Is It True That Since All Of Us Sin, It Must Be Okay To Sin?

Many believers seem to have the attitude “Since All Of Us Sin, It Must Be Okay To Sin.” But this runs contrary to what the Bible teaches. For example James 2:10 says “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” And II John 9 says “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.” It is true none of us live perfectly our whole lives without sin, but we can and should do what the follwing Old Testament saints did …

I Kings 9:4 And if thou wilt walk before me … in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments

Gen 6:22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

Dan 9:4 O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments

Deut 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
