ah, here we go- the real reason why you do not like local church- you want a sinless perfectionism theology.

sinless perfectionism is a 100% false doctrine. no one is sinless.

Exodus 20:20 Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning."
1 John 3: 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.

I want to ask you a question. Why is there adultery in the church, sooner are later there will be someone that rubs you the wrong way? In the church we learn that you just repent because we are under Grace. That God is a loving God he will forgive you. If people really fear God, they would be too scared to sin, because he cannot immerse with sin, so you lose. You have seen what we have been talking about, so I'm not going into it again.
As my orchestra teacher would tell us when we asked some random question that had nothing to do with the lesson: what does this have to do with the cost of tea in China?

Lol.

The church I grew up in had a case of adultery. It followed the guideline provided in Scripture. Thanks to God and His great mercy, I know for a fact one of the individuals repented and was restored. As for the other person, idk. I never saw said person again. I can only hope and pray this person listened to Holy Spirit.

1 John 1:8-10 If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.

There's more Scripture for you.

The Churches keep you in infancy. In the body of Christ adultery will not be tolerated.
Not every congregation tolerates adultery.

I have grown in my walk with the Lord personally and through the local fellowship. I’m sure MANY others here can say the same for themselves. You have not visited every single local fellowship in the world. You don’t have the right to say ALL churches keep the believers in infancy.

One day some of them will come out of the churches, but not all because the bible says,Matthew 7:13-14 13"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Was Paul born of God? Have you read Romans 7?

well, since he believes in sinless perfectionism, he thinks any church that does not teach that is invalid.

Come on now seriously; surely you know that it is talking about after you are born again. None of them were born of God, Except Jesus.

That’s my point. In Romans 7 Paul writes that he still sinned after he was born again.

None of them were born of God, Except Jesus.
Every Christian is born of God. The Christian new birth.

Romans 7: 5-6
5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter

You have to stop living by the soul and live by the spirit. That's how you die.
