We are all sinners

A selection of verses telling us that we all continually sin:

Ecclesiastes 7 verse 20

20 Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and doesn’t sin.

Romans 3 verse 23

23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

Romans 5 verse 12

12 Therefore as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin; so death passed to all men, because all sinned.

James 3 verse 2

2 For we all stumble in many things. Anyone who doesn’t stumble in word is a perfect person, able to bridle the whole body also.

1 John 1 verses 8 - 10

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we haven’t sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
