Learn how to stop sinning (verses included)

Every Christian in the world believes something about our ability to stop sinning, but the question is, “Do you believe what your Bible says, or have you been deceived into believing something else?”

John 5:24
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. NKJV

John 12:48-49
He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. [49] For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. NKJV

What would you do if you learned that the Word of God tells us that Christians can indeed stop sinning and it gives us specific instructions on how to do it, but most preachers refused to preach it? Would you believe God?

This site is for Bible believing Christians from any denomination. I only ask that you believe the verses that I will show you out of the New Testament with all your heart. Get your Bible out and let’s get started!

Can We Stop Sinning

The Bible says

Does the Bible say that Christians can stop sinning? See for yourself, and I will show you many more verses from the New Testament.

1 John 5:18 
We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. NKJV

1 Peter 4:1-2 
Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, [2] that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. NKJV

Romans 6:14 
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. NKJV

Romans 6:17-18 
But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. [18] And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. NKJV

Testimony

If the Word of God says that we can stop sinning, why do thousands of preachers today say that we can’t stop? How can so many people be wrong?

That’s their testimony, and so that is what they are receiving (Romans 10:6-8). Our words not only have the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21), but they control the course of our bodies and can set our whole life on fire (James 3:5-6).

Get this! According to Jesus Christ, whatever scripture that we do not believe will not remain on the inside of us (John 5:38). So if we do not believe the verses written in our own Bibles, they will not remain in us and then it will be very easy for us to speak against them, and that’s what millions of well meaning Christians do. 

We were clearly told to recon ourselves as dead to sin and alive to God (Romans 6:11-12) as a part of the process to stop sin from reigning in our mortal bodies, but that doesn’t get the crowd going these days. The bottom line is that if we tell people what they want to hear, then we will have lots of likes and lots of money (2 Timothy 4:3-4), but those who say Christians cannot stop sinning will never overcome the Devil.

Revelation 12:11 
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. NKJV

Believe?

Think about this. No one believes what they speak against. Is there anyone left on earth that proclaims “The earth is flat!” Why not? Everyone accepts the evidence that it is round, even though most of us have not been around the world to prove it.

In the same way, there shouldn’t be a Christian left who says that we cannot stop sinning, unless of course they do not believe the evidence found in the their Bible. There’s the problem, they do not believe their Bible, and everyone who does not believe will be condemned.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 
And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, [12] that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. NKJV

Mark 16:15-16 
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. [16] He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. NKJV

According to Jesus Christ, we must hear the Word of God and believe God in order to have eternal life. Know that for yourself!

John 5:24 
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. NKJV

Should We Stop Sinning

 

Why should we stop sinning when we have grace and redemption, the forgiveness of sins? That’s a good question, but its the same problem. What do I mean by that?

Just like the verses clearly written in any Bible concerning sin have been kept from millions of unsuspecting Christians today, so too have the verses concerning redemption and grace. Yes, we do have redemption the forgiveness of sins, but at the same time we were delivered from the power of darkness, and redeemed from our aimless conduct. Check the verses below!

Colossians 1:13-14 
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, [14] in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. NKJV

1 Peter 1:17-19 
And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; [18] knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, [19] but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. NKJV

Ask yourself why someone would mention redemption through Jesus’ blood, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:14 above) and never mention that we have been delivered from the power of darkness (Colossians 1:13), and that we have been redeemed from our former conduct by that same blood in keeping with 1 Peter 1:17-19, above?

As many of times that we hear one, we should also hear the other also. However, imagine what would happen if you only heard redemption being explained as the forgiveness of sins for the past twenty years you’ve been attending church.

In the same way, most Christians don’t realize that those who commit certain sins, known as “sins that lead to death,” have no inheritance. In other words, they will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Check the verse below!

Galatians 5:19-21
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

1 John 5:16-17 
If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that. [17] All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death. NKJV

James 5:19-20 
Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, [20] let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. NKJV

According to the Word of God, there is sin that will lead to death and sin that does not lead to death (1 John 5:16-17, above). If a Brother wanders from the truth, which is the Word of God (John 17:17), then he is in danger of losing his soul according to James 5:19-20 above. That is certainly one sin that will lead to death, and Galatians 5:19-21 above describes many sins that will prevent those who practice them from inheriting the Kingdom.

Those who preach “Once Saved Always Saved” preach in direct opposition to these verses, as well as many other verses, and that’s why they cannot see them. Their words are in direct opposition to the Word of God, and so they do not believe God.

Here is the biggest thing of all. Now that you have seen these verses, what are you going to do about it? Are you just going to ignore that they exist, like everybody else so that you will fit into the crowd? If so, you may never have an opportunity to see them again.

That’s what is meant by being blind. Just by speaking against the faith, we can fall away from the faith (1 Timothy 6:20-21), even to the point of being past feeling (Ephesians 4:17-19). I have talked with many preachers who cannot see these verses.

Even if they read them, they still would not be able to see what they say, because they have spent years preaching in opposition to them. In many cases, they have no idea that these verses even exist and so they preach the verses that they can see with confidence, believing that anything else beyond what they know has to be wrong.

The video above will help you understand how this all fits together (redemption, grace, righteousness, inheritance, sin, etc) and reveal to you the verses that are never preach today concerning grace, holiness, and righteousness.
