All are fallible Not all are sinners
We are all fallible but not all of us are sinners. We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God but those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Master are not sinners any more. They have repented and become obedient children of God. They have turned from their evil ways and from going after the pleasures of sin and they are going after Jesus.
We read in 1 John 3: 4 "Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. 5You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. 6No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 7Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother."
If a child of God stumbles, he immediately repents, pleads Jesus forgiveness, and does everything in his power, not to repeat the same sin.
All sinners will end up in hell, if they do not repent and stop sinning.
Are you a holy, obedient child of God, or are a sinner?
May Jesus bless you.
