Philippians 3:12 (KJV) Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
The Apostle Paul writing to the Philippians is not claiming sinless perfection. Paul’s goal is to pursue absolute Christ-likeness. He said he was saved by Jesus Christ for the purpose of being Christ like. We are saved for the same purpose.
(Read 1 Corinthians 9:24)
