Are Christians sinners?

Tradition speaks in terms of Christians still being sinners in spite of the cross. To think otherwise is just going against the norm.

But, scriptures seem to suggest otherwise. Below are a few.

1Peter 4:18 “If the righteous scarcely be saved, Where shall the ungodly and sinner appear?”
Here God tells us that there are 2 different groups of people.
Group 1: Righteous
Group 2: Ungodly, Sinner.
It appears you are either righteous OR a sinner. You can’t be both.

1John3:6-9 even says Christians “cannot sin” and that those who sin are “of the devil”.

John8:34-36 tells us that “whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. therefore if the Son makes you free you shall be free indeed.”

Romans6:2 asks “HOW shall we that are dead to sin, live any longer in it?”

We’ve all been raised up under the traditional belief that Christians are still sinners, but I am hoping the forum discussion will focus on why God says in scriptures, such as above, that Christians are not sinners.
