Again, because you are prone to lying and deception, you ignore what people say and manufacture your own perversion. Because you take verses out of context from the Bible you do the same in regard to the fulness of the words of others. You ignore the difference between sin that is lawlessness and sin that is not of faith. They are not the same. One is in regard to behavior (violating the Law) and the other is in regard to unbelief. The context of John's words (not mine) are in regard to lawlessness, not unbelief.There is nothing in the entire passage which even hints that John's words are not to be taken literally.
Do you not think that any sin a believer commits defiles him? Or do you sgree with SOZOS that a believer cannot sin? Do you not think that a believer should judge himself in regard to his behavior? Paul wrote the following to believers:
"For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world." (1 Cor.11:31-32).
1 Cor 11 is in regard to being judged by the body for getting drunk and eating all the food before others can eat, but you hate context, which is why you are, in fact, a pervert.
