Debate's Pivotal Moment

During the first night of the debate, while in my second speech, Steve Wolfgang, moderator for John Gentry, called a point of order. He said that I misrepresented John in saying that John said that "does not commit sin," in I John 3: 9, meant "does not practice sin." He stated that John had not said this, but had rather said - "does not keep on sinning." I then said, "okay, I will rephrase." After I restarted my speech, I said - "what is the difference between 'practice sin' and "keep on sinning'?

The next night of the debate, ironically, John cited A. T. Robertson on the passage where Robertson said the meaning was "does not practice sin," endorsing Robertson's words!
