Can A Christian Sin?

What do you say? Most people who consider themselves Christians probably see this question and think, "Boy, this is way off the mark. Everyone knows the answer. It's yes." But according to the Bible, the Biblical record upon which Christianity says it bases it beliefs, this question is rightfully on the mark. But is our answer? For the record, this is not some sort of trick Bible word game. It goes to the fundamental core of understanding Biblical Christianity, the good news, as given to us by Christ in the first century as opposed to modern day Churchianity's skewed teachings. So, let's ask this question. What exactly is sin anyway? Can you put your answer into 25 words or less? And by what standard is sin determined … is it more or less based on the Old Testament, the law covenant Christ broke nearly 2000 years ago? And can a Christian sin once we are “born of God,” that is, being baptized and receiving the Spirit of God? A look into what the Biblical record actually states is quite revealing. According to the word of God, then, once we are born of God, can a Christian sin? Nope.

Riding Rogue Ponies Into The Apocalypse, The Curious Elephant

At its most fundamental level, the story contained in the Biblical record is quite simple to understand as the Flow Chart at the back of the book shows. [Also see the chart at the bottom of the Feature article, A Tale Of Two Covenants]. It is totally and completely related to the two covenants, the one made with Abraham and his Seed, Christ and the law covenant made with the children of Israel and the relationship between them both through Christ.

His Treasured Possession

We’ve mentioned in many of our articles and books that Christ was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel as he said to the gentile woman in the coastal areas of Tyre and Sidon. [Mat. 15:24]. There was a massive theological assault on the canon of the early church, so that by the fifth century, the Roman church et al had unilaterally chosen to redefine, i.e., change the truth into a lie, our Biblical identity. [See the Feature article, Moving Forward].
