Q -Is Romans 7 the Christian life?
A -No, Paul was not speaking of Spirit filled believers in Romans 7.
Paul was speaking of himself(Unconverted) who was.
Carnal – To be carnally minded = death.
Sold under sin = to be a slave to sin.
Both being carnal and in bondage to sin are marks of the unsaved man. Jesus came to set us free from sin.
Romans 7 is about Pauls conscience being convicted by the law of God. Not the life of a Christian.
The Christian life is Romans 6 and 8.
