Re: Sinning as a Christian = sinner?
It's an identifier Slug. Because of that, we don't use it to describe believers. Sinner is an identity. In Christ, we are Christians, not sinners.
There will be no liars there! But Abraham lied. However, he's not a liar. There will be no immoral person there. But David committed immorality, but he is not an "adulterer". There's a difference, IMO, in one who seeks to sin and one who seeks to avoid sin. One who seeks to sin is defined as a sinner. One who seeks to please Jesus is a Christian even if he does sin.
Paul called those undisciplined believers in Corinth saints. He spoke to them about their sin. But did he call them sinners?
"May the Lamb that was slain receive the just reward for His sufferings." A quote by Moravian missionary that sold himself (along with a friend) into slavery to reach those that the slave owner prevented from hearing the gospel.
