And even if we didn’t do them, we certainly have been tempted to do them recently.

ROM 7:14-24

Evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good.

Left to my one devices, I will always end up in a prison, a wretched, wretched man.

…without regard to the interests or concerns of any other group.

They just ignore them, go into denial, convince themselves that there is no such thing really as sinning.

Others think that the way to overcome sin is through sheer willpower.

ROM 7:7-8

But does any of that remove sin which dwells in us?

GAL 5:1-6
