It’s shocking how many supposed mature Christians argue against the call to holiness (as if it were impossible), and they promote the idea that sin is an unfortunate but expected part of our lives. They believe, contrary to Scripture, that the cross paid the penalty of sin but it doesn’t give us power over sin. Simply, they expect to sin and don’t feel concern over their condition or the sinful habits of others.

The truth is that we never have to sin again. If we do, it should be an uncommon, major event that causes us to hit our face in mourning, tears, brokenness and urgent repentance.

Sin can and does cause many followers of Jesus to spend eternity in Hell. To say sin is an expected part of Christian’s lives is a grievous offense to the cross.
