717-The Indwelling Sin Nature Is The Source Of
Personal Sin In The Christians LifeLesson 229
3
Please turn in your Bibles to Romans 714.
4
This morning we will study Romans 717 in which
Paul presents the logical conclusion that he
possesses as a Christian, a sin nature and which
conclusion agrees with his claim in verse 14 and
is based upon the evidence presented by him in
verses 15-16.
5
Romans 714, For we know that the Law is
spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage
to sin.
6
Romans 715, For what I am doing, I do not
understand for I am not practicing what I would
like to do, but I am doing the very thing I
hate.
7
Romans 716, But if I do the very thing I do not
want to do, I agree with the Law, confessing that
the Law is good.
8
Romans 717, So now, no longer am I the one
doing it, but sin which dwells in me.
9
So is the resumptive use of the post-positive
conjunction de (deV), which introduces a
statement that reiterates or resumes Pauls
argument in Romans 714 where he acknowledges
that the Law is spiritual but that he is
unspiritual because he still possesses a sin
nature.
10
Now is the adverb nuni (nuniv) (noo-nee), which
is functioning in a logical rather than
temporal sense meaning that it is introducing
an inference or a conclusion based upon the
evidence presented by Paul in Romans 715-16,
which proves he has a sin nature that influences
him to sin against the Law.
11
The adverb nuni introduces a statement that
presents the logical conclusion that Paul
possesses a sin nature that agrees with Pauls
claim in verse 14 that he possesses a sin nature
and this logical conclusion is based upon the
evidence presented by him in verses 15-16.
12
No longer is the adverb ouketi (ou)kevti)
(ook-et-ee), which is used in a logical rather
than a temporal sense expressing an absolute,
direct and full negation that Paul is the source
of sin in his life but rather his sin nature.
13
I is the personal pronoun ego (e)gwv) (eg-o),
which refers of course to Paul as a Christian and
is used for emphasis in a contrast meaning that
the word emphasizes Paul in contrast with his sin
nature.
14
The one doing is the verb katergazomai
(katergavzomai) (kat-er-gad-zo-my), which means,
to produce acts of sin.
15
The verbs meaning is negated by the adverb
ouketi, no longer emphatically indicating that
Paul is not the source from which he commits sin.
16
It is the intensive personal pronoun autos
(au)tov) (ow-tos), which is correctly translated
and refers to personal acts of sin in violation
of the Mosaic Law.
17
Romans 717, So now, no longer am I the one
doing it, but sin which dwells in me.
18
Rather is the strong adversative use of the
conjunction alla (a)llav) (al-lah), which
introduces a statement that presents a strong
contrast with the idea that Paul is the source of
personal sin in his life.
19
Sin is the noun hamartia (a(martiva)
(ham-ar-tee-ah), which refers to the sin nature
as indicated in that the word is being
personified by the verb oikeo, which dwells,
which means, to occupy as one would a house.
20
Which dwells is the verb oikeo (oi)kevw)
(oy-keh-o), which is used in a metaphorical sense
for the sin nature indwelling the physical body
of the believer.
21
In me is composed of the preposition en (e)n),
in and the personal pronoun ego (e)gwv), me.
22
The personal pronoun refers of course to the
apostle Paul as a Christian and in particular it
is emphasizes the physical body of the apostle
Paul since this as we have established is where
the sin nature is located.
23
As we have noted in our previous studies of the
book of Romans, the sin nature indwells the human
body and not the soul.
24
As we have noted many times in our studies of the
book of Romans, Adam acquired a sin nature when
he disobeyed the Lords command to not eat from
the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
25
Romans 512a, Therefore, based on this
(principle), just as, through one man, the sin
nature entered into the human race.
26
This sin nature was passed down to his
posterity, i.e. the human race.
27
Romans 519a, For you see, just as through the
one mans disobedience, the entire human race has
been rendered sinners.
28
The sin nature entered the human race through
the transgression of Adam in the Garden of Eden.
29
Romans 512a, Therefore, based on this
(principle), just as, through one man, the sin
nature entered into the human race.
30
The sin nature resides in the genetic structure
of the human body according to Romans 66.
31
Romans 66, This we are very familiar with
through instruction, namely, that our old man was
crucified with Him in order that the sinful body
would be deprived of its power with the result
that we are no longer in a perpetual state of
being slaves to the sin nature.
32
This is the result of the curse that the Lord
put on the body of Adam and his posterity
according to Genesis 318-19.
33
Genesis 318-19, Both thorns and thistles it
shall grow for you And you will eat the plants
of the field. By the sweat of your face you will
eat bread, till you return to the ground, because
from it you were taken For you are dust, and to
dust you shall return.
34
Physical death is the result of possessing a
sin nature since it resides in the human body.
35
Our Lord had to die physically to solve the
problem of the sin nature since the sin nature
resides in the body of every human being.
36
Our Lords resurrection body replaces the sinful
body of Adam.
37
The believer will receive a resurrection body
like Christ in order to replace his physical body
that possesses the sin nature, the Adamic body.
38
Romans 64, Therefore, we have been buried
with Him through baptism with respect to His
physical death in order that just as Christ was
raised from the dead ones through the glory of
the Father, in the same way, we, ourselves will
also walk in the realm of an extraordinary life.
39
Romans 65, Therefore, if and let us assume that
it is true for the sake of argument that we are
entered into union with Him, conformed to His
physical death. Of course, we believe this is
true. Then, certainly, we will also be united
with Him, conformed to His resurrection.
40
Christ also died physically in order to deprive
the indwelling sin nature its power over the
justified sinner and was raised from the dead to
permanently eradicate the indwelling sin nature.
41
In Romans 717, Paul is not saying that he is not
responsible for his actions but rather, he is
attempting to demonstrate his point in Romans
714 that he possesses a sin nature, which is
source of personal sin in his life.
42
If Paul was solely responsible for committing sin
and was the source of sin in his life, this would
not explain why he desires to do Gods will and
practices what he does not want to do and even
agrees with the Law that his actions are sinful.
43
If he was solely responsible, then he would not
have this struggle but the fact that he does
indicates that there is another power that is
soliciting and seducing him to do its bidding,
namely the sin nature.
44
This was a wonderful discovery for Paul for it
gave him hope that he could overcome sin if he
was given by God the power to do so, which God
did at the moment of salvation when the Holy
Spirit permanently indwells the Christians
physical body as the principle of victory over
the sin nature (1 Corinthians 316 Romans
81-11).
45
Therefore, in Romans 717, Paul is not escaping
responsibility for his sinful actions as a
Christian but rather he is simply trying to
identify for his Christians readers in Rome that
he does in fact like they do, possess a sin
nature that dwells in their bodies.
46
If Pauls Christian readers in Rome do not
acknowledge like Paul that they have a sin nature
indwelling their physical bodies and that they
need the power of the Spirit to overcome it, they
will continue to experience frustration over not
being able to obey Gods Word.
47
Galatians 516-17, But I say, walk by the
Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of
the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against
the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh for
these are in opposition to one another, so that
you may not do the things that you please.
