I certainly agree with him.

In my small corner of the world, I find that so many believe that once they sin they are still God's child and it is only fellowship that is lost. They simply cannot grasp that when they sin, they are no longer God's child and He has no part with them.
It is important to note that Dake did not teach sinning saint theology. He was very clear in his teaching that one born again and in Christ is not in sin, nor sinning. When a saint chooses the path of evil, they are no longer in Christ serving God, but they serve satan. I think this is where things can get confused.
In my view, I think Dake was spot on about the child of God and whom he serves. If you look in Dake's book Bible Truths Unmasked and read chapter eight and study all the scriptures he gives, this might be a true enlightenment of what Dake taught on the matter of sin and the born again child of God.
Dake even made the statement, "Do not let men deceive you into thinking that there is no such thing as a clean, holy, and victorious life in Christ secure from sin, the flesh, the world, and the devil. If you are not saved from these things you are not saved from Hell, according to the scriptures in Point 10." ( Point 10 deals with 1 Cor 6:11)
It is well worth the read and a comprehensive study of all the references Dake gives concerning this subject.
