Paul recognized he had no ppower to change and stop sinning because he still had to struggle with the flesh, but when he realized all his sufficiency was in christ power not his!!!!!

I believe that when Paul was speaking of this the things that he did that was good as he turned from the right to the left evil was right in his face but he fell into sin at some moment because of the evil that dwells in his flesh that 's why we as men and women of God must stay focused and feed our spirit much more than our flesh whichever one we feed the most that 's the one that will dominate

It happen so regular that it 's predictable. The moment I do good , sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God 's commands, but it pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight

I agree, this is good. I believe we can live free of sin.

I believe what Paul is saying is true that no good thing dwells in the flesh and considering that the flesh is forever present so is evil

even though we have been born again by the holy incorruptible seed of the word of god we still live in fleshly bodies and our flesh or the carnal nature is always trying to dictate to us what to do or obey the lust or desire of the flesh

 


Michael's comment on 2012-12-08 15:17:08:

I believe that our flesh is alays trying to pull our spirit to reject the goodness we desire of God. Its origin can be traced to our free will in the Torah.

I agree with Paul. The more you try to do good and be obedient to God, evil is always present around you
