Can sin condemn a Christian?

A Mr. Bill Foster, Baptist preacher in Louisville, KY made this comment: “If I killed my wife and mother and debauched a thousand women I couldn’t go to hell—in fact, I couldn’t go to hell if I wanted to.” (End quotations. Emphasis from The Light).

Is this true? Can a Christian choose to sin and still be on the narrow path to the Kingdom? The answer is an obvious NO. This is not true.

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. 17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. 19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Gal 5:16-21).

Paul is clear here anyone who partakes in the lusts of the flesh will not inherit the Kingdom of God. As the Bible tells us sin separates us from God.
