Ok. So thanks for answering part of my inquiry (I'm sure the only part you felt comfortable with answering).

I actually find the scriptures you pointed to contradictory to the actual truth that is we are no longer sinners once we have put our faith in Christ. Just as Abraham was considered as righteous for believing God so are we for believing in his son. The scripture about breaking one law and being guilty of them all is God's way of showing us that we can never earn righteousness on our own and proves that we needed a savior (which we have). Jesus did the work and took away the sins of the world

John 1:29
29The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world

I only made my first comment because since I have been viewing this board I have seen a lot of hypocrisy due to what I believe is the shame you people feel for who you are and who God created you to be.

14 What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! 15 For he says to Moses,

“I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,
and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”[f]

16 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. 17 For Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”[g] 18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.

19 One of you will say to me: “Then why does God still blame us? For who is able to resist his will?” 20 But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’”[h] 21 Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?

22 What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction? 23 What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory— 24 even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? 25 As he says in Hosea:

“I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people;
and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,”[i]

26 and,

“In the very place where it was said to them,
‘You are not my people,’
there they will be called ‘children of the living God.’”[j]

I have nothing more to say but one day the full truth will be revealed and people will begin depending on the Holy Spirit to lead and guide them into ALL truth as he does to this day for so many including me.

Scripture: John 16:12-15

12 "I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
