Thank you very much for talking about the subject of ongoing sin. How does your honest recognition of the reality of ongoing sin, after baptism, fit in with your understanding of the assurance of salvation? Surely if a Christian can and does sin after baptism, then they are not saved from sin, and hence not saved from its consequences. And, if they sin gravely after baptism, they may commit the sin that leads to death (1 John 5:16) and could no longer have a genuine assurance of salvation. Does having an assurance of salvation entail that you don’t sin or does not sinning entail that you have an assurance of salvation?
If you are truly saved, you are justified, and those whom God justified He also glorified (Romans 8:29-30).
