Hi TLIG,

I'm not stalking you but I notice that your profile page states.

Spiritual Status = Unsure
When Saved = At all times.

How and why are you saved at all times if your spiritual status is unsure?
Seriously,

Please do not ask me stupid questions.

Your time is worth more than that is it not?

Why is asking you "How and why are you saved at all times a stupid question?

I was interested to know your thoughts.
That's all.

You want to know why I consider your questions stupid?

Let's try an experiment with you.

From now on only speak to me in Spirit and truth.

Then you will know why I consider your questions stupid.

How can I speak to you in spirit and truth when I do not know what your spiritual status is?

So why were my questions stupid?

Its not bout winning or losing Christ died for all and you too can accept His free gift of salvation and have the assurance of seeing Him in heaven some day as well

John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Everything is about winning and losing.

Jesus came to save what was lost.

And sin is not even free.

Nothing is free. Someone paid for it.

seems you spend your time lying to yourself about how you do not sin. no one is sinless, including you.
Are you saying to me that you believe there is no life without sin?

When they ask you why did you sin?

Are you going to tell them

because no one is sinless?

I would advise you to not do that.

How does God define sin?

My definitions are worthless.
I know how the Bible defines sin. missing the mark, falling short of a standard , knowing to do good and not doing so.

so, that is the Biblical definition of sin.

knowing to do good and not doing so.
Amen! It is not that we are as bad as we can be, it's that we are not as good as God wants us to be . . . absolutely perfect in every area. Unless we are without spot and without blemish we cannot act as our own mediator before God.

I found this in the bible
1 John 5:17
All unrighteousness is sin

Is it biblical?
