If there is the slightest possibility of God existing and that He has sent His only begotten Son Jesus to be your savior from your transgressions, wouldn’t it be wise to investigate it for yourself?
If you had evidence beyond doubt that God exists as described in the Holy Bible and that He loves you and wants you to be in Heaven with Him forever, would you want to be in Heaven with Him too?

    Christians tend to fall into sin after coming to Jesus Christ, but it is not willful sin but accidental sin. To say that you are sinless is not correct. When Christians get the holy spirit the demons that were operating in their lives will be paralyzed plus the fear of God keeps them from committing willful sin, but they can fall into accidental sin and repent because that is what the blood of the lord Jesus Christ was meant for.

      You are mistaken in thinking that Christians (followers of Christ Jesus) cannot fall into “willful sin” per what is taught in the Bible. This type of thinking (a Christian cannot willing sin) can lead a Christian directly into sinning.

      The Bible sometimes draws distinctions between deliberate known, unintentional known and unintentional hidden (accidental) sin. Many times, they are lumped together in the words related to sin. This is similar to how sometimes the Bible draws distinctions between imputed sin (see Romans 5:18), the inherited Adamic sinful nature (Colossians 3:9), sinful words (see James 3:8) and sinful thoughts (see Matthew 15:19). At other times, the Scriptures combine two or more of these together in words related to sin.
      It is difficult in some cases to know whether a particular sin we battle with has all deliberate aspects known to us or whether it also has some unintentional aspects as well. For example, does a certain fear we fight have some underlying hidden unintentional aspects that magnify it? This is why we need God’s guidance about such matters.

      A deliberate known sin occurs when a person who knows God’s revealed will written in the Bible or on his conscience or spoken to him by the Holy Spirit, chooses deliberately to disobey. (Note all guidance from the Holy Spirit will never be contrary to the teachings of the Bible). It can also be called intentional known sin.
      Deliberate known sin is specifically spoken of in Exodus 21:14, Numbers 15:30, Deuteronomy 1:43, 17:12, 17:13, 18:20, 18:22, Psalm 19:13, Luke 12:47-48, John 15:22 and
      Romans 7:7. In Psalm 19:12-13, David draws a distinction between hidden sin and presumptuous sins: “…Cleanse me from secret faults. Keep back Your servant also from
      presumptuous sins…”

      The distinctions between known and unintentional sin are not only found in the Mosaic Law. In Luke 12:47-48, Jesus drew a clear distinction between deliberate known sin and unintentional hidden sin: “And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.”

      There are two types of unintentional sin:
      · Unintentional hidden (accidental) sin see Leviticus 4:13-35 and 5:14-19. Such hidden sin can take two forms. The first of these is any disobedience to a specific Biblical command when the offendant was unaware of the command. The second form of hidden sin relates to any area in our lives in which we are not like Jesus Christ in character to the degree created beings are able.
      · Unintentional known sin. This involves an unplanned or unintended disobedience to a Biblical command which the offender knew. He accidentally did evil.
      Leviticus 4:1-12 and Numbers 15:22-29 refers to unintentional sin in general.

      Many more verses in the Bible relate to sin and the overall theme of the Bible is that you and I willingly sin, regardless of our acceptance of Christ Jesus or not.

      You and I even as followers of Christ are sinful. We Christians sin willingly knowingly and unknowingly, even though we follow Christ Jesus. To say that a Christian does not willingly sin is in itself sinning per the Bible.

    accepting the lord Jesus Christ will aid in living holy life, because you will end up hating what Christ hates and love what Christ loves, and this will go a long way in making sin to be quenched in your life.
