Most Christians today believe God does not expect them to stop living a sinful lifestyle. Do not all Christians sin? Most churches do not preach that Christian should live a life of holiness. Do not all Christians sin on occasion? Yes, they do. If you are once saved always saved as some contend then you can live a sinful lifestyle and still be saved.

Does repentance include changing the way you live your life?

Romans 6:1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue to sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?(NKJV)

Jesus told the women caught in adultery to go and sin no more, He did not tell her to continue in adultery because we all sin. (John 8:1-12)

Jesus told men to repent or perish. He did not say you are all sinners saved by grace and you can never be lost. (Luke 13:1-5)

Jesus told the man that he cured of his thirty-eight year infirmity to sin no more. (John 5:1-14)

The apostle Paul told the followers of Christ to stop sinning or face the wrath of God.

 Ephesians 5:1-6.....3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting , but rather giving thanks. 5 For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man , who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.(NKJV)

Also see: 1 Corinthians 6:1-11 and Galatians 5:16-21.

God never advised Christian that they could continue a sinful lifestyle because they were once saved always saved.

Yes, all Christians sin on occasion, but not all Christians are sinners.

1 John 1:5-10.....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 just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.(NKJV)

Christians are to confess sins to God the Father, not a priest nor preacher. The Advocate is Jesus Christ. (1 John 2:1-2)

What will be the fate of unrepentant Christians? You make the call.

Once saved always saved. I do not think so.
