Not even for a second! Now, there you go, prove me wrong. BASED upon the spirituality of God's law, and its demands, it is impossible for a man born of the seed of the first Adam, to live sin free, IMPOSSIBLE sir, totally impossible.  I only would to God that it was NOT SO, but, my struggles with the old man, and the new man, clearly proves to me that it is impossible

Before we go on maybe we should clarify some understanding of terms.

When you refer to the "old man" are you referring to "sinful nature" or "flesh"  or are all
these terms mean the same thing?

Could you also give me a definition of "sin" , so we know we are talking about the same things.


Thank you.

I believe that he does. However in one of our recent fights, he lashed out saying I was living it up w my new relationship and having sex and that he hasn't had traditional sex since our divorce.  So, yes... I think he just uses porn.. Much like when we were married.

Is it possible as born again, Spirit filled followers of Christ to live without sin? If so, how? If not, why not?

ALL of God's children said AMEN, and AMEN.

Amen Brother Red! Those who admit their failure and see the need for the righteusness of Christ by faith in His finished work will be kings and priests in the kingdom of God.

I can't wait to see the face of the One in which I have placed my faith for all things.

The Jews are His people, we are His children.
Now that's a BIG Jewish myth~those are the myth's that we should contend against, not so much particular days.
Quote
Romans 9:6-8~"Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.  That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed."

Sister, these are inspired words of God, believe them, and hold them fast, for this is God's truth concerning Israel after the flesh.  Most of them have NEVER been of God, which is so evident from a multitudes of scriptures.  You believe that, because men have said it over and over again, yet God has clearly witnessed to us concerning WHO are his children and who are not.  The children of God are those PROMISED to God's Son in the everlasting covenant of grace, secured by God's will to show MERCY to Jesus' seed, based upon Jesus living as their Covenant head, fulfilling the law of God perfectly for them.....which alone give them a right to life eternal in the world to come.  We can argue of certain days, feast days, meats, drinks, and clothing, to no profit, yet we cannot disagree of God's covenant of grace to the seed of Jesus Christ, and still be correct of the pure gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Jews are no more God's children than the Gentiles are, being considered as a people.  God's children are the children of his promises which were freely given to them on the behalf of Jesus Christ, not because of a certain type of blood flowing through our veins.......that's a lie from Satan, and a terrible myth from the old serpent. 

I really do not believe words could have been said clearer than the way Paul said them in his letter to the saints that were in Rome, in the scriptures above quoted.  Are they not plain?  Even to a point for one to disagree with them, they would be seen disagreeing with God, not man.

Not yet received a list of GOD's appointed feast days ?
I believe I have mentioned Lev.23 several times now as they were given to 'ancient Israel.please note it does not say they were only for Jews....as some believe.
If however you are looking for God's appointed feasts for Gentiles you will have a long wait or even miss your calling.
God does not have different groups of people ...He is the God of ISRAEL, ancient physical and future spiritual. We are all to become ONE through Jesus Christ Gal 3v28.
But we are not there yet, the journey is not ended. It takes time to bring people of different beliefs together because we are all 'slow and stubbornly resisting change.
Let us be grateful and thankful for God's Grace and patience and become more eager to accept His Word...TODAY, if we will hear His voice !
 

The Jews are His people, we are His children. Big difference. Paul gave some good tellings off for those who were trying to earn their salvation by keeping some of the Jewish rules and regulations.  We are under a new covenant, we have been adopted as His very own children, and we are saved forgiven and made new through the death and resurrection of Jesus.

I think that some Christians need to remember that many things in the OT of the Bible were for the Jews, we are not Jews and our covenant is different. We have indeed been redeemed from the curse of the law, praise God, and we have new amazing things to celebrate and be thankful for.   ::clappingoverhead::
You can not seem to let go of the idea that everything in the OT had to do with JEWS only. that is not true...it had to do with ISRAEL which were not all Jews.At one time they were even two separate Kingdoms fighting each other. Please review your history of those times to help you have a clearer picture of WHO people are.
The tribes of Israel are still lost to this day since God cast them out of His sight for sabbath-breaking 2kgs ch 17. JESUS came looking for them ,( not for the Jews or the Gentiles since they were not lost) but how many hear His call ?
Are you saying that Jesus abandoned the law and considered it a curse ? scripture says that nothing will pass from the law untill all is fulfilled Mat 5v17,18. the law that was a curse were the ''works and rituals , temporal until Christ (now obsolete)....NOT the original moral law/commandments which is holy, just and good and still valid in the NT ,Ro.7. To transgress them is SIN, 1Joh 3v4.
Yes the new Covenant is different in that we keep it with love and compassion, not by strict command as in the OT.
It is alright to disagree but please do so with scripture and not opinion.
