It’s one or the other

We either accept Christ and deny sin or we accept sin and deny Christ. We can’t accept Christ and accept sin. If we knowingly continue sinning without fighting it, we have just accepted it.

Here is how the apostle John put it:
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:5-7
