Discussion for 1 John 3

  • A disciple
    Randy; "Shall we continue in sins that grace may abound? God forbid! How shall we who are dead to sin live any longer therein?" Jesus came to die on the cross, so we could be released from the bondage and debt of sin, and to REALLY set us free. "NOW ARE YOU CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU." "He that commits sins is the servant of sin, and the servant abides not for ever."
  • Randy
    Who are those who 'do not sin.....cannot sin'? Paul says if I am partaker of God's grace and am thankful for it, why am I still judged a sinner? Did Jesus take away all of our sin, or are we still sinners?
  • A disciple
    To Randy from 7/25, "What is sin?" Sin is literally, Missing the mark. Sin is knowing to do good, and not doing it. Sin is spiritual error, wandering away, deviation, disobedience, lying. Sin is moral error, foolishness, poor judgment, acting out or speaking (or thinking) so as to give a misleading representation of one's self or his actions; usually to make himself appear good and without blame.
  • Wayne
    He that knoweth to do good and doeth it not is sin.
  • Wayne
    Whatsoever is not of faith is sin. Romans 14:23
  • Wayne
    He that commit sin is of the devil for the devil sinneth from the beginning, for this purpose the son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin, forHis seed remaineth in him and he cannot commit sin because he is born of God. We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not.
