      I remember when I got my first video lesson. WOW! I remember my pro telling me, “You sure do a lot with your body for what little power you get out of it!” I could not believe it! I was sure I was as silky smooth as Els and had the flexibility of Woods. I was a poster child for some creative dance class is what I should of been.

1 John 1:8  If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

      I had this boss in the Navy that was a typical sailor. He did everything under the sun that was a sin to God. I remember one conversation that we had that arose when I was at a table reading my Bible and he threw a sock at me and started laughing. He said “Why are you reading that all the time? Don’t you know you just have to ‘Not sin’ and you’ll be all right?” Understanding the complete ignorance of what was just said I had to bite my lip from laughing because I sensed he was being sincere about what he was saying! He then told me that if you don’t sin you don’t need anybody to take your sin away! I then told him that we all are sinners and fall short of the glory of God. And he shook his head and said “No, not me. I’ve never sinned.” 
      He then told me that he has never done anything that HE considered sin. There’s the problem.  Man likes to think that as long as we don’t kill someone or punch our mothers that we are on the road to glory. That the Bible is just for people who want to look good to God but we don’t really need it to get to heaven. We are all Christians (being from America that is) and we are all children of God. God won’t send one of His children to hell as much as we would put ours in a house that is on fire. That’s ridiculous!
      One problem though. We are NOT born one of God’s children. Jesus himself said to the Pharisee’s “You are of YOUR father the devil” In John chapter 8.
      It says in 1 John chapter 3:10
 10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.

John also writes in chapter 2  in verses 21-23
 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth.
 22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist--he denies the Father and the Son.
 23 No-one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

      So we are born in wickedness but reborn and adopted into the family of God!

Eph 1:5 he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will–
