“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”
King James Version (KJV)

Kay : To say that you live a sinless life is to down play the precious blood of Jesus Christ , Those who claim to live sinless do not mean to do this but that is exactly what they are doing ! if sinless perfection had ever been possible to achieve then Jesus shed his Sinless Blood in vain !

Romans 6:1. Is continuing from ch 5 where Paul explains how the law slew us because we were Kinsman of Adam,
And those who "TRULY" accepted Christ has been baptized into Christ has been baptized into his death and given power over the "DOMINION" of sin.
Romans 6:1-2 (KJV) What shall we say then? Shall we "CONTINUE IN SIN", that grace may abound?
God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, "LIVE ANY LONGER THEREIN"?
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
I've highlighted key phrases such as Dominion, Continue in sin, Live any longer therein. and other places you will words like "practice"
These words and phrases suggest a person born again want CONTINUE living in sin, but it doesn't say they will ever be able to live a sinless life.
Paul elaborates on this in Romans 7.
Also see John here:
1 John 1:6-10 (KJV) If we say that we have fellowship with him, and ""WALK"" in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the BLOOD of Jesus Christ his Son CLEANSETH us from all sin.
VS 8: IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE ( NO SIN) WE DECEIVE OURSELVES, AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN US.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
VS 10: IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE (NOTSINNED) WE MAKE HIM A LIAR, AND HIS WORD IS NOT IN US.
I hope that helps.

So are you saying we can be sinless , If a christian sins occasionally does that mean he is lost again

This p***age deals with what the world really needs to grab hold today. We are responsible for our actions and our choices. To live for Christ is a choice that we make and learning what we must live by His guidance and His words. Sin also is a choice and we need to know that it separates us from Christ. Separation is not the place we want to be if we truly love the Lord. Choose ye this day whom you will serve.
