Why Christians Sin
No matter who you are, even if you think you are the most perfect person that ever came forth, you still have sin in your life. All Christians do! No Christian can have day-by-day victory over sin and live the happy, joyful, triumphant life, until he or she faces the true facts about sin in their own nature, sin in his own life, what sin will do and what do about it. Remember what it says in Jeremiah 17:9, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?
Every Christian Has Two Natures.
To better understand why Christians sin, we must understand the difference in the two natures we as Christian have. We have an old nature and a new nature. We are to put on the new nature while putting off the old nature.
