Faithful means God will forgive you every time you repent. Have you sought the license to sin rather than the empowerment to be holy?
Repent before God and ask Him to give you a passion for righteousness. Settle it now: if you have genuinely repented and confessed your sin to the Lord, you stand before God as if you never committed the sin. John Lisa Store Donate. Am I Still a Sinner? By John Bevere. A minister and best-selling author, John delivers messages of uncompromising truth with boldness and passion.

The sin nature affects the immaterial part of man, which consequently affects our outward actions. We sin because we have the nature of sin already in us. Mark is even more specific.
The heart was representative of the innermost being of man. Jesus was affirming what Jeremiah wrote in "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.
David explained that his conception had sin involved.
Our actions only express what our nature is. The sin nature is the basis for all sinful habits. Without understanding the source of sin one cannot understand nor give the solution correctly. The Law is not the answer, it points to the problem, it is diagnostic but it is not the cure. The Bible explains that we are all slaves to sin except for one- Jesus, who did not inherit the sin nature because he was conceived without the aid of a man, formed by God in the womb of a virgin.
This why there was a need to bypass the sin nature of man when He took on human flesh.
Steven Pinker and the Noble Savage
I Jn And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John Only Christ Jesus has the solution no other religion can deal with the fallen nature of man. There are those who claim we are not sinful and think they have been born without sin, they do not understand what sin is and do not know how holy God is. Fools mock at sin, but among the upright there is favor. As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one" for only God is called good. This is why John writes "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Are We Born Sinners?
The Bible tells us that God gave us the way back into a relationship with him, to be born again- spiritually Jn. Being spiritually reborn the sin nature is not removed until we are glorified but we are given a new nature, a renewed mind that rule over it. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members , warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God-- through Jesus Christ our Lord! God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
