    Both Peter (Galatians 2:13) and John (Revelation 19:10) sinned

    For those who believe that a Christian never sins please explain how both Peter and Barnabas (Galatians 2:13) as well as John (Revelation 19:10) sinned.

    Galatians 2:13
    The rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, with the result that even Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy. (NASB)

    Revelation 19:10
    Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (NASB)

    Are there Christians here @ CF who believe that they never sin?
    Matthew 5
    16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

    Matthew 7
    12 However you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

    1 Corinthians 13
    1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

    1 Peter 3
    15 Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.

      Apparently I don't.

      I thought I did, but my misunderstanding has been clarified by my Lutheran brothers.
      It seems that when my atheist parents had me sprinkled in a Lutheran church at a few weeks old, I was baptized into the Grace.
      So none of my sins counted.

      Don't you wish your parents had planned ahead. ;)

      (Hey, this is a joke ... except the part about being baptized Lutheran by Atheist parents ... that's true.)

        Were your parents hedging their bet in your case?

          It's worse than that. We attended THE church. You know, in every town there is one church where all the corporate up and comers go to be seen. So we moved every two years as my father clawed his way up the corporate ladder over people he shafted. In each new town we were regular attenders in THE church ... Christmas and Easter. The year and town I was born in, THE church was Lutheran.

          In retrospect, what man meant for evil, God meant for good may apply. It was literally a "hell" of a journey, but God eventually cornered me and claimed me for his own. So perhaps God WAS marking me as the first in at least four generations to serve the Lord. Don't tell those other Lutherans or I'll never hear the end of Infant Baptism. :)
