Do Christians continue to sin?

Only if they want to. I am not trying to start a war of words or leave anyone confused.  I’m just trying to do away with the false doctrine that past sins, present sins and future sins are forgiven, as well as present the truth of the gospel of Christ, that He came to destroy the works of the devil and to take away sins, not just to cover them, as did the blood of animals, but to deliver us from them by giving us newness of life in the Holy Spirit, who in turn guides us into all truth. If our future sins are forgiven, there would be no need to repent of them for they would have already been taken care of, yet the word of God says we must repent of all sins.

We were crucified with Christ, how shall we who died to sin still live in it? (Romans 6:2). It is next to blasphemy to say that we cannot stop sinning, for that is contrary to the gospel of Christ. 

The body of Christ will attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to Christ, in spite of those who say we will always sin. 

This will be done by destroying speculations and lofty things raised up against the knowledge of God, and by the members of the church learning obedience through the things which they suffer, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God, 2 Corinthians 10:5; 1 Peter 4:1-2.

I know this for a fact, because the blood of our Lord is more powerful than the blood of animals; the body of Christ, that is, the church, is more mighty than the body of flesh; and the bride of Christ will be presented to the Lamb of God without blemish.


All who learn obedience will be present at the marriage supper of the Lamb; all who don’t will be spit out of His mouth. 

“So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth,” Revelation 3:16.

‘Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are true words of God,”’Revelation 19:9.
