    We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not. So if you are born again, you are expected to not sin nor desire to sin. So quit.

    No Mam. I'm talking about the Girl who had three characters.
    What you talked about is a character.
    Read this verse. (Ephesians 5:31) For this cause shall a man leave his father and Mother. And shall be joined unto his wife. And they two shall be one flesh. The message of this verse is that. When a man became husband. He and his wife shall be one. In unity not in number.
