We can turn from sin; "for there has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man, but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but will with the temptation also make a way out that you may be able to bear it" 1 Corinthians 10:13

2 Peter 2:9 1 John 2:1 ( without reading the context; 1 John 1:9-10 and 1 John 2:1, you can not understand 1 John 1:8. John was saying to "little children" (new Christians) that they had sin they needed to confess and deal with, and to not deny that, but go on and confess it so that Christ can help them with it, and thereby; 1 John 2:1 and 1 John 2:3-4 )
Hebrews 5:8-9 Hebrews 9:13-14 Philippians 1:6

And most importantly; Luke 6:27-48, Matthew 7:24-27
There is no dispute that we are to, and can, put the teachings of Christ into practice; 2 John 1:9
Doing so will lead us away from all other sin; John 14:15-17 Galatians 5:18-24
"For they that are Christs have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts" Galatians 5:24

Here is the correct understanding of 2 John 1:9 for it is Johns complete summary of the good news;

"Whosoever transgresses ( breaks the Torah 1 John 3:4 ) and abides not in the doctrine { Matthew 7:28 } of Christ, has not God. Whoever abides in the doctrine { Luke 6:27-48 } of Christ has both the Father and the Son"

Therefore we are allowed to break many a rule, so long as the core, of the Torah, is followed;
Matthew 7:12;
"the law" = Exodus 23:4-5 Exodus 23:9 Leviticus 19:18 Leviticus 19:33-34
"the prophets" = Isaiah 58:5-10 Jeremiah 22:2-5 Zechariah 8:14-17

( And you should actually read the verses before you think that they all do not say "do unto others"
For indeed, that is what they all clearly say! )

For Christ came not to do away with the law, but to magnify it and make it honorable;
Isaiah 42:21
