Hi SP,<quoted text>
The more you become love, the less you sin ---possibly, but not probably
If you entertain sin in your mind, the less love you'll be?....getting too technical , mind boggling!
BLL, when you say "I have never said that" are you saying we are lieing about what you posted? You have most diffinetly said "To walk perfect, like Jesus instructed, to obey all the commandments.
Why ask for forgiveness, if we believe we are saved anyway?---I will always ask God to forgive me when I have sinned (I know when I goofed up and sinned, I have guilt and even though I have FAITH I am SAVED, I will ask forgiveness for the wrong I have done.
(Running out of space,)....So, LOVE is what you meant by being PERFECT, and can enter Heaven, not NOT SINNING ...and if you have LOVE, you won't Sin?
I guess it would be more of an apology than asking for something that we already received but we are human and it is our nature to ask for forgiveness. I like your post. You are exactly right IMHO
