Ok, I'll say that it says we cannot sin. However, the statement is still not incorrect even if you want to look at it that way.
5 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the
law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you[a] alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having
canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.
These two verses explain why God views our SPIRIT not our FLESH as sin free. Colossians 2 explains why God is allowed to view Christians as sin free,
and why Paul says that it isn't he(his spirit) that sins, but rather the sin living in him(Flesh). John is referring to our spirit being clean before
God's eyes. If that doesn't make sense then I don't know how to help you grasp the concepts.
