Indeed, I John 1:8 says, “if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” A saint does sin. But Christian is one who has saint as their constant identity and sinner as or occasional activity. For the Christian, there is a vital difference between having sin and being sin.
