"I know that in me... nothing good dwells..."
Text: Romans 7:18
PAUL’S REALISTIC VIEW OF SIN AND MAN
How should we understand Paul’s view of man and sin? For that matter how may we reconcile his lofty doctrine of justification and the sobering doctrine of sin? To say the least, Paul’s view of sin and man is very humbling indeed.
“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells;
for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good
I do not find.”
