Christians do not practice sin

Jesus calls us to believe in Him for forgiveness of sin, but He also calls us to turn from sin. He told the woman caught in adultery that He does not condemn her, but He also told her to go and sin no more. That is what the Bible says. He died on the cross for our sins, but not so that we could continue living in sin without repenting. We are all sinners, but 1 John says that Christians don’t practice sin. We don’t make it a way of life. We are all forgiven sinners when we believe in Jesus, but we are not suppose to use that as an excuse to continue sinning. We live in a world that promotes and glorifies sin, but it is also a world that is in rebellion against God and under the influence of Satan. Jesus came to turn us to God and to turn us from sin. He came the first time to die for our sins on the cross and cleanse the hearts of sin for all who believe in Him. When He comes back He is coming in judgment. He will cast Satan in Hell and all those who refused to turn to Him and repent of sin. That’s what the Bible says. I read it. God takes sin seriously. That’s why He sent His Son to die for us, not so we could continue sinning. We will sin, but we are not to make sin a way of life. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Whenever we do sin we need to confess it to God. He knew we would sin after we believed in Him, but He wants us to confess our sin and continue in a relationship with Him. From the looks of this world, Jesus is coming soon.
