|1 John 3:9 |
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 [To be born again, you must be crucified, which destroys all desires to sin in you. As a new creature you are then raised to heaven by Jesus who shows you the Father, and then you belong to Jesus and the Father. Once you are in the Father's hand, you are protected from ever sinning again. "We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; instead God protects the one he has fathered, and the wicked one does not touch him." 1 John 5:18.]
5 Anyone claiming to be born again, but still sinning, is repudiated by John. John also says, whoever does not live righteously is not of God. Jesus said, Truly I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. John 8:34. He who commits sin is of the devil. 1 John 3:8.
