We're all sinners, Aren't we?

"Stop acting like a saint, you've sinned at one point or the other". I never thought of it like that but when my friend told this to me i was really taken aback. Yes he is right in a way. I don't think there is anyone who can say that they have never sinned in their entire life. Everyone of us has sinned at some point of our life, haven't we? Or is their really someone who has never sinned in their entire life?

Aside from Jesus, yes, we've all sinned but that doesn't mean that we can't strive to be the best person we can be. Using your friend's logic, we should stop trying to be a good cook because we've all burned food at one point...or we should stop trying to be good at our job because we've all screwed up at one point.

That is a great response spalladino. I'm going to plagiarize your words and use them on my friend. I hope you don't mind

no one has escaped sin, we are all sinners, each and every man is a sinner, we have to accept that we are sinners.

Yes, we should acknowledge that we are all sinners, but it's what we do afterwards that matters. Sometimes guilt or shame and take it's toll on us. But asking forgiveness for sins matter most. No one should ever feel bad or beat themselves up for sinning, because it is part of our human nature. but that's why we can always turn to God for forgiveness AND redemption! happy mylotting!

Yes i guess what you say is right sangkala. Sin is a part of human nature. However we may disagree it is a part we can't remove

Yes, we are all sinners. But i don't think that just because we all made mistakes at one point of our lives, we should stop trying to live a righteous life. I mean, we may trip and fall, but we have to get back to our feet and keep running the race. we should stop acting like a saint, but we should at least strive to live like one as best as we can.

Nobody is sin free. Even Saint Peter denounced that he knew Christ which of course was untrue.

We are BORN into sin so technically we are sinners all our life. Thank God for His Son's sacrifice otherwise there would be NO hope!!

well I have to say every one have sinned in his life but it does not mean you have to sin many times. only one person has not sinned and it is Jesus but you do not need to be like Him you just have to follow Him

Sinners???May be we are....Man makes mistakes....Its good if you feel sorry for the mistake that you had committed.... But repeating the mistake once again is the greatest sin of all.That is unforgivable.

You're right, we've all sinned, and I know I am still sinning, unfortunately! If you haven't, I guess you'll be a saint someday...it'll never happen to me. Who thinks that they've never sinned?? Take care!!

it is a good thought, to think that we're not perfect so we try to improve in a good way. but sin? sinner?.. who has the only right to djudge that?.. for me it's not any of us, or things that are within the circulation of tranformation and limitated by beginning and ending, so i dont' think i know about wheter someone has comitted sin or a sinner, and vice versa. i just dont have the right to do so, why? because i dont have the capability for that kind of judment. Why? because i am just a creation, i am just an outcome of a cause, and a cause for an outcome.
