There is averse I think Paul said it but I can't find it please help me. It says that nothing we do will send us to hell now that we are believers BUT that doesn't give us the right to sin.

  • are you thinking of romans 6:1-5? "1What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
    5If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection."

  • Hebrews 12:7-13 shows that we are forgiven but still have a lesson to learn

  • Hebrews 10:26, 27 states that “if we practice sin willfully after having received the accurate knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice for sins left, but there is a certain fearful expectation of judgment and there is a fiery jealousy that is going to consume those in opposition.”
    but John also makes a distinction between a single sin and the practice of sinning as is shown by a comparison of 1 John 2:1 and 1 John 3:4-8.
