Actually, he has been talking about freedom from sin. I see both sides of this debate making excellent points, mixed with a few minor mistakes, lol.

We do know that any theological position or doctrine has to be in agreement with the entirety of scripture. So let's first examine a few scriptures which may or may not apply to the topic but I think they do so post them. Here we go.

...on earth as it is in heaven... He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father...whatever is not done in Faith is sin...

Have you ever prayed, on earth as it is in heaven? Heaven is sinless within. The conclusion has to be that it's plausible to not sin or else you don't believe the word of God. It is possible to make it through a day without sinning, lol. All you have to do is don't be a punk. Can't you do that? I can. I am not without sin but I have sinned less today than yesterday.

Any deeds of the flesh are works. There are good works and bad works. Just because we're born again doesn't mean we can go on with a sinful lifestyle. So walk in Faith, and sin not.

If Jesus did it for 33 years then you should be able to handle 34 years, right? I mean, all those things Jesus did you will do and more, right? Or do you not believe that?
Good points, so why are you "not sinless"?
Turn from sin, (repent of sin), permanently.
Get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your past sins...and you will be sinless, with an attitude of permanent repentance from sin.
Do these two things, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, who will aid you in your battle against temptations all the time.
The strongest allies in the universe cannot be conquered.

There are more like me, and we use the biblical title of "The Church By Christ Jesus (Eph 3:21)".

Jesus died for our sins.
Do you think it right to continue to sin after such a selfless act for our benefit?
This is a brick and mortar church with a physical address?

Or at least a week. A day perhaps? I don't that would be unreasonable in the least. Maybe we have not been perfected completely yet, but it's not that hard to do the right thing.

"We" have been perfected in the things pertaining to judgement.
My knees still ache and my checkbook way be off some cents, but I won't be judged for those things.

Are you applying for a job or would you rather meet my pastor?
I am attempting to find out who you are getting this teaching from, but you continue to play word games which means you are not following "Let your yes be yes and your no be no". If so, you are sinning intentionally.

There's no Crowns in Heaven for a balanced check book or a clean house. :nod

I got my "teachings" from the members of "The Church by Christ Jesus (Eph 3:21)".
We have a pastor.
I have also received help from the Holy Ghost, to the praise of God.

I hope that made a difference in whether or not you believe men can live without sinning?

I agree, but it is important to present ourselves, and our houses, as if the whole world were judging us.
Because they are.
If we look like slobs and our houses are in shambles, who will believe we live Godly lives?
Who will take us seriously if we tell them we don't commit sins?
Even if we are living in a car, the car should be neat and orderly.

I just caught a little flak for posting about life without sin.
It got me wondering...isn't that the point of giving up this world to follow Christ?
How do you actually follow Christ? That is, what more is there than just saying you do?

I do as He commanded, ie...love God above all else and love my neighbor as myself.
I help when and where I can.
I refrain from all appearance of wickedness.

I obey the exhortations of the writers of the NT.
I pray, and study, and read, and pray some more.
Did I mention pray?

Do you cook, clean, and pay the bills of all your neighbors just as you do for yourself?
None of my neighbors need any of that.
I have, however, driven them to the food bank a hundred times.
I have helped them with bills too, now that I think of it.
Thanks for reminding me of the many good things the Lord has done for the poor, through me.

Remember, the Bible does not say to only help neighbors who "need." People with poor reading skills just think it says that.

Do you believe Jesus conquered sin while in the flesh?
Do you believe that those baptized into Christ are actually "in Christ"?
Do you believe there is no sin in Christ?
Do you think the Holy Ghost (given to those that turn from sin), has any power at all?

I believe all those things. It doesn't mean I agree with what you are trying to do with those truths.

You are taking some truths in the Bible and using them to support your lie. Seems like I remember reading about others doing that in the Bible.
