If the Apostle Paul calls himself the "chief of all sinners" what chance do I have? Atheists have a right to complain about how we Christians are just as sorry acting as they are. How can we get "saved" then keep on acting like you guys? Well first of all, I said we still act as sorry as you all, however when one gets saved there should be some visible evidence of some kind of change. We all are born into a sin nature. When we accept Christ we get a new nature. That's when the battle begins. We start a daily struggle to overcome our lustful and selfish prideful ways. When someone lives like their is no law they are living like there is no God.(I have a verse for that, just not off the top of my head). One who lives like their is a God should not allow these sins to control us.(Gal. 5:16). And I know many Believers who are at least better now then they were before Christ, and are getting better, and are no longer involved in "habitual" sins. You'll have to do your own research on what is sin, or maybe that will be an upcoming post of mine? But a quick answer is this, (James 4:7)"To him that knows to do good, and does it not, to him is sin..." I'm sorry God when I don't do that and thanks for your words in 1 John 2:1-2 If I confess my sins, you are just to forgive me of my sins.
