Yes. The power of the Holy Ghost who indwells me enables me to dispense with sin. Of course, the Holy Ghost won't indwell a "sinful temple."You think you live a sinless life?
It started recently with my conversion.Was this all your life or just now.
I can't offer a definitive answer to this question because I don't make a practice of evaluating people's worth.Do you consider others better than yourself?
I think so. I do try to be thoughtful in that regard.Is every thing you do, first thought of as to how it might effect others?
I don't bother people with it if that's what you're asking.Do you play your music too loud?
I don't have a dog partly because it may bark at night bothering my neighbors.Do you let your dog bark at night?
But I have the righteousness of Christ imparted to me by the Holy Ghost. If others don't have that righteousness, then they are as free as I am to accept it.Your claim of living a sinless life is why someone else said to you: "there is a lot of self-righteous Pharisee stuff."
You're taking 1 John 1:8 out of context. If we append verses 6 and 7 we have:1 Kings 8:46 “When they sin against You (for there is no man who does not sin)
1John 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
So what John is actually saying is that we deceive ourselves as sinless "if we are walking in darkness" (i.e. sin). If you or anybody are walking in that darkness of sin, then the blood of Jesus can cleanse you from sin if you repent.6 If we say that we have fellowship with him while we are walking in darkness, we lie and do not do what is true; 7 but if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Anyway, one of the reasons I believe God saved me from sin is because so many distort His word, and he wants me to reveal to people that by distorting God's word, they imperil souls. Please be more careful from now on to check the context of anything you quote from God's word. Otherwise, people may be deceived.
