Any difference between practicing sin and falling into sin? (MY GCC 30 ENTRY)
- faith SteemChurch
1 John 3:4-6 (ESV)
4 Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. 5 You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him.
IS THERE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRACTICING SIN AND FALLING INTO SIN?
My assumption would be that practicing sin is being sinful as a part of your regular life. Whilst falling into sin would be entering into a temporary sinful state.
YES THERE IS!
Jesus said that woman "go and sin no more"
If she went and continued, then it could be said that she was practicing sin.
There is difference between practicing sin and falling into sin.
The first is that sin one does habitually. Living in sin when already know it. While the second is once in a while committing of sin which may be as a result weakness of the flesh.
the former connotes practice and the later entails event.
