When you continue to follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Anyone living this sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God! (See Galatians 5:19-21)
Even if you
claim to be a believer yet you indulge in sexual sin, or you are greedy,
or you worship idols, or you are abusive, or you are a drunkard, or you
cheat people, or you commit adultery, or you are a male prostitute, or
you practice homosexuality, or you are a thief, you will not inherit the
Kingdom of God! (See 1. Corinthians 5:11, 1. Corinthians 6:9-10)
you keep on sinning, it shows that you belong to the devil, who has
been sinning since the beginning. Those who have been born into God’s
family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them.
So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. So now
we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil.
Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers
does not belong to God! (See 1. John 3:8-10)
Even if you claim to
be living in the light and love God, but hate a fellow believer, you are
a liar and still living in darkness! You do not know the way to go,
because you have been blinded by the darkness! (See 1. John 2:9-11, 1.
If you love only those who love you and do good only
to those who do good to you, and if you love your father or mother more
than you love Jesus Christ, you are not worthy of being His; or if you
love your son or daughter more than Jesus Christ, you are not worthy of
being His. If you refuse to take up your cross and follow Jesus Christ
you are not worthy of being His! (See Luke 6:32, Matthew 10:37-39)
THE BIBLE SAYS
That God’s true children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s
Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them! (See 1.
