    • Is Paul Really Speaking Of A Personal Struggle With Sin?
      Thank you Willa.  I really thought my new found interpretation would be rejected as radical, but I see it is not.  @Enoob, thank you for your contribution.  It also seems to agree that Paul was speaking of life under the law rather than under grace.  While it is possible that we may not have every small detail completely identical, the basic conclusions are the same.  As I said earlier, this has been a very difficult passage for me.  Was Paul still a slave to sin?  That didn't make sense.  Was Paul sanctified by a second definite work of grace?  If he was, he never describes the experience.  I just kept feeling like I was missing something, and I appreciate the confirmation.

      Do you consider yourself well informed?  It is my experience that many people that consider themselves so have a shocking lack of variety in their sources of information.  
    • Is Paul Really Speaking Of A Personal Struggle With Sin?
      Before I answered this, I wanted a confirmation that what I was going to say was true.  As such, I looked up gnostic, and what was written about them in Wikepedia, and it does agree with my conclusions.  The gnostic religion as we know it was not around at the time when the Bible was written.  It is a second century religion.  There are no known gnostic writings known to exist anywhere before the second century.  None of the gnostic texts I have in my possession were written before the second century, so I would have to disagree with your conclusions that the book of 1 John had anything to do with refuting the gnostic religion.  You can look up gnostic and wikepedia and and read for yourself, but even without that confirmation, once again, there are no known gnostic writings that pre-date the second century.  As such, I take 1 John as written, along with my original interpretation of the meaning.

      That is why the ignorant stay that way.
