Conflict of Interest
October 31, 2019 @ 02:35:53 pm
Romans 7:15 - I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. - When the Apostle Paul wrote this about 57 A.D. he was talking about his sinful nature that he well knew all Christians have. That is having faith in Christ but at the same time occasionally doing something that we know Christ is opposed to. Sometimes we all give in to our temptations (I know I do) and later we wonder why. Today this is commonly called our dual nature and whether we like it or not or believe it or not the Bible teaches that all Christians have it. As we are told in Galatians 5:17 - For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. - . So how can we deal with this problem, what can we do about it? All we can do is ask God for strength in struggling against it. That should be our main interest.
