    Yes, good stuff! I enjoyed all the comments and appreciate this forum. I think Paul puts it in straightforward terms that we are to live new lives, as servants of God.

    The blood of bulls and goats 'FORGAVE' sin. Not only did it forgive sin, but it cleansed the flesh from sin for A WHOLE YEAR! How much more the blood of CHRIST!!!
  • Bill Bats
    I hope the romans figured out what dead to sin means. Paul almost promotes sin in the previous chapters and here he I believe sets the truth out for the romans again like he did in romans chapter one. Great stuff. Some see death to sin as a mystery but I think it's plain to see.
  • Gay Amutuhaire
    This chapter is often misinterpreted to mean that man can sin all he wants and still be assured of an everlasting life because Jesus Christ already paid for their sins!. In my opinion, this chapter means Christ died so we may be forgiven, we should live Christ-like lives to be able to see the heavens otherwise we are doomed unless we repent for the shortfalls

    Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he CANNOT SIN, because he is born of God. 1John3:9 Holy to the Lord!
  • Cheryl Blanton
    People are being mislead about Romans 6:14-15 and taken out of context. I encourage you to read the entire chapter to fully understand. Some folks believe that because of verse 14 they can sin whenever they want and GOD will continue to butys no attention to the last two words in verse 15.
