The Doubter’s Bible


Recently, I came across a teaching that said “we will never be perfect until the redemption of our bodies.”

I can agree that a righteous man is not conscious of his righteousness, and nor would he ever boast of being “perfect”, for he will always see Jesus’ exceeding loveliness and view himself as far below that.

But the idea that we must sin every day, I do not find in Scripture.

Oh wait…maybe in these verses?

1 Corinthians 15
34 Awake to righteousness and [try to] sin not [but you will fail].

Jude 1
24 Now unto Him who is [almost always] able to keep you from falling.

1 Corinthians 15
57 Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory [most of the times].

John 8
11 Go and [try to] sin no more [but don’t blame me if it doesn’t work].

Romans 14
23 Whatsoever is not of faith is [almost always] sin [except where it has become orthodox].

By the way, those quotes were from the “Doubter’s Bible”, Authorized Version.
