Now there’s a question that I’ve asked often and hear others ask regularly also. Graeme, our good friend at the place of mybroom, puts together a very well thought out approach to this question.
He acknowledges, “Your spirit cannot sin, 1 John 3:9 says “whoever has been born of God does not sin”, your spirit has the very nature of God, the old nature is gone… to be born of God means that the sinning part of our spirit was killed, and we were re-born with Christ’s perfection.“
Note that he says, “Your spirit cannot sin.” What role then does our soul and body play in this effort? I’m not spilling the beans, but will provide a link here so that you can see his conclusion. Interesting take… one that’s worth a moment of our time.
