Are you a sinner?

Yes, I am but I am also a son of GOD. Im a sinner forgiven by GOD and in His Grace and Mercy, He gave me the right to become a child of GOD.

John 1:12 (Amplified Bible)

1:12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name—




To show that the divine effort changed all the meaning of sin, righteousness and judgement.


John 16:8-11 (Amplified Bible)

16:8 And when He comes, He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment:

16:9 About sin, because they do not believe in Me [trust in, rely on, and adhere to Me];

16:10 About righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God), because I go to My Father, and you will see Me no longer;

16:11 About judgment, because the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world [Satan] is judged and condemned and sentence already is passed upon him.


Praise, worship and thank You very much LORD JESUS because of Your Divine Effort in my life, I'm a sinner that is a child of GOD, I am righteous because of Your righteousness in me, and I'm no longer judged and condemned and I will enjoy eternal life with You in Heaven.

[Source: All Before definition provided by Webster's Dictionary]

A. Sin - because you don't believe in JESUS

"16:9 About sin, because they do not believe in Me [trust in, rely on, and adhere to Me]; "

Before: Sin - the voluntary departure of a moral agent from a known rule of rectitude or duty, prescribed by God; any voluntary transgression of the divine law, or violation of a divine command; a wicked act; iniquity.

Hebrews 10:28 (Amplified Bible)

10:28 Any person who has violated and [thus] rejected and set at naught the Law of Moses is put to death without pity or mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.

Definition of sin in the Old Testament that is Law:

Deuteronomy 17:2-6 (Amplified Bible)

17:2 If there is found among you within any of your towns which the Lord your God gives you a man or woman who does what is wicked in the sight of the Lord your God by transgressing His covenant,

17:3 Who has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or moon or any of the host of the heavens, which I have forbidden,

17:4 And it is told and you hear of it, then inquire diligently. And if it is certainly true that such an abomination has been committed in Israel,

17:5 Then you shall bring forth to your town’s gates that man or woman who has done that wicked thing and you shall stone that man or woman to death.

17:6 On the evidence of two or three witnesses he who is worthy of death shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the evidence of one witness.

You are a sinner because you sin, but because you rejected the LORD JESUS offer of salvation and grace for you. It's no longer what you do or who you are, but who JESUS in your life. It's relationship not religion that can save us from hell.

Romans 3:23 (Amplified Bible)

3:23 Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honor and glory which God bestows and receives.

Romans 6:23 (Amplified Bible)

6:23 For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.
