    Now holding a good faith position and walking in love is now the enemy to some.
    This is how kingdoms are brought down through civil war.

    The enemy without is irrelevant it is the enemy within who must be dealt with.
    And why? Because they dare to listen to Jesus and put His words into effect.

    The catholics killed anabaptists, and the protestants killed the anabaptists.
    So it looks like another group have appeared to hate faithful believers in
    Christ, called to follow and be lights in a dark world.

    as for the question, john answered your question in his epistle.

    1 john 3: 6. Whoever sins has never seen him nor known him,

    1 john 3:9 whoever has been born of God does not sin, for his seed remains in him and he can. OT live in sin, because he has been born of God.

    a child of God can not live in sin, it does not mean he will be perfect, he will fall from time to time, like Moses and David and Abraham, and the person in the example you gave, but they will not live in sin as the world.


    So so the answer is no, you can't live in sin if you are truly a child of God, but remember, just because one claims to be a child does not mean they are
    The workers for and those who believe one can lose salvation because of sin are oblivious to the fact that our sin debt has been forever settled and paid off by Jesus on the cross.....They skip right over the fact that tje HOLY SPIRIT CONVICTS AND CONVINCES OF SIN BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE NOT ON ME (JESUS) ......THEY KEEP NAILING JESUS TO THE CROSS EVERYTIME THEY SIN.....ignorant of the fact that the blood and righteousness of CHRIST has been applied eternally unto those who have exercised faith and that where sin abounds GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND........thise who say sin leads to the loss of salvation have not fully trusted into Christ.....no matter how they slice, dice and deny......the bible is clear....WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD I WILL PASS OVER YOU!

    Now if you junk righteousness, junk repentance and keep faith, what you have
    is the world with Jesus. What an empty gospel.

    The farce is you mouth off about it like you are on some great mission, but
    all you are doing is standing up for compromised sinners who claim salvation.
    This is a false accusation and the reason why you make folks mad.

    He doesn't stand up for sinners.he stands up for Faith in Jesus and understands that includes repentance and learning to,live Godly lives thru the leading of the Holy Spirit..

    Why do you keep,making false allegations about others beliefs?

    All you have proved is you are calling me a liar and deceiver.
    What have I lied about?
    Do you believe that christians should not be sexually immoral,
    liars, greedy, embezzelers? Because all of you fail to talk about
    sin and morality, the real hard nosed facing the sin in the heart, purifying
    the soul, learning how to love, to reach out and encourage.

    It is just this continual warfare. It is not as if you are even winning the argument,
    because you are not even putting forward a case.

    These points are simple.

    By the way I have faced people who do not answer the moral case because they do
    not have one, and use the assumption, ofcourse we condemn evil behaviour, but in
    truth, it is sin forgiven, and a personal affair between them and God.

    Even going around saying we are following the father of lies, is rather lame.
    Do you know how to talk morality and real reference points?
    Maybe homosexuals are ok, but pedophiles are not? Maybe porn is for smoothing
    over sexual problems, but abortion is just too brutal. And so what if people have
    serial relationships, they are not married after all, and the occasional accident, it
    happens. What about LGBT rights, or those lefty liberals? A call to arms is the
    next cry or civil war? You may not have noticed you are a right wing conservative
    who is blowing up their morality foundations. It is like watch a self demolition job
    in slow motion.

    A film you must watch, Get Me Roger Stone, the great deception by Trump of the
    evangelical vote. It is the same as the celebrity preachers, the worldly success
    of money and power put into a christian skin. And yes the world will fall, greed
    and evil will be judged but those who walk a righteous walk in Christ will be
    saved.

    all of us deserve hell

    but God was so merciful he sent Jesus to pay a price so high
    it can cover any sin ever made by all men and women

    when we have faith in him
    its not dead faith

    God sends a call to all and reveals to us that Jesus is the way
    and those who accept this are given a new heart
    after this
    the things we once took pleasure in
    now hurt us to do
    and we feel conviction to turn from them

    if we grow in the word and continue to follow Jesus and seek Gods will for us
    this is practicing righteousness

    we start to turn from sin

    like swearing
    vengence
    masterbation
    fornication
    false idols (sports,games, movies)

    and it becomes not a burden
    but a joy when we overcome sin through christ who strengthens us

    i believe it is possible to walk holy as Job did

    but this isnt what earns salvation
    it shows our fruit


    i think God preserved his Word
    and the bible is meant to be taken literally

    (unless its obvious hyperbole)

    Well idols are anything we set above God. Church could be an idol even. Sports are not an idol, but can become one, same with many other things. Perhaps this is what you meant but your wording didn't make it clear.

    Why do you keep,making false allegations about others beliefs?
    Ariel when people will not repent, or say the repent by changing their minds,
    have no sorrow about sin or its consequences, are not commited to dealing with
    sin, sin by sin, and walking righteously, why should I believe a word they say.

    A common phrase used in christian circles is a short account with God.
    But now this way of walking with Christ is evil. There is so much deception and
    lying it is impossible to make sense, so I just call Gods word Gods word.

    I make a simple challenge. What is ones moral stand, on what moral basis is it?
    Silence. Who is accepted in the Kingdom, a mass murderer, a prostitute or repentant
    righteous people? These are not difficult questions, but silence. And silence implies
    guilt, and failure. Tell me which list of banned people from heaven are wrong?
    Tell me how sinners will be allowed into the Kingdom of light and not only the
    redeemed righteous who have been proven true?

    Again not difficult challenges. If one is bound by sin daily, deal with it, work through
    the issues, read the bible, start believing it. It is obvious a lot of people do not know
    scripture that well and rely on their teachers to interpret it for them. Not surprising
    there is so much confusion and heresy then.

    Being called the enemy of God and the gospel is enough to just say, prove your points
    show the way in the word, because I know where and why I stand, and it is not just
    me it is millions of believers just like me. Too many are just numb from this rebellion
    and evil, defamation of clear truth and scripture, with no fear or respect.

    I know the assumption game, I just declare my faith. If you hold a different view prove
    it, or admit your foundation is flawed.

    Ariel you are assuming again.
    You are dealing with people of a different faith, different foundations and outlooks.
    They have changed the words and the morality.

    I was told if a preacher was an adulterer, sorted his life out, he should be given
    a second chance. Sin, repentance, a moral stand was irrelevant, it is just letting
    people do what they do and do not judge or even get involved, they are Gods
    anointed, above your pay grade to even question....

    Because the label says christian, it can still be from the pit of hell.
