Where is the line between sin and sinless is asking the wrong question.

Quick Quote – Source – Paul Palmer

A Biblical Christian worldview perspective – When someone asks me a series of questions whose goal is to determine how close to sin they can get before they are “actually” sinning, I tell them they are asking the wrong question.

I tell them to imagine a large (poorly marked) circle. Everything inside the circle is “ok” and everything outside the circle is a “sin”. God will be in the center of this circle as far from sin as possible. Now if you spend your whole life trying to walk as close to the edge of the circle as possible without stepping across the edge, at the end of your life, will you be any closer to God than when you started? Or, you could turn your back to the edge of the circle and make your goal to start walking toward God… never having to worry again about where the edge of that poorly marked circle is.

1 Timothy 6:11
But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.
