Rom 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. 253 more words
Again this post following on from the previous, strangely parallels my recent material, as well as much older material because Romans 7 is my "favourite" subject? The only reservation I have is his mention of obedience to law which he does not seem to clarify explicitly to the point of agreeing that "He has abolished the law". We are no longer under law, so we certainly should not be trying to "keep" it. However, other than this possibly unfounded "accusation", it seems pretty good. BE CAREFUL ABOUT LAW. THE LAW WAS AGAINST US AND THAT'S WHY IT WAS TAKEN AWAY. IT WAS THERE TO BRING US TO CHRIST, SO WE WOULD THEN LIVE BY THE SPIRIT, AS WAS ALWAYS INTENDED. COLOSSIANS. 2-14. On further looking at this article, it appears he may be under the misapprehension that Paul in 7 is speaking as a Christian, which is of course, wrong. Paul is relating his experience as one under law, and explaining why we had to die to the law, which we did through the body of Christ. We do not now reference law at all, but are led by the Spirit. Galatians explains the problem of those wanting to follow, be led by, the law. It was because of law that Christ died, to annul [abolish] the law (of sin and death.) His "Romans 7 Christian" is an oxymoron. (Contradiction in terms).
