Preachers have asked me, as well as they have preached asking; don't you at anytime entertained sinful thoughts in your mind? And they quote verses like; "Matthew 5: 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." They assume that you have committed sin, and they think they got you. But Jesus never asked anyone whether they committed sin. But he wants sinners to be converted, tells them not to sin anymore, and gives them grace, power, and Spirit. If we submit ourselves to him, he will make us righteous and forgive our past sins, so that we will go to heaven. There are four status in heaven. Let me just take two. They are new earth and new heaven. If we are converted and become righteous; we will not harm others, but we will help them. We love God with fear. Then we will go to heaven that is paradise or new earth. If we have become holy as God is holy, which is the high calling of God, we will inherit new heaven with all its glory. The high calling is to deny ourselves for God; and the common calling is to help others, but not to hurt them. Both will be rewarded in heaven; of course, with different glory. But there are warnings to deceivers, who appear to be godly preachers. Jesus Christ calls them white sepulchers; and they serve Satan the chief deceiver. They will try their best to deceive you. They themselves are deceived, and don't even know it. Don't be deceived by them. God will punish them in the lake of fire.
Heaven is in four levels.1. Paradise. Common born-again believers will go there, if they have not grieved and quenched the holy spirit in them. 2. Tabernacle of God in new earth. The servants of God, who have the spirit of God, who hold the truth of God, will serve God in the tabernacle in new earth. 3. New Heaven. The Sons of God will inherit new heaven. As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. They have mortified the deeds of their body, which is sinning, through the Spirit of God. They do not commit sin since they are born of God. Those who follow Jesus Christ as disciples may fit in this level. 4. New Jerusalem. By the name, it appears to be a place. But this name is given to the bride of the Lamb. The lamb is Jesus Christ. The bride is described as the glorious city, New Jerusalem. Every bride will keep herself as pure as Jesus Christ is pure. They will be with Jesus Christ throughout eternity. However, not many people have received this high calling from God. Philippians 3 says: "14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you." This high calling will be received only by them, who have already become perfect. In Matthew 8:19-20 and in Mark 5:18-20, men asked Jesus that they may follow him to be his disciples. Jesus told one man to go to his friends and to tell them about the goodness of God. And the other was just denied. The call of a disciple is to deny self and to follow Jesus Christ. And there is another call to witness about the goodness of God. What is your calling? If you obeyed your calling there will be rewards in eternity, according to what you have done; which is either in new earth or in new heaven. But those who deceive others, as well as who are deceived; will be thrown in hell and then in the lake of fire. So, do what God tells you to do; don't deceive others, and most of all don't be deceived.
There are church going Christians and there are Christians who do not care about Christianity. Let us take the church going Christians. Among them, there are three groups. Jesus Christ says in John 3: "19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." Here Jesus Christ points the two of the three groups. They are; 1, the evil doers, and 2, the truth doers. They both may look alike, smile at you, and may talk to you nice. But evil doers will not come to God even though they are in church. Their destiny will be hell. Leave them alone. The truth doers will go to heaven, and our fellowship must be with them. If we are servants of God, either as a witness or as a disciple, our concern should be about the third group. They are on limbo. They may be traditional and ceremonial Christians. They know the story of Jesus Christ, his birth, death, and resurrection. But they do not know the fact that the same Jesus Christ has come back to the world in his Omnipotent Spirit, as God and as the light of the world. They do not know the teachings of Jesus Christ. If God allows us, we may help a few among them to see the Light, who is the Lord Jesus Christ in the Omnipotent Spirit, through the word of God.
Let me give the names of sins from the Bible for the benefit of believers. Most sins are done by evil people, but not by common Christians. Do not own those sins, even if some preachers try to slap them on you. These names of sins will help you to avoid speculation of what sin could be and it will give an idea of what God calls it as sin. Those who commit sins are sinners. There is no way around it. But most of you, may not be committing most of the sins in the bible. Don't imagine sins for yourself. If the bible does not call it as sin, then it is not sin. Let not the preachers tell you what sin is and what is not. Study the Bible for yourself. The names of sins that I give you from the Bible, will help you to escape deception. Preachers may ridicule and laugh at you, at the idea of not sinning. Most probably, 90 % of you may not be sinning. But you all have learned the cliché that says, "we all sin, but by the grace of God we are saved." It is trick of the devil to make you own the sins that have not committed. Check it out. Do not accept any interpretation of preachers, for what sin could be. They may show you an imaginary giant as sin that you cannot escape from. But in reality, you may easily overcome the sins you do, with a little help from God. And, do not bother about the sins that you do not do. Please know what you do, and what you don't. Get the remedy from God for the sins you do. Don't get blamed for imaginary sins.
Sins are not the ones that fly over your minds. You are not in the highest calling to be the bride of Christ to live in the exact purity that Jesus Christ lived when he was a man. Please don't speculate anything, other than actual sins. I have picked up all sins from the new testament, divided them into four categories and give my opinion and advise accordingly.
1. Sexual Sins:Adultery, fornication, vile and inordinate affections, without natural affection, filthyness, evil concupiscence. uncleanness, homosexuality, lasciviousness, lust, and whoremonger (pimp). Please notice that sexual desire is not included as sin. God has created us as man and woman and so, the desire is normal. James 1: 15 says, "Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death." Please notice the steps here. If the sexual desire is out of control, it is lust; still it is not sin. But if we entertain the lust, it will conceive and bring forth sin. That is, if you contemplate to commit adultery; stop it before you commit the act. Fulfill your desire with your spouse. I think that more than 90% of you will not commit sexual sin. If you have temptation to commit sin, ask God to give you grace and power to overcome sin. God will help you. If you are one of the few that have committed sin, repent and so on, until God Give you power and you must overcome the sin. There is no way around it. You cannot go to heaven with sins. One more thing I like to mention is this. More than 95% of you, do not do the homosexual sins. But, since it is politically correct, you stand with them to support them; but you don't have to be politically correct; God is against it. To the rest of you, please stand tall and tell the preachers that you don't do such things. You do not need a short-circuited method to go to heaven with your sins. The short-circuited way to go to heaven is fake and deception anyway. There is no such a thing. Let me continue with other sins.
2. Sins of Evil people: Evil doers are ungodly people, even if they are in churches. God hates them. They will not come to the Light, who is God. They do Murder, anything evil, wickedness, deceit, despiteful (hatred), inventors of evil things, covenant breakers, unmerciful, drunkards, revilers, extortion, anger, malice, filthy communication, maliciousness, malignity, whisper, backbite, wrath, strife, and sedition (which opposes the law). Please listen; they are terrible things. We must not be afraid to say that we will not do such things. If it happens that any of you did any of these by accident, denounce it immediately, repent, do the required restitution, and get out of it so that god may have mercy on you.
3. Sins against God: Change the truth of God, and implacable, (these are twisting the word of God), heresies, blasphemy, blasphemy against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven, preachers do such sins against God, they will be damned if they do not rectify it. They know what to do. Then, witchcraft and idol worship, are serious sins; but Christians may not do them. Unrighteousness, it is disobeying God, believers may do it by ignorance. God will be merciful to them if they repent.
4. Social and Moral Sins: Reveling, vanity in mind, foolish talking, jesting, lie to one another, debate, disobedient to parents, covetousness, emulation (want to win everything), without understanding, envy, theft, false witness, and variance. Christians do these because of ignorance, immaturity, want to be accepted in society, different moral standards, etc. They can knock them out if they put their minds to it, and ask God to give them grace, power, and spirit to overcome them. God will help them. Even though these are not considered as heavy-duty sins, don't do them. Any sin will bring eternal death.
There are two dangerous and sneaky sins. They are pride and being deceived. They both go hand in hand. Pride will make you think that you know it all. If so, you will be a perfect victim to a con artist preacher, and you will be definitely deceived. So, humble yourself to God and receive his grace. Then the devil cannot deceive you.
Doing what God tells us to do, is righteousness and disobeying God is sin. Did God call you to be a believer, or to be his disciple? If you are called to be a believer, don't try to be his disciple. God knows what you can do and what you will do. If you are a believer, you will go to heaven, which is paradise, which is the garden of God. To obey God in this level, is much easier than to preach false doctrine and go to hell. I am very much grieved to say that 90% of Christian preachers will work very hard to be prominent by deceiving Christians and will end up in hell fire. Please don't be deceived by them. Study the word of God by yourself. Please don't read the bible ceremonially. Study it to obey it. And obey God in your level. 1 John 5:3 says, "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous." If you love God, obey him. As a believer or as a witness, you will qualify heaven. Without getting into deception, try the next level, and the level above that, as much as you can. You will make it to higher levels, with the grace and power of God. The holy spirit will guide you.
Thank you for listening. God bless you.

We all agree that Jesus did not commit any sin. We may further say that Jesus was the only one person, who did not commit any sin. We base this from scriptures. Jesus asked the Jews in John 8:46, "Which of you convinceth me of sin?" Nobody convinced him of any sin. So, he did not have any sin. "2 Corinthians 5:21 says, For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;.." Since he did not know any sin, he is not a sinner. "Hebrews 4:15 ... but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." The verse says that he was without sin. "Hebrews 7:26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;" He is holy, undefiled; so, he is not a sinner. "1 Peter 2:22 Who did no sin,... " Again, he did not commit any sin, and he is not a sinner. However, the bible says a few more passage that we must look into. "John 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God." So, according to the word of God, Jesus broke the law of God when he was a man. Then how come it was not sin? Jesus reviled in Matthew 23, at the scribes and the Pharisees who sit on Moses' seat, from verse 4 until the end of the chapter, with all kinds of rebukes. He told them "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!" many times. He called them blind guides, fools, and they are full of extortion and excess. He called them whited sepulchres, killer of the prophets, Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how could they escape the damnation of hell? Even cursed them saying that their house will be left unto them desolate; might have meant even their temple. They were supposed to be the people of God and they represent God. These were too much of an insult and attack on them. How come this is not sin? What is SIN? What all things that you do what God tells you to do, will be counted for your righteousness. If you not do them, it will be counted as Sin. And the Truth is righteousness, and Lie is Sin. "Hebrews 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second." God the Father sent God the Word as a man, to expose the Lie, to remove the facade of sin sacrifice, the ceremonial worship, and the system of priesthood. Jesus was just doing the will of God the Father, so it was righteousness. "John 15:10 ... even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love." Jesus was obeying God the Father and abiding in his will. But Satan has re-established the priesthood back in the form of our clergy system. We happened to submit ourselves to it. If we tell the truth, and call the hypocrites as hypocrite, it will not be sin in the sight of God, but of course it will not be politically correct.

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: 7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. 8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
