    God has given us salvation from our sins based upon mercy, not merit.

    Is there no merit in not "sinning"?

    Existence is God; therefore, the author of existence is good, and the whole of the universe is glorious.

    For actions. God creating time - for starters.

    Show me anyone who has "not sinned".

    And you call yourself a pragmatist.

    I said nothing about anyone who has "not sinned". In response to what KellyJay posted, I asked "Is there no merit in not "sinning"?" The question is about the word "merit".

    Yes but do you know anyone who has lived a sinless life?

    That isn't what I am asked you about. According to your beliefs about "sin", is there merit in not "sinning"? You believe you are "saved" by your god figure and that you are "saved" regardless of "merit".

    Suzianne and KellyJay, there either is merit in not "sinning" [when one could] or there is not merit in not "sinning".

    I don't know anyone who both believes in "sin" and believes that they don't "sin". If there were a person who did not "sin", could that be described as of "merit"?

    Yes any of us can go to God for His mercy regardless of our merits, because all of us do not deserve His mercy. We are all sinners and totally undeserving of God’s grace. Yet Christ laid down His life for us due to God’s love for us, not because we were worthy.

    You should know this!

    Standing before God all doubts and confusion will be removed as well as excuses.

    I am asking you a very straightforward question: Is there no merit in not "sinning"?
