 17 All unrighteousness is sin; and there is a sin that does not lead to death.4

1 John 3:7-10,19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 Little children, let no man deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.3 [Jesus only spoke, judged, and did as He was prompted and ordered by God; to practice righteousness we also must be able to only speak what we hear Him order us to say and only do what we are ordered to do by God. This ability only comes after we have crucified our selfish spirit, as sin has been destroyed by the Spirit through bearing the inward cross of self-denial; then we are walking the same way He walked and in the world as He was with perfection, purity, and holiness.]

 8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]

 9 Whoever is born of God does not commit sin, for his seed [Christ] remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.5

 10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed [distinguished]: whoever does not live righteously is not of God, neither is he who does not love his brother. [If you are still sinning, you are a child of the devil, regardless of what your blind guide priest or minister says differently. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me."]

 19 By this we know that we are of the truth, and our hearts will be assured before him.

1 Corinthians 15:34

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 34 Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. [Paul is shaming those believers in the church who think they are righteous while still sinning, just as John warned us not to be deceived in the same. From the Word of the Lord within: "Aim at and pursue righteousness, without which no one will see the Lord. Do not be misled over righteousness; all sin is unrighteousness. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. Do you agree with any who in their arrogance have stated that God excuses evil in believers? It's not fair, but they don't care. The cross is offered to all. In this process of carrying your cross, your sin gradually disappears, within and without, to your satisfaction." There is not even an imputed righteousness until the death of the sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial. See the definition of righteousness in Footnote 3 of 1 John 3.]

Romans 6:16

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves as slaves to obey, you are the slaves of whom you obey; whether of sin that leads to death, or of obedience that leads to righteousness?5 [Obedience leads to being righteous. Without obedience, listening to and obeying the Word of God in your heart, you are a slave to sin. Jesus strongly confirms this: Truly, Truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. John 8:34. We through the Spirit, by faith, patiently wait for the hope of righteousness. Gal 5:5]

Ephesians 4:22,24

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 22 Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;

 24 And put on the newly created nature [of Christ], which is created in God's image of true righteousness and holiness.7

Ephesians 5:5-6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. [The peoples of the earth have ignored these perfectly clear behaviors, (sexual immoraity, impurity, covetousness), that exclude any and all from the kingdom. From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6: This the void of the earth, made perfectly clear. Those who are immoral have no inheritance in God's kingdom." Paul just told us that covetousness is idolatry. So whatever we want or value, we worship; and how one spends their free time defines their devotion. From the Word of the Lord within: "you must learn to hate everything you worship."]

 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.1 [Paul pleas with you not to be deceived by anyone who tells you differently, (e.g., that your sexual immorality, impurity, and covetousness is excused by believing in Jesus), which is what the preachers of Christianity do; even the demons believe in Jesus. It is only by waiting on the Lord to hear and obey his commands that one can become pure, free of sexual immorality, and free of covetousness. From the Word of the Lord within: "The way is clear: listen and obey."]
