No one is exempt from sin. Some believe that they have a license to sin once they've been saved. If you think that way, you might be lost because once you've been saved you're a new creature and will not want sin in your life. Most sin is brought about by the lust of the flesh. It's not a sin to have nice things or things that you want but if God said not to have it, it's a sin to have them because you disobeyed Gods Word. The devil watches and knows what your tempted with and will use those to pull you away from God. Once you take action on covetousness then you've made a choice therefore conceiving sin. Being by yourself means you have no accountability and you're likely to stumble more often. Being idle too long will cause one to fall into sin. Surrounding yourself with other Christians will keep you from sinning than being left alone. Anything that you've got to hide in secret is wrong. So if you can't tell anyone else about it or do it in secret, then you need to ask God if it's of Him. What good is sin and how does it benefit us? If one brings sin into their life it WILL affect everyone around them. Sin will ALWAYS bring forth death, always have, always will.

13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. 16Do not err, my beloved brethren. (KJV)
19And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. 20And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done: 21When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. 22So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. 23And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD. 24And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.
