Are these 2 Bible verses true ?

1 John 3:8 “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil”.

3:9 “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God”.

Are these 2 Bible verses true ?

Okay, daredevil, if you believe it as it says and taking it out of context, then you are saying that another verse and verses are not true. What about:

For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Rom. 3:23

Also, look at this:

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Rom. 6:12-14

Okay, it doesn’t say that you will now never commit any small sin ever for the rest of your life. It says let not sin reign in your mortal flesh. In other words if you see that you slipped, then repent and correct yourself.

For sin shall not have dominion over you means you will not be utterly given over to sin. When it says you are not under the law but under grace, it means you don’t have to worry yourself to death about the rules all the time. What you do is pray, spend time with the Lord, stay close to God and walk in the spirit and you will be doing right and well.
