"Strive for Perfection"

If it is not our aim to be perfect, we are actually resisting the Holy Spirit. The danger of deliberate sin. Failure to strive for perfection causes confusion about absolutes (sitational ethics). Sin deludes us into thinking that we are saved when we are not. No haggling over what is right. When we lose love for God, we have lost our salvation. We can be able to thank God in any adversity.
