    • Demonic, evil, misery, death

Human vs new life context

“Human” vs. “New” Life-Context

  • Human Life-Context

    • Those fallen into the power of sin

    • “Human nature outside of Christ”

    • Those who belong to the world:

      • Sinners

      • Those who participate in sin

      • Those who experience the judgment of sin

  • New Life-Context

    • Those no longer in the “world”

    • “World” crucified to them and them to it

    • Those no longer conformed to the “world”


Universality of sin

Universality of Sin

  • Rom. 3:10-20 – None are righteous

  • Rom. 3:23 – All have sinned

  • Rom. 5:12-21

    • Not about universality of sin

    • Not about how sin is propagated

    • But a connection with Christ’s righteousness & life

    • And a connection with Adam’s sin & death

  • Through Adam sin was given access to the world

  • Death emphasized as the result of sin


Universality of sin1

Universality of Sin

  • Flesh (defined)

    • All that is man

    • All that is sinful in man

  • Flesh is Represented by Paul as:

    • Human weakness

    • Dependence on God

    • That which is perishable

    • Man in his sin and depravity

    • Human Being / Sinner

  • Emphasis not on individual sins of a man, but the power of sin over all.
