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.

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, 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.

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.
