PT3 Well then, Should We Keep On Sinning so that God can show us more and more Kindness and Forgiveness? Of Course Not! Since we have Died To Sin, How Can We Continue To Live In It? Or have you forgotten that when we Became Christians We Were Baptized To Become One With Christ Jesus, We Died With Him? For We Died And Were Buried With Christ By Baptism. And just as Christ Was Raised From The Dead By The Glorious Power Of The Father, Now We Also May Live New Lives. Romans 6:1-4 Lesson here: There must be a Recognition Of The Two Realms, which are Forces At War With Each Other. "The Old Sinful Nature Loves To Do Evil, which is just the Opposite From What The Holy Spirit Wants. And The Spirit Gives Us Desires That Are Opposite From What The Sinful Nature Desires. These Two Forces Are Constantly Fighting Each Other, and Your Choices Are Never Free From This Conflict. But When You Are Directed By The Holy Spirit, You Are No Longer Subject To The Law." Galatians 5:17-18 "So, Dear brothers and sisters, You Have No Obligation Whatsoever To Do What Your Sinful Nature Urges You To Do. For if you keep on Following It, You Will Perish. But if Through The Power Of The Holy Spirit you Turn From It And It's Evil Deeds, You Will Live. For All Who Are Led By The Spirit Of God Are Children Of God." Romans 8:12-14 "Jesus replied, "The Truth is, No One Can Enter The Kingdom Of God Without Being Born of Water and The Spirit. Humans Can Reproduce Only Human Life, BUT The Holy Spirit Gives New Life from Heaven." John 3:5-6 It is Impossible to live A Fleshly Life In The Kingdom of God. And it is Equally Impossible To Live A Spiritual Life In The Flesh. There Must Be A Death and Burial to The Old Nature, before there can be A Resurrection Into The New Nature In Christ Jesus Yahshua! "So now there is no Condemnation For Those Who Belong To Christ Jesus. For The Power Of The Life-Giving Spirit Has Freed You Through Christ Jesus From The Power Of Sin That Leads To Death." Romans 8:1-2
