The apostle John taught in his first epistle that born again believers willnotcontinue in sin (1 John 5:18b). Therefore, is it possible for a Christian to live in a continued pattern of sin which reflects a disposition to behave in a manner that grieves theHoly Spiritinternally and corrupts one's testimony externally? The short answer is no.Why?
First, there is no pattern or precedence in the Bible that would even suggest the possibility. It is true, however, the scriptures record Christians sinning against God.
