1 Do Christians Sin? Let the Scriptures Speak: Jesus Christ is a mighty Savior and His gospel is both glorious and powerful. A truly repentant soul will find in salvation not only forgiveness, but also deliverance from all sin. Yes, a Christian does live free from committing sin! Sadly, most of what is being passed off as the gospel today is no gospel at all. It keeps the people in their sins, and they expect that they cannot be free from them till after they die. This is another gospel and another Jesus and it is foreign to scriptural salvation. Any person who teaches that one can sin and still be a Christian is not of God. These have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof. From such turn away! Dear ones, examine your experience in the light of the scriptures regarding this all-important issue. Your eternal destiny depends upon it. He that committeth sin is of the devil For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil 1 John 3: ) The purpose of Jesus coming was to redeem us from all iniquity Matt. 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Luke 1:68-75 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

2 1 John 3:8 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. 2) Those who have been saved from their sins need not continue to sin and repent Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. John 5:14 Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. Rom. 6:1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. 3) A child of God is able to overcome temptation 1 Cor. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 2 Pet. 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations. 4) After being cleansed by the blood of Jesus, it is possible to stay clean Rom. 6:6-7 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Gal. 5:24 And they that are Christ s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Col. 1:22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight. James. 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

3 1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. Jude 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy. 5) Grace does not cover over sin, but gives power to overcome sin Rom. 6:1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Rom. 6:15 What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Titus 2:11-12 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness. 6) Whoever sins is the servant of sin, not the servant of God John 8:34, 36 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Rom. 6:16-22 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 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. For when ye were the servants of sin,

4 ye were free from righteousness the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 7) Those who sin are spiritually dead Rom. 6:13 But yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead. Rom. 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. Rom. 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death. Eph. 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins. Col. 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins 1 Tim. 5:6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth. 8) True Christians are dead to sin Rom. 6:2 How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Rom. 6:6-7 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Rom. 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Gal. 5:24 And they that are Christ s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 9) The wrath of God abides on those who sin Rom. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness. Rom. 2:8-9 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil.

5 Col. 3:5-6 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience. Eph. 2:2-3 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. Heb. 10:26-27 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. 10) Those that profess to be saved but do not live holy will be surprised at the Judgment Matt. 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 11) Those who sin have no part of the kingdom of God Rom. 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. 1 Cor. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Gal. 5:21 Of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things [the works of the flesh] shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Eph. 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

6 12) Those that turn back to sin lose their salvation Ezk. 33:12-13 The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. Gal. 2:17-18 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 2 Pet. 2:20-22 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 The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. 13) Those who sin cannot see nor know God Matt. 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Matt. 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Heb. 12:14 Holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. 1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth. 1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 1 Jn 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 3 John 11 He that doeth evil hath not seen God.

7 14) Whoever loves the world does not belong to God Eph. 2:2-3 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath. James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 1 John 2:15-16 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 15) God does not hear sinners Psa. 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me. Isa. 1:15-16 And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil. Isa. 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. 1 Pet. 3:10-12 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his

8 ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 16) Christians are not to fellowship those who profess salvation but continue to sin 1 Cor. 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 2 Thess. 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. Eph. 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 1 Tim. 5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all. 2 Tim. 3:2-5 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud unholy lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 John 9-10 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed. 17) Christians are to walk in the Spirit, not in the lust of the flesh Rom. 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Rom. 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. Gal. 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

9 Gal. 5:24 And they that are Christ s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 1 Pet. 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul. 2 Pet. 1:4 Having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 18) By God s power, Christians keep themselves undefiled 2 Cor. 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 1 Thess. 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. 2 Pet. 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness. 2 Pet. 3:14 Be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. 1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 19) Whoever commits sin is of the devil Jn. 8:41-44 Ye do the deeds of your father Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. Eph. 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air. 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.

10 1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 20) Christians follow the example of Christ 1 Pet. 1:15-16 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 1 Pet. 2:21-22 Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth. 1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 21) A holy life does not produce sinful fruit Matt. 7:17-18 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Luke 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Heb. 6:8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing, whose end is to be burned. 22) Christians have an undefiled conscience Acts 23:1 And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day. Acts 24:16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men. 1 Tim. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned.

11 23) It is not what we profess, but what we live that counts Matt. 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 2 Tim. 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him. 24) Those who sin cannot enter heaven John 8:21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come. Rev. 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie. 25) The foundation of God is to depart from all iniquity 2 Tim. 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 26) A Christian is a new creature; old sinful ways are passed away Ezk. 36:26-27 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. 2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

12 27) Salvation brings a heart perfection that was unattainable under the Old Testament Matt. 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Heb. 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did. Heb. 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 28) Those who love God keep His commandments John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me. 1 John 2:3-4 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 29) God does not give commandments that are impossible to obey Matt. 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. John 8:11 And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. 1 Cor. 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not. 1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
