No, I was a sinner. Now, because of the gospel, I obey my Father in all things at all times. This is not a doctrine, this is my testimony.Then you are a sinner and by the very doctrine you preach you have condemn yourself.
And a sin not ceased is a sin not forgiven. That's the line of thought.Am not following this line of thought .... we are all sinners, all condemned by our sins. It's only by God's mercy and grace that our sins are forgiven.
And what is the difference? Perhaps you need to include the rest of the verse you quoted.There's a difference between those who overtly and continually practice a sinful lifestyle and those who get caught in sin occasionally and repent (If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins 1Jn 1:9).
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9.
Does not ALL mean ALL? If you have been cleansed from ALL unrighteousness, how much is remaining? Granted, when one becomes a believer, they may still be involved in things that they genuinely may not be aware of as sinful. But that is not held against them until the light comes and they choose to remain in it. In which case there is no more sacrifice for them as it is written.
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? Heb. 10:26-29.
These things are as simple as 1+1=2 when one lives by the Word and not by the satanic "once saved always saved" doctrine.
