    ...after they accepts Christ into their lives?

    Many say they have accepted Christ find ways to continue in sin or hold on to it or desire to sin once they have accepted Christ. Is it possible to be saved while continue holding on to sin or find rationalizations to allow sin after we are spiritually reborn, can we continue seeking to sin after we are converted and still have eternal life....

    1 John 3:4
    Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

    Do you mean the 613 laws of Moses?

    Who gave them the 10 Commandments Moses or God? Check the scriptures and you will see......

    Exodus 20


    1And God spake all these words, saying,
    2I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
    3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
    4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
    5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
    6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
    7Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
    8Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
    9Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
    10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
    11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
    12Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
    13Thou shalt not kill.
    14Thou shalt not commit adultery.
    15Thou shalt not steal.
    16Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. 17Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ***, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

    1 Corinth 9:20
    To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law.
    Gal 5:14
    The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."
    Rom 13:8
    Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.

    Righteousness Through Faith

    21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in[h] Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement,[i] through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
    27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith. 28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law. 29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, 30 since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. 31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.

    And we do so by loving our neighbor not by keeping shadows of things already come

    So we can ignore loving God and worship other gods and idols or pagan things and reject the Sabbath God made for us so we can take time to be with Him. You cant just choose and pick what is sin, God laid it out...

    NO. Christians must not continue in sin if he/she accepted the grace of Christ. the Bible says "Shall we continue in sin so that grace may abound? Certainly not. Even if we already received Christ as our Savior still we have to follow God's Laws for us to be truly born again or spiritually reborn. If we continue in sin, for sure dont expect to have eternal life.

    That is right, but many want to hold on to their sin and yet say they are under grace, thats cheap grace and will not work and they will be surprised at the end.

    continuing in sin will eventually get you cut off from the lord. and the longer you avoid repenting the harder it becomes to do so.
