"Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." (1 John 3:9) A recent post appeared which seemed to lead folks to the conclusion that Christians CAN commit sin. That conclusion comes in spite of the fact that God's seed cannot bear wicked fruit. That conclusion repudiates our Lord's parables about fig trees and grape vines not bearing each other's fruit. Ever planted a garden? Have you ever planted tomatoes and found corn had sprouted from the seeds? I don't mean "habitually", but ever? Even once? Why is it that some think God's seed will act differently than tomato seeds?
