View Wesley's Notes for 1 John 1:8
1:8 If we say - Any child of man, before his blood has cleansed us. We have no sin - To be cleansed from, instead of confessing our sins, #1Jo 1:9|, the truth is not in us - Neither in our mouth nor in our heart.

1Jo 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves. To say that we have reached a sinless state in which we no longer need the blood of Christ to cleanse us is a deception. This language is in square opposition to the claims of the "Perfectionists" of all ages.

i believe the word of the LORD, his word is truth and trustworthy, therefore we all have sinned, and sin is yet in our reach, i also believe that we yet sin, but not willingly so to speak, we as believers hate sin, and in our soul exixtence we are cleansed in and from the bllod of JESUS.

If we say we have no sin, we deceive our self and the truth is not in us. This is very true.

Who can claim to be a sinless person while still living in this sinful world? God's eternal word declares that we have all (including Pastor, Bishop, Clerg, Papa,Elder, Reverand & church member) have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.Romans 3:23
