Romans 6:10 “…in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God”
14 “…sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace”
Although we will sin as we still have the sin nature after salvation, we have died to sin and its power through Christ’s death. Sin no longer has power over us. We can choose to live for Christ. We are no longer slaves to sin.
Romans 7:3 “…if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress”
Obviously, Paul was assuming sexual relations in marriage. Points to my observation that marriage in the mind of early man was based on intercourse. You were married to the person you had intercourse with. With such mistaken ideas on sexual promiscuity, it’s no wonder marriage is in such shambles.
23 “But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.”
Salvation creates a new inner man which is not enslaved to sin and wants to follow the law, the way of Christ. But we are still attached to this fleshly body with its sin nature and will be until it dies or is directly transformed at Christ’s return.
