The question of sin

Casalis's picture

Would someone please answer this question... Jesus came to free us from sin but sin still remains a struggle in the lives of His church. How exactly did He free us from sin as He said in John 10? Surely God can give abundant grace to His children so that they sin no more but its as if though He holds back that grace and allows the struggle though He hates sin.. Could someone find a consensus here?

Even though there is admonition and provision to return to God and to remain there, I have never found in the writings of this new covenant a provision to remain in sin. Nor have I found that desire in the heart of God, for sin is that which is opposed to God. No one can have fellowship with God and be in sin. Neither have I found the Blood of Jesus to be a cover-up, or that which hides sin from God. The Blood cleanses us from all unrighteousness. It cleanses the conscience. How can a man sin and not be conscious of it. God looks at the heart. I am concerned that almost all of professing Christians have been deceived(I suppose willfully) by false teachings. "Christian Sects"(now there's an oxymoron) are founded by man, and are based in and promote the self-centeredness of man. The masses gravitate toward these institutions and teachings because they desire an alternative to "laying down their life".

Love seeketh not its own. They loved not their life even unto death. Love fulfills the law. Greater love hath no man, than he lay down his life for a friend. Love obeys God. He that is born of God loves God for God is Love. Oh, that we would love God, then there would be no need for any more discussion about sin.
