1 John 1:9I have sinned I sudduced a woman. What do I do. I feel terrible. I have been saved. is it possible for the truely saved to sin. And if they do sin what does this mean
Brother, I've dealt with a similar thing in my past. Lust is probably the most difficult of all temptations and no wonder why satan uses sensuality everywhere to hinder people's lives and cause destruction.I have sinned I sudduced a woman. What do I do. I feel terrible. I have been saved. is it possible for the truely saved to sin. And if they do sin what does this mean
Agreed. But let us review the tense and context here. "Keeps on sinning," and "continue sinning," allude to an active tense; thus one must apply the same active tense in the context of the scripture and passage. This is referring to the "present tense," or state that is brought about by "action," dispensed in the active tense; in other words, by the actions contrary to God (IE,sin,) we reflect that our Father is not God who wills otherwise; but the enemy who wills sin. This verse has a dual focus and application: A). That no one who has God as the Father keeps on sinning. This refers though to intentional and wanton sin, unrepentant and continued sin, conscious and intentional sin; not the tendency to fall prey to the nature of the flesh and occasionally fall into sin. B) The concept that when God is one's father; one cannot continue sin. This specifically is contingent upon the scripture being understood in context, relative to its "tense." The principle is not the impossibility of sin if God is one's Father; but that it is impossible to (in that moment,) be a child of God while yet sinning...lol. It is like willingly adopting ourselves out to the other team for the duration of said sin; through conscious undertaking of things contrary to God's nature.
CHAD: I agree. This statement is not only opposed directly to scripture but belies its own deception in so promoting the false ideology it professes. Paul even struggled until his dying days with sin; though he was perhaps the most Aramaically righteous,(by the law mind you,) Pharisee for years, and at the peak of his Christian maturity...still struggling with sin. Jesus was the only flesh to ever walk the earth and remain sinless. i would further point out the words "i would stop sinning if I were you"...well would you also stop sinning if you were you? This is a condemning and superior manner my friend, and you are professing things contrary to scripture. I would advise caution here.I have sinned before but never went back to doing it again...christ has some words in the bible somewhere about those who continue to sin. i would stop sinning if I were you...
