So I've read 1 John alot and I understand that I cannot continue to sin if I want to be a child of God's.
1 John 1:6 (NIV)
6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.
But then at the same time, if we accomplish the call to be holy and to be righteous and to be free of sin then we are not children of God.
1 John 1:8 (NIV)
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
I'm personally struggling with this very line in my own life. I don't hate people, because I know that I'm commanded to love. But when it comes to my own desires of the flesh I continually fail. I have no self control, I cannot even get out of bed when my alarm goes off lol.
Where does God draw this line? does He give us any more insight into the battle with sin through scripture? So I ask again, where does God draw the line when it comes to Sin?
