    Romans 8:23, Christians are not to walk after the flesh but are to mortify the deeds of the body by the Spirit. Christ came to give us power over the flesh and all sin. If one is a Christian, one must take all sinful things to Jesus to b eradicated. Christ can remove all sin, 1 John 1st chapter. "And cleanse us from all unrighteousness". "Cleanses us from ALL sin". 2nd chap Walk as He walked.

    "But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness...but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;" What are the things most common to us, that make us grieved with ourselves and not well pleasing to God? We know from this and other Scriptures that God keeps us from sinning according to how we walk in our integrity.
