I’m not sure if this subject has been discussed here or not but I thought I would throw it out for a general discussion.
My question: Is it possible to live WITHOUT ever committing a sin?
About 5 years ago I set out to see if that was possible (at least for me). Of course, I knew I would need help so I made some major changes in my life. For instance, I increased the frequency of attending Mass and Communion, not only on the weekend but as many times in the week as possible. I also started praying the Rosary everyday (sometimes several times a day). In addition, I composed a personal “forgiveness” prayer and say that in combination with an Act of Contrition 3 times a day (morning, noon and night). I also stated following the First Friday Devotions. I’ve got pictures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Blessed Mother and various Saints posted all over my apartment but yet I just can’t seem to go completely without sin. Sometimes I have a tendency to repeat the same sins over and over again even though I humbly ask God (everyday) to keep me away from those sins so after doing all this for 5 years I have come to the conclusion it is impossible to live without sinning. From my understanding the only persons to ever live on earth that never sinned were Jesus and His Blessed Mother but I’m sure she had “special” help from her Son (who is God).
I should also point out that although I have not accomplished my goal, I will still keep trying.
Thanks and May God be with all of you!!
