Sinners are not Christians are not Sinners
A born-again Christian is not a sinner, because he is a new creature. He has been born of the Spirit of God and of water through baptism.
A born-again child of God has been grafted into the Vine, Jesus Christ. We read in John 15:1 "1“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6“If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned."
If we do not stay with Jesus and do what He commands, but rather go after the pleasures of sin, and follow after our own lusts, we will produce bad fruit. We will be warned and disciplined but if we do not change our ways obey Jesus and bear good fruit we will get cut off and burned. Those who bear bad fruit will end up in hell even if they were once born-again.
Many people pretend to be Christians, but they are false prophets and false Christians. They are very religious, some are preachers, prophets, Bible scholars and spiritual people. Some even heal the sick and speak in tongues, but they are false, because they produce bad fruit, they are SINNERS.
Jesus warned: “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.
21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ Matthew 7:15-23.
If we truly follow Jesus Christ, we will obey Him and bear good fruit. We will be known by our fruit. Christians are not sinners, they are saints, holy people. They do not sin.
May Jesus bless you.
