'God pleasers.'

I refuse to live a lie. (P.S. I don't believe in salvation by works, and never ever have.)
---Anne on 2/1/09


Charles G. Finney, says: The doctrine of an imputed righteousness, or that Christ's obedience to the law was accounted as our obedience, is founded on a most false and nonsensical assumption, to wit, that Christ owed no obedience to the law in his own person, and that therefore his obedience was altogether a work of supererogation, and might be made a substitute for our own obedience, that it might be set down to our credit, because he did not need to obey for himself.

Anne ... I have never heard of Dan Corner, so googled him.

There are many sites by him, many praising him, and many criticising him.

Quite interesting!

It is clear His theology is not universally regarded as being biblical!
---alan8566_of_UK on 2/1/09


Sister Anne, I don't question your faith. Your relationship with God is your relationship. I only question what you imply about works. I believe every explanation has been given already concerning works. Works don't save. God's grace through faith saves. Evidences of works, fruits, sins, not sinning, the fall, and all other explanations have already been talked about.
I am a fighter for Justification by faith alone. The very core of the reformers against the RCC. Orthodox Christians are separated from all other religions in that our salvation is not base on works. Islam, Mormons, Jehovah witnesses, Buddah, and many more are base on works. Those are the basics.
---MarkV. on 2/1/09


Tru-Dog~ Thanks, Yes, you and I are trying our best...but I can't get over all the lukewarm gospels out there. It is so evident that we are living in the days of so much unsound doctrine, apostasy, and so much twisting of scripture.

Have you been able to find a faithful church to attend? I'm thinking about trying Dan Corner's online ministry since it is one of the few still faithful to the Bible. How about you?
---Anne on 1/31/09


Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved." Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death spread to all men, because all sinned. 2 Cor 5:10 says we will be recompensed for our deeds good or bad. In Romans 7:14-20 Paul talks about his difficulty with sin which dwells within his flesh. According to the scriptures it is impossible. Jesus was without sin!

MarkV, Good and Bad works are not properly sin, we are judged and rewarded by our own works, that are good and bad in the sense, that they are not as perfect, as they should be, it is impure in some respect, without it being sinful.

Caleb Burge, says: If by Christ's righteousness being imputed to believers for their justification, be not meant that his righteousness is so transferred to them as to become their righteousness, but that God views and represents them as righteous, by virtue of the righteousness of Christ, then the inquiry which arises is, whether God do not view and represent things precisely as they are? Can he view things any otherwise than as they are in reality? If he can, what evidence have we that he does not view the bread and wine used in the sacramental supper as being the real body and blood of Christ? And if he ever represent any thing different from what it really is, what ground can there be for confidence in his representations?

Mark V. ~ I love the Lord with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength. God put that love for Him inside my heart, and I'm forever grateful. I don't love Him because I feel forced to, but because I want to more than anything and He is everything to me. Good day to you!
---Anne on 1/31/09


Mark V. ~ I would never think in a million years I deserved God's love or to enter heaven. God gets ALL the glory no doubt. We live for Him because He means everything to us. He is my motivation and inspiration through all my life.
---Anne on 1/31/09


Anne,
We all know, that works are meaningless unless they are in good faith in this world and in the next. We also know that good works will always come FROM faith. Will good works always follow faith? Of course!
If there are no works of God or man following faith, then he has no faith or is lacking. We must believe in something, which in turn makes us work for that cause or trust in anothers work for that cause.
When it comes to salvation, I trust(faith) in the work of the Cross. Not my work, so I can boast, but HIS work. I truely rest in HIM(HIS work on the Cross) when it comes to my salvation. I will then work out(not work for)my salvation through faith.

Anne, the song you mention implies works again:
"Someone standing before God proclaiming all his good deeds,"didn't I do all this things, did everything you said for me to do?" While the song sounds good to all who hear it, because everyone that loves Christ feels in someway the same as the person singing the song, but implies he deserves to enter heaven.
And no one deserves anything. That God has mercy is not base on what we deserve.

Jesus and Paul etc. fought and died for the causes of God...and we are called to do that too. These are the works that verify our true faith in God. Let's all do the same!!
---Anne on 1/30/09
We are called to live for Christ. Many do die for Christ.
---MarkV. on 1/31/09


Duane~ Have you ever heard the song by Bryan Adams "Everything I do I do it for you." When I listen to it, it reminds me of the vast zealousness a true Christian should have for doing the awesome works of God now that they are saved and forgiven, and full of God's Spirit.

Some of the words of the song say:

"Take me as I am
take my life
I would give it all, I would sacrifice...
Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do
I do it for You."

Jesus and Paul etc. fought and died for the causes of God...and we are called to do that too. These are the works that verify our true faith in God. Let's all do the same!!
---Anne on 1/30/09


Duane~A Christian is called to do much more than 'rest' in faith. The Bible says the true Christian must diligently do works.

1. A soldier in a battle(Phil.2:25, IITim 2:3-4)

2. a runner in a long distance race (Acts 20:24,ICor.9:24, Gal 5:7)

3. A worker in the vineyard (Mt 20:1-16)

4. A fruit tree required to bear good fruit (Jn 15:5-6)

5. A witness of Jesus (Acts 1:8,22, IITim 2:2, Rev.2:13)

6. A wrestler against the forces of darkness (Eph 6:12)

7. A servant/slave of God (I Thes 1:9,Acts 4:29)



---Anne on 1/30/09


Duane~ (part 2)~ Christians are not merely people resting in faith. We are to have a passionate, zealous, fruitful life as a Christian full of Good works. We are not to be sitting around being lukewarm.

Christians are likened to salt that can possibly lose its saltiness (Mt 5:13) and virgins that can have their lamps run out of oil and stop burning (v.12) In the end such foolish virgins will hear Jesus say, 'I don't know you.'

Make every effort to enter through the narrow door (Lk. 13:24)

Peace, and let's be zealous to the end!

What are the works we must do? What did Jesus say?

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me" (Matthew 25:44-45)

Mark V.~Did Jesus ever teach that once you are saved you cannot lose your salvation? We are assured eternal security, yes, but ONLY to those who remain in the faith until the end. To those who OBEY Him and OVERCOME.

Matt.7:21 "Not all who say to Me 'Lord,Lord' shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he that DOETH the will of my Father in Heaven."

Those who trust in the OSAS doctrine to save them are like the Pharisees who trusted that as children of Abraham they were safe and secure. OSAS students often trust in this false security and willfully return to their sinful vomit & live in disobedience to God and still CLAIM to be children of God, and will not have to pay the wages of sin which is DEATH!

Ruben, sin has separated all people from God. With repentance comes forgiveness, and all those who are saved already, are not under the penalty of the law. They are under Grace, united with Christ.
---MarkV. on 1/28/09


Mark* Ruben, the answer is, if you are saved by grace through faith, God will forgive your unrepented sins.

Show me in scripture where it says, we are saved by grace through faith only and where God forgives our repented sins!

Mark* You cannot positively know every single sin. Since sin is alway sin outside of the RCC teachings.

And since sin separate us from God, and "nothing unclean enter Heaven" and through out the bible it tells us to "Repent". Paul tells us to "work out our salvation with fear and trembling ".

Frances :-You are a smart lady but you must move with the advancing Times.People in the dark ages worshipped anything that crawled gave light or Pleasure.They did not know better after the coming of Jesus the advancement in the world happened with leaps and Bounds.The idols of yesterday are "not" the idols of to day in any RCC church, or elsewhere. Just because you say so, does not make it so, but you may retain the thought in your mind as it is false.The idols of today arethe love of the world is opposed to the love of God.These are the idols of this new era which we claim are necessities but in reallity are the icons of out existance -Why else did Jesus Give us a new commandment "Love your neighbour as yourself"

Idol worship is a sin that Catholics won't admit to, give up, or repent of. In the O.T. it inevitably led to sacrificing their children. We have wars, which is the same result of the same sin. We believe the Vatican, we believe the controlled press, we vote for the mind controlled leaders. Even a third party leader, check out Ron Paul for Catholic connections. Until idol worship is repented of, God will not allow you to see the truth. He Himself will send deceiving spirits to let you believe lies. Read Ezekiel 16. Spiritual fornication will be allowed until you are almost destroyed.

Mic~ Good post...Yes, like you said, how can we be saved until we truly repent of all our filthy sins, and live our lives now altogether to the glory of God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit?

Turning from sinful ways is something we do AFTER salvation.Duane:Friend you put the cart before the horse.How do you get saved with sin on your soul if you say what you do.Nothing defiled enters Heaven which is salvation!!If so then you are in the wrong heaven after death!!Sorry to burst your bubble.I mean this in kindness.Just let me remind you Jesus, even when He ascends into heaven and he was pure-without sin!You reside in an antiquated paradise of belief, on the broad road that leads to destruction.To gain grace we must strive to be Like Him who said "Follow me", then we are perfect like His Heavenly Father is perfect.

Ruben, the answer is, if you are saved by grace through faith, God will forgive your unrepented sins. You cannot positively know every single sin. Since sin is alway sin outside of the RCC teachings. While in the RCC you minor sins you go to purgatory where others can pray for your salvation or pay alms. Not found outside of the RCC. At least I don't think so.
---MarkV. on 1/27/09


Ruben,
The answer is yes...
It never says to repent of sin to be saved. It does say to repent towards God.
If we had to repent of sin to be saved, there would be no one saved. The only sin to repent of is unbelief in HIM. Turning from sinful ways is something we do after salvation.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.(1JHN 1:9)

"Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works, or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent"(Rev 2:5)

Duane what happens if they do not repent?

Ruben, you answered your own question, "What then, shall we sin? God forbid" While you are save you are not given a license to sin as many here suggest. I have never read that anywhere in the Bible. It is something they have contrive to argue against the believers status. They want those who have true faith to doubt because they have assurity of that faith. There is no doubt on the promises of God. What He says will be done, will be done. Even His sustaing power will sustain to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor. 1:7-9).

I didn't ask a question, but I will now, Does Christ forgive our unrepented sins? Y or N

Ruben, surprise you are here answering. I hope I can help you. There is only one way to heaven, and that is through Jesus Christ. Rejection of Christ as your Lord an Savior permits you to continue the path you are in already, going to hell. If you are saved already, no one sin will send you to hell, for all men sin, even believers and no one sin will send you to hell once you are saved.
---MarkV. on 1/23/09


"What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.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?(Romans 6:15-16)

Ooops! Let's look at this: "however, if our heart is not penitent and sincere, God will not be forgiving, and you will go to hell, if you are not converted again."---This was an incomplete thought, and is contradictory to the first part of my statement, it should read, "however, if we make a conscious choice to do wrong, and our heart is not penitent and sincere, God will not be forgiving, and you will go to hell, if you are not converted again."
---TRU-DOG on 1/26/09


Duane, free from the slavery of sin. The habitual practice we use to be in. All sin and come short of the glory of God, for the wages of sin is death, and all people will die a physical death, but to the believer he is promised eternal life, once the body is glorified on the Day of the Lord we will be presented spotless for the righteousness of Christ will be our cover before God.

The Christian perfection is about the heart, which is the intent or motive of the will, -I don't think, if you sin inadvertently, or not on purpose, or overtly, it would be culpable or penal, -we are not infinitely jurisprudent, and adjudicate with infinite precision or exactness, however, if our heart is not penitent and sincere, God will not be forgiving, and you will go to hell, if you are not converted again.

Frank cos, Let' look at this: "In a word, NO. We're human, we make mistakes"---Mistakes are not properly sin's that incurr penalty, we will make many mistakes in our life time, that is a given.
---TRU-DOG on 1/24/09


*I would concede that we do a lot of things out of a lack of knowledge or because we are unaware, however, this is not the same as a conscious choice to do wrong, there is a difference between sin's of "ignorance", and, sin's that are overt, -to not know or to be ignorant and unaware, is not sin that incurrs penalty, they are non-penal, because we are not infinitely juisprudent, we could do things, and be imperfect in this sense, God is not trying to get us on a technicality
