Because of salvation through Christ’s sacrifice we are free from the burden of the Law. However, while we are free from the constraints of legalism, sin will ultimately hurt you. In 1 Corinthians 6:12 Paul says “Everything is permissible for me” – but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me” – but I will not be mastered by anything. Immorality and addiction are both examples of sin we are forgiven of, but if we choose to allow them into our lives, they will ultimately harm us.
