Can you sin after being baptized or are you saved from sinning?


Can you sin after being baptized or are you saved from sinning?
Name: Huey Freeman
Add a little more detail (optional): I was told that I was saved from sin

Baptising does not save you.  Faith in Christ saves.  Christians sin all the time but God will forgive us if we confess our sins to Him.  The unsaved loves sinning, the Christian hates sinning.

 

Romans 7: 14 ¶  For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15  For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16  If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17  Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18  For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
19  For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20  Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
21  I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
22  For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
23  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
1 ¶  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
 

Hi Huey Freeman,

Yes, you can sin after baptism. If you were baptized, could you explain why you were baptized? Did someone tell you the baptism saved you from sin?

Thanks,

Dave
