Discussion for Romans 7

  • Neysa Martin
    I first read Romans 7:14-25 after asking the question, why do I continue to do the same things over and over again? I was searching the Bible for answers and found this chapter and verses and I understood completely, what a revelation!

  • Elisabeth
    We died to sin, its no longer I that liveth, but Christ that liveth in me. We died with Christ,the old body of sin has been destroyed. Now if we sin, its not us, but sin that lives in the flesh. THEN if its not us, we are not to be blamed.Cant blame a dead man..There is therefore no condemnation..Thats why I John 1:9 means this: to become saved, you have to confess homo-logeo , to say the same thing as God, that we are sinners, then believe Jesus took our sins in his body on the cross and died for them..Then we receive His righteousness as a gift..He only died once for your sins. don't have to repeat I John 1 9, thats to nail Him on the cross again..

    With out the Lord we are weak souls, therefor we need Jesus for strength to defeat evil! Other wise without Jesus we are all evildoers and will not be excepted in to paradise.
