Discussion for Romans 8:36

  • Dan Craig for verse 36
    I just returned from church today after hearing a local preacher's take on Romans 8:36 and surrounding verses. First, he taught that the one exception to nothing separating us from the love of Christ is ourselves. I disagreed with that, or I should say it is frightening, because I am who I fear the most in the matters of faith. But to the specific verse mentioned, I feel the sentence of death every day. Again, struggles with myself, the flesh, are a determined foe, everyday. It is like a death sentence. Thank the Lord that we have life in the spirit if we choose to walk, think and live in it.
