No i am not beating the sin drum, i am urging you fundamentalists to quit focusing on sin and set your affections on things above, your condemnation of sinners will dry up and you will create a world of righteousness rather than one where you believe sin is rife.

I commend you too on your smaller posts that are not only much easier to read but to the point too.

In true faith, there is no excuses for us live by doing sin.

We must be dead to sin
No one can completely be separate from sin, but we should seek to minimize it as much as possible.

While God's grace is what redeems us, it doesn't mean we have the license to behave against God's perceptive will.

Why can't you? Is it not dependent on how you see yourself and/or other people?
Ms. Blue said, there is a spark of goodness in every soul or person. Can you not see it?

What you believe or focus on has a tendency to grow beyond measure; good or bad.

This is true. However, the believer still has the old sin nature after salvation and inevitably will still sin. The believer has to be sin conscious in order to know when he has sinned so that he can acknowledge the sin to God as per the principle of 1 John 1:9. Sin puts the believer out of fellowship with God until the sin is acknowledged. Because that sin was judged at the cross God forgives the sin when the believer simply admits to God that he sinned. 1 John 1:9 is the believer's recovery provision.

The believer who doesn't acknowledge his sins to God is constantly out of fellowship, in a state of carnality, and is not filled with the Spirit and unable to grow spiritually as long as he is in a carnal state.

Sin in the believer's life can result in divine discipline as stated in Hebrews 12:4-8.

Because it is in every person.

It is NOT dependent on how you see yourself. It's just who you are. It's just who I am.

'Died to sin' would include to Not intentionally sinning, Not premeditated, Not on purpose, Not willfully sinning.
We can Not escape our inherited imperfection due to adamic sin inherited from father Adam, but we do Not have to be deliberately disobedient to what we know to be right in God's eyes.

What you feed grows, what you set your attention on you attract.

It may be who you are, but that doesn't hold true for everyone.
