Do We Sin Every Day?

Q. Do you believe a Christian sins every day?Our men’s group had a disagreement about if a Christian sins everyday. Thanks, I enjoy your Site very much.

A. You tell me. According to my understanding of the Sermon on the Mount and other passages, every time a man gets a little angry, impatient, or frustrated with another person, justified or not, he sins. Every time he looks at any possession of someone else’s and wishes, even for a moment, that it was his, he sins. Every time he considers a woman’s attractiveness, or glances briefly at the image of a woman in a movie, on TV, the cover of a magazine, or in some kind of an advertisement and however fleetingly experiences a desire for her, he sins. I could go on, but you get the idea.
